The men and women from every section of society who signed the Covenant including the noblemen and ministers were not rebels. In addition to being drawn up to protect the Protestant religion from the changes which had recently been introduced and any amendments which might be made in the future, it was also aimed at demonstrating the belief that the men and women who signed the historic document were in covenant with God. The Covenant was drawn up to ensure that the form of worship they practiced, the security of the Crown and the peace of the kingdom remained secure. The document was not drawn up to stir up a rebellion against the King.
