Passage: Jacob 3:133 - Jacob 3:153
133 And the branches of the natural tree will I graft in again, into the natural tree; and the branches of the natural tree will I graft into the natural branches of the tree;
134 And thus will I bring them together again, that they shall bring forth the natural fruit; and they shall be one.
135 And the bad shall be cast away; yea, even out of all the land of my vineyard; for behold, only this once will I prune my vineyard.
136 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard sent his servant; and the servant went and did as the Lord had commanded him, and brought other servants; and they were few.
137 And the Lord of the vineyard said unto them, Go to and labor in the vineyard, with your mights.
138 For behold, this is the last time that I shall nourish my vineyard: for the end is nigh at hand, and the season speedily cometh;
139 And if ye labor with your mights with me, ye shall have joy in the fruit which I shall lay up unto myself, against the time which will soon come.
140 And it came to pass that the servants did go, and labor with their mights; and the Lord of the vineyard labored also with them; and they did obey the commandments of the Lord of the vineyard, in all things.
141 And there began to be the natural fruit again in the vineyard; and the natural branches began to grow and thrive exceedingly;
142 And the wild branches began to be plucked off, and to be cast away; and they did keep the root and the top thereof equal, according to the strength thereof.
143 And thus they labored, with all diligence, according to the commandments of the Lord of the vineyard, even until the bad had been cast away out of the vineyard, and the Lord had preserved unto himself, that the trees had become again the natural fruit;
144 And they became like unto one body; and the fruit were equal; and the Lord of the vineyard had preserved unto himself the natural fruit, which was most precious unto him from the beginning.
145 And it came to pass that when the Lord of the vineyard saw that his fruit was good, and that his vineyard was no more corrupt, he called up his servants and said unto them, Behold, for this last time have we nourished my vineyard; and thou beholdest that I have done according to my will;
146 And I have preserved the natural fruit, that it is good, even like as it was in the beginning; and blessed art thou.
147 For because ye have been diligent in laboring with me in my vineyard, and have kept my commandments, and have brought unto me again the natural fruit, that my vineyard is no more corrupted, and the bad is cast away, behold, ye shall have joy with me, because of the fruit of my vineyard.
148 For behold, for a long time will I lay up of the fruit of my vineyard unto mine own self, against the season, which speedily cometh;
149 And for the last time have I nourished my vineyard, and pruned it, and dug about it, and dunged it;
150 Wherefore I will lay up unto mine own self of the fruit for a long time, according to that which I have spoken.
151 And when the time cometh that evil fruit shall again come into my vineyard, then will I cause the good and the bad to be gathered:
152 And the good will I preserve unto myself; and the bad will I cast away into its own place.
153 And then cometh the season and the end; and my vineyard will I cause to be burned with fire.
