the Lord hath decreed to provide for my saints, that  the poor shall be exalted in that the rich are made  low; for the earth is full and there is enough and to  spare; yea, I have prepared all things, and have given unto  the children of men to be agents unto themselves: Therefore,  if any man shall take of the abundance which I have made  and impart not his portion according to the law of my  Gospel unto the poor and the needy, he shall with Dives  lift up his eyes being in torment.
And now, verily I say unto you concerning the properties of  the Firm; let my servant have appointed unto him, the  place where he now resides, and the lot of the Tannery for his  stewardship for his support while he is labouring in my vineyard,  even as I will, when I shall command him; and let all things be  done according to counsel of the Firm, and united consent or  voice of the Firm which dwells in the land of . And  this stewardship and blessing, I the Lord confer upon my servant   for a blessing upon him and upon his seed after  him inasmuch as he shall be humble before me.
And again, let my servant have appointed unto  him for his stewardship the lot of land which my servant   obtained in exchange for his farm, for him and his seed  after him; and inasmuch as he is faithful I will multiply a mul tiplicity of blessings upon him and his seed after him. And let  my servant devote his moneys for the printing of my  word according as my servant Joseph shall direct.
And again, let my servant have the place upon  which he now dwells; and let my servant have the lot  which is set off joining the house which is to be for the  printing office, which is lot number one, and also the lot  upon which his resides; and let my servants  and have the printing office and all things that  pertain unto it; and this shall be their stewardships which  shall be appointed unto them; and inasmuch as they are faithful, [p. 102]
