Passage: 1 Nephi 1:168 - 1 Nephi 2:4

168 And Laban also was a descendant of Joseph; Wherefore, he and his fathers had kept the records.
169 And now when my father saw all these things, he was filled with the Spirit and began to prophesy concerning his seed, That these plates of brass should go forth unto all nations, kindreds and tongues and people which were of his seed;
170 Wherefore, he said that these plates of brass should never perish, neither should they be dimmed anymore by time;
171 And he prophesied many things concerning his seed.
172 And it came to pass that thus far I and my father had kept the commandments wherewith the Lord had commanded us,
173 And we had obtained the record which the Lord had commanded us and searched them and found that they were desirable, Yea, even of great worth unto us insomuch that we could preserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children;
174 Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us as we journeyed in the wilderness toward the Land of Promise.

2 For it sufficeth me to say that we are a descendant of Joseph.
3 And it mattereth not to me that I am particular to give a full account of all the things of my father, for they cannot be written upon these plates, for I desire the room that I may write of the things of God,
4 For the fullness of mine intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob and be saved;
