Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Independence, Missouri, April 30, 1832. This revelation was received as the Prophet sat in council with his brethren.
1 Verily, thus saith the Lord, in addition to the of the church concerning women and children, those who belong to the church, who have their husbands or fathers:
2 have on their husbands for their maintenance, until their are taken; and if they are not found transgressors they shall have fellowship in the church.
3 And if they are not faithful they shall not have fellowship in the church; yet they may remain upon their inheritances according to the laws of the land.
4 All have claim upon their for their until they are of age.
5 And after that, they have upon the church, or in other words upon the Lord’s , if their parents have not wherewith to give them inheritances.
6 And the storehouse shall be kept by the consecrations of the church; and and orphans shall be provided for, as also the . Amen.
