SELECTIONS FROM THE
BOOK OF MOSES
CHAPTER 6
(November—December 1830)
  15 And the children of amen were numerous upon all the face of the land. And in those days bSatan had great cdominion among men, and raged in their hearts; and from thenceforth came dwars and bloodshed; and a man’s hand was against his own brother, in administering death, because of esecret fworks, seeking for gpower.
