31 And again, verily I say unto you, my servants  , and Joseph, and , shall not open their  mouths in the congregations of the wicked, until  they arrive in ;
32 And in that place they shall lift up their voices  unto God against that people.
33 Yea, unto him whose anger is kindled against  their wickedness; a people which is well nigh ri pened for destruction;
34 And from thence let them journey for the con gregations of their brethren, for their labors, even  now, are wanted more abundantly among them,  than among the congregations of the wicked.
35 And now concerning the residue, let them  journey and declare the word among the congrega tions of the wicked, inasmuch as it is given, and  inasmuch as they do this they shall rid their gar ments, and they shall be spotless before me;
36 And let them journey together, or two by two,  as seemeth them good, only let my servant , and my servant , with whom I am  well pleased, be not separated until they return  to their homes, and this for a wise purpose in me.
37 And now verily I say unto you, and what I  say unto one I say unto all, be of good cheer little  children for I am in your midst, and I have not for saken you, and inasmuch as you have humbled  yourselves before me, the blessings of the kingdom  are yours:
38 Gird up your loins and be watchful, and be  sober, looking forth for the coming of the Son of  man, for he cometh in an hour you think not.
39 Pray always that you enter not into tempta tion, that you may abide the day of his coming,  whether in life or in death; even so: Amen. [p. 148]
