of thee & thou shalt no more worship the works of thy hands & I will pluck up thy Groves out of the midst of thee so will I destroy thy cities & it shall come to pass that all lyings & deceivings & envyings & strife & priestcraft & whoredoms shall be done away for it shall come to pass saith the Father that at that day whosoever will not repent & come unto my beloved Son them will I cut off from among my People O House of Israel & I will execute vengeance & fury upon them even as upon the Heathen such as they have not heard
Third Nephi, Chapter 10 [3 Nephi 21:22–23:13]
Chapter X But if they will repent & hearken unto my words & harden not their hearts I will establish my church among them & they shall come in unto the covenant & be numbred among this the remnant of Jacob unto whom I have given this land for their Inheritance & they shall assist my People the remnant of Jacob & also as many of the house of Jacob Israel as shall come, that they may build a City which shall be called the New Jerusalem & then shall they assist my People that they may be gathered in which are scattered upon all the face of the land in unto the New Jerusalem & then shall the powers of Heaven come down among them & I also will be in the midst and then shall the work of the Father commence at that day even when this Gospel shall be preached among the remnant of this People verily I say unto you at that day shall the work of the Father commence among all the dispersed of my People yea even the tribes which have been lost which the Father hath lead away out of Jerusalem yea the work shall commence among all the dispersed of my People with the Father to prepare the way whereby they may come unto me that they may call on the Father in my name yea & then shall the work commence with the Father among all Nations in preparing the way whereby his People may be gathered home to the land of their inheritance & they shall go out from all Nations & they shall not go out in haste nor go by flight for I will go before them saith the Father & I will be their rearward & then shall that which is written come to pass. Sing O barren thou that dodst not bear, break forth into singing & cry aloud thou that didst not travel with child for more are the Children of the dsolate than the Children of the Married wife saith the Lord enlarge the place place of thy tent & let them streach forth the curtain of thy habitations spare not lengthen thy Cords & strengthen thy stakes for thou shalt break forth on the right hand & on the left & thy seed shall Inherit the Gentiles & make the desolate Cities to be Inhabited fear not for thou shalt not be ashamed neither be thou confounded for thou shalt not be put to shame for thou shalt forget the shame of thy Youth & shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more for thy maker thy Husband [p. 400]
