Verily I say, that inasmuch as ye do this, the fulness of the earth is yours, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and that which climbs upon the trees and walks upon the earth
and the herb, and the good things which come of the earth, whether for food or for raiment, or for houses, or for barns, or for orchards, or for gardens, or for vineyards
all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;
for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul, and all these things were given to man; to be used, with judgment, not to excess, neither by extortion.
And in nothing does man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things, and obey not his commandments
Behold, this is according to the law and the prophets. Learn that he who does the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come.
I, the Lord, have spoken it, and the Spirit beareth record. Amen.
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Thou shalt not steal; neither commit adultery, nor kill, nor do anything like unto it.
Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things
Thou shalt offer a sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in righteousness, even that of a broken heart and a contrite spirit.
And that thou mayest more fully keep thyself unspotted from the world, thou shalt go to the house of prayer and offer up thy sacraments upon my holy day (For verily this is a day appointed unto you to rest from your labors, and to pay thy devotions unto the Most High;)
Nevertheless thy vows shall be offered up in righteousness on all days and at all times;
And inasmuch as ye do these things with thanksgiving, with cheerful hearts and countenances, not with much laughter, for this is sin, but with a glad heart and a cheerful countenance
Verily I say, that inasmuch as ye do this, the fulness of the earth is yours.
