|32:1 And now, behold, my beloved brethren, I suppose
that ye ponder somewhat in your hearts concerning that
which ye should do after ye have entered in by the way.
But, behold, why do ye ponder these things in your

after ye had received the Holy Ghost ye could 1speak
with the tongue of angels? And now, how could ye speak
with the tongue of angels save it were by the Holy Ghost?
|| I Corinthians 13:1: Though I speak with the
tongues of men and of angels...
|32:3 Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost;
wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the
words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will

ye ponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I
must speak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken
unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray ye would
