they shall observe the to do them, and these shall be their teachings as they shall be
directed by the Spirit; and the spirit shall be given unto you by the prayer of
faith, and if ye receive not the Spirit, ye shall not teach. And all this ye shall
observe to do as I have , concern ing your teaching, until the fulness of my scriptures are
given. And as ye shall lift up your voices by the Comforter, ye shall speak and
prophesy as seemeth me good; for behold the Comforter knoweth all things, and beareth
record of the father and of the Son.
6. And now, behold I speak unto the : Thou shalt not kill; and he
that kills shall not have forgiveness, in this world nor the world to come.
7. And again, I say thou shalt not kill; but he that killeth shall
die. Thou shalt not steal; and he that steals and will not repent, shall be cast
out. Thou shalt not lie; he that lieth and will not repents, shall be cast out. Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shall
cleave unto her and none else; and he that looketh upon a woman to lust after her,
shall deny the faith, and shall not have the spirit; and if he repents not he shall be
cast out. Thou shalt not commit adultery; and the that com mitteth adultery and
repenteth not, shall be cast out; but he that <has>
committed adultery and repents with all his heart, and forsaketh it, and doeth no
more, thou shalt forgive; but if he doeth it again, he shall not be forgiven, but
shall be cast out. Thou shalt not speak evil of thy neighbor, nor do him any
harm. Thou knowest my laws concerning these things are given in my scriptures: he
that sinneth and repenteth not, shall be cast out.

properties for their support, that which thou hast to impart unto them, with a

substance unto the poor, ye will do it unto me— and they shall be laid before the

9. And it shall come to pass that after they are laid before the
bishop of my church, and after that he has received these testimonies [p. 96]
