While preparing his trial against Doctor Hurlbut Joseph writes in his journal. "My soul delighteth in the Law of the Lord for he forgiveth my sins and will confound mine Enimies. The Lord shall destroy him who has lifted his heel against me, even that wicked man Docter P[hilastus] H[u]rlbut. He will deliver him to the fowls of heaven and his bones shall be cast to the blast of the wind for he lifted his arm against the Almi[gh]ty. Therefore the Lord shall destroy him." Interestingly this passage is in the form of a "chiasmus" similar to passages found in the Book of Mormon.
