perpetuity of existence. The doctrine of immortality is taught in the Old Testament. It is plainly implied in the writings of Moses ( Genesis 5:22 Genesis 5:24 ; 25:8 ; 37:35 ; 47:9 ; 49:29 , Compare Hebrews 11:13-16 ; Exodus 3:6 , Compare Matthew 22:23 ). It is more clearly and fully taught in the later books ( Isaiah 14:9 ; Psalms 17:15 ; 49:15 ; 73:24 ). It was thus a doctrine obviously well known to the Jews.
