Revelation, September 1830–F [D&C 31]

Those that revile8

See 1 Peter 2:23.  


govern thy house in meekness & be steadfast Behold I say unto you that thou shalt be a Physician unto the Church but not unto the World for they will not receive thee9

Two accounts in Marsh’s brief autobiography indicate that during the early years of his church membership he was called upon to act in a medical capacity. While en route from Ohio to Missouri, he was summoned to care for a “br. Blackslee” suffering from cholera but was unable to reach him in time to treat him. Another time he cared for Joseph Knight, who was “sick with the bloody flux,” or dysentery. (“T B Marsh,” [1]–[2], Historian’s Office, Histories of the Twelve, ca. 1858–1880, CHL.)  


go thy way whithersoever I will & it shall be given thee by the Comforter what thou shalt do & whither thou shalt go pray always lest ye enter into temptation & loose thy reward be faithful unto the end & Lo! I am with you these words are not of man neither of men but of me even Jesus Christ your Redeemer by the will of the father even so amen [p. 44]
