Doctrine and Covenants, 1844

There were among you adulterers and adulteresses; some of whom have turned away from you, and others remain with you: that hereafter shall be revealed. Let such beware and repent speedily, lest judgments shall come upon [t]hem as a snare, and their folly shall be made manifest, and their works shall follow them in the eyes of the people.

Verily I say, that they shall not have part in the first resurrection.
6 And now behold, I the Lord saith unto you, that ye are not justified because these things are among you, nevertheless he that endureth in faith and doth my will, the same shall overcome, and shall receive an inherit [p. 204]
