D&C 111:1 I, the Lord your God, am not displeased with your coming this journey, notwithstanding your follies.



D&C 111:2 I have much treasure in this city for you, for the benefit of Zion, and many people in this city, whom I will gather out in due time for the benefit of Zion, through your instrumentality.



D&C 111:3 Therefore, it is expedient that you should form acquaintance with men in this city, as you shall be led, and as it shall be given you.



D&C 111:4 And it shall come to pass in due time that I will give this city into your hands, that you shall have power over it, insomuch that they shall not discover your secret parts; and its wealth pertaining to gold and sliver shall be yours.



D&C 111:5 Concern not yourselves about your debts, for I will give you power to pay them.



D&C 111:6 Concern not yourselves about Zion, for I will deal mercifully with her.



D&C 111:7 Tarry in this place, and in the regions round about;



D&C 111:8 And the place where it is my will that you should tarry, for the main, shall be signalized unto you by the peace and power of my Spirit, that shall flow unto you.



D&C 111:9 This place you may obtain by hire. And inquire diligently concerning the more ancient inhabitants and founders of this city;



D&C 111:10 For there are more treasures than one for you in this city.



D&C 111:11 Therefore, be ye as wise as serpents and yet with out sin; and I will order all things for your good, as fast as ye are able to receive them. Amen.

D&C 112:0 Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, to Thomas B. Marsh, at Kirtland, Ohio, July 23, 1837.o The word of the Lord unto Thomas B. Marsh, concerning the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb. The Prophet records that this revelation was received on the day on which the Gospel was first preached in England. Thomas B. Marsh was at this time president of the quorum of the Twelve Apostles. --The Twelve to send the gospel abroad among all nations--They are to act under the direction of the First Presidency--Others may be authorized by the Twelve for ministry among the nations--The keys of power in the Priesthood committed to the First Presidency and the Twelve--The present designated as the dispensation of the fulness of times.



D&C 112:1 Verily thus saith the Lord unto you my servant Thomas: I have heard thy prayers; and thine alms have come up as a memorial before me, in behalf of those, thy brethren, who were chosen to bear testimony of my name and to send it abroad among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, and ordained through the instrumentality of my servants.



D&C 112:2 Verily I say unto you, there have been some few things in thine heart and with thee with which I, the Lord, was not well pleased.



D&C 112:3 Nevertheless, inasmuch as thou hast abased thyself thou shalt be exalted; therefore, all thy sins are forgiven thee.



D&C 112:4 Let thy heart be of good cheer before my face; and thou shalt bear record of my name, not only unto the Gentiles, but also unto the Jews; and thou shalt send forth my word unto the ends of the earth.



D&C 112:5 Contend thou, therefore, morning by morning; and day after day let thy warning voice go forth; and when the night cometh let not the inhabitants of the earth slumber, because of thy speech.



D&C 112:6 Let thy habitation be known in Zion, and remove not thy house; for I, the Lord, have a great work for thee to do, in publishing my name among the children of men.



D&C 112:7 Therefore, gird up thy loins for the work. Let thy feet be shod also, for thou art chosen, and thy path lieth among the mountains, and among many nations.



D&C 112:8 And by thy word many high ones shall be brought low, and by thy word many low ones shall be exalted.



D&C 112:9 Thy voice shall be a rebuke unto the transgressor; and at thy rebuke let the tongue of the slanderer cease its perverseness.



D&C 112:10 Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.



D&C 112:11 I know thy heart, and have heard thy prayers concerning thy brethren. Be not partial towards them in love above many others, but thy love be for them as for thy self; and let thy love abound unto all men, and unto all who love my name.



D&C 112:12 And pray for thy brethren of the Twelve. Admonish them sharply for my name's sake, and let them be admonished for all their sins, and be ye faithful before me unto my name.



D&C 112:13 And after their temptations, and much tribulation, behold, I, the Lord, will feel after them, and if they harden not their hearts, and stiffen not their necks against me, they shall be converted, and I will heal them.



D&C 112:14 Now, I say unto you, and what I say unto you, I say unto all the Twelve: Arise and gird up your loins, take up your cross, follow me, and feed my sheep.



D&C 112:15 Exalt not yourselves; rebel not against my servant Joseph; for verily I say unto you, I am with him, and my hand shall be over him; and the keys which I have given unto him, and also to youward, shall not be taken from him till I come.



D&C 112:16 Verily I say unto you, my servant Thomas, thou art the man whom I have chosen to hold the keys of my kingdom, as pertaining to the Twelve, abroad among all nations --



D&C 112:17 That thou mayest be my servant to unlock the door of the kingdom in all places where my servant Joseph, and my servant Sidney, and my servant Hyrum, cannot come;



D&C 112:18 For on them have I laid the burden of all the churches for a little season.



