Passage: Ether 5:31 - Ether 6:10
31 And if he had not had faith, it would not have moved. "Wherefore, Thou workest after that men have faith; For thus did Thou manifest Thyself unto Thy disciples,
32 For after that they had faith and did speak in Thy name, Thou didst show Thyself unto them in great power; And I also rememberest that Thou hast said that Thou hast prepared a house for man, yea, even among the mansions of Thy Father, in the which man might have a more excellent hope; Wherefore, man must hope, or he cannot receive an inheritance in the place which Thou hast prepared.
33 "And again, I remember that Thou hast said that Thou hast loved the world, Even unto the laying down of Thy life for the world, That Thou mightest take it again to prepare a place for the children of men.
34 "And now I know that this love which Thou hast had for the children of men is charity; Wherefore, except men shall have charity, they cannot inherit that place which Thou hast prepared in the mansions of Thy Father;
35 Wherefore, I know by this thing which Thou hast said- that if the Gentiles have not charity because of our weakness- That Thou wilt prove them and take away their talent, yea, even that which they have received, And give unto them which shall have more abundantly."
36 And it came to pass that I prayed unto the Lord that He would give unto the Gentiles grace that they might have charity.
37 And it came to pass that the Lord said unto me: "If they have not charity, it mattereth not unto thee; Thou hast been faithful; Wherefore, thy garments shall be made clean;
38 And because thou hast seen thy weakness, thou shalt be made strong, Even unto the sitting down in the place which I have prepared in the mansions of My Father."
39 And now I, Moroni, bid farewell unto the Gentiles, yea, and also unto my brethren whom I love, until we shall meet before the judgment seat of Christ, Where all men shall know that my garments are not spotted with your blood;
40 And then shall ye know that I have seen Jesus, And that He hath talked with me face to face, And that He told me in plain humility, even as a man telleth another, in mine own language concerning these things; And only a few have I written because of my weakness in writing.
41 And now I would commend you to seek this Jesus of whom the prophets and apostles have written, That the grace of God the Father and also the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of Them, may be and abide in you forever. Amen.
1 And now I, Moroni, proceed to finish my record concerning the destruction of the people of which I have been writing.
2 For behold, they rejected all the words of Ether; For he truly told them of all things from the beginning of man, And how that after the waters had receded from off the face of this land, it became a choice land above all other lands, a chosen land of the Lord-
3 Wherefore, the Lord would have that all men should serve Him which dwelt upon the face thereof- And that it was the place of the New Jerusalem, which should come down out of heaven, and the holy sanctuary of the Lord.
4 Behold, Ether saw the days of Christ; And he spake concerning a New Jerusalem upon this land- And he spake also concerning the house of Israel and the Jerusalem from whence Lehi should come- After that it should be destroyed, it should be built up again a holy city unto the Lord;
5 Wherefore, it could not be a New Jerusalem, for it had been in a time of old, But it should be built up again and become a holy city of the Lord; And it should be built up unto the house of Israel-
6 And that a New Jerusalem should be built up upon this land unto the remnant of the seed of Joseph, for the which things there has been a type- For as Joseph brought his father down into the Land of Egypt, even so he died there;
7 Wherefore, the Lord brought a remnant of the seed of Joseph out of the Land of Jerusalem, That He might be merciful unto the seed of Joseph, that they should perish not, Even as He was merciful unto the father of Joseph, that he should perish not.
8 Wherefore, the remnant of the house of Joseph shall be built up upon this land, And it shall be a land of their inheritance; And they shall build up a holy city unto the Lord, like unto the Jerusalem of old; And they shall no more be confounded until the end come when the earth shall pass away;
9 And there shall be a new heaven and a new earth; And they shall be like unto the old, save the old have passed away and all things have become new.
10 And then cometh the New Jerusalem; And blessed are they which dwell therein, For it is they whose garments are white through the blood of the Lamb; And they are they which are numbered among the remnant of the seed of Joseph which were of the house of Israel.
