1 Harken unto the voice of the Lord your God while I speak unto you my daughter for verily I say unto you all those who receive my gospel are sons and daughters in my Kingdom
A Revelation I give unto you concerning my will and if thou art faithful and walk in the paths of virtue before me I will preserve thy life and thou shalt receive an inheritance in Zion. Behold thy sins are forgiven thee and thou art an elect Lady whom I have called.
Murmur not because of the things which thou hast not seen for they are withheld from thee and from the world which is wisdom in me in a time to come
2 And the office of thy calling shall be for a comfort unto my servant Joseph Smith Jr. thy husband in his afflictions with consoling words in the Spirit of meekness. And thou shalt go with him at the time of his going and be unto him <for> a scribe while there is none to be a scribe for him that I may send my servant whithersoever I will. And thou shalt be ordained under his hand to expound scriptures and to exhort the church according as it shall be given thee by my Spirit for he shall lay his hands upon thee and thou shalt receive the Holy Ghost and thy time shall be given to writing and learning much. And thou needst not fear for thy husband shall support thee in the church: for unto them is his calling that all things might be revealed unto them whatsoever I will according to their faith
3 And verily I say unto thee that thou shalt lay aside the things of this world and seek for the things of a better. And it shall be given thee also to make a selection of sacred hyms as it shall be given the[e] which is pleasing unto me to [be] had in [p. 84]
