ABSCHNITT 11

ABSCHNITT 11

Revelation given through Joseph Smith, Jr., the prophet, in response to the earnest prayers of Joseph Knight, Sr. On several occasions Mr. Knight brought provisions to Joseph and Oliver so they could continue their work of translation without interruption. This revelation was given in May 1829, at Harmony, Pennsylvania. Note the similarity between the opening affirmations and commandments of this revelation and those given to Oliver Cowdery (D. and C. 6), Hyrum Smith (D. and C. 10), and David Whitmer (D. and C. 12).

1a A great and marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
1b Siehe, ich bin Gott, und achte auf mein Wort, das schnell und machtvoll ist, schärfer als ein zweischneidiges Schwert, um sowohl Gelenke als auch Mark zu spalten;
1c Darum achtet auf mein Wort.

2a Behold, the field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God;
2b ja, wer auch immer seine Sichel einschlagen und ernten will, der wird von Gott berufen;
2c darum, wenn ihr von mir bittet, werdet ihr empfangen, wenn ihr anklopft, wird euch aufgetan.

3a Now, as you have asked, behold, I say unto you,

3b Keep my commandments, and seek to bring forth and establish the cause of Zion.

4a Behold, I speak unto you, and also to all those who have desires to bring forth and establish this work;
4b and no one can assist in this work, except he shall be humble and full of love, having faith, hope, and charity, being temperate in all things whatsoever shall be intrusted to his care.

5a Behold, I am the light and the life of the world, that speak these words;
5b therefore, give heed with your might, and then you are called. Amen.
