101 Hearken diligently unto me, and remember the words which I have spoken; and come unto the Holy One of Israel,
102 And feast upon that which perisheth not, neither can be corrupted, and let your soul delight in fatness.
103 Behold, my beloved brethren, remember the words of your God; pray unto him continually by day, and give thanks unto his holy name by night.
104 Let your hearts rejoice, and behold how great the covenants of the Lord, and how great his condescensions unto the children of men;
105 And because of his greatness, and his grace and mercy, he has promised unto us that our seed shall not utterly be destroyed, according to the flesh, but that he would preserve them; and in future generations, they shall become a righteous branch unto the house of Israel.
106 And now, my brethren, I would speak unto you more; but on the morrow I will declare unto you the remainder of my words. Amen.

10 Wherefore, because of their iniquities, destructions, famines, pestilence and bloodsheds, shall come upon them;
11 And they who shall not be destroyed, shall be scattered among all nations.
12 But behold, thus saith the Lord God: When the day cometh that they shall believe in me, that I am Christ, then have I covenanted with their fathers, that they shall be restored in the flesh, upon the earth, unto the lands of their inheritance.
13 And it shall come to pass that they shall be gathered in from their long dispersion from the isles of the sea, and from the four parts of the earth;
