THIRD NEPHI
THE BOOK OF NEPHI
THE SON OF NEPHI, WHO WAS THE SON OF HELAMAN
CHAPTER 26
  14 And it came to pass that he did teach and minister unto the achildren of the multitude of whom hath been spoken, and he did bloose their ctongues, and they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto the people; and he loosed their tongues that they could utter.

14a
Luke 10: 21.
  21 ¶ In that hour Jesus arejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things bfrom the wise and cprudent, and hast revealed them unto dbabes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Alma 32: 23.
  23 And now, he imparteth his word by angels unto men, yea, anot only men but women also. Now this is not all; little bchildren do have words given unto them many times, which cconfound the wise and the learned.
3 Ne. 17: 11.
  11 And it came to pass that he commanded that their alittle children should be brought.
D&C 128: 18.
  18 I might have rendered a aplainer translation to this, but it is sufficiently plain to suit my purpose as it stands. It is sufficient to know, in this case, that the earth will be smitten with a bcurse unless there is a welding clink of some kind or other between the fathers and the dchildren, upon some subject or other—and behold what is that subject? It is the ebaptism for the dead. For we without them cannot be made perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect. Neither can they nor we be made perfect without those who have died in the gospel also; for it is necessary in the ushering in of the dispensation of the ffulness of times, which dispensation is now beginning to usher in, that a whole and complete and perfect union, and welding together of dispensations, and keys, and powers, and glories should take place, and be revealed from the days of Adam even to the present time. And not only this, but those things which never have been revealed from the gfoundation of the world, but have been kept hid from the wise and prudent, shall be revealed unto hbabes and sucklings in this, the dispensation of the fulness of times.

D&C 23: 3.
  3 Behold, I speak unto you, Hyrum, a few words; for thou also art under no condemnation, and thy heart is opened, and thy tongue aloosed; and thy calling is to exhortation, and to bstrengthen the church continually. Wherefore thy duty is unto the church forever, and this because of thy family. Amen.

3 Ne. 19: 32.
  32 And tongue cannot speak the words which he prayed, neither can be awritten by man the words which he prayed.
3 Ne. 28: 14 (14, 16)
  14 And it was aforbidden them that they should utter; neither was it given unto them bpower that they could utter the things which they saw and heard;
