As he ministered.
1 Behold, now it came to pass that
when Jesus had spoken these words he
looked round about again on the multi-
tude, and he said unto them: Behold, my
time is at hand.
2 I perceive that ye are weak, that ye
cannot understand all my words which
I am commanded of the Father to speak
unto you at this time.
3 Therefore, go ye unto your homes,
and ponder upon the things which I
have said, and ask of the Father, in my
name, that ye may understand, and pre-
pare your minds for the morrow, and I
come unto you again.
4 But now I go unto the Father, and
also to show myself unto the lost tribes
of Israel, for they are not lost unto the
Father, for he knoweth whither he hath
taken them.
5 And it came to pass that when Je-
sus had thus spoken, he cast his eyes
round about again on the multitude,
and beheld they were in tears, and did
look steadfastly upon him as if they
would ask him to tarry a little longer
with them.
6 And he said unto them: Behold, my
bowels are filled with compassion to-
wards you.
7 Have ye any that are sick among
you? Bring them hither. Have ye any
that are lame, or blind, or halt, or
maimed, or leprous, or that are with-
ered, or that are deaf, or that are afflict-
ed in any manner? Bring them hither
and I will heal them, for I have com-
passion upon you; my bowels are filled
with mercy.
8 For I perceive that ye desire that I
should show unto you what I have done
unto your brethren at Jerusalem, for I
see that your faith is sufficient that I
should heal you.
