Revelation, 14 November 1835

his sins are forgiven him because of his  desires to do the works of righteousness  therefore in as much as he will continue  to hearken unto my voice he shall be  blessed with wisdom and with a sound  mind even above his fellows, behold it  shall come to pass in his day that he  shall <see> great things shew forth themselves  unto my people, he shall see much of  my ancient records, and shall know of  hid[d]en things, and shall be endowed  with a knowledge of hid[d]en languages,  and if he desires and shall seek it at  my hand, he shall be privileged with  writing much of my word, as a scribe  unto me for the benefit of my people,  therefore this shall be his calling until  I shall order it otherwise in my wisdom  and it shall be said of him in a  time to come, behold Warren the Lords  Scribe, for the Lords Seer whom he hath  appointed in Israel; Therefore <if he will> keep my  commandments he shall be lifted up  at the last day, even so Amen [p. 36]
