Behold I the Lord am not well pleased with many who are in the  church at for they do not forsake their sins & their wick ed ways the pride of their hearts & their coveetousness & all their detest able things & observe the words of wisdom & eternal life which  I have given unto them verily I say unto you that I the Lord will  chasten them & will do whatsoever I list if they do not repent  & observe all things whatsoever I have said unto them & again  I say unto you if ye observe to do whatsoever I command you I  the Lord will turn away all wrath & indignation from you &  the gates of hell shall not prevail against you.
Now I speak unto you concerning your families if men will  smite you or your families once & ye bear it patiently & ye  revile not against them neither seek revenge ye shall be reward ed but if ye bears it not patiently it shall be accounted unto you  as being meeted out a Just measure unto you. And again if  your enemies shall smite you a second time & you revile  not against your enemies & yu be bear it patiently your reward shall  be an hundrd fold And again if he Shall smite you a third time  & ye bear it patiently your reward shall be doubled unto you four  fold & these three testimonies shall stand against your enemy  if he repent not & shall not be blotted out & now verily I say unto  you if that enemy shall escape my vengeance that he be not brought  into Judgment before me then ye shall see to it that ye warn him  in my name that he come no more upon you neither upon  your family either your Children or your Childrens children unto  the third & fourth generation & then if he shall come upon you or  your Children or your childrens children unto the third & fourth  generation I have deliverd thine enemy into thine hands & then  if thou wilt spare him thou shalt be rewarded for thy righteousness  & thy children & thy childrens children unto the third & fourth gen eration Neverth[e]less thine enemy is in thine hands & if thou rewa rd him according to his works thou art Justified. If he has sought  thy life & thy life is endangered by him thine enemy is in thine  hand & thou art Justified Behold this is the law I gave unto [p. 175]
