Yesterday’s answer:

(A) If he brought the right person

I find it of interest that on all occasions when Joseph visited the Angel Moroni at the Hill Cumorah that he ventured alone with the exception of September 22, 1827, that day Joseph brought Emma, his young wife with him. The answer of why he did this can be found in the previous year tutorial between Moroni and Joseph. Moroni told Joseph on this occasion: That the plates would be given to him if he “brought the right person.” Moroni also told Joseph that he would know who that person would be.

Obviously Joseph listened to the Spirit and brought the “right” person with him on his next and last visit to the Hill Cumorah.
