Section 126

Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, in the house of Brigham Young, at Nauvoo, Illinois, 9 July 1841 (see History of the Church, 4:382). At this time Brigham Young was President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

1)DEAR and well-beloved brother, Brigham Young, verily thus saith the Lord unto you: My servant Brigham, it is no more required at your hand to leave your family as in times past, for your offering is acceptable to me.

2)I have seen your labor and toil in journeyings for my name.

3)I therefore command you to send my word abroad, and take especial care of your family from this time, henceforth and forever. Amen.
