mighty power, that you confess your sins, lest you  suffer these punishments of which I have spoken, of  which in the smallest, yea, even in the least degree  you have tasted at tbe [the] time I withdrew my Spirit.
22 And I command you, that you preach nought  but repentance; and show not these things, neither  speak these things unto the world, for they can not  bear meat, but milk they must receive:
23 Wherefore, they must not know these things  lest they perish:
24 Wherefore, learn of me, and listen to my words;  walk in the meekness of my Spirit and you shall  have peace in me, Jesus Christ by the will of the  Father.
25 And again: I command you, that thou shalt  not covet thy neighbor’s wife.
26 Nor seek thy neighbor’s life.
27 And again: I command you, that thou shalt  not covet thine own property, but impart it freely to  the printing of the book of Mormon, which contains  the truth and the word of God, which is my word to  Gentile, that soon it may go to the Jew, of which  the Lamanites are a remnant; that they may be lieve the gospel, and look not for a Messiah to come  which has already come.
28 And again: I command you, that thou shalt  pray vocally as well as to thyself:
29 Yea, before the world as well as in secret; in  public as well as in private.
30 And thou shalt declare glad tidings; yea, pub lish it upon the mountains, and upon every high  place, and among every people which thou shalt be  permitted to see.
31 And thou shalt do it with all humility, trusting  in me, reviling not against revilers. [p. 41]
