saw, which we were commanded to write while we were yet  in the Spirit.
8 But great and marvellous are the works of the Lord and the  mysteries of his kingdom which he showed unto us, which  surpasses all understanding in glory, and in might, and in do minion, which he commanded us we should not write, while  we were yet in the Spirit, and are not lawful for man to utter;  neither is man capable to make them known, for they are only  to be seen and understood by the power of the Holy Spirit,  which God bestows on those who love him and purify them selves before him: to whom he grants this privilege of seeing  and knowing for themselves; that through the power and man ifestation of the Spirit, while in the flesh, they may be able to  bear his presence in the world of glory. And to God and the  Lamb be glory, and honor, and dominion forever and ever.—  Amen.

SECTION. XCII.
 
Revelation given March, 1833.
 
1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you, concerning the Apoc rypha, there are many things contained therein that are true,  and it is mostly translated correct: there are many things con tained therein that are not true, which are interpolations by  the hands of men. Verily I say unto you, that it is not need ful that the Apocrypha should be translated. Therefore,  whoso readeth it let him understand, for the Spirit manifesteth  truth; and whoso is enlightened by the Spirit shall obtain ben efit therefrom; and whoso receiveth not by the Spirit, cannot be  benefitted: therefore, it is not needful that it should be trans lated. Amen.
