5 And behold this commandment you shall  give unto all your brethren: nevertheless unto  whom it is given power to command the wa ters, unto him it is given by the Spirit to know  all his ways: wherefore let him do as the Spir it of the living God commandeth him, wheth er upon the land or upon the waters, as it re maineth with me to do hereafter; and unto  you it is given the course for the saints, or the  way for the saints of the camp of the Lord,  to journey. And again, verily I say unto you,  my servants , and Joseph Smith,  jr. and , shall not open their  mouths in the congregations of the wicked,  until they arrive at ; and in that  place they shall lift up their voices unto God  against that people: yea, unto him whose an ger is kindled against their wickedness; a peo ple who are well nigh ripened for destruction;  and from thence let them journey for the con gregations of their brethren, for their labors,  even now, are wanted more abundantly  among them, than among the congregations  of the wicked.
6 And now concerning the residue, let them  journey and declare the word among the con gregations of the wicked, inasmuch as it is  given, and inasmuch as they do this they shall  rid their garments, and they shall be spotless  before me; and let them journey together, or  two by two, as seemeth them good, only let  my servant , and my servant  , with whom I am well plea sed, be not separated until they return to their  homes, and this for a wise purpose in me.— [p. 307]
5 And behold this commandment you shall give unto all your brethren: nevertheless unto whom it is given power to command the waters, unto him it is given by the Spirit to know all his ways: wherefore let him do as the Spirit of the living God commandeth him, whether upon the land or upon the waters, as it remaineth with me to do hereafter; and unto you it is given the course for the saints, or the way for the saints of the camp of the Lord, to journey. And again, verily I say unto you, my servants , and Joseph Smith, jr. and , shall not open their mouths in the congregations of the wicked, until they arrive at ; and in that place they shall lift up their voices unto God against that people: yea, unto him whose anger is kindled against their wickedness; a people who are well nigh ripened for destruction; and from thence let them journey for the congregations of their brethren, for their labors, even now, are wanted more abundantly among them, than among the congregations of the wicked.
6 And now concerning the residue, let them journey and declare the word among the congregations of the wicked, inasmuch as it is given, and inasmuch as they do this they shall rid their garments, and they shall be spotless before me; and let them journey together, or two by two, as seemeth them good, only let my servant , and my servant , with whom I am well pleased, be not separated until they return to their homes, and this for a wise purpose in me.— [p. 307]
