And inasmuch as they are faithful unto  me, it shall be made known unto them what they shall do: and  it shall also, inasmuch as they are faithful, be made known un to them the land of your inheritance. And inasmuch as they  are not faithful, they shall be cut off, even as I will, as seem eth me good.

And again, I will give unto you a pattern in all  things, that ye may not be deceived, for satan is abroad in the  land, and he goeth forth deceiving the nations: wherefore he  that prayeth whose spirit is contrite, the same is accepted of  me, if he obey mine ordinances: he that speaketh, whose spir it is contrite, whose language is meek, and edifieth, the same  is of God, if he obey mine ordinances.
