A Book of Commandments - Chapter 42

A Revelation to Joseph, and Sidney, given in Fayette, New- York, January, 1831, explaining why James (C.,) obeyed not the revelation which was given unto him.

42:1 Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, that his heart was right before me, for he covenanted with me, that he would obey my word.

42:2 And he received the word with gladness, but straitway satan tempted him; and the fear of persecution, and the cares of the world, caused him to reject the word:

42:3 Wherefore he broke my covenant, and it remaineth in me to do with him as seemeth good. Amen.
