And thou  shalt be ordained under his hand to expound scriptures, and to  exhort the church, according as it shall be given thee by my  Spirit: for he shall lay his hands upon thee, and thou shalt re ceive the Holy Ghost, and thy time shall be given to writing,  and to learning much. And thou needst not fear, for thy hus band shall support thee in the church: for unto them is his  calling, that all things might be revealed unto them, whatso ever I will, according to their faith.
3 And verily I say unto thee, that thou shalt lay aside the  things of this world, and seek for the things of a better. And  it shall be given thee, also, to make a selection of sacred  Hymns, as it shall be given thee, which is pleasing unto me,  to be had in my church: for my soul delighteth in the song of  the heart: yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me.  And it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads.—  Wherefore lift up thy heart and rejoice, and cleave unto the  covenants which thou hast made.
4 Continue in the spirit of meekness, and beware of pride.  Let thy soul delight in thy husband, and the glory which shall  come upon him. Keep my commandments continually, and  a crown of righteousness thou shalt receive. And except thou  do this, where I am you cannot come. And verily, verily I  say unto you, that this is my voice unto all. Amen.
