neither the angels in heaven, nor shall they know  until he come:
9 Wherefore I will that all men shall repent, for  all are under sin, except them which I have reser ved unto myself, holy men that ye know not of:
10 Wherefore I say unto you, that I have sent  unto you mine everlasting covenant, even that which  was from the beginning, and that which I have  promised I have so fulfilled, and the nations of the  earth shall bow to it;
11 And, if not of themselves, they shall come  down, for that which is now exalted of itself, shall  be laid low of power:
12 Wherefore I give unto you a commandment,  that ye go among this people and say unto them,  like unto mine apostle of old, whose name was Pe ter:
13 Believe on the name of the Lord Jesus, who  was on the earth, and is to come, the beginning and  the end;
14 Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus  Christ, according to the holy commandment, for  the remission of sins;
15 And whoso doeth this, shall receive the gift of  the Holy Ghost, by the laying on of the hands of  the elders of this church.
16 And again, I say unto you, that whoso forbid deth to marry, is not ordained of God, for marriage  is ordained of God unto man:
17 Wherefore it is lawful that he should have one  wife, and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this  that the earth might answer the end of its creation;  and that it might be filled with the measure of man,  according to his creation before the world was  made: [p. 117]
neither the angels in heaven, nor shall they know until he come:
9 Wherefore I will that all men shall repent, for all are under sin, except them which I have reserved unto myself, holy men that ye know not of:
10 Wherefore I say unto you, that I have sent unto you mine everlasting covenant, even that which was from the beginning, and that which I have promised I have so fulfilled, and the nations of the earth shall bow to it;
11 And, if not of themselves, they shall come down, for that which is now exalted of itself, shall be laid low of power:
12 Wherefore I give unto you a commandment, that ye go among this people and say unto them, like unto mine apostle of old, whose name was Peter:
13 Believe on the name of the Lord Jesus, who was on the earth, and is to come, the beginning and the end;
14 Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, according to the holy commandment, for the remission of sins;
15 And whoso doeth this, shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, by the laying on of the hands of the elders of this church.
