Patriarchal Blessing of Noah Packard given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... I lay my hands upon thy head a second time to seal and confirm upon the[e] a Father[']s blessing a blessing that shall not be taken from the[e]; ... thou shalt have the riches of the Earth The destroyer shall not have power over the[e] to take thy life because of the sealing power, ... many shall rise up against the[e] to destroy the[e]. but they shall be smitten to the ground before the[e] and the arm that is lifted against against the[e] shall be palsied; ... Thou shalt have power over Prisons; for if thou art cast into Prisons, their walls shall be wrent [rent] that the Glory of God may appear in thy deliverance from their Dungeons; for God shall give the[e] great power, nothing shall be withheld from the[e]. ... Thou shalt have power to rais[e] the dead Mothers shall rejoice, having their children raised from the dead, and presented to them. ...

... Thou shalt stand when the Earth shall real to and fro like a drunken man. yea in that day when God shall bring forth all his saints; and if thou desirest it with all thy heart thou shalt have have power as Elijah, to waft thy self to Heaven thou shalt not sleep in the dust for God looks upon the[e] and loves the[e]. The Angel of his presents [presence] shall watch over the[e] and thou shalt stand in the flesh upon Mount Zion with the hundred forty and four thousand and sing the song of Moses and the Lamb. ... I seal the[e] up unto Eternal life, in the name of Jesus Christ even so Amen
