shall be hurled from their places; and his voice  shall be heard, I have trodden the wine-press  alone, and have brought forth judgment  upon all people; and none was with me; and  I have trampled them in my fury, and I did  tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood  have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained  all my raiment: for this was the day of vengeance  which was in my heart. And now the year of  my redeemed is come, and they shall mention  the loving kindness of their Lord, and all that  he has bestowed upon them, according to his  goodness, and according to his loving kindness,  forever & ever. And 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 bore  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  Moses also, and they who were before him,  and from Moses to Elijah, and from Elijah  to John,— who were with christ in his resurrection,  and the holy apostles, 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 ,  and they shall sing the song of the Lamb day and  night forever and ever.
6 And for this cause, that men might be  made partakers of the glories which were to be reveal ed, 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 shall confound  the wise, and the little one become a strong nation, [p. 170]
