ding to these things, shall be saved, and he that doeth them  not shall be damned, if he continues.
17 If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revela tion; knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the  mysteries, and peaceable things; that which bringeth joy, that  which bringeth life eternal. Thou shalt ask, and it shall be  revealed unto you in mine own due time, where the New Je rusalem shall be built.
18 And behold, it shall come to pass, that my servants shall  be sent forth to the east, and to the west, to the north, and to  the south; and even now, let him that goeth to the east, teach  them that shall be converted to flee to the west; and this in  consequence of that which is coming on the earth, and of se cret combinations. Behold thou shalt observe all these things,  and great shall be thy reward; for unto you it is given to know  the mysteries of the kingdom, but unto the world it is not giv en to know them. Ye shall observe the laws which ye have  received, and be faithful. And ye shall hereafter receive  church covenants, such as shall be sufficient to establish you,  both here, and in the New Jerusalem. Therefore, he that  lacketh wisdom, let him ask of me, and I will give him liber ally, and upbraid him not. Lift up your hearts and rejoice,  for unto you the kingdom, or in other words, the keys of the  church, have been given; even so Amen.
19 The priests and teachers shall have their stewardships,  even as the members, and the elders, or high priests who are  appointed to assist the bishop as counsellors, in all things are  to have their families supported out of the property which is  consecrated to the bishop, for the good of the poor, and for  other purposes, as before mentioned; or they are to receive a  just remuneration for all their services; either a stewardship,  or otherwise, as may be thought best, or decided by the coun sellors and bishop. And the bishop also, shall receive his sup port, or a just remuneration for all his services, in the church.
20 Behold, verily I say unto you, that whatever persons  among you having put away their companions for the cause  of fornication, or in other words, if they shall testify before  you in all lowliness of heart that this is the case, ye shall not  cast them out from among you; but if ye shall find that any  persons have left their companions for the sake of adultery,  and they themselves are the offenders, and their companions  are living, they shall be cast out from among you. And  again I say unto you, that ye shall be watchful and careful,  with all inquiry, that ye receive none such among you if they  are married, and if they are not married, they shall repent of  all their sins, or ye shall not receive them.
