Exodus 5:23; 23:7 Isaiah 5:23; Proverbs 17:15; 24:24
Michoh 6:10 Are there yet the otzerot (treasures) of wickedness in the bais rasha (the house of the wicked), and the scant measure, the too small eifah (bushel) which is accursed?
Doctrine and Covenants 64 & 70
They sought evil in their hearts, and I, HaShem, withheld my Spirit. They condemned for evil that thing in which there was no evil; I, HaShem, will to retain a strong hold in the land of Zion, for the space of five years, in the which I will not overthrow the wicked, that thereby I may save some. And after that day, I, HaShem, will not hold any guilty that shall go with an open heart up to the land of Zion; for I, HaShem, require the hearts of the children of men. Behold, now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man, and verily it is a day of sacrifice, and a day for the tithing of my people; for he that is tithed shall not be burned at his coming. For after today cometh the burning—this is speaking after the manner of HaShem—for verily I say, tomorrow all the proud and they that do wickedly shall be as stubble; and I will burn them up, for I am HaShem of Hosts; and I will not spare any that remain in Babylon.Wherefore, if ye believe me, ye will labor while it is called today. Wherefore, as ye are agents, ye are on Ad’ni’s errand; and whatever ye do according to the will of HaShem is HaShem’s business.And he hath set you to provide for his saints and sages; or in other words, the righteous, in these last days, that they may obtain an inheritance in the land of Zion. And I, HaShem, declare unto you, and my words are sure and shall not fail, that they shall obtain it. But all things must come to pass in their time. Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. HaShem requireth the heart and a willing mind, and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days. And the rebellious shall be cut off out of the land of Zion, and shall be sent away, and shall not inherit the land. For, verily I say that the rebellious are not of the blood of Ephraim, nor of the House of Israel, nor of the Children of Abraham; wherefore they shall be plucked out. I, HaShem, have made my church in these last days like unto a judge sitting on a hill, or in a high place, to judge the nations. For it shall come to pass that the inhabitants of Zion shall judge all things pertaining to Zion. And liars and hypocrites shall be proved by them, and they who are not apostles and prophets shall be known. And even the priest, who is a judge, and his counselors, if they are not faithful in their stewardships shall be condemned, and others shall be planted in their stead. For I say unto you that Zion shall flourish, and the glory of HaShem shall be upon her. And she shall be an ensign unto the people, and there shall come unto her out of every nation under heaven. And the day shall come when the nations of the earth shall tremble because of her, and shall fear because of her terrible ones. HaShem hath spoken it. Amen.
Hearken, O ye inhabitants of Zion, and all ye people of my church who are afar off, and hear the word of HaShem which I give unto my servants by the way of commandment unto them. For I give unto them a commandment; wherefore hearken and hear, for thus saith HaShem unto them— I, HaShem, have appointed them, and ordained them to be stewards over the revelations and commandments which I have given unto them, and which I shall hereafter give unto them; And an account of this stewardship will I require of them in the day of judgment. Wherefore, I have appointed unto them, and this is their business in the church of G-d, to manage them and the concerns thereof, yea, the benefits thereof. Wherefore, a commandment I give unto them, that they shall not give these things unto the church, neither unto the world; Nevertheless, inasmuch as they receive more than is needful for their necessities and their wants, it shall be given into my storehouse; And the benefits shall be consecrated unto the inhabitants of Zion, and unto their generations, inasmuch as they become heirs according to the laws of the kingdom. This is what HaShem requires of every man in his stewardship, even as I, HaShem, have appointed or shall hereafter appoint unto any man. And none are exempt from this law who belong to the church of the living G-d; Yea, neither the priest, neither the agent who keepeth HaShem’s storehouse, neither he who is appointed in a stewardship over temporal things. He who is appointed to administer spiritual things, the same is worthy of his hire, even as those who are appointed to a stewardship to administer in temporal things; Yea, even more abundantly, which abundance is multiplied unto them through the manifestations of the Spirit. Nevertheless, in your temporal things you shall be equal, and this not grudgingly, otherwise the abundance of the manifestations of the Spirit shall be withheld. Now, this commandment I give unto my servants for their benefit while they remain, for a manifestation of my blessings upon their heads, and for a reward of their diligence and for their security; For food and for raiment; for an inheritance; for houses and for lands, in whatsoever circumstances I, HaShem, shall place them, and whithersoever I, HaShem, shall send them. For they have been faithful over many things and have done well inasmuch as they have not sinned. I, HaShem, am merciful and will bless them, and they shall enter into the joy of these things. Even so. Amen.
