what man among you having twelve sons, and is no respecter to them, and
they serve him obediently, and he saith unto one be thou clothed in
robes, and sit thou here; and to the other, be thou clothed in rags, and sit
thou there, and looketh upon his sons and saith I am just: ye will answer,

your God, I appointed these Twelve that they should be equal in their
ministry, and in their portion, and in their evangelical rights, wherefore
they have sinned a very grievous sin, inasmuch as they have made
themselves unequal, and have not hearkened unto my voice: Therefore, let them
repent speedily, and prepare their hearts for the solemn Assembly, and for
the great day which is to come: Verily thus saith the Lord; Amen.
