must needs come by power; therefore, I will raise up unto my people a man who shall lead them like as Moses led the children of Israel;13

Earlier revelations also designated JS as one “like unto Moses.” (See Revelation, 11 Nov. 1831–B [D&C 107:91]; and Revelation, Sept. 1830–B [D&C 28:2].)  


for ye are the children of Israel, & of the seed of Abraham;14

A September 1832 revelation explained that those who obtain the greater and lesser priesthoods and magnify their calling “are sanctified by the spir[i]t unto the renewing of there bodies that they become the sons of Moses and of Aaron and the seed of Abraham.” (Revelation, 22–23 Sept. 1832 [D&C 84:33–34]; see also Galatians 3:29.)  


& ye must needs be led out of bondage by power, & with a stretched out arm.15

Several passages in the Old Testament explain that the children of Israel were brought out of bondage in Egypt through God’s power and his “stretched out arm.” (See, for example, Exodus 6:6; Deuteronomy 9:29; and 2 Kings 17:36.)  


And as your Fathers were led at the first even so shall the redemtion of Zion be. Therefore let not your hearts faint; for I say not unto you as I said [p. [11]]

. Two later redactions were made on the leaves containing the 24 February 1834 revelation. At the top of page seven is inscribed “Sec. 103” in pencil in an unidentified hand. Following the text of this revelation, Orson Hyde inscribed in ink, “Copied by O Hyde 18 augt. 1834.” This notation indicates when Hyde copied this revelation into Revelation Book 2. Beginning in the mid-twentieth century, this record was associated with items that were received by the Church Historian’s Office from descendants of James Henry Rollins. It is unclear, however, if this notebook follows that same chain of custody.
