13 And it shall be answered with a blessing upon  their heads.
14 Wherefore lift up thy heart and rejoice, and  cleave unto the covenants which thou hast made.
15 Continue in the spirit of meekness, and beware  of pride.
16 Let thy soul delight in thy husband, and the  glory which shall come unto him.
17 Keep my commandments continually, and a  crown of righteousness thou shalt receive.
18 And except thou do this, where I am you can not come.
19 And verily, verily I say unto you, that this is  my voice unto all. Amen.