D&C 112:19 Wherefore, whithersoever they shall send you, go ye, and I will be with you; and in whatsoever place ye shall proclaim my name an effectual door shall be opened unto you, that they may receive my word.



D&C 112:20 Whosoever receiveth my word receiveth me, and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth those, the First Presidency, whom I have sent, whom I have made counselors for my name's sake unto you.



D&C 112:21 And again, I say unto you, that whosoever ye shall send in my name, by the voice of your brethren, the Twelve, duly recommended and authorized by you, shall have power to open the door of my kingdom unto any nation whithersoever ye shall send them --



D&C 112:22 Inasmuch as they shall humble themselves before me, and abide in my word, and hearken to the voice of my Spirit.



D&C 112:23 Verily, verily, I say unto you, darkness covereth the earth, and gross darkness the minds of the people, and all flesh has come corrupt before my face.



D&C 112:24 Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth, a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation; and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of the earth, saith the Lord.



D&C 112:25 And upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord;



D&C 112:26 First among those among you, saith the Lord, who have professed to know my name and have not known me, and have blasphemed against me in the midst of my house, saith the Lord.



D&C 112:27 Therefore, see to it that ye trouble not yourselves concerning the affairs of my church in this place, saith the Lord.



D&C 112:28 But purify your hearts before me; and then go ye into all the world, and preach my gospel unto every creature who has not received it;



D&C 112:29 And he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and he that believeth not, and is not baptized, shall be damned.



D&C 112:30 For unto you, the Twelve, and those, the First Presidency, who are appointed with you to be your counselors and your leaders, is the power of this last priesthood given, for the last days and for the last time, in the which is the dispensation of the fulness of times.



D&C 112:31 Which power you hold, in connection with all those who have received a dispensation at any time from the beginning of the creation;



D&C 112:32 For verily I say unto you, the keys of the dispensation, which ye have received, have come down from the fathers, and last of all, being sent down from heaven unto you.



D&C 112:33 Verily I say unto you, behold how great is your calling. Cleanse your hearts and your garments, lest the blood of this generation be required at your hands.



D&C 112:34 Be faithful until I come, for I come quickly; and my reward is with me to recompense every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega. Amen.

D&C 113:0 Answers to certain questions on Scripture, given by Joseph Smith the Prophet, March 1938.



D&C 113:1 Who is the Stem of Jesse spoken of in the 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th, and 5th verses of the 11th chapter of Isaiah?



D&C 113:2 Verily thus saith the Lord: It is Christ.



D&C 113:3 What is the rod spoken of in the first verse of the 11th chapter of Isaiah, that should come of the Stem of Jesse?



D&C 113:4 Behold, thus saith the Lord: It is a servant in the hands of Christ, who is partly a descendant of Jesse as well as of Ephraim, or of the house of Joseph, on home there is laid much power.



D&C 113:5 What is the root of Jesse spoken of in the 10th verse of the 11th chapter?



D&C 113:6 Behold, thus saith the Lord, it is a descendant of Jesse, as well as of Joseph, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood, and the keys of the kingdom, for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days.



D&C 113:7 Questions by Elias Higbee: What is meant by the command in Isaiah, 52d chapter, 1st verse, which saith: Put on thy strength, O Zion -- and what people had Isaiah reference to?



D&C 113:8 He had reference to those whom God should call in the last days, who should hold the power of priesthood to bring again Zion, and the redemption of Israel; and to put on her strength is to put on the authority of the priesthood, which she, Zion, has a right to by lineage; also to return to that power which she had lost.



D&C 113:9 What are we to understand by Zion loosing herself from the bands of her neck; 2d verse?



D&C 113:10 We are to understand that the scattered remnants are exhorted to return to the Lord from whence they have fallen; which if they do, the promise of the Lord is that he will speak to them, or give them revelation. See the 6th, 7th, and 8th verses. The bands of her neck are the curses of God upon her, or the remnants of Israel in their scattered condition among the Gentiles.

D&C 115:2 And also unto you, my servant Edward Partridge, and his counselors;



D&C 115:3 And also unto my faithful servants who are of the high council of my church in Zion, for thus it shall be called, and unto all the elders and people of my Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, scattered abroad in all the world;



D&C 115:4 For thus shall my church be called in the last days, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.



D&C 115:5 Verily I say unto you all: Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations;



D&C 115:6 And that the gathering together upon the land of Zion, and upon her stakes, may be for a defense, and for a refuge from the storm, and from wrath when it shall be poured out without mixture upon the whole earth.



D&C 115:7 Let the city, Far West, be a holy and consecrated land unto me; and it shall be called most holy, for the ground upon which thou standest is holy.



D&C 115:8 Therefore, I command you to build a house unto me, for the gathering together of my saints, that they may worship me.



D&C 115:9 And let there be a beginning of this work, and a foundation, and a preparatory work, this following summer;



D&C 115:10 And let the beginning be made on the fourth day of July next; and from that time forth let my people labor diligently to build a house unto my name;



D&C 115:11 And in one year from this day let them re-commence laying the foundation of my house.



