1 Behold, I say unto you, here is wisdom whereby ye may  know how to act concerning this matter: for it is expedient in  me that this stake that I have set for the strength of Zion,  should be made strong: therefore, let my servant  take charge of the place which is named among you, upon  which I design to build mine holy : and again let it be  divided into lots according to wisdom, for the benefit of those  who seek inheritances, as it shall be determined in council  among you. Therefore, take heed that ye see to this matter,  and that portion that is necessary to benefit mine order, for  the purpose of bringing forth my word to the children of men,  for behold verily I say unto you, this is the most expedient in  me, that my word should go forth unto the children of men,  for the purpose of subduing the hearts of the children of men,  for your good; even so. Amen.
2 And again, verily I say unto you, it is wisdom and expedi ent in me, that my servant , whose offering I have ac cepted, and whose prayers I have heard; unto whom I give a  promise of eternal life inasmuch as he keepeth my command ments from henceforth; for he is a descendant of Seth [Joseph], and a  partaker of the blessings of the promise made unto his fathers.  Verily I say unto you, it is expedient in me that he should  become a member of the order, that he may assist in bringing  forth my word unto the children of men: therefore ye shall  ordain him unto this blessing: and he shall seek diligently to  take away incumbrances, that are upon the house named  among you, that he may dwell therein; even so. Amen. [p. 234]
