I had a question on these verses.
Abraham 3:4 - "And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the
manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons in the revolutions thereof; that one
revolution was a day unto the Lord, after his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years
according to the time appointed unto that whereon thou standest. This is the reckoning of the
Lord’s time, according to the reckoning of Kolob."
Abraham 3:5 - "And the Lord said unto me: The planet which is the lesser light, lesser than that
which is to rule the day, even the night, is above or greater than that upon which thou standest
in point of reckoning, for it moveth in order more slow; this is in order because it standeth
above the earth upon which thou standest, therefore the reckoning of its time is not so many as
to its number of days, and of months, and of years."
What is the context and meaning?
I had some questions on these verses.
Abraham 1:11 - "Now, this priest had offered upon this altar three virgins at one time, who
were the daughters of Onitah, one of the royal descent directly from the loins of Ham."
What does it mean that royalty existed in the loins of Ham but not in the sons of Noah's
Abraham 1:20,23-24 - "And the Lord broke down the altar of Elkenah, and of the gods of the land,
and utterly destroyed them, and smote the priest that he died; and there was great mourning
in Chaldea, and also in the court of Pharaoh; which Pharaoh signifies king by royal blood
... The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the
daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is
forbidden; When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons
in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land."
How does Pharaoh signify king by royal blood when Egypt signifies that which is forbidden? How
was the curse preserved in Ham when 1:11 says royalty came from the loins of Ham?
This passage seems a little confusing so I have a few questions based on its meaning.
Abraham 1:3 says, "It [the priesthood] was conferred upon me from the fathers; it came down from the fathers,
from the beginning of time, yea, even from the beginning, or before the foundation of the earth, down to the
present time, even the right of the firstborn, or the first man, who is Adam, or first father, through the fathers
Is priesthood the right of the firstborn or is this passage talking about two different things (the priesthood +
the right of the firstborn)?
If these are two separate things, what is the right of the firstborn?
If they are the same things, why is the priesthood a right not available to the second or third born sons? In
the Book of Mormon, why are priests ordained regardless of whether they are the firstborn of their father or
not (Mosiah 11:4-5)?
I had a few questions on this passage in Moses.
Moses 6:55 says, "And the Lord spake unto Adam, saying: Inasmuch as thy children are conceived in sin, even
so when they begin to grow up, sin conceiveth in their hearts, and they taste the bitter, that they may know to
prize the good."
How were Cain, Abel, and Adam's other children conceived in sin? How did sin conceive in Abel's heart as
he was growing up?
Moses 6:10 says, "And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after
his own image, and called his name Seth."
Of all the sons born to Adam, why is there only a reference to Seth being born after Adam's own likeness
