AND GIVE THEM UNTO THY NEIGHBOR,
and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun." --- [2nd Samuel 12: 9-11 - Bible]

as Isaac also and Jacob DID NONE OTHER THINGS THAN THAT WHICH THEY WERE COMMANDED; AND BECAUSE THEY DID NONE OTHER THINGS THAN THAT WHICH THEY WERE COMMANDED,
THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO THEIR EXALTATION,
according to the promises, and sit upon thrones, and are not angels but are gods.
avid also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the beginning of creation until this time;
AND IN NOTHING DID THEY SIN SAVE IN THOSE THINGS WHICH THEY RECEIVED NOT OF ME.
avid's wives and concubines were given unto him of me, by the hand of Nathan, my servant, and others of the prophets who had the keys of this power;
AND IN NONE OF THESE THINGS DID HE SIN AGAINST ME SAVE IN THE CASE OF URIAH AND HIS WIFE; AND, THEREFORE HE HATH FALLEN FROM HIS EXALTATION,
AND RECEIVED HIS PORTION: AND HE SHALL NOT INHERIT THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, FOR I GAVE THEM UNTO ANOTHER, SAITH THE LORD." --- [D&C 132: 37-39]
