But verily, I  say unto you, I have appointed unto you to be stewards over mine  house, even stewards indeed, and for this purpose have I com manded you to organize yourselves, even to print my word  words, the fulness of my Scriptures, the revelations which I have  given unto you, and which I shall hereafter give from time to time  give unto you, for the purpose of building up my church and  kingdom on the earth, and to prepare my people for the time  of my coming which is nigh at hand. Therefore a command ment I give unto you, that ye shall take the books of Mormon  and also the copy right, and also the copyright which shall  be secured of the articles and covenants, in which covenants, all  my commandments, which it is my will should be printed,  shall be printed, as it shall be made known unto you; and  also, the copy right to the new translation of the scriptures; and  this is I my say that others may not take the blessings away from  you which I have conferred upon you. And ye shall prepare  for yourselves a place for a treasury, and consecrate it unto my  name, and ye shall appoint one among you to keep the treas ury and he shall be ordained unto this blessing, and there shall  be a seal upon the treasury, and all these Sacred things shall  be delivered into the treasury, and no man among you shall  call it his own or any part of it, for it shall belong to you all  with one accord, and I give it unto you forom this very hour;  and now see to it, that ye go to and make use of it, the  stewardship which I have appointed unto you, exclusive of [p. 196]
