1 It came to pass that Jesus
commanded his disciples that they should bring forth some bread and wine unto him.
2 And while they were gone for bread and wine, he commanded the multitude that they
should sit themselves down upon the earth.
3 And when the disciples had come with bread and wine, he took of the bread and brake
and blessed it; and he gave unto the disciples and commanded that they should eat.
4 And when they had eaten and were filled, he commanded that they should give unto the
5 And when the multitude had eaten and were filled, he said unto the disciples: Behold
there shall one be ordained among you, and to him will I give power that he shall break bread and
bless it and give it unto the people of my church, unto all those who shall believe and be baptized
in my name.
6 And this shall ye always observe to do, even as I have done, even as I have broken
bread and blessed it and given it unto you.
7 And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it
shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me
ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.
8 It came to pass that when he said these words, he commanded
his disciples that they should take of the wine of the cup and drink of it, and that they should
also give unto the multitude that they might drink of it.
9 It came to pass that they did so, and did drink of it and
were filled; and they gave unto the multitude, and they did drink, and they were filled.
And when the disciples had done this, Jesus said unto them: Blessed are ye for this
thing which ye have done, for this is fulfilling my commandments, and this doth witness unto the
Father that ye are willing to do that which I have commanded you.
And this shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name; and
ye shall do it in remembrance of my blood, which I have shed for you, that ye may witness unto
the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit
to be with you.
12 And I give unto you a commandment that ye shall do these things. And if ye shall
always do these things blessed are ye, for ye are built upon my rock.
13 But whoso among you shall do more or less than these are not built upon my rock, but
are built upon a sandy foundation; and when the rain descends, and the floods come, and the winds
blow, and beat upon them, they shall fall, and the gates of hell are ready open to receive them.
14 Therefore blessed are ye if ye shall keep my commandments, which the Father hath
commanded me that I should give unto you.
15 Verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must
watch and pray always, lest ye be tempted
by the devil, and ye be led away captive by him.
16 And as I have prayed among you even so shall ye pray in my church, among my people
who do repent and are baptized in my name. Behold I am the light; I have set an example for you.
17 It came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words unto
his disciples, he turned again unto the multitude and said unto them:
18 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must
watch and pray always lest ye enter
into temptation; for Satan desireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.
19 Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name;
20 And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is
right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.
21 Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your
children may be blessed.
22 And behold, ye shall meet together oft; and ye shall not forbid any man from coming
unto you when ye shall meet together, but suffer them that they may come unto you and forbid them
23 But ye shall pray for them, and shall not cast them out; and if it so be that they
come unto you oft ye shall pray for them unto the Father, in my name.
24 Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the
light which ye shall hold up -- that which ye have seen me do. Behold ye see that I have prayed
unto the Father, and ye all have witnessed.
25 And ye see that I have commanded that none of you should go away, but rather have
commanded that ye should come unto me, that ye might feel and see; even so shall ye do unto the
world; and whosoever breaketh this commandment suffereth himself to be led into temptation.
26 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these
words, he turned his eyes again upon the disciples whom he had chosen, and said unto them:
27 Behold verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you another commandment, and then
I must go unto my Father that I may fulfil other commandments which he hath given me.
28 And now behold, this is the commandment which I give unto you, that ye shall not
suffer any one knowingly to partake of my flesh and blood unworthily, when ye shall minister it;
29 For whoso eateth and drinketh my flesh and blood unworthily eateth and drinketh
damnation to his soul; therefore if ye know that a man is unworthy to eat and drink of my flesh
and blood ye shall forbid him.
30 Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out from among you, but ye shall minister unto
him and shall pray for him unto the Father, in my name; and if it so be that he repenteth and is
baptized in my name, then shall ye receive him, and shall minister unto him of my flesh and
31 But if he repent not he shall not be numbered among my people, that he may not
destroy my people, for behold I know my sheep, and they are numbered.
32 Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out of your synagogues, or your places of
worship, for unto such shall ye continue to minister; for ye know not but what they will return
and repent, and come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I shall heal them; and ye shall be
the means of bringing salvation unto them.
33 Therefore, keep these sayings which I have commanded you that ye come not under
condemnation; for wo unto him whom the Father condemneth.
34 And I give you these commandments because of the disputations which have been
among you. And blessed are ye if ye have no disputations among you.
