priests, even down to the deacons: and this shall be the order  of the house of the presidency of the school: He that is ap pointed to be president, or teacher, shall be found standing  in his place, in the house, which shall be prepared for him.  Therefore, he shall be first in the house of God, in a place  that the congregation in the house may hear his words care fully and distinctly, not with loud speech. And when he  cometh into the house of God, (for he should be first in the  house; behold this is beautiful, that he may be an example,)
40 Let him offer himself in prayer upon his knees before God,  in token, or remembrance, of the everlasting covenant, and  when any shall come in after him let the teacher arise, and  with uplifted hands to heaven; yea, even directly, salute his  brother or brethren with these words:
41 Art thou a brother or brethren, I salute you in the name  of the Lord Jesus Christ, in token, or remembrance of the ev erlasting covenant, in which covenant I receive you to fellow ship in a determination that is fixed, immovable and unchang able, to be your friend and brother though the grace of God,  in the bonds of love, to walk in all the commandments of God  blameless, in thanksgiving, forever and ever. Amen.
42 And he that is found unworthy of this salutation, shall  not have place among you; for ye shall not suffer that mine  house shall be polluted by them.
43 And he that cometh in and is faithful before me, and is a  brother, or if they be brethren, they shall salute the president  or teacher with uplifted hands to heaven with this same pray er and covenant, or by saying, Amen, in token of the same.
44 Behold, verily I say unto you, this is a sample unto you  for a salutation to one another in the house of God, in the  school of the prophets. And ye are called to do this by pray er and thanksgiving as the Spirit shall give utterance, in all  your doings in the house of the Lord, in the school of the  prophets, that it may become a sanctuary, a tabernacle, of the  Holy Spirit to your edification.
45 And ye shall not receive any among you, into this school  save he is clean from the blood of his generation; and he shall  be received by the ordinance of the washing of feet; for unto  this end was the ordinance of the washing of feet instituted.
46 And again, the ordinance of washing feet is to be adminis tered by the president, or presiding elder of the church. It is  to be commenced with prayer: and after partaking of bread  and wine he is to gird himself, according to the pattern given  in the thirteenth chapter of John’s testimony concerning me.  Amen. [p. 108]
