[D and C] Doctrine and Covenants 61: Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, on the bank of the Missouri River, McIlwaine's Bend, August 12, 1831. HC 1: 202-205. On their return trip to Kirtland the Prophet and ten elders had traveled down the Missouri River in canoes. On the third day of the journey many dangers were experienced. Elder William W. Phelps, in daylight vision, saw the destroyer riding in power upon the face of the waters.

1-12, The Lord has decreed many destructions upon the waters; 13-22, The waters were cursed by John, and the destroyer rideth upon their face; 23-29, Some have power to command the waters; 30-35, Elders are to journey two by two and preach the gospel; 36-39, They are to prepare for the coming of the Son of Man.
