American Covenanter Republication Quote

“The first case of social covenanting related in scripture is that at mount Horeb, in the wilderness of Sinai, immediately after the children of Israel came out of Egypt. In this transaction the moral law is distinctly announced, as the matter of the covenant into which they entered with God. When this was republished, it was not as a renovation of the covenant of works; nor was it as a remedial law, by giving a sincere, though imperfect obedience to which, the people of Israel were to be justified. The whole transaction was in subserviency to the covenant of redemption.” —David Scott, “Distinctive Principles of the Reformed Presbyterian Church” (1841), p. 38
