and ye are found hypocrites, and the covenants which  you have made unto me are broken; and if these properties  are mine, then ye are stewards, otherwise ye are no stewards:  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 commanded you to organize yourselves,  even to print my word, the fullness of my Scriptures, the  revelations which I have given unto you, and which I shall  hereafter, 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 comeing which is  nigh at hand. Therefore, a commandment I give unto you,  that ye shall take the books of Mormon and also the copy- right, and also the copy-right which shall be secured of the  Articles and covenants, in which covenants all my comm andments which it is my will should be printed, shall be  printed, as it shall be made known unto you; and also  the copy-right of the New translation of the scriptures; and  this I say that others may not take the blessings away from  you which I have conferred upon you. And ye shall pre pare for yourselves a place for a treasury and consecrate  it unto my name, and ye shall appoint one among you to keep  the treasury; 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 from this very hour; and now see to it, that  ye go to and make use of the stewardships which I have  appointed unto you exclusive of these sacred things,  for the purpose of printing these sacred things, according  as I have said; and the avails of these sacred things shall  be had in the treasury, and a seal shall be upon it, &  it shall not be used or taken out of the treasury by [p. 105]
