13 And it shall come to pass, among the  wicked, that every man that will not take his  sword against his neighbor, must needs flee un to Zion for safety. And there shall be gather ed unto it out of every nation under heaven:  and it shall be the only people that shall not be  at war one with another. And it shall be said  among the wicked, Let us not go up to battle  against Zion, for the inhabitants of Zion are  terrible. Wherefore we cannot stand.
14 And it shall come to pass that the righte ous shall be gathered out from among all na tions, and shall come to Zion singing, with songs  of everlasting joy.
15 And now I say unto you, keep these  things from going abroad unto the world, until  it is expedient in me, that ye may accomplish  this work in the eyes of the people, and in the  eyes of your enemies, that they may not know  your works until ye have accomplished the  thing which I have commanded you: that  when they shall know it, that they may con sider these things, for when the Lord shall ap pear he shall be terrible unto them, that fear  may seize upon them, and they shall stand  afar off and tremble: and all nations shall be  afraid because of the terror of the Lord, and  the power of his might; even so: Amen. [p. 186]
