(Isa. 49:5-6; Isa. 56:1-3; Mat. 5:17-18)

We believe with complete faith the words of Moses the prophet, when he said that Israel will return to the Lord their God, and obey Him with all their heart and with all their soul, then even if they are exiled to the ends of the earth, He will gather them and from there He will bring them back into the land that his ancestors possessed and that he will possess it; and He will make him more numerous and prosperous than his ancestors.
