Passage: 1 Nephi 1:1 - 1 Nephi 1:11

1 I, Nephi, having been born of goodly parents, therefore, I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father,And having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days,Yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God,Therefore, I make a record of my proceedings in my days;Yea, I make a record in the language of my father, which consists of the learning of the Jews, and the language of the Egyptians;
2 And I know that the record which I make to be true,And I make it with mine own hand,And I make it according to my knowledge.
3 For it came to pass in the commencement of the first year of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, my father Lehi having dwelt at Jerusalem in all his days,And in that same year there came many prophets prophesy- ing unto the people that they must repent or that great City Jerusalem must be destroyed;
4 Wherefore, it came to pass that my father Lehi, as he went forth, prayed unto the Lord, yea, even with all his heart, in behalf of his people.
5 And it came to pass as he prayed unto the Lord there came a pillar of fire and dwelt upon a rock before him,And he saw and heard much;And because of the things which he saw and heard, he did quake and tremble exceedingly.
6 And it came to pass that he returned to his own house at Jerusalem and he cast himself upon his bed, being overcome with the Spirit and the things which he had seen;
7 And being thus overcome with the Spirit, he was carried away in a vision, even that he saw the heavens open,And he thought he saw God sitting upon His throne surrounded with numberless concourses of angels in the attitude of singing and praising their God.
8 And it came to pass that he saw One descending out of the midst of heaven,And he beheld that His luster was above that of the sun at noonday;
9 And he also saw twelve others following Him,And their brightness did exceed that of the stars in the firmament;And they came down and went forth upon the face of the earth.
10 And the first came and stood before my father and gave unto him a book and bade him that he should read it.
11 And it came to pass that as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of the Lord;And he read, saying:"Wo, wo unto Jerusalem, for I have seen thine abominations!"
