2d For, behold, I am endless, and the punishment which is given from my hand is endless punishment, for Endless is my name; wherefore--

2e Eternal punishment is God's punishment. Endless punishment is God's punishment.

2f Wherefore, I command you to repent, and keep the commandments which you have received by the hand of my servant Joseph Smith, Jr., in my name;

2g and it is by my almighty power that you have received them; therefore I command you to repent--repent, lest I smite you by the rod of my mouth, and by my wrath, and by my anger, and your sufferings be sore--how sore you know not! how exquisite you know not! yea, how hard to bear you know not!

2h For, behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer, if they would repent; but if they would not repent, they must suffer even as I;

2i which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit, and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink;

2j nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men;

2k wherefore, I command you again to repent, lest I humble you by my almighty power, and that you confess your sins, lest you suffer these punishments of which I have spoken, of which in the smallest, yea, even in the least degree, you have tasted at the time I withdrew my Spirit.

2l And I command you that you preach naught but repentance, and show not these things unto the world until it is wisdom in me;

2m for they cannot bear meat now, but milk they must receive; wherefore, they must not know these things, lest they perish.

2n Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit and you shall have peace in me.
