Doctrine and Covenants


Section 88


1a Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you, concerning the Apocrypha,

1b There are many things contained therein that are true, and it is mostly translated correctly; there are many things contained therein that are not true, which are interpolations by the hands of men.

1c Verily I say unto you, that it is not needful that the Apocrypha should be translated.

1d Therefore, whoso readeth it let him understand, for the Spirit manifesteth truth; and whoso is enlightened by the Spirit shall obtain benefit therefrom; and whoso receiveth not by the Spirit, cannot be benefited; therefore, it is not needful that it should be translated Amen.
