Blessing for David Whitmer, 22 September 1835

in years. And shall enjoy an abundance of the precious things of the lasting mountains, and shall have part with his  brethren in all the good things of this earth, and shall never want a friend. He shall bring down his adversaries un der his feet, and shall walk upon their ashes when their names are blotted out. His name shall be a blessing among  all nations, and his testimony shall shine as fair as the sun, and as a diamond it shall remain untarnished. There  shall not be a spot upon his character while he lives, neither upon his seed after him unto the latest posterity:  he shall not be forsaken nor his seed found begging bread. Amen.
Oliver-Cowdery, Clerk and Recorder.
Given like the foregoing blessings, by vision, to Joseph Smith, jr. the Seer, September 22, 1835, and recorded Oct. 2, 1835. [p. 14]
