21 I the Lord was angry with you yesterday, but  today my anger is turned away:
22 Wherefore let those concerning whom I have  spoken, that should take their journey in haste:
23 Again I say unto you, let them take their jour ney in haste, and it mattereth not unto me, after a  little, if it so be that they fill their mission, whether  they go by water or by land:
24 Let this be as it is made known unto them ac cording to their judgments, hereafter.
25 And now, concerning my servants , and  Joseph, and , let them come not again upon  the waters, save it be upon the canal, while jour neying unto their homes, or in other words they  shall not come upon the waters to journey, save  upon the canal.
26 Behold I the Lord have appointed a way for  the journeying of my saints, and behold this is the  way:
27 That after they leave the canal, they shall  journey by land, inasmuch as they are commanded  to journey and go up unto the land of Zion; and  they shall do like unto the children of Israel, pitch ing their tents by the way.
28 And behold this commandment, you shall give  unto all your brethren: nevertheless unto whom it  is given power to command the waters, unto him it  is given by the Spirit to know all his ways:
29 Wherefore let him do as the Spirit of the liv ing God commandeth him, whether upon the land  or upon the waters, as it remaineth with me to do  hereafter;
30 And unto you it is given the course for the  saints, or the way for the saints of the camp of the  Lord, to journey. [p. 147]
