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.

78 And because of the intercession for all, all men come unto God;

79 Wherefore, they stand in the presence of him, to be judged of him, according to the truth and holiness which is in him.

80 Wherefore, the ends of the law which the Holy One hath given, unto the inflicting of the punishment which is affixed, which punishment that is affixed is in opposition to that of the happiness which is affixed, to answer the ends of the atonement;

81 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things.

82 If not so, my first born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass; neither wickedness; neither holiness nor misery; neither good nor bad.
