SECTION 16

Revelation through Joseph Smith to Peter Whitmer, Fayette, New York, June 1929

Things that only God and Peter Whitmer know
Absurdity 16:1-6

1 Hearken, my servant Peter, and listen to the words of Jesus Christ, your Lord and your Redeemer.

Listen, Peter, to the words of Jesus. [1]

2 For behold, I speak unto you with sharpness and with power, for mine arm is over all the earth.

My arm is all over the earth.

3 And I will tell you that which no man knoweth save me and thee alone -

4 For many times you have desired of me to know that which would be of the most worth unto you.

5 Behold, blessed are you for this thing, and for speaking my words which I have given unto you according to my commandments.

I'll tell you things that no one knows

except for me and you. [2]

6 And now, behold, I say unto you, that the thing which will be of the most worth unto you will be to declare repentance unto this people, that you may bring souls unto me, that you may rest with them in the kingdom of my Father. Amen.

Amen.
