4 Now this commandment I give unto my  servants for their benefit while they remain,  for a manifestation of my blessings upon their  heads, and for a reward of their diligence;  and for their security for food and for raiment,  for an inheritance; for their houses and for  lands, in whatsoever circumstances I the Lord  shall place them; and whithersoever I the Lord  shall send them: for they have been faithful  over many things, and have done well inas much as they have not sinned. Behold I the  Lord am merciful and will bless them, and  they shall enter into the joy of these things;  even so: Amen. [p. 224]
