9 Yea, his weeping for Zion I have seen, and I  will cause that he shall mourn for her no longer, for  his days of rejoicing are come unto the remission of  his sins, and the manifestations of my blessings up on his works.
10 For behold, I will bless all those who labor in  my vineyard, with a mighty blessing, and they shall  believe on his words, which are given him through  me, by the Comforter:
11 Which manifesteth that Jesus was crucified by  sinful men for the sins of the world;
12 Yea, for the remission of sins unto the contrite  heart.
13 Wherefore, it behooveth me, that he should be  ordained by you, , mine apostle;
14 This being an ordinance unto you, that you are  an elder under his hand, he being the first unto you,  that you might be an elder unto this church of  Christ, bearing my name;
15 And the first preacher of this church, unto the  church, and before the world; yea, before the Gen tiles:
16 Yea, and thus saith the Lord God, lo, lo, to  the Jews, also. Amen. [p. 46]
