Mormon which contains the truth and the word of  God which is my word to the Gentiles. that soon  it may go to the Jews of whom the Lamenites are  a remnant that they may believe the gospel and  look not for a Messiah to come who has already  come
4 And again I command thee that thou shalt  pray vocally as well as in thy heart yea before  the world as well as in secret in publick as well  as in private. And thou shalt declare glad  tidings yea publish it upon the mountains and  upon every high place and among every people  that thou shalt be permitted to see. And thou  shalt do it with all humility trusting in me  reviling not against revilers. And of tenets thou  shalt not talk, but thou shalt declare repentance  and faith on the Savior and remission of Sins  by baptism and by fire yea even the Holy Ghost.
5 Behold this is a great and the last comman dments which I shall give unto you concerning this  matter for this shall suffice for thy daily walk  even unto the end of thy life. And misery  thou shalt receive if thou wilt slight these  counsels yea even destruction of thyself and  property. Impart a portion of thy property  yea even part with thy lands and all save the sup port of thy family. Pay the debt thou hast con tracted with the printer. Release thyself from bon dage. Leave thy house and home except when thou  shalt desire to see thy family. And speak freely  to all: yea preach exhort declare the truth even  with a loud voice, with a sound of rejoicing crying  hosanna! hosanna! blessed be the name of the Lord [p. 64]
