Section 33

    A revelation given at Kirtland, Ohio, about 8 March 1831, through Joseph Smith Jr. to John Whitmer, in consequence of not feeling reconciled to write at the request of Joseph without a commandment, etc.

  1. Behold, it is expedient in me that my servant John should write and keep a regular history and assist you, my servant Joseph, in transcribing all things which shall be given you. And again, verily I say unto you that he can also lift up his voice in meetings, whenever it shall be expedient.
  2. And again, I say unto you that it shall be appointed unto him to keep the church record and history continually, for Oliver I have appointed to another office. Wherefore, it shall be given him, inasmuch as he is faithful, by the Comforter, to write these things. Even so, Amen.
