And <​September 1 Letter to the elders, from Joseph Smith​> when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, if ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there, and she constrained us. . . . . . . . and at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to God: at midnight and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm; for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas; and brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must we I do to be saved? And they said, beleive on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes, and was baptized, he and all his, straitway. And when they he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and <​Acts 16: 13, &c.​> rejoiced, beleiving in God with all his house.” Acts 16: 13,14,15,— 25 to 35.

And they said unto him, we have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy, Ghost. And he said unto them, unto what then were ye baptized. And they said unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance for saying unto the people, that they should beleive on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost come on them; <​Acts 19: 1,2 &c.​> and they spake with tongues, and prophecied.” Acts 19: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
<​Acts 22: 12 &c​> “And one Ananias, a devout man, according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. And he said, the God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldst know his will, and see that just one, and shouldst hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness, [HC 2:258] unto all men, of what thou hast seen and heard. And now why tarryest thou? Arise and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.” Acts 22:12, 13, 14, <​to​> 15, 16.
