Patriarchal Blessing of Luman Andros Shirtliff given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... Thou shalt be mighty in the Earth the time shall come when mountains shall fall down at thy word if it shall be calculated to bring forth the Glory of God and the furtherance of his work in the Earth The time come when thou shall say to the winds and waves be still and they shall obey you yea Prisons Bars and Gates shal[l] give way at thy word ... And speaking a language which you didst not know whose speech you neaver [never] did hear If thou wilt look to God by Faith he will give you his spirit and thou shall prevail thou shall preach in Tongues and have the interpretation of tongues ... Thou shall be able to circumscribe the Earth and understand its Formation. I seal thee against the destroyer Nothing shall hurt thee beneath the Heavens ... Thou shall preach much and Travel much by Land and water Preach much in the world among the Nations of the Earth. Finally thou shalt settle down in Zion with thy Family and have an inheritance in Zion Live thein [therein] seeing the Great Glory of God till the Savior comes Thy children shall have an inheritance with the children of Joseph ...

... Thou shall stand with the one hundred and forty four Thousand which shall stand with the Lamb on Mount Zion shall sing their song Thou shall have thy Father[']s name sealed on thy forehead Thou shall tune thy voice and sing with Angels Thou shall have treasures of the Earth This is thy Blessing I seal it on thy head and Forward By the power of the Holy Priesthood I seal the[e] up to Eternal Life. Amen and Amen.
