A Commandment to Ezra [Thayer] & Northrop [Sweet] th[e]ir call to the  ministery &c given at Fayette Seneca County State of New York
Saying I say unto you Ezra & Northrop open ye your ears  & hearken to the voice of the Lord your God whose word is  quick & powerfull sharper than a twoedged sword to the  dividing asunder of the Joints & marrow Soul & spirit & is  a decerner of the thoughts & intents of the heart for Verily Verily  I say unto you that ye are called to lift up voices as with the  sound of a Trump to declare my Gospel unto a Crooked &  a perverse generation for Behold the field is white already  to harvest & it is the Elvenenth hour & for the last time that I  shall call labouerers into my vineyard & my vineyard has become  corrupted evry whit & there is none that doeth good save it is a few  only <& they do err in many instances because of Priest crafts> all having corrupt minds & Verily Verily I say unto you that  this Church have I established & called forth out of the Wilderness  & even so will I gether mine elect elect from the four quarters  of the Earth even as many as will believe in <on> my name &  hearken unto my voice yea Verily Verily I say unto you that  the field is white already to harvest Wherefore thrust in thy  sickles & reap with all thy mights mind & strength open thy  mouth & it shall be filled & thou shalt become even as  Nephi of old who Journ[ey]ed from Jerusalem in the wilderness  yea open thy mouth & spare not & thou shalt be laden with  Sheaves upon thy Back for lo I am with thee you yea [p. 44]
