and Two should put their tens of thousands to flight;  and by the weak things of the earth, the Lord should  thresh the nations by the power of his spirit. And  for this cause these were given; and they  were commanded to be kept from the world in the day  that they were given, but now are to go forth unto  all flesh. And this according to the mind and will  of the Lord, who ruleth over all flesh; and unto  him that repenteth and sanctifieth himself before  the Lord, shall be given eternal life. And upon  them that hearken not unto the voice of the Lord,  shall be fulfilled that which was written by the  Prophet Moses, that they should be cut off from  among the people.
7 And also that which was written by the pro phet Malachi: For behold the day cometh that shall  burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all  that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day that  cometh shall burn them up saith the Lord of Hosts,  that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.  Wherefore this shall be the answer of the Lord unto them:  In that day when I came unto my own, no man  among you received me, and you were driven  out. When I called again, there was none of you  to answer, yet my arm was not shortened at all , that I could not redeem, neither my power  to deliver. Behold at my rebuke I dry up the  sea. I make the rivers a wilderness; their fish  Stinketh, and dieth for thirst. I clothe the heavens  with blackness, and make sackcloth their cov ering. And this shall ye have of my hand, ye  shall lie down in sorrow.
8. Behold and lo there are none to deliver  you, for ye obeyed not my voice when I called  to you out of the heavens, ye believed not my  servants; and when they were sent unto you ye  received them not: wherefore they up the tes timony and bound up the law, and ye were deliv ered over unto darkness: these shall go away into [p. 171]
