A Book of Commandments - Chapter 50

A Revelation to Joseph and John, given in Kirtland, Ohio, March, 1831.

50:1 Behold it is expedient in me that my servant John should write and keep a regular history, and assist you, my servant Joseph, in transcribing all things which shall be given you.

50:2 Again, verily I say unto you, that he can also lift up his voice in meetings, whenever it shall be expedient.

50:3 And again, I say unto you, that it shall be appointed unto him to keep the church record and history continually, for Oliver I have appointed to another office:

50:4 Wherefore it shall be given him, inasmuch as he is faithful, by the Comforter, to write these things; even so: Amen.
