30 And this I do for the salvation of my people.
31 And it shall come to pass, that he that sinneth  and repenteth not shall be cast out, and shall not  receive again that which he has consecrated unto  me:
32 For it shall come to pass, that which I spake  by the mouths of my prophets shall be fulfilled; for  I will consecrate the riches of the Gentiles, unto  my people which are of the house of Israel.
33 And again, thou shalt not be proud in thy heart:  let all thy garments be plain, and their beauty the  beauty of the work of thine own hands, and let all  things be done in cleanliness before me.
34 Thou shalt not be idle; for he that is idle shall  not eat the bread, nor wear the garments of the la borer.
35 And whosoever among you that are sick, and  have not faith to be healed, but believeth, shall be  nourished in all tenderness with herbs and mild food,  and that not of the world; and the elders of the  church, two or more shall be called, and shall pray  for, and lay their hands upon them in my name,  and if they die, they shall die unto me; and if they  live they shall live unto me.
36 Thou shalt live together in love, insomuch that  thou shalt weep for the loss of them that die, and  more especially for those that have not hope of a  glorious resurrection.
37 And it shall come to pass, that those that die  in me shall not taste of death, for it shall be sweet  unto them; and they that die not in me, wo unto  them; for their death is bitter.
38 And again, it shall come to pass, that he that  has faith in me to be healed, and is not appointed  unto death, shall be healed. [p. 93]
