1 Hearken, O ye people of my church, saith the Lord your  God, and hear the word of the Lord concerning you; the Lord  who shall suddenly come to his temple: the Lord who shall  come down upon the world with a curse to judgment; yea,  upon all the nations that forget God, and upon all the ungod ly among you. For he shall make bare his holy arm in the  eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see  the salvation of their God. Wherefore, prepare ye, prepare  ye, O my people; sanctify yourselves; gather ye together, O  ye people of my church, upon the land of Zion, all you that  have not been commanded to tarry. Go ye out from Babylon.  Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord. Call your sol emn assemblies, and speak often one to another. And let ev ery man call upon the name of the Lord; yea, verily I say un to you, again, the time has come when the voice of the Lord  is unto you, Go ye out of Babylon; gather ye out from among  the nations, from the four winds, from one end of heaven to  the other.
2 Send forth the elders of my church unto the nations which  are afar off; unto the islands of the sea; send forth unto for eign lands; call upon all nations; firstly, upon the Gentiles,  and then upon the Jews. And behold and lo, this shall be  their cry, and the voice of the Lord unto all people: Go ye  forth unto the land of Zion, that the borders of my people may  be enlarged, and that her stakes may be strengthened, and that  Zion may go forth unto the regions round about: yea, let the  cry go forth among all people; Awake and arise and go forth  to meet the Bridegroom: behold and lo the Bridegroom com eth, go ye out to meet him. Prepare yourselves for the great  day of the Lord. Watch, therefore, for ye know neither the  day nor the hour. Let them, therefore, who are among the  Gentiles, flee unto Zion. And let them who be of Judah, flee  unto Jerusalem, unto the mountains of the Lord’s house. Go  ye out from among the nations, even from Babylon, from the  midst of wickedness, which is spiritual Babylon. But verily  thus saith the Lord, let not your flight be in haste, but let all  things be prepared before you: and he that goeth, let him not  look back, lest sudden destruction shall come upon him.
3 Hearken and hear O ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen  ye elders of my church together, and hear the voice of the  Lord, for he calleth upon all men and he commandeth all men  every where to repent: for behold the Lord God hath sent [p. 247]

2 Send forth the elders of my church unto the nations which are afar off; unto the islands of the sea; send forth unto foreign lands; call upon all nations; firstly, upon the Gentiles, and then upon the Jews.
