5 And wo to him by whom this offence cometh, for  it had been better for him that he had been drown ed in the depth of the sea;
6 But blessed are they who have kept the covenant,  and observed the commandment, for they shall ob tain mercy:
7 Wherefore, go to now and flee the land, lest your  enemies come upon you:
8 And take your journey, and appoint whom you  will to be your leader, and to pay moneys for you.
9 And thus you shall take your journey into the  regions westward, unto the land of , unto  the borders of the Lamanites.

11 And again, be patient in tribulation until I  come:
12 And behold I come quickly, and my reward is  with me, and they who have sought me early, shall  find rest to their souls; even so: Amen.
