1 Behold I say unto you David
To , and
1 Behold I say unto you that you have  feared man and not relied on me for strength as  you ought; but your mind has been on the things  of the earth more than on the the things of me your  Maker, and the min[i]stry where unto you have been  called, and you have not given heed <unto> to my spirit and to  those who were set over you; but have been pursuaded  by those whom I have not commanded: wherefore you are  left to enquire for yourself at my hand and ponder upon  the things which you have recieved
And your house shall be at your s house until I give  unto you further commandments And you shall attend  <to> the ministry in the church and before the world and  in the regions around about Amen
2 Behold I say unto you that you shall take  your journey with you[r] brother for the time has  come that it is expedient in me that you shall open  your mouth to declare my gospel. Therefore fear  not but give heed unto the words and advice of your  . which he shall give you And be you  afflicted in his afflictions ever lifting up your  heart <unto m> in prayer unto me in prayer and faith  for his and your deliverance. for I have given  unto him power to build up my church among the  Lamanites; and none have I appointed to be his  counsellor over him in the church concerning Church  matters except it be his brother Joseph Smith Jr  Wherefo[r]e give heed unto these things and be diligent  in keeping my commandments and you shall  be b[l]essed unto eternal life Amen
3 Behold I say unto you my servant that  thou shalt commence from this time fortt  to proclaim my gospel as with the voice of a  trump And your labour shall be at your  brother and in that region [p. 98]
