Perpetuity of existence. The doctrine of immortality is taught in the Old Testament. It is plainly implied in the writings of "Moses (Gen. 5:22, 24; 25:8; 37:35; 47:9; 49:29, comp. Heb." "11:13-16; Ex. 3:6, comp. Matt. 22:23). It is more clearly and" fully taught in the later books (Isa. 14:9; Ps. 17:15; 49:15; 73:24). It was thus a doctrine obviously well known to the Jews.
