ment: for this was the day of vengeance  which was in my heart.
10 And now the year of my redeemed is  come, and they shall mention the loving kind ness of their Lord, and all that he has bestow ed upon them, according to his goodness, and  according to his loving kindness, forever and  ever. In all their afflictions he was afflicted.  And the angel of his presence saved them;  and in his love, and in his pity, he redeemed  them, and bare them, and carried them all the  days of old; yea, and Enoch also, and they  who were with him; the prophets who were  before him, and Noah also, and they who  were before him, and Moses also, and they  who were before him, and from Moses to Eli jah, and from Elijah to John, who were with  Christ in his resurrection, and the holy apos tles, with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, shall be  in the presence of the Lamb. And the graves  of the saints shall be opened, and they shall  come forth and stand on the right hand of the  Lamb, when he shall stand upon Mount Zion,  and upon the holy city, the New Jerusalem,  and they shall sing the song of the Lamb day  and night forever and ever.
11 And for this cause, that men might be  made partakers of the glories which were to  be revealed, the Lord sent forth the fulness of  his gospel, his everlasting covenant, reasoning  in plainness, and simplicity, to prepare the  weak for those things which are coming on  the earth; and for the Lord’s errand in the  day when the weak should confound the wise,  and the little one become a strong nation, [p. 436]
