REVELATION given through President John Taylor ...

Thus saith the Lord to the Twelve, and to the Priesthood and people of my Church: Let my servants George Teasdale and Heber J. Grant be appointed to fill the vacancies in the Twelve... You may appoint Seymour B. Young to fill up the vacancy in the presiding quorum of Seventies, if he will conform to my law [plural marriage]; for it is not meet that men who will not abide my law shall preside over my Priesthood; ... you shall be my people and I will be your God; and your enemies shall not have dominion over you, for I will preserve you and confound them, saith the Lord, and they shall not have power nor dominion over you; for my word shall go forth, and my work shall be accomplished, and my Zion shall be established, and my rule and my power and my dominion shall prevail among my people, and all nations shall yet acknowledge me. Even so, Amen. Gardo House, Salt Lake City Friday morning, 13 October 1882

[The revelation is published as a pamphlet in Salt Lake City, and in these editions of the Doctrine and Covenants: Swedish in 1888; German in 1893, 1903, and 1920; Danish in 1900.]
