ders, which are commanded to return: and he that  is able, let him return it by the way of the agent,  and he that is not, of him it is not required.
15 And now I speak of the residue which are to  come unto this land.
16 Behold they have been sent to preach my gos pel among the congregations of the wicked:
17 Wherefore, I give unto them a commandment,  thus:
18 Thou shalt not idle away thy time:
19 Neither shalt thou bury thy talent that it may  not be known.
20 And after thou hast come up unto the land of  Zion, and hast proclaimed my word, thou shalt  speedily return proclaiming the word among the con gregations of the wicked.
21 Not in haste, neither in wrath, nor with strife:
22 And shake off the dust of thy feet against those  who receive thee not, not in their presence, lest thou  provoke them, but in secret, and wash thy feet as a  testimony against them in the day of judgment.
23 Behold this is sufficient for you, and the will of  him who hath sent you.
24 And by the mouth of my servant Joseph, it  shall be made known concerning and
25 The residue hereafter; even so: Amen. [p. 144]
