In addition to the references in Staples' answer, there is a statement in the book of Doctrine & Covenants: The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit.

God told Solomon that his punishment for these things would come after his death by ...

The mandate to observe the Feast of the Nativity is found in the Apostolic Constitutions, Book V, Section III.XIII: Brethren, ...

For completeness, I would also like to include the following: Genesis 3:23 (Brenton LXX En) 23 And God said, Behold, Adam is become as one of us, to know good and evil, and now lest at any time he stretch forth his hand, and take of the tree of life and eat, and so he shall live for ever— Genesis 11:7 (Brenton LXX En) 7 Come, and having gone ...
