I didn't find a reference to Moses' calling the Seventy, but the Lord told him to bring 'em along here:

1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.


9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: 10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

And here's the calling of the Twelve:

44 These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: each one was for the house of his fathers.

Not too late I pray.

its says in old testiment that moses caled 1 from every tribe so there would be 12

and then called 70 others to teach people.....and i cant find it...please help

I too have noticed this, to me it acts as further evidence that the LDS is the restored Church of Jesus Christ. It shows to me that Moses was restoring what was lost from the time of Adam/Enoch (as we know from the PoGP) and that Christ restored that same Church in the meridian of time with the Apostles and Seventies he called. This means that the modern Church of Jesus Christ would follow this same pattern that has been used throughout the scriptures.

Why would God stop using the same pattern for his Church that he has been using for the last 6,000 years without failure?
