shall go forth, & they shall not be taken from the earth until I  have completed my work which shall be cut short in righteous ness; until all shall know me, who remain, even from the least  unto the greatest, and shall be filled with the knowledge of the  Lord, and shall see eye to eye, and shall lift up their voice,  and with the voice together sing this new song, saying,
17 The Lord hath brought again Zion:
The Lord hath redeemed his people, Israel,
According to the election of grace,
Which was brought to pass by the faith,
And covenant of their fathers.
The Lord hath redeemed his people,
And satan is bound, and time is no longer:
The Lord hath gathered all things in one:
The Lord hath brought down Zion from above:
The Lord hath brought up Zion from beneath;
The earth hath travailed and brought forth her strength;
And truth is established in her bowels;
And the heavens have smiled upon her;
And she is clothed with the glory of her God:
For he stands in the midst of his people:
Glory, and honor, and power, and might,
Be ascribed to our God, for he is full of mercy,
Justice, grace and truth, and peace,
For ever and ever Amen.
18 And again, verily, verily I say unto you, it is expedient,  that every man who goes forth to proclaim mine everlasting  gospel, that inasmuch as they have families and receive mon eys by gift, that they should send it unto them, or make use  of it for their benefit, as the Lord shall direct them, for thus it  seemeth me good. And let all those who have not families,  who receive moneys, send it up unto the bishop in Zion, or  unto the bishop in , that it may be consecrated for the  bringing forth of the revelations and the printing thereof, and  for establishing Zion.
19 And if any man shall give unto any of you a coat, or a  suit, take the old and cast it unto the poor, and go your way  rejoicing. And if any man among you be strong in the Spirit,  let him take with him he that is weak, that he may be edified  in all meekness, that he may become strong also.
20 Therefore, take with you those who are ordained unto  the lesser priesthood, and send them before you to make ap pointments, and to prepare the way, and to fill the appointments  that you yourselves are not able to fill. Behold this is the  way that mine apostles, in ancient days, built up my church  unto me. [p. 94]
