13 And let the residue take that which is needful  for clothing.
14 Let my servant take that which is not  needful with him, as you shall agree.
15 And now behold, for your good I gave unto  you a commandment concerning these things; and  I the Lord will reason with you as with men in  days of old.
16 Behold I the Lord in the beginning, blessed  the waters, but in the last days by the mouth of my  servant John, I cursed the waters:
17 Wherefore, the days will come that no flesh  shall be safe upon the waters, and it shall be said  in days to come, that none is able to go up to the  land of Zion, upon the waters, but he that is upright  in heart.
18 And, as I the Lord in the beginning cursed  the land, even so in the last days have I blessed it,  in its time, for the use of my saints, that they may  partake the fatness thereof.

20 I the Lord have decreed, and the destroyer ri deth upon the face thereof, and I revoke not the  decree: [p. 146]
