39 He who has faith to see, shall see; he who has  faith to hear, shall hear; the lame who have faith  to leap, shall leap; and they who have not faith  to do these things, but believe in me, have power to  become my sons, and inasmuch as they break not  my laws, thou shalt bear their infirmities.
40 Thou shalt stand in the place of thy steward ship:
41 Thou shalt not take thy brother’s garment;  thou shalt pay for that which thou shalt receive of  thy brother.
42 And if thou obtainest more than that which  would be for thy support, thou shalt give it into my  storehouse, that all things may be done according  to that which I have spoken.
43 Thou shalt ask and my scriptures shall be giv en as I have appointed; and for thy safety it is ex pedient that thou shouldst hold thy peace concern ing them, until ye have received them:
44 Then I give unto you a commandment that ye  shall teach them unto all men; and they also shall  be taught unto all nations, kindreds, tongues and  people.
45 Thou shalt take the things which thou hast re ceived, which thou knowest to have been my law,  to be my law, to govern my church; and he that  doeth according to these things shall be saved, and  he that doeth them not shall be damned, if he con tinue.
46 If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation  upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that  thou mayest know mysteries, and the peaceable  things of the kingdom; that which bringeth joy, that  which bringeth life eternal.
47 Thou shalt ask and it shall be revealed unto [p. 94]
