8 And also, that you might be honored of laying  the foundation, and of bearing record of the land  upon which the Zion of God shall stand;
9 And also, that a feast of fat things might be  prepared for the poor;
10 Yea a feast of fat things, of wine on the lees  well refined, that the earth may know that the mouths  of the prophets shall not fail;
11 Yea, a supper of the house of the Lord, well  prepared, unto which all nations shall be invited.
12 Firstly the rich, and the learned, the wise and  the noble;
13 And after that cometh the day of my power:
14 Then shall the poor, the lame and the blind,  and the deaf, come in unto the marriage of the Lamb,  and partake of the supper of the Lord, prepared for  the great day to come.
15 Behold I the Lord have spoken it.
16 And that the testimony might go forth from  Zion; yea from the mouth of the city of the heri tage of God:

18 And have selected my servant and ap pointed unto him his mission in this land:
19 But if he repent not of his sins, which are un belief and blindness of heart, let him take heed lest  he fall.
20 Behold his mission is given unto him and it  shall not be given again.
21 And whoso standeth in this mission, is appoin ted to be a judge in Israel, like as it was in ancient [p. 134]
