be permitted to see. And thou shalt do it with all humility,  trusting in me, reviling not against revilers. And of tenets  thou shalt not talk, but thou shalt declare repentance and faith  on the Savior, and remission of sins by baptism and by fire; yea,  even the Holy Ghost.
5 Behold, this is a great, and the last commandment which I  shall give unto you concerning this matter: for this shall suf fice for thy daily walk even unto the end of thy life. And  misery thou shalt receive, if thou wilt slight these counsels;  yea, even destruction of thyself and property. Impart a por tion of thy property; yea, even part of thy lands and all save  the support of thy family. Pay the debt thou hast contracted  with the printer. Release thyself from bondage. Leave thy  house and home, except when thou shalt desire to see thy  family. And speak freely to all: yea, preach, exhort, declare  the truth, even with a loud voice; with a sound of rejoicing,  crying hosanna! hosanna! blessed be the name of the Lord  God.
6 Pray always and I will pour out my Spirit upon you, and  great shall be your blessing: yea, even more than if you should  obtain treasures of earth, and corruptibleness to the extent  thereof. Behold, canst thou read this without rejoicing and  lifting up thy heart for gladness; or canst thou run about lon ger as a blind guide; or canst thou be humble and meek and  conduct thyself wisely before me: yea, come unto me thy Sa vior. Amen.
