Revelation given through Joseph Smith, at Manchester, New York, likely in the summer of 1829. In his history, the Prophet introduces it as “a commandment of God and not of man, to Martin Harris, given by him who is Eternal.”
1 I am a, b the Lord; yea, even I am he, the beginning and the end, the Redeemer of the c.
2 I, having accomplished and a the will of him whose I am, even the Father, concerning me—having done this that I might b all things unto myself—
3 Retaining all a, even to the b of Satan and his works at the c of the world, and the last great day of judgment, which I shall pass upon the inhabitants thereof, d every man according to his e and the deeds which he hath done.
4 And surely every man must a or b, for I, God, am c.
5 Wherefore, I a not the judgments which I shall pass, but woes shall go forth, weeping, b and gnashing of teeth, yea, to those who are found on my c hand.
6 Nevertheless, it is a written that there shall be no end to this torment, but it is written b c.
7 Again, it is written a; wherefore it is more express than other scriptures, that it might work upon the hearts of the children of men, altogether for my name’s glory.
8 Wherefore, I will explain unto you this a, for it is meet unto you to know even as mine apostles.
9 I speak unto you that are chosen in this thing, even as one, that you may enter into my a.
10 For, behold, the a of godliness, how great is it! For, behold, I am b, and the punishment which is given from my hand is endless c, for d is my name. Wherefore—
11 a punishment is God’s punishment.
12 Endless punishment is God’s punishment.
13 Wherefore, I command you to repent, and keep the a which you have received by the hand of my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., in my name;
14 And it is by my almighty power that you have received them;
15 Therefore I command you to repent—repent, lest I a you by the rod of my mouth, and by my wrath, and by my anger, and your b be sore—how sore you know not, how exquisite you know not, yea, how hard to bear you know not.
16 For behold, I, God, have a these things for all, that they b not suffer if they would c;
17 But if they would not repent they must a even as I;
18 Which a caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might b drink the bitter cup, and shrink—
19 Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and a my preparations unto the children of men.
20 Wherefore, I command you again to repent, lest I a you with my almighty power; and that you b your sins, lest you suffer these c of which I have spoken, of which in the smallest, yea, even in the least degree you have d at the time I withdrew my Spirit.
21 And I command you that you a naught but repentance, and show b these things unto the world until it is wisdom in me.
22 For they cannot a meat now, but b they must receive; wherefore, they must not know these things, lest they perish.
23 a of me, and listen to my words; b in the c of my Spirit, and you shall have d in me.
24 I am Jesus Christ; I a by the b of the Father, and I do his will.
25 And again, I command thee that thou shalt not a thy b c; nor seek thy neighbor’s life.
26 And again, I command thee that thou shalt not a thine own property, but impart it freely to the printing of the Book of Mormon, which contains the b and the word of God—
27 Which is my word to the a, that soon it may go to the b, of whom the Lamanites are a c, that they may believe the gospel, and look not for a d to come who has already come.
28 And again, I command thee that thou shalt a b as well as in thy heart; yea, before the world as well as in secret, in public as well as in private.
29 And thou shalt a glad tidings, yea, b it upon the mountains, and upon every high place, and among every people that thou shalt be permitted to see.
30 And thou shalt do it with all humility, a in me, b not against revilers.
31 And of a thou shalt not talk, but thou shalt declare repentance and b on the Savior, and c of sins by d, and by e, yea, even the f.
32 Behold, this is a great and the last a which I shall give unto you concerning this matter; for this shall suffice for thy daily walk, even unto the end of thy life.
33 And misery thou shalt receive if thou wilt slight these a, yea, even the destruction of thyself and property.
34 a a portion of thy property, yea, even part of thy lands, and all save the support of thy b.
35 Pay the a thou hast b with the printer. Release thyself from c.
36 a thy house and home, except when thou shalt desire to see thy family;
37 And a freely to all; yea, preach, exhort, declare the b, even with a loud voice, with a sound of rejoicing, crying—Hosanna, hosanna, blessed be the name of the Lord God!
38 a always, and I will b my Spirit upon you, and great shall be your blessing—yea, even more than if you should obtain c of earth and corruptibleness to the extent thereof.
39 Behold, canst thou read this without a and lifting up thy heart for b?
40 Or canst thou run about longer as a a guide?
41 Or canst thou be a and meek, and conduct thyself wisely before me? Yea, b unto me thy Savior. Amen.
