very happy
This indictment advances (moves-forward, typically in a purposeful way; cultivates; nurtures; promotes; sustains) the blessedness (Supreme-Happiness) of the common-Man.

2. This criminal-indictment advances (moves-forward, typically in a purposeful way; cultivates; nurtures; promotes) maintains; sustains) the blessedness (supreme-happiness) of man (the human race). But Sons of Adam (men who have fallen from God’s companionship; mortal-men;  men who no longer abide in God’s grace) remain fixated (obsessively attached) to Mormonism’s peculiar (characteristic; strange) Sabbath (restraining; dampening; smothering; subduing; controlling) observances (rituals;  religious-ceremonies consisting of actions performed according to a prescribed order) which profane (defile; desecrate; defile) them,  while making sure to protect their hand (power; influence; capacity to shape policy or ensure favorable treatment from others, especially through status, contacts, or wealth) as a means to carry-on (continue; recommence and resume after a Sunday interruption) their evil business (works; deeds; activities) immediately following their Sunday  (Sabbath; “one-day”) interruption.

you're fired!
Foreigners (non-Israelites; strangers; aliens) simply can’t bring-themselves (muster the courage and resolve) to say (declare; think within themselves; suppose; imagine), “This new generation of Israel’s people is joined (connected; yoked; bound) to Jehovah, in preparation to say (declare; proclaim) that He (Jehovah) is excluding (ejecting; removing; eliminating; getting rid of;  exiling) me from among His people.

3. Not one of the Sons (disciples; subjects; suordinates; vassals; servants; slaves; flunkies; deputies; underlings; gofers; attendants) ) of foreigners (non-Israelites; strangers; aliens) can bring-themselves (muster the courage and resolve) to  say (imagine suppose; declare; avouch affirm; assert) that, “This new generation of Israel’s people is joined (connected; yoked; bound) to Jehovah, in preparation to say (declare; proclaim) that Jehovah is excluding (ejecting; removing; eliminating; getting rid of;  exiling) me from among His people.” And don’t let eunuchs (Mormon prophets and apostles;  Salt Lake’s ministers) dare to claim (argue; maintain; express dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs by stating) “Behold, the priesthood-leaders (teachers) in “my” tree (family-tree; lineage; bloodline; pedigree; family) are ashamed (embarrassed and sorry because of their actions, characteristics, and associations; remorseful; sorry; contrite; regretful; apologetic).”

partners
Salt Lake’s General Authorities appoint  (choose; select) men with-whom to bend (misrepresent; pervert; twist; contort; deform; warp; distort) my authority and those Mormon high-priests, who hold-fast (remain tightly secured) to them.

4. For thus saith the Lord unto Salt Lake’s eunuch’s (castrated-Priesthood-officers; enfeebled-religious-ministers; emasculated-General Authorities) who protect (hedge-about; surround) themselves with thorns (troublemakers; bush-fighters; terrorists; guerrillas; firebrands), keeping-in-mind, to celebrate (acknowledge) their tight-grip-on (stranglehold-on; complete power over; exclusive-ownership-of; choke-hold-on; monopoly-of) my authority,  then they appoint  (choose; select) Melchizedek high-priests with-whom to collaborate (join-forces; combine; unite; ally)  in order to bend (misrepresent; pervert; twist; contort; deform; warp; distort) my authority along with Mormon high-priests,  who hold-fast (remain tightly secured; are-fiercely-loyal) to them by means of my covenant.

reputation
I ascribe unto Mormon-priesthood leadership a worldly (dull; humdrum; dull; monotonous; wearisome; tedious; boring) stigma (reputation) that can never be denied (repudiated; contradicted; controverted).  

5. Then, they impute (attribute; ascribe; trace; credit)  my authority to themselves,  vicariously (indirectly; in a roundabout way;  obliquely; slantwise),  in my temple and by means of surrounding (encircling so as to cut off communication or escape; besieging; enclosing; confining; bounding; circumscribing; restricting within limits) my authority, so that the power and authority to confer benefits upon Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) now depends-on (is controlled-by; is determined-by) their sons (heirs; offspring; dependants; subordinates; vassals; Mormon-high-priests who render obedience to them) and because of Mormon high-priests holding (wielding;  exercising) authority, I ascribe unto them a worldly (dull; humdrum; dull; monotonous; wearisome; tedious; boring) stigma (reputation) that can never be denied (repudiated; contradicted; controverted).
