urkdorf
Salt Lake’s objective is to rake (gather-to-themselves; collect; screen; sift) Israel’s men, looking for ones who are coarse (rough; inferior; unrefined) enough to become hucksters (hawkers; street-vendors; pitch-men; peddlers) to usher-in (talk-big; speak at large gatherings; declare; “blow-hot-air”; “roll out the red carpet”; “beat the drum”; “get on a soapbox”) on behalf of Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Organization.

Every man among Salt lake’s  captains (princes; commanders; leaders) is the rubbish (garbage; dregs; trash; waste) of this world and is weighed-out (thoroughly-regarded; thoroughly-evaluated; thoroughly-judged; thoroughly-reckoned; thoroughly-considered) by the “Libra” (counter-balance; the “remnant-of-Israel’s-people”) that knows the motives of men who are exalted (aggrandized; elevated; deified) only because they have authority over millions of naive Israelite-people (rank and file Mormons), who listen (pay-attention) to them. 

12. …….They have to be men who measure-up (correspond; pass; fulfill; compare; conform; suffice; qualify; correlate; agree; square)  with the “hollowness” (emptiness; vanity; void; vacuousness; barrenness) of Salt Lake’s hand (power; leadership; influence; guidance) from “The-West” (Mormon headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah) and authorities (Mormon-officialdom; Melchizedek Priesthood Organization having power and control); the powers that be”) as a means to disperse (separate and move off quickly in different directions;   scatter; cause to break up and stop functioning) Israel’s authority (jurisdiction; dominion) to suggest a connection (relationship) by blood or marriage with this generation of Israel’s people and every one  among Salt lake’s  captains (princes; commanders; leaders) amounts to the rubbish (garbage; dregs; trash; waste) of this world and are weighed-out (thoroughly-regarded; thoroughly-evaluated; thoroughly-judged; thoroughly-reckoned; thoroughly-considered) by the“Libra” (scale; counter-balance; “Remnant of Israel’s seed”) that will weigh (access; judge; evaluate; weigh) those who are exalted (aggrandized; elevated; deified) because they have authority over millions of Israelites (rank and file Mormons) who they look upon as “tools” (characterized by low intelligence and self-esteem; cretins; fools).

drop
They measure as Drops in a bucket”

15.  Yea…The Spiritually dead corporation of Salt Lake’s Priesthood Organization (dead-body’ corpse; bellies; Other nations besides Israel; confluence of Salt Lake’s men; exaltation of Salt Lake’s men; lifting-up of Salt Lake’s men) are likened to (compare with; approximate; resemble) “drops in a bucket” or like “particles of dust on a scale” (insufficient and inconsequential ) by those weighing (assessing the nature or importance of) them.  Without question, generations (eons; epochs) of Israel’s people reckon (deem; look-at; rate; class) them as  “inglorious-bastards”  (shameful, despicable creatures;  strange-demons; alien-monsters; inhuman-devils) to be cast-out (cast-off; expelled; purged;  removed; gotten rid of; exiled) as dirt (grime; filth; dross; slime).

burnt offering
The ultimate fulfillment of the burnt offering is in the lives sacrificed by Jehovah’s heirs,  Jesus Christ , being the foremost example, of how to be a savior and redeemer of one’s own people. The physical lives of Jehovah’s heirs are to be completely consumed (devoured; expended), their souls are to ascend God, and their skin (that is, their fleece;  natural protective covering) is to be shared with those who officiate (preside-over; direct) their sacrifice (Mathew 27:35). But most importantly, the sacrifice of their pure and undefiled life-blood (which, according to Hebrew thought, contains the soul,i.e. will; desire; self; appetite of a person) can actually atone for his/her  own family’s (lineage’s; house’s; bloodline’s; people’s; dynasty’s) sins and restore their relationship with God.

burnt offerings*

Burnt offerings  – Leviticus 1 and (6:8-13) describe the traditional burnt offering.  Israel’s people brought a male bull, sheep, or goat, with no defect (which symbolized innocence and purity), and killed it at the entrance to the tabernacle. The blood of an innocent and pure individual is understood in Hebrew thought, to be powerful enough (to have life sufficient)  to atone for (redeem) relatives who are guilty of sin. The animal’s blood was drained, and the priest sprinkled blood around the altar. The animal was skinned and cut it into pieces, the intestines and legs washed, and the priest burned the pieces over the altar all night. The priest received the skin as a fee for his help. A turtledove or pigeon could also be sacrificed, although they weren’t skinned. A person could give a burnt offering at any time. It was a sacrifice of general atonement—an acknowledgement of the sin nature and a request for renewed relationship with God. God also set times for the priests to give a burnt offering for the benefit of the Israel’s people as a whole, although the animals required for each sacrifice varied.
