32 And of tenets thou shalt not talk, but thou  shalt declare repentance and faith on the Savior and  remission of sins by baptism and by fire; yea, even  the Holy Ghost.
33 Behold this is a great and the last command ment which I shall give unto you:
34 For this shall suffice for thy daily walk even  unto the end of thy life.
35 And misery thou shalt receive, if thou wilt  slight these counsels: Yea, even destruction of thy self and property.
36 Impart a portion of thy property; Yea, even a  part of thy lands and all save the support of thy  family.
37 Pay the printer’s debt.
38 Release thyself from bondage.
39 Leave thy house and home, except when thou  shalt desire to see them.
40 And speak freely to all: Yea, preach, exhort,  declare the truth, even with a loud voice; with a  sound of rejoicing, crying hosanna! hosanna! bles sed be the name of the Lord God.
41 Pray always and I will pour out my Spirit upon  you, and great shall be your blessing:
42 Yea, even more than if you should obtain treas ures of earth, and corruptibleness to the extent  thereof.
43 Behold, canst thou read this without rejoicing,  and lifting up thy heart for gladness; or canst thou  run about longer as a blind guide; or canst thou be  humble and meek and conduct thyself wisely before  me:
44 Yea, come unto me thy Savior. Amen. [p. 42]
