Peace.

Yes, all related verses are linked. 33:7 is primarily linked with 5:109 and 7:6 where the message bearers will also be questioned about the message that they were sent. This is confirmed by verse 33:8.

However, as in you question, there is also secondary linkage with 3:81 where an aspect of this covenant in 33:7 is elaborated (if messenger(s) come and confirm, then support them). A further example of 3:81 where covenants are taken "through" the prophets with the people is also found in 2:63 where another aspect is elaborated (Hold firmly what we have given you).

I hope that this helps.

Your brother in faith,
Joseph.
