1 Verily, verily I say unto you my servant , listen to the voice of him who speaketh, to the  word of the Lord your God, and hearken to the calling where with you are called, even to be a high priest in my church,  and a counsellor unto my servant Joseph Smith, jr. unto whom  I have given the keys of the kingdom, which belongeth always  unto the presidency of the high priesthood: therefore, verily I  acknowledge him and will bless him, and also thee, inasmuch  as thou art faithful in council, in the office which I have ap pointed unto you, in prayer always vocally, and in thy heart,  in public and in private; also in thy ministry in proclaiming  the gospel in the land of the living, and among thy brethren:  and in doing these things thou wilt do the greatest good unto  thy fellow-beings, and will promote the glory of him who is  your Lord: wherefore, be faithful, stand in the office which I  have appointed unto you, succor the weak, lift up the hands  which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees: and if thou  art faithful unto the end thou shalt have a crown of immortal ity and eternal life in the mansions which I have prepared in  the house of my Father. Behold, and lo, these are the words  of Alpha and Omega, even Jesus Christ. Amen.

Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the  capacity of the weak, and the weakest of all saints, who are or  can be called saints.
 
1 Behold, verily thus saith the Lord unto you, in conse quence of evils and designs which do, and will exist in the  hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you,  and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by  revelation, that inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong  drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the  sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together,  to offer up your sacraments before him. And behold this  should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of [p. 207]
