And there were not so many of the people of Nephi and of the people of Zarahemla as there were of the Lamanites, Yea, they were not half so numerous.
And now all the people of Nephi were assembled together, And also all the people of Zarahemla; And they were gathered together in two bodies.
And it came to pass that Mosiah did read, and caused to be read, the records of Zeniff to his people, Yea, he read the records of the people of Zeniff from the time they left the Land of Zarahemla until the time they returned again;
And he also read the account of Alma and his brethren and all their afflictions from the time they left the Land of Zarahemla until the time they returned again.
And now when Mosiah had made an end of reading the records, his people which tarried in the land were struck with wonder and amazement, for they knew not what to think;
For when they beheld those that had been delivered out of bondage, they were filled with exceeding great joy. 85
And again, when they thought of their brethren which had been slain by the Lamanites, they were filled with sorrow and even shed many tears of sorrow.
And again, when they thought of the immediate goodness of God and His power in delivering Alma and his brethren out of the hands of the Lamanites and of bondage, they did raise their voices and gave thanks to God.
And again, when they thought upon the Lamanites which were their brethren, of their sinful and polluted state, they were filled with pain and anguish for the welfare of their souls.
And it came to pass that when those which were the children of Amulon and his brethren-which had taken to wife the daughters of the Lamanites- They were displeased with the conduct of their fathers,
And they would no longer be called by the names of their fathers; Therefore, they took upon themselves the name of Nephi, that they might be called the children of Nephi and be numbered among those which were called Nephites.
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.