D&C 115:12 Thus let them from that time forth labor diligently until it shall be finished, from the corner stone thereof unto the top thereof, until there shall not anything remain that is not finished.



D&C 115:13 Verily I say unto you, let not my servant Joseph, neither my servant Sidney, neither my servant Hyrum, get in debt any more for the building of a house unto my name;



D&C 115:14 But let a house be built unto my name according to the pattern which I will show them.



D&C 115:15 And if my people build it not according to the pattern which I shall show unto their presidency, I will not accept it at their hands.



D&C 115:16 But if my people do build it according to the pattern which I shall show unto their presidency, even my servant Joseph and his counselors, then I will accept it at the hands of my people.



D&C 115:17 And again, verily I say unto you, it is my will that the city of Far West should be built up speedily by the gathering of my saints;



D&C 115:18 And also that other places should be appointed for stakes in the regions round about, as they shall be manifested unto my servant Joseph, from time to time.



D&C 115:19 For behold, I will be with him, and I will sanctify him before the people; for unto him have I given the keys of this kingdom and ministry. Even so. Amen.

D&C 117:1 Verily thus saith the Lord unto my servant William Marks, and also unto my servant Newel K. Whitney, let them settle up their business speedily and journey from the land of Kirtland, before I, the Lord, send again the snows upon the earth.



D&C 117:2 Let them awake, and arise, and come forth, and not tarry, for I, the Lord, command it.



D&C 117:3 Therefore, if they tarry it shall not be well with them.



D&C 117:4 Let them repent of all their sins, and of all their covetous desires, before me, saith the Lord; for what is property unto me? saith the Lord.



D&C 117:5 Let the properties of Kirtland be turned out for debts, saith the Lord. Let them go, saith the Lord, and whatsoever remaineth, let it remain in your hands, saith the Lord.



D&C 117:6 For have I not the fowls of heaven, and also the fish of the sea, and the beasts of the mountains? Have I not made the earth? Do I not hold the destinies of all the armies of the nations of the earth?



D&C 117:7 Therefore, will I not make solitary places to bud and to blossom, and to bring forth in abundance? saith the Lord.



D&C 117:8 Is there not room enough on the mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and on the plains of Olaha Shinehah, or the land where Adam dwelt, that you should covet that which is but the drop, and neglect the more weighty matters?



D&C 117:9 Therefore, come up hither unto the land of my people, even Zion.



D&C 117:10 Let my servant William Marks be faithful over a few things, and he shall be a ruler over many. Let him preside in the midst of my people in the city of Far West, and let him be blessed with the blessings of my people.



D&C 117:11 Let my servant Newel K. Whitney be ashamed of the Nicolaitane band and of all their secret abominations, and of all his littleness of soul before me, saith the Lord, and come up to the land of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and be a bishop unto my people, saith the Lord, not in the name but in deed, saith the Lord.



D&C 117:12 And again, I say unto you, I remember my servant Oliver Granger; behold, verily I say unto him that his name shall be had in sacred remembrance from generation to generation, forever and ever, saith the Lord.



D&C 117:13 Therefore, let him contend earnestly for the redemption of the First Presidency of my Church, saith the Lord; and when he falls he shall rise again, for his sacrifice shall be more sacred unto me than his increase, saith the Lord.



D&C 117:14 Therefore, let him come up hither speedily, unto the land of Zion; and in the due time he shall be made a merchant unto my name, saith the Lord, for the benefit of my people.



D&C 117:15 Therefore let no man despise my servant Oliver Granger, but let the blessings of my people be on him forever and ever.



D&C 117:16 And again, verily I say unto you, let all my servants in the land of Kirtland remember the Lord their God, and mine house also, to keep and preserve it holy, and to overthrow the moneychangers in mine own due time, saith the Lord. Even so. Amen.

D&C 119:2 For the building of mine house, and for the laying of the foundation of Zion and for the priesthood, and for the debts of the Presidency of my Church.



D&C 119:3 And this shall be the beginning of the tithing of my people.



D&C 119:4 And after that, those who have thus been tithed shall pay one-tenth of all their interest annually; and this shall be a standing law unto them forever, for my holy priesthood, saith the Lord.



D&C 119:5 Verily I say unto you, it shall come to pass that all those who gather unto the land of Zion shall be tithed of their surplus properties, and shall observe this law, or they shall not be found worthy to abide among you.



D&C 119:6 And I say unto you, if my people observe not this law, to keep it holy, and by this law sanctify the land of Zion unto me, that my statues and my judgments may be kept thereon, that it may be most holy, behold, verily I say unto you, it shall not be a land of Zion unto you.



D&C 119:7 And this shall be an ensample unto all the stakes of Zion. Even so. Amen.
