Joseph Smith and several companions were imprisoned in the Liberty Jail on 29 November 1838. In this small fourteen-foot-square building with only one window, one foot by two feet in size, the Prophet spent more than five months. In the midst of these dismal conditions, the Prophet received the eloquent and comforting revelations known now as sections 121 and 122 in the Doctrine and Covenants.
