  2. every man did deal justly one with another;
  3. And they had all things common among them, therefore they were not rich and poor, bond and free, but
  4. they were all made free, and
  5. partakers of the heavenly gift.” IV Nephi 1:3-4

“Therefore verily thus saith the Lord, Let Zion rejoice, for this is Zion, THE PURE IN HEART; therefore let Zion rejoice” DC 94:5c
