CHAPTER LX.
 
A Revelation to the church, given in Zion, Au gust, 1831.
BEHOLD, blessed saith the Lord, are they who  have come up unto this land with an eye single  to my glory, according to my commandments:
2 For them that live shall inherit the earth, and  them that die shall rest from all their labors, and their  works shall follow them, and they shall receive a  crown in the mansions of my Father, which I have  prepared for them;
3 Yea, blessed are they whose feet stand upon  the land of Zion, who have obeyed my gospel, for  they shall receive for their reward the good things of  the earth;
4 And it shall bring forth in its strength:
5 And they also shall be crowned with blessings  from above;
6 Yea and with commandments not a few;
7 And with revelations in their time:
8 They that are faithful and diligent before me:
9 Wherefore I give unto them a commandment,  saying thus:
10 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy  heart, with all thy might, mind, and strength:
11 And in the name of Jesus Christ thou shalt  serve him.
12 Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
13 Thou shalt not steal.
14 Neither commit adultery, nor kill, nor do any  thing like unto it.
15 Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things.
16 Thou shalt offer a sacrifice unto the Lord thy  God in righteousness: [p. 140]
