in Zion, and shall do a work that none other man understandeth to do, in building the houses of the Lord. It shall be a gift unto him: he shall be enlightened by visions and dreams, and his soul shall be satisfied with the abundance with which the Lord his God shall bless him: and his seed after him shall be blessed from generation to generation. And his name shall be had in remembrance and be known among all nations; and it shall be said of him among governors, rulers and kings: This man reared the temple of God in Zion. And he shall be reverenced because of his great sagacity. His life shall be prolonged until he is very old. He shall be accounted among the wise counsellors of Israel, and he shall hear the voice of the Lord his God, and receive counsel by the ministering of angels; and shall be very terrible unto his enemies, and his soul shall be satisfied in seeing the wrath of God poured out upon them to the uttermost. He shall have communion with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and with the spirits of just men made perfect, and shall be caught up, whether in the body or out of the body, I cannot tell, God knoweth, he shall be caught up to the third heaven and behold unuterable things. And thus shall the hand of God be upon him all the days of his life, unto his joy and the satisfaction of his soul: and he shall have a crown of eternal life. And these are the blessings that I want should come upon my brother Corrill
