9 Behold I say unto you, that it shall be on the  borders by the Lamanites.
10 Thou shalt not leave this place until after the  conference, and my servant Joseph shall be appoin ted to rule the conference by the voice of it, and  what he saith to thee, that thou shalt tell.
11 And again, thou shalt take thy brother  between him and thee alone, and tell him that those  things which he hath written from that stone are not  of me, and that satan deceiveth him:
12 For behold these things have not been appoin ted unto him:
13 Neither shall any thing be appointed unto any of  this church contrary to the church covenants, for all  things must be done in order and by common con sent in the church, by the prayer of faith.
14 And thou shalt settle all these things according  to the covenants of the church before thou shalt take  thy journey among the Lamanites.
15 And it shall be given thee from the time that  thou shalt go, until the time that thou shalt return,  what thou shalt do.
16 And thou must open thy mouth at all times  declaring my gospel with the sound of rejoicing.—  Amen. [p. 68]
