ye should honor me. I receive not honor from men. But I know you <​10​> that ye have not the love of God in you. <​10​> I am come in my fathers name, and ye receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye beleive who seek honor one of another and seek not the honor which cometh from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the father; there is Moses who accuseth you, in whom ye trust. For had ye beleived Moses, you would have beleived me; for he wrote of me; But if ye beleive not his writings, how shall ye beleive my words?

Editorial Note
At this stage in the New Translation, JS ceased dictating the entire text to his scribe . Instead, he dictated only replacement words or words to be added, and in his printed Bible he marked the locations for revisions and additions. The marking in the Bible was done sometimes in pencil but generally in ink with bold strokes. Most of the ink writing bled to some degree through the porous paper, and thus much of the ink that is visible now came from writing on the opposite side of the page. On the handwritten manuscripts, the scribes recorded the chapter and verse numbers along with the dictated words.
