9 verse, For behold, all ye that do eniquity, stay yourselves and wonder; for ye shall cry out, and cry; yea, yea shall be drunken, but not with wine; ye shall stagger, but not with strong drink;
10 For behold, the Lord hath poured out upon you, the spirit of deep sleep. For behold, ye hath <​have​> closed your eyes, and ye have rejected the prophets, and your rulers; and the seers hath he covered because of your eniquitys.
11 and it shall come to pass, that the Lord god shall bring forth unto you, the words of a book; and they shall be the words of them which have slumbered. And behold, the book shall be sealed; and in the book shall be a revelation from God, from the begining of the world, to the ending thereof.

For the book shall be sealed by the power of God, and the revelation which was sealed, shall be kept in the book, until the own due time of the Lord, that they may come forth; for, behold, they reveal all things from the foundation of the world, unto the end thereof. And the day cometh, that the words of the book which are <​were​> <​were​> sealed, shall be read upon the house tops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; and all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever hath <​have​> been among the children of men, and which ever will be, even unto the end of the earth. Wherefore, at that day, when the book shall [p. 103]
