shall take your journey with your brother , for the time has come, that it is expedient  in me, that you shall open your mouth to de clare my gospel: therefore, fear not but give  heed unto the words and advice of your broth er, which he shall give you. And be you af flicted in all his afflictions, ever lifting up your  heart unto me in prayer, and faith, for his and  your deliverance: for I have given unto him  power to build up my church among the La manites: and none have I appointed to be his  councillor, over him, in the church, concern ing church matters, except it is his brother  Joseph Smith, jr. Wherefore give heed unto  these things and be diligent in keeping my com mandments, and you shall be blessed unto eter nal life: Amen.
3 Behold I say unto you, my servant ,  that thou shalt commence from this time forth  to proclaim my gospel, as with the voice of a  trump. And your labor shall be at your  brother , and in that region  round about: yea, wherever you can be heard,  until I command you to go from hence. And  your whole labor shall be in Zion, with all  your soul, from henceforth; yea, you shall  ever open your mouth in my cause not fearing  what man can do, for I am with you: Amen.

And be you afflicted in all his afflictions, ever lifting up your heart unto me in prayer, and faith, for his and your deliverance: for I have given unto him power to build up my church among the Lamanites: and none have I appointed to be his councillor, over him, in the church, concerning church matters, except it is his brother Joseph Smith, jr. Wherefore give heed unto these things and be diligent in keeping my commandments, and you shall be blessed unto eternal life: Amen.
