Patriarchal Blessing of Jacob Zundel given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... [thou] shall have power to bring many of thy friends according to the flesh with thee to Zion, the city of the living God. Thou shalt not only speak in the German language but thou shalt speak in other tongues and shalt have the power of interpretation (if thou art faithful) ... Thy wife shall be blessed with many blessings yea I will give thee blessings to carry to her (inasmuch as I cannot visit her to lay my hands upon her.) which will make her rejoice.
