Revelation, 31 August 1831

This brief revelation is dated four days following JS’s return to Ohio after dedicating the site for Zion, the New Jerusalem, in Jackson County, Missouri. Appointing John Burk, David Elliott, and Erastus Babbitt to go to Zion, the revelation satisfied the 30 August 1831 promise to JS that he would recognize by revelation those who should go there.
John Whitmer penned this revelation at Kirtland, Ohio; the Church History Library acquired it in 1994.
