50 And at that day when I shall come in my glo ry, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake con cerning the ten virgins:
51 For they that are wise and have received the  truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide,  and have not been deceived;
52 Verily I say unto you, they shall not be hewn  down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day,  and the earth shall be given unto them for an in heritance:
53 And they shall multiply and wax strong, and  their children shall grow up without sin unto salva tion, for the Lord shall be in their midst, and his  glory shall be upon them, and he will be their King  and their Lawgiver.
54 And now, behold I say unto you, it shall not  be given unto you to know any farther than this, un til the new testament be translated, and in it all  these things shall be made known;
55 Wherefore I give unto you that ye may now  translate it, that ye may be prepared for the things  to come;
56 For verily I say unto you, that great things  await you;
57 Ye hear of wars in foreign lands, but behold I  say unto you they are nigh even unto your doors,  and not many years hence ye shall hear of wars in  your own lands.
58 Wherefore I the Lord have said gather ye out  from the eastern lands, assemble ye yourselves to gether ye elders of my church;
59 Go ye forth into the western countries, call  upon the inhabitants to repent, and inasmuch as  they do repent, build up churches unto me; and with  one heart and with one mind, gather up your riches [p. 109]
50 And at that day when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake concerning the ten virgins:
51 For they that are wise and have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived;
52 Verily I say unto you, they shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day, and the earth shall be given unto them for an inheritance:
53 And they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation, for the Lord shall be in their midst, and his glory shall be upon them, and he will be their King and their Lawgiver.
54 And now, behold I say unto you, it shall not be given unto you to know any farther than this, until the new testament be translated, and in it all these things shall be made known;
55 Wherefore I give unto you that ye may now translate it, that ye may be prepared for the things to come;
56 For verily I say unto you, that great things await you;
57 Ye hear of wars in foreign lands, but behold I say unto you they are nigh even unto your doors, and not many years hence ye shall hear of wars in your own lands.
58 Wherefore I the Lord have said gather ye out from the eastern lands, assemble ye yourselves together ye elders of my church;
59 Go ye forth into the western countries, call upon the inhabitants to repent, and inasmuch as they do repent, build up churches unto me; and with one heart and with one mind, gather up your riches [p. 109]
