Kings of the earth! Come ye, O! come ye with your gold and your silver, to
the help of my people, to the house of the daughter of Zion.
And, again, verily I say unto you,
let my servant, , help you to write this
proclamation, for I am well pleased with him, and that he should be with
you, let him therefore hearken to your council counsel and I
will bless him with a multiplicity of blessings, let him be faithful and
true in all things from henceforth and he shall be great in mine eyes; but let
him remember that his stew ardship will I require at his hands.
verily, I say unto you, blessed is my servant , for I the Lord loveth him, because of the integrity of his
heart, and because, he loveth that which is right before me saith the
Again, let my servant help you in your labor, in sending my word to the
Kings and peoples of the Earth, and stand by you, even

reward shall not fail, if he receive council counsel,
and for his love, he shall be great, for he shall be mine if he do this, saith
the Lord. I have seen the work he hath done, which I accept, if he continue,

has to my testimony, I the Lord loveth him. I therefore say unto you I
seal upon his head the office of a “bishoprick” like unto my servant
, that he may receive the
consecrations of mine house, that he may administer blessings upon the

and my servant
, and my servant
, and others, build a
unto my name,
such an one
