And I would that ye should keep the commandments of God, that ye may prosper in the land according to the promises which the Lord made unto our fathers."
And many more things did King Benjamin teach his sons which are not written in this book.
And it came to pass that after King Benjamin had made an end of teaching his sons, that he waxed old and he saw that he must very soon go the way of all the earth; Therefore, he thought it expedient that he should confer the kingdom upon one of his sons.
Therefore, he had Mosiah brought before him; And these are the words which he spake unto him, saying: "My son, I would that ye should make a proclamation throughout all this land among all this people- or the people of Zarahemla and the people of Mosiah which dwell in this land-that thereby they may be gathered together,
For on the morrow I shall proclaim unto this my people, out of mine own mouth, that thou art a king and a ruler over this people which the Lord our God hath given us.
"And moreover, I shall give this people a name that thereby they may be distinguished above all the people which the Lord God hath brought out of the Land of Jerusalem; And this I do because they have been a diligent people in keeping the commandments of the Lord; 18
And I give unto them a name that never shall be blotted out, except it be through transgression.
"Yea, and moreover I say unto you, that if this highly favored people of the Lord should fall into transgression and become a wicked and an adulterous people, That the Lord will deliver them up, that thereby they become weak like unto their brethren,
And He will no more preserve them by His matchless and marvelous power, as He hath hitherto preserved our fathers;
For I say unto you, that if He had not extended His arm in the preservation of our fathers, they must have fallen into the hands of the Lamanites and become victims to their hatred."
And it came to pass that after King Benjamin had made an end of these sayings to his son, that he gave him charge concerning all the affairs of the kingdom.
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
