unto the end of thy days. And in temporal labors thou shalt  not have strength, for this is not thy calling. Attend to thy  calling and thou shalt have wherewith to magnify thine office,  and to expound all scriptures. And continue in laying on of  the hands, and confirming the churches.
5 And thy brother shall continue in bearing my name  before the world; and also to the church. And he shall not  suppose that he can say enough in my cause; and lo I am  with him to the end. In me he shall have glory, and not of  himself, whether in weakness or in strength, whether in bonds  or free: And at all times and in all places, he shall open his  mouth and declare my gospel as with the voice of a trump,  both day and night. And I will give unto him strength such  as is not known among men.
6 Require not miracles, except I shall command you; except  casting out devils; healing the sick; and against poisonous  serpents; and against deadly poisons; and these things ye  shall not do, except it be required of you, by them who desire  it, that the scriptures might be fulfilled, for ye shall do accor ding to that which is written. And in whatsoever place ye  shall enter, and they receive you not, in my name, ye shall  leave a cursing instead of a blessing, by casting off the dust of  your feet against them as a testimony, and cleansing your feet  by the wayside.
7 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall lay their  hands upon you by violence, ye shall command to be smitten  in my name, and behold I will smite them according to your  words, in mine own due time. And whosoever shall go to law  with thee shall be cursed by the law. And thou shalt take no  purse, nor scrip, neither staves, neither two coats, for the  church shall give unto thee in the very hour what thou need est for food, and for raiment, and for shoes, and for money,  and for scrip: For thou art called to prune my vineyard with  a mighty pruning, yea, even for the last time. Yea, and also,  all those whom thou hast ordained. And they shalt do even  according to this pattern. Amen.
