forth among all nations, and it shall be told them what they  shall do: for I have a great work laid up in store: for Israel  shall be saved, and I will lead them whithersoever I will, and  no power shall stay my hand.
8 And now I give unto the church in these parts, a com mandment, that certain men among them shall be appointed,  and they shall be appointed by the voice of the church; and  they shall look to the poor and the needy, and administer to  their relief, that they shall not suffer; and send them forth to  the place which I have commanded them; and this shall be  their work, to govern the affairs of the property of this church.  And they that have farms that cannot be sold, let them be left  or rented as seemeth them good. See that all things are pre served, and when men are endowed with power from on high,  and sent forth, all these things shall be gathered unto the bo som of the church.
9 And if ye seek the riches which it is the will of the Father  to give unto you, ye shall be the richest of all people; for ye  shall have the riches of eternity: and it must needs be that the  riches of the earth is mine to give: but beware of pride, lest  ye become as the Nephites of old. And again I say unto you,  I give unto you a commandment, that every man, both elder,  priest, teacher and also member, go to with his might, with  the labor of his hands, to prepare and accomplish the things  which I have commanded. And let your preaching be the  warning voice, every man to his neighbor, in mildness and in  meekness. And go ye out from among the wicked. Save  yourselves. Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord;  even so: Amen.

1 Hearken, O ye elders of my church who have assembled  yourselves together, in my name, even Jesus Christ, the Son  of the living God, the Savior of the world; inasmuch as they  believe on my name and keep my commandments; again I  say unto you, hearken and hear and obey the law which I  shall give unto you: for verily I say, as ye have assembled  yourselves together according to the commandment wherewith  I commanded you, and are agreed as touching this one thing,  and have asked the Father in my name, even so ye shall re ceive.
2 Behold, verily I say unto you, I give unto you this first  commandment, that ye shall go forth in my name, every one [p. 120]
