Doctrine and Covenants 38-41

Leave it in New York


1830—about 200 members

Shortly after receiving Doctrine and Covenants 36, Joseph Smith received the revelation that the Saints were to leave New York and gather to Ohio.


Satan’s efforts were unrelenting. Persecution raged, and the Prophet was arrested a number of times on false charges. The Lord’s will was that Joseph cease revising the Bible and move to Ohio.


“The call to the Ohio was for two reasons. The opposition to the Church in and around Fayette had become bitter. There had been many converts made among the followers of Sidney Rigdon in Kirtland, and the spirit there was friendly.

As persecution arose, and it became necessary to seek protection. The Church moved farther and farther west. The Lord had a design in this.

The place of the City of Zion was west and

it was necessary that eventually the Church

be located there.

Not only were Joseph Smith and Sidney

Rigdon commanded to go to Ohio, but

this came as a command to the entire


Joseph Fielding Smith

Assemble in Ohio

Oliver Cowdery had been on a mission to the Lamanites since 15 October 1830. This mission took him and his companions on a fourteen-hundred-mile journey. The Saints were commanded to move to Ohio in preparation to receive further instructions concerning the establishment of Zion after Oliver Cowdery’s return from the borders by the Lamanites.

Tracks 10-14 (9mins): Leave it in New York

“Leave it in New York”

“There may come persecution; there may come opposition; your motives may be attacked. But if we place our trust in the Almighty and do that which is right, there will come an inner assurance, an inner calm, a peace that will bring joy and happiness to our souls.”

Ezra Taft Benson

D c 382
D&C 38

  • Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: “In this battle between good and evil, you cannot play for the adversary whenever temptation comes along and then expect to suit up for the Savior at temple and mission time as if nothing has happened.

  • “No missionary can be unrepentant of sexual transgression or profane language or pornographic indulgence and then expect to challenge others to repent of those very things! … The Spirit will not be with you, and the words will choke in your throat as you speak them.

  • “Whoever you are and whatever you have done, you can be forgiven. Every one of you … can leave behind any transgression with which you may struggle. It is the miracle of forgiveness; it is the miracle of the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am asking you … to be active and be clean. If required, I am asking you to get active and get clean” (“We Are All Enlisted,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2011, 45).
