en, then shall you assist in bringing to light,  with your gift, those parts of my scriptures  which have been hidden because of iniquity.
13 And now, behold I give unto you, and  also unto my servant Joseph, the keys of this  gift, which shall bring to light this ministry;  and in the mouth of two or three witnesses,  shall every word be established.
14 Verily, verily I say unto you, if they re ject my words, and this part of my gospel and  ministry, blessed are ye, for they can do no  more unto you than unto me; and if they do  unto you, even as they have done unto me,  blessed are ye, for you shall dwell with me in  glory: but if they reject not my words, which  shall be established by the testimony which  shall be given, blessed are they; and then shall  ye have joy in the fruit of your labors.
15 Verily, verily I say unto you, as I said  unto my disciples, where two or three are  gathered together in my name, as touching  one thing, behold there will I be in the midst  of them: even so am I in the midst of you.—  Fear not to do good my sons, for whatsoever  ye sow, that shall ye also reap: therefore, if  ye sow good, ye shall also reap good for your  reward:
16 Therefore fear not little flock, do good,  let earth and hell combine against you, for if  ye are built upon my Rock, they cannot pre vail. Behold I do not condemn you, go your  ways and sin no more: perform with sober ness the work which I have commanded you;  look unto me in every thought, doubt not, fear [p. 149]
