hearts are not satisfied. And ye obey not the truth, but have  pleasure in unrighteousness.
5 Wo unto you rich men, that will not give your substance  to the poor, for your riches will canker your souls! and this  shall be your lamentation in the day of visitation, and of judg ment, and of indignation: The harvest is past, the summer is  ended, and my soul is not saved! Wo unto you poor men,  whose hearts are not broken, whose spirits are not contrite,  and whose bellies are not satisfied, and whose hands are not  stayed from laying hold upon other men’s goods, whose eyes  are full of greediness, who will not labor with their own  hands!
6 But blessed are the poor, who are pure in heart, whose  hearts are broken, and whose spirits are contrite, for they shall  see the kingdom of God coming in power and great glory unto  their deliverance: for the fatness of the earth shall be theirs:  for behold the Lord shall come, and his recompense shall be  with him, and he shall reward every man, and the poor shall  rejoice: and their generations shall inherit the earth from gen eration to generation, forever and ever. And now I make an  end of speaking unto you; even so. Amen.

SECTION LXX.
 
Revelation given August, 1831.
 
1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto the elders of his church,  who are to return speedily to the land from whence they came.  Behold it pleaseth me, that you have come up hither; but with  some I am not well pleased, for they will not open their mouths,  but hide the talent which I have given unto them, because of  the fear of man. Wo unto such, for mine anger is kindled  against them.
2 And it shall come to pass, if they are not more faithful un to me, it shall be taken away, even that which they have, for  I the Lord ruleth in the heavens above, and among the armies  of the earth; and in the day when I shall make up my jewels,  all men shall know what it is that bespeaketh the power of  God. But verily I will speak unto you concerning your jour ney unto the land from whence you came. Let there be a  craft made, or bought, as seemeth you good, it mattereth not  unto me, and take your journey speedily for the place which  is called . And from thence let my servants , and Joseph Smith, jr. and , take their  journey for : and in this place let them lift up their  voice, and declare my word with loud voices, without wrath [p. 198]

5 Wo unto you rich men, that will not give your substance to the poor, for your riches will canker your souls! and this shall be your lamentation in the day of visitation, and of judgment, and of indignation: The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and my soul is not saved! Wo unto you poor men, whose hearts are not broken, whose spirits are not contrite, and whose bellies are not satisfied, and whose hands are not stayed from laying hold upon other men’s goods, whose eyes are full of greediness, who will not labor with their own hands!
6 But blessed are the poor, who are pure in heart, whose hearts are broken, and whose spirits are contrite, for they shall see the kingdom of God coming in power and great glory unto their deliverance: for the fatness of the earth shall be theirs: for behold the Lord shall come, and his recompense shall be with him, and he shall reward every man, and the poor shall rejoice: and their generations shall inherit the earth from generation to generation, forever and ever.
