THE BOOK OF ETHER
O Lord, thou hast said that we must be encompassed about by the floods. Now behold, O Lord, and do not be with thy servant because of his weakness before thee; for we know that thou art holy and dwellest in the heavens, and that we are bunworthy
before thee; because of the cfall
have become evil continually; nevertheless, O Lord, thou hast given us a commandment that we must call upon thee, that from thee we may receive according to our desires.
