Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet to his brother Hyrum Smith, at Harmony, Pennsylvania, May 1829. This revelation was received through the Urim and Thummim in answer to Joseph’s supplication and inquiry. Joseph Smith’s history suggests that this revelation was received after the restoration of the Aaronic Priesthood.
1 a great and marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
2 Behold, I am God; give a to my b, which is quick and c, d than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of both joints and marrow; therefore give e unto my word.
3 Behold, the field is a already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap let him thrust in his sickle with his b, and reap while the day lasts, that he may c up for his soul d salvation in the kingdom of God.
4 Yea, whosoever will thrust in his sickle and a, the same is b of God.
5 Therefore, if you will ask of me you shall receive; if you will a it shall be opened unto you.
6 Now, as you have asked, behold, I say unto you, keep my commandments, and seek to bring forth and establish the cause of a.
7 Seek not for a but for b; and, behold, the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto you, and then shall you be made c. Behold, he that hath eternal life is rich.
8 Verily, verily, I say unto you, even as you desire of me so it shall be done unto you; and, if you desire, you shall be the means of doing much good in this generation.
9 a nothing but b unto this generation. Keep my commandments, and assist to bring forth my c, d to my commandments, and you shall be blessed.
10 Behold, thou hast a a, or thou shalt have a gift if thou wilt desire of me in faith, with an b heart, believing in the power of Jesus Christ, or in my power which speaketh unto thee;
11 For, behold, it is I that speak; behold, I am the a which shineth in darkness, and by my b I give these words unto thee.
12 And now, verily, verily, I say unto thee, put your a in that b which c to do d—yea, to do e, to walk f, to g righteously; and this is my Spirit.
13 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall a your b, which shall fill your soul with c;
14 And then shall ye know, or by this shall you know, all things whatsoever you desire of me, which are pertaining unto things of a, in faith believing in me that you shall receive.
15 Behold, I command you that you need not suppose that you are a to b c you are called.
16 Wait a little longer, until you shall have my word, my a, my b, and my gospel, that you may know of a surety my doctrine.
17 And then, behold, according to your desires, yea, even according to your a shall it be done unto you.
18 Keep my commandments; hold your peace; appeal unto my Spirit;
19 Yea, a unto me with all your heart, that you may assist in bringing to light those things of which has been spoken—yea, the b of my work; be patient until you shall accomplish it.
20 Behold, this is your work, to a my commandments, yea, with all your might, b and strength.
21 Seek not to a my word, but first seek to b my c, and then shall your tongue be loosed; then, if you desire, you shall have my d and my word, yea, the power of God unto the e of men.
22 But now hold your a; study b which hath gone forth among the children of men, and also c my word which shall come forth among the children of men, or that which is d, yea, until you have obtained all which I shall e unto the children of men in this generation, and then shall all things be added thereto.
23 Behold thou art a, my son; b the kingdom of God, and all things shall be added according to that which is just.
24 a upon my b, which is my c;
25 Deny not the spirit of a, nor the spirit of b, for wo unto him that c these things;
26 Therefore, a up in your b until the time which is in my wisdom that you shall go forth.
27 Behold, I speak unto a who have good desires, and have thrust in their sickle to reap.
28 Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the a. I am the life and the b of the world.
29 I am the same who came unto mine own and mine own a;
30 But verily, verily, I say unto you, that as many as receive me, to them will I give a to become the b of God, even to them that c on my name. Amen.
