Jacob, Poet-Seer (Svithe)

As promised, here's something from Jacob, Nephi's younger, more poetic brother:

Come, every one that thirsteth, come ye
to the waters; and he that hath no money,
come buy and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk
without money and without price. Wherefore,
do not spend money for that which is of no worth,
nor your labor for that which cannot
satisfy. Hearken diligently unto me, and
remember the words which I have spoken;
and come unto the Holy One of Israel,
and feast upon that which perisheth not,
neither can be corrupted,
and let your soul delight in fatness. (2 Nephi 9:50-51)
