instead of a blessing
3 And thou shalt continue <in> calling upon God in my name, and writing the things which shall be given thee by the comforter, and expounding all scriptures unto the church and it shall be given thee in the very moment what thou shalt say and write, and they shall hear it or I will <send> unto them <a> cursing instead of a blessing
4 For thou shalt devote all thy service in Zion and in this thou shalt have strength Be patient in afflictions for thou shalt have many: but endure them for lo I am with you even unto the end of your <thy> days And in temporal labors thou shalt not have strength for this is not thy calling Attend to thy calling and tho[u] shalt have wherewith to to magnify thine office, and to expound all scriptures And continue in laying on of the hands and confirmng the churches
5 And thy brother shall continue in bearing my name before the world and also to the church And he shall not suppose that he can say enough in my cause and lo I am with him to the end In me he shall have glory and not of himself whether in weakness or in strength whether in bonds or free And at all times in all places he shall open his mouth and declare my gospel as with the voeice of a trump both day and night, and I will give unto him strength such as is not known among men
6 Requi[r]e not miracles except I shall command you, except casting out devils. healing the sick and against poisonous serpents and against deadly poisons and these things ye shall not do except it be required of you by those who desire it that the scriptures might be fulfilled for ye shall do according to that which is desired written And into whatsoever place ye shall enter and they receive you not in my name, ye shall leave a cursing [p. 83]
