67 And men are instructed sufficiently, that they know good from evil.

68 And the law is given unto men.

69 And by the law, no flesh is justified, or, by the law, men are cut off.

70 Yea, by the temporal law, they were cut off; and also by the spiritual law they perish from that which is good, and become miserable for ever.

71 Wherefore, redemption cometh in and through the holy Messiah: for he is full of grace and truth.

72 Behold, he offereth himself a sacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law, unto all those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit; and unto none else can the ends of the law be answered.

73 Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the holy Messiah,

74 Who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit,

75 That he may bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise.

76 Wherefore, he is the first fruits unto God, inasmuch as he shall make intercession for all the children of men;

77 And they that believe in him, shall be saved.
