“The notion of a Covenant adds assurance to that of a promise, as it implies a special Bond of favour and friendship, which belongs unto Fœderal-Interest and Relation; for a Covenant is the foundation of a special Relation betwixt the parties concerned therein; the kind and benefit of which Relation is determined by the Covenant it self, the Nature, Promises, and End thereof.” (Page 7)

“Therefore the Good and Glory of any Covenant, that God makes with Men, whether it be considered absolutely, or in comparison with another Covenant, is chiefly to be measured by the Promises and Terms thereof; if one Covenant be established upon better Promises (i.e. either promising a more excellent Good, or in a more excellent Way) then another, it is from thence denominated, and for that reason to be esteemed, a better Covenant then the other.” (Pages 9–10)

“If they be without Strength, with respect to the Condition and end of that Covenant, which once they had Interest in, and Principles suited to; then are they so much more, while they remain in their lapsed state, with respect unto the terms of another Covenant more excellent and mysterious, and wholly supernatural as to the Doctrine and Terms thereof.” (Page 11)

“and therefore did directly bind its Subjects to a legal Obedience;” (Page 193)

“Spiritual Strength, and Ability to please God, can no way be restored to them, but by a new Covenant-interest, and that new Creation which is the adjunct thereof.” (Page 11)
