Patriarchal Blessing of James Henry Martineau by Joel Hills Johnson ... Thou shalt visit some of the nations of the earth, and they shall rejoice at the sound of thy voice, and shalt gather them up to the land of Zion. Thou shalt go to the Center Stake of Zion, and shall assist in establishing the saints in that land, and do a great work in the temple which shall be reared there, for the redemption of thy dead; for they shall manifest themselves unto thee when the time comes for their redemption. ...

Thou shalt not come behind the chiefest of the saints of the Most High in the dispensation of the fullness of times. Thou shalt yet take more wives and raise up seed unto the Most High, who shall be great and mighty in their day and generation... When it is necessary for thee to accomplish thy work, the elements shall be subject to thy word, for thou shalt run and not be weary and walk and not faint, and mount up on wings as eagles.

... many of the Nobles of the Earth shall receive counsel from thee and rejoice to hear the words of thy mouth; and thousands of the Lamanites shall lift up their heads and rejoice at the words from thy lips... [I] seal thee up unto eternal lives, to come forth in the morning of the first Ressurrection [Resurrection], with all thy wives and offspring, to inherit glory, immortality and eternal lives, inasmuch as thou art faithful ...

[Patriarchal Blessings]
