- And now concerning my servant Parley, behold, I say unto him that as I live, I will that he shall declare my gospel and learn of me, and be meek and lowly of heart. And that which I have appointed unto him is that he shall go with my servant Oliver [Cowdery] and Peter [Whitmer Jr.] into the wilderness, among the Lamanites. And Ziba also shall go with them. And I myself will go with them and be in their midst. And I am their advocate with the Father, and nothing shall prevail.
- And they shall give heed to that which is written, and pretend to no other revelation. And they shall pray always, that I may unfold them to their understanding. And they shall give heed unto these words and trifle not, and I will bless them. Amen
A revelation given at Manchester, New York, October 1830, through Joseph Smith Jr. to Parley P. Pratt and Ziba Peterson.
