A Book of Commandments - Chapter 39

A Revelation to Joseph and Sidney, given in Canandaigua, New- York, December, 1830.

39:1 Behold I say unto you, that it is not expedient in me that ye should translate any more until ye shall go to the Ohio; and this because of the enemy and for your sakes.

39:2 And again, I say unto you, that ye shall not go until ye have preached my gospel in those parts, and have strengthened up the church withersoever it is found, and more especially in Colesville;

39:3 For behold they pray unto me in much faith.

39:4 And again a commandment I give unto the church, that it is expedient in me that they should assemble together at the Ohio, against the time that my servant Oliver shall return unto them.

39:5 Behold here is wisdom, and let every man choose for himself until I come; even so: Amen
