Revelation, 6 August 1833 [D&C 98]

and I the Lord will fight their battles and their childrens battles and their childrens children untill they have avenged themselves on all their enemes to the third and fourth generation; behold this is an ensample unto all people saith the Lord your God for justification before me. And again Verily I say unto you if after thine enemy has come upon you the first time he repents and come unto thee praying thy forgiveness thou shalt forgive him and shall hold it no more as a testimony against thine enemy and so on unto the second and the third time and as oft as thine enemy repent of the trespass wherewith he has trespassed against thee thou shalt forgive him unto seventy times seven and if he trespass against thee and repent not the first time nevertheless thou shalt forgive him and if he trespass against thee the second time and repent not nevertheless thou shalt forgive him and if he trespass against thee the third time and repent not thou shalt also forgive him, but if he trespass against him the fourth time thou shalt not forgive him but shall bring these testimonies before the Lord and they shall not be blotted out till he repent and reward thee four fould in all things wherewith he has trespassed against you and if he do this thou shalt forgive him with all thine heart and if he do not this I the Lord will avenge thee of thine enemy an hundred fold and upon his children and upon his childrens children of all them that hate me unto the third and fourth generation but if the children shall repent or the childrens children and turn unto the Lord their God with all their heart and with all their night mind and strength and restore four fold for all their trespasses wherewith they have trespassed or wherewith their fathers have trespassed or their fathers fathers then thine indignation shall be turned away and vengence shall no more come upon them saith the Lord your God and their trespasses shall never be brought any more as a testmony before the Lord against them Amen.
