Patriarchal Blessing of Elisha H. Groves (Given by Joseph Smith, Sen.) ... Thy sins are at this time forgiven thee, and I confirm upon thy head the holy ministry unto which thou hast been ordained. Thy life shall be precious in the sight of the Lord, for thou shalt live to a good old age, and if thou wilt keep all the commandments of the Lord, and desire it with all thy heart, thou mayest be translated, that thou shalt never be brought down to the grave, but remember, that thou must become holy, like unto Enoch to obtain this great blessing--or thou mayest tarry. ... thou shalt see the winding up scene of this wicked generation.
