Zion, and the glory of this, the corner stone thereof; that  he may receive also, the council from those whom I  have set to be as plants of renown, and as watchmen  upon her walls.
Behold, verily I say unto you, let my servant  , and my servant , and my  servant , and my servant , organ ize themselves, and appoint one of them to be a president  over their quorum for the purpose of building that ,  and they shall form a constitution whereby they may  receive stock, for the building of that . And they  shall not receive less than fifty dollars for a share of  stock in that , and they shall be permitted to receive  fifteen thousand dollars from any one man for stock in  that ; but they shall not be permitted to receive  over fifteen thousand dollars stock, from any one man;  and they shall not be permitted to receive under fifty  dollars for a share of stock from any one man in that  , and they shall not be permitted to receive any  man as a stockholder in that , except the same  shall pay his stock into their hands at the time he  receives stock, and in proportion to the amount to the  amount of stock he pays into their hands, he shall re ceive stock in that ; but if he pay nothing into  their hands, he shall not receive any stock in that  , and if any man pay stock into their hands it  shall be for stock in that , for himself and for  his generation after him, from generation to generation, so  long as he, and his heirs shall hold that stock, and  do not sell, or convey that stock away out of their hands  by their own free will and act— if you will do my will  saith the Lord your God.
And again verily I say unto you if my servant  , and my servant , and my ser vant and my servant , receive  any stock into their hands, in monies or in property properties where in they receive the real value of monies, they shall not  appropriate any portion of that stock to any other purpose  only in that , and if they do appropriate any  portion of that stock any where else, only in that ,  without the consent of the stockholder, and do not  repay four fold for the stock which they appropiate  any where else, only in that , they shall be accur sed, and shall be moved out of their place saith the  Lord God, for I the Lord am God and cannot be mocked  in any of these things.
