By my Almighty power that ye confess your sins lest ye suffer these punishments of which I have spoken of which in the smalest yea in the least decree ye have tasted at a time I withdrew my spirit I command you that ye preach naught but repentance & shew not these things neither speak these things unto the World. for they cannot bear meat but milk they must receive. Wherefore, they must not know these things lest they perish Wherefore learn of me & listen to my words walk in the meekness of my spirit & ye shall have peace in me (Jesus Christ) by the will of the Father & again I command you that thou shalt not covet thy Neibours wife. nor seek thy Neibours life. & again I command you that thou shalt not covet thine own Property but impart it freely to the printing of the Books of Mormon which contains of the word of God which is my word to Gentile that soon it may go to the Jew of which the Lamanites of are a Remnant that they may Believe the Gospel & look not for a Masiah to come which has already come & again I command you that thou shalt pray vocally as well as to thyself yea before the World as well as in seecret in Publick as well as in private & thou shalt declare glad tidings yea Publish it upon the Mountains & upon evry high place & among evry People which thou shalt be permited to see & thou shalt do it with all humility trusting in me Reviling not against Revilers & of tenets thou shalt not talk talk but thou shalt declare Repentance & faith on the Saveiour & Remissions of Sins by Baptism & by fire yea even the Holy Ghost Behold this is a great & last commandment which I shall give unto you for this shall suffice for thy daily walk even unto the end of thy life & misery shalt thou Receive if thou wilt sleight these Councils yea even distruction of thyself & Property. Impart a portion of thy Property yea even a part of thy lands & all save the support of thy family Pay the Printers debt Release thyself from Bondage Leave thy House & home except when thou shalt desire to see them & speak freely to all yea Preach exhort declare the truth even
