3 Let all the saints rejoice, therefore, and  be exceeding glad, for Israel’s God is their  God: and he will mete out a just recompense of  reward upon the heads of all your oppressors.
4 And again, verily thus saith the Lord,  let the work of my , and all the works  which I have appointed unto you, be contin ued on and not cease; and let your diligence  and your perseverance, and patience, and  your works be redoubled; and you shall in no  wise lose your reward saith the Lord of Hosts.  And if they persecute you, so persecuted they  the prophets, and righteous men that were be fore you. For all this there is a reward in heaven
5 And again, I give unto you a word in re lation to the baptism for your dead. Verily,  thus saith the Lord unto you concerning your  dead: When any of you are baptised for your  dead, let there be a recorder; and let him be  eye witness of your baptisms; let him hear  with his ears, that he may testify of a truth,  saith the Lord; that in all your recordings, it  may be recorded in heaven; that whatsoever  you bind on earth, may be bound in heaven:  whatsoever you loose on earth may be loosed  in heaven; for I am about to restore many [p. 419]
