Chapter 17:27 And unlike the days of Moses, when He came down upon the top of mount Sinai, whose people were not worthy to touch the mountain where the Lord stood by His servant Moses, His son Jesus Christ, will find at last, a people who observe His commandments, strictly clean from the filthiness of the world of Satan and pure of heart; having all thing in common, just as in the days of Enoch, when they lived in a "united order"--Amen.
p. 133 The 12 Apostles of Moses and the Promised Land
13 And it came to pass, when the congregation proceeded to gather stones to stone Joshua and Caleb; the Glory of the Lord appeared upon the congregation of the children of Israel, and the LORD said to Moses: How long will this people provoke Me? And how long will they not believe Me, in spite of all the signs I have made among them?
14 Therefore, the Lord said: At no time did I command you that the twelve men who had inspected the promised land should report the bad things of this land to the people of Israel, but that they should on report on the good things that are there.
4 The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.
5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
9 Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.
10 Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
2 Nephi 5 11-13
And the Lord was with us; and we did prosper exceedingly; for we did sow seed, and we did reap again in abundance. And we began to raise flocks, and herds, and animals of every kind.
And I, Nephi, had also brought the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass; and also the ball, or compass, which was prepared for my father by the hand of the Lord, according to that which is written.
And it came to pass that we began to prosper exceedingly, and to multiply in the land.
