17 And again, in connection with this quotation I will give you a quotation from one of the prophets, who had his eye fixed on the
of the priesthood, the glories to be revealed in the last days, and in an especial manner this most glorious of all subjects belonging to the everlasting gospel, namely, the baptism for the dead; for Malachi says, last chapter, verses 5th and 6th:
Behold, I will send you
the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
JS-H 1: 39 (36-39)
39 He also quoted the next verse differently:
And he shall plant in the hearts of the
made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers. If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.
