the earth is full, and there is enough and to  spare; yea, I prepared all things, and have  given unto the children of men to be agents  unto themselves. Therefore, if any man shall  take of the abundance which I have made,  and impart not his portion, according to the  law of my gospel, unto the poor, and the needy,  he shall, with the wicked, lift up his eyes in  hell, being in torment.
3 And now, verily I say unto you, concern ing the properties of the order: let my servant   have appointed unto him the place  where he now resides, and the lot of Tahhanes [the tannery],  for his stewardship, for his support while he  is laboring in my vineyard, even as I will when  I shall command him; and let all things be done  according to counsel of the order, and united  consent, or voice of the order, which dwell in  the land of . And this stewardship  and blessing, I the Lord confer upon my ser vant , for a blessing upon him, and  his seed after him; and I will multiply blessings  upon him, inasmuch as he shall be humble be fore me.
4 And again, let my servan  have appointed unto him, for his stewardship,  the lot of land which my servant ob tained in exchange for his former inheritance,  for him and his seed after him; and inasmuch  as he is faithful, I will multiply blessings upon  him and his seed after him. And let my ser vant devote his moneys for the  proclaiming of my words, according as my  servant Gazelam [JS] shall direct. [p. 377]
