1. Behold I say unto you, my servants and , open ye your ears and hearken to the voice of the Lord your God whose word is quick and powerful, sharper than a two edg ed sword, to the dividing asunder of the joints and marro soul and spirit; and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. For verily, verily I say unto you, that ye are called to lift up your voices as with the sound of a trump, to declare my gospel unto a crooked and perverse
generation: for behold the field is white already to harvest; and it is the eleventh hour, and for the last time that I shall call laborers into my vineyard. And my vineyard has become cor rupted every whit; and there is none which doeth good save it be a few; and they err in many instances, because of priestcrafts, all having corrupt minds.
2. And verily, verily I say unto you, that this have I estab lished and called forth out of the wilderness: and even so will I mine elect from the four winds quarters of the earth, even as many as will believe in me, and hearken unto my voice; yea, verily, verily I say unto you, that the field is white already to harvest; wherefore thrust in your sickles, and rea[p] with all your might, mind and strength. Open your mou[ths] and they shall be filled. And
you shall become even as Nephi of old, who Journied from Jerusalem in the wilder ness: yea, open your mouths and spare not, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with you: yea, open your mouths and they shall be filled saying, Repent, repent and prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight: for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand: yea, repent and be every one of you, for the a remission of your sins; yea, be baptized even by
water, and then cometh the baptism of fire and the Holy Ghost.
3 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, this is my gos pel, and remember that they shall have faith in me, [p. 76]
