which I gave unto them.4

A December 1833 revelation stated that the Lord had allowed church members to be expelled from Jackson County because “there were jar[r]ings and contentions envyings and strifes and lustful and covetous desires” among them. It also said that because church members were “slow to hearken unto the voice of the Lord their God,” God was “slow to hearken unto their prayers to answer them in the day of their trouble.” (Revelation, 16–17 Dec. 1833 [D&C 101:6–7].)  


But verily I say unto you, that I have decreed a decree which my people shall realize inasmuch as they hearken from this hour unto the counsel which I the Lord their God shall give unto them. Behold, they shall, for I have decreed it, begin to prevail against mine enemies;5

See Isaiah 42:13.  


from this verry hour, & by hearkening to observe all the words which I the Lord their God shall speak unto them, they shall never cease to prevail untill the kingdoms of the world, are subdued under my feet,6

See Psalm 47:3; Revelation, 1 Aug. 1831 [D&C 58:22]; and Vision, 16 Feb. 1832 [D&C 76:61, 106].

. 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.
