Doctrine and Covenants 52:14-19
And again, I will give unto you a pattern in all things, that ye may not be deceived3
; for Satan is abroad in the land6
, and he goeth forth deceiving3
Wherefore he that7
prayeth, whose spirit is contrite1
, the same is accepted of me if he obey mine ordinances4
16 He that7
speaketh, whose spirit is contrite1
, whose language is meek5
and edifieth, the same is of God if he obey mine ordinances4
And again, he that7 trembleth2
under my power shall be made strong, and shall bring forth fruits of praise and wisdom, according to the revelations9
and truths which I have given you.
And again, he that7
is overcome and bringeth not forth fruits, even according to this pattern, is not of me8
Wherefore, by this pattern ye shall know the spirits in all cases under the whole heavens6
Old Testament (KJV) Isaiah 66:1-5
1 Thus saith the LORD9
, The heaven6
is my throne, and the earth6
is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor5
and of a contrite1
spirit, and trembleth2
at my word9
3 He that7 killeth an ox4
is as if he slew a man; he that7 sacrificeth a lamb4
, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that7 offereth an oblation4
, as if he offered swine's blood; he that7 burneth incense4
, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
I also will choose their delusions3
, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called9
, none did answer; when I spake9
, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
Hear the word of the LORD9
, ye that tremble2
at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
2nd Book of Commandments 135:1-2
My son, ye have wondered how that ye can overcome the powers of the adversary, and behold ye shall receive this from Me even line upon line, precept upon precept, that the evil one be exposed and be laid bare.
And then shall the prophecy be fulfilled which saith, "And they shall narrowly look upon him, he that7 deceiveth3
the whole nation6
," --for by knowledge it shall be done.
