38 Wherefore you shall testify they are of me,  and not of man; for it is my voice which speaketh  hem unto you:
39 For they are given by my Spirit unto you:
40 And by my power you can read them one to  another; and save it were by my power, you could  not have them:
41 Wherefore you can testify that you have heard  my voice, and know my words.
42 And now behold I give unto you, , and  also unto , that you shall search out the twelve  which shall have the desires of which I have spoken;  and by their desires and their works, you shall know  them:
43 And when you have found them you shall  show these things unto them.
44 And you shall fall down and worship the Fa ther in my name:
45 And you must preach unto the world, saying,  you must repent and be baptized in the name of Je sus Christ:
46 For all men must repent and be baptized; and  not only men, but women and children, which have  arriven to the years of accountability.
47 And now, after that you have received this,  you must keep my commandments in all things:
48 And by your hands I will work a marvelous  work among the children of men, unto the convin cing of many of their sins, that they may come unto  repentance; and that they may come unto the king dom of my Father:
49 Wherefore the blessings which I give unto you  are above all things.
50 And after that you have received this, if you  keep not my commandments, you cannot be saved [p. 38]
38 Wherefore you shall testify they are of me, and not of man; for it is my voice which speaketh hem unto you:

43 And when you have found them you shall show these things unto them.
44 And you shall fall down and worship the Father in my name:
45 And you must preach unto the world, saying, you must repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ:
46 For all men must repent and be baptized; and not only men, but women and children, which have arriven to the years of accountability.
47 And now, after that you have received this, you must keep my commandments in all things:
48 And by your hands I will work a marvelous work among the children of men, unto the convincing of many of their sins, that they may come unto repentance; and that they may come unto the kingdom of my Father:
49 Wherefore the blessings which I give unto you are above all things.
50 And after that you have received this, if you keep not my commandments, you cannot be saved [p. 38]
