1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you whom I love, and whom I a I also chasten that their sins may be b, for with the c I prepare a way for their d in all things out of e, and I have loved you—
2 Wherefore, ye must needs be chastened and stand rebuked before my face;
3 For ye have sinned against me a very grievous sin, in that ye have not considered the great commandment in all things, that I have given unto you concerning the building of mine a;
4 For the preparation wherewith I design to prepare mine apostles to a my vineyard for the last time, that I may bring to pass my b, that I may c my Spirit upon all flesh—
5 But behold, verily I say unto you, that there are many who have been ordained among you, whom I have called but few of them are a.
6 They who are not chosen have sinned a very grievous sin, in that they are a in b at noon-day.
7 And for this cause I gave unto you a commandment that you should call your a, that your b and your c might come up into the ears of the Lord of d, which is by interpretation, the e of the first day, the beginning and the end.
8 Yea, verily I say unto you, I gave unto you a commandment that you should a a house, in the which house I design to b those whom I have c with power from on high;
9 For this is the a of the Father unto you; therefore I command you to tarry, even as mine apostles at Jerusalem.
10 Nevertheless, my servants sinned a very grievous sin; and a arose in the b of the prophets; which was very grievous unto me, saith your Lord; therefore I sent them forth to be chastened.
11 Verily I say unto you, it is my will that you should build a house. a you keep my commandments you shall have power to build it.
12 If you a not my commandments, the b of the Father shall not continue with you, therefore you shall c in darkness.
13 Now here is wisdom, and the a of the Lord—let the house be built, not after the manner of the world, for I give not unto you that ye shall live after the manner of the world;
14 Therefore, let it be built after the a which I shall show unto three of you, whom ye shall appoint and ordain unto this power.
15 And the size thereof shall be fifty and five feet in width, and let it be sixty-five feet in length, in the inner court thereof.
16 And let the lower part of the inner court be dedicated unto me for your sacrament offering, and for your preaching, and your fasting, and your praying, and the a up of your most holy desires unto me, saith your Lord.
17 And let the higher part of the inner court be dedicated unto me for the a of mine apostles, saith Son b; or, in other words, Alphus; or, in other words, Omegus; even Jesus Christ your c. Amen.
