2 Wherefore, go to now and flee the land, lest your enemies  come upon you: and take your journey, and appoint whom you  will to be your leader, and to pay moneys for you.

And af ter you have done journeying, behold I say unto you, seek ye  a living like unto men, until I prepare a place for you.

1 Behold thus saith the Lord unto you, my servant ;  yea, even the Lord of the whole earth, thou art called and cho sen and after thou hast been baptized by water, which if you  do with an eye single to my glory, you shall have a remission  of your sins, and a reception of the Holy Spirit, by the laying  on of hands. And then thou shalt be ordained by the hand of  my servant Joseph Smith, jr. to be an elder unto this church,  to preach repentance and remission of sins by way of baptism  in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; and  on whomsoever you shall lay your hands, if they are contrite  before me, you shall have power to give the Holy Spirit.
2 And again, you shall be ordained to assist my servant to do the work of printing, and of selecting, and  writing books for schools, in this church, that little children  also may receive instruction before me as is pleasing unto me.  And again verily I say unto you, for this cause you shall take  your journey with my servants Joseph Smith, jr. and , that you may be planted in the land of your inherit ance, to do this work.
3 And again let my servant also take his journey  with them. The residue shall be made known hereafter; even  as I will: Amen. [p. 196]
