of seventies, which quorum is instituted for  travelling elders to bear record of my name  in all the world, wherever the travelling high  council, my apostles, shall send them to pre pare a way before my face. The difference  between this quorum and the quorum of elders  is, that one is to travel continually, and the  other is to preside over the churches from  time to time, the one has the responsibility of  presiding from time to time and the other has  no responsibility of presiding, saith the Lord  your God.
45 And again I say unto you, I give unto  you , , and   if he will receive it to pre side over the Bishopric, a knowledge of said  Bishopric is given unto you, in the Book of  Doctrine and Covenants.
46 And, again, I say unto you  and his councillors for Priests, and the presi dent of the Teachers and his councillors and  also the president of the Deacons and his  councillors, and also the president of the Stake  and his councillors: the above offices I have  given unto you, and the keys thereof for helps  and for governments, for the work of the min istry, and the perfecting of my saints, and a  commandment I give unto you that you should  fill all these offices and approve of those names  which I have mentioned or else disapprove of  them at my general conference, and that ye  should prepare rooms for all these offices in  my house when you build it unto my name  saith the Lord your God: even so: Amen.
