Passage: Alma 2:7 - Alma 2:17

7 And thus ended the seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi; And there was continual peace in all that time.
8 And it came to pass in the eighth year of the reign of the judges that the people of the church began to wax proud, Because of their exceeding riches, and their fine silks and their fine-twined linen,
9 And because of their many flocks and herds, and their gold and their silver, and all manner of precious things which they had obtained by their industry;
10 And in all these things were they lifted up in the pride of their eyes, for they began to wear very costly apparel.
11 Now this was the cause of much affliction to Alma, yea, and to many of the people which Alma had consecrated to be teachers and priests and elders over the church;
12 Yea, many of them were sorely grieved for the wickedness which they saw had begun to be among their people,
13 For they saw and beheld with great sorrow that the people of the church began to be lifted up in the pride of their eyes and to set their hearts upon riches and upon the vain things of the world,
14 That they began to be scornful, one toward another, And they began to persecute those that did not believe, according to their own will and pleasure.
15 And thus in this eighth year of the reign of the judges there began to be great contentions among the people of the church;
16 Yea, there were envyings and strifes and malice and persecutions and pride, even to exceed the pride of those who did not belong to the church of God.
17 And thus ended the eighth year of the reign of the judges; And the wickedness of the church was a great stumbling block to those who did not belong to the church; And thus the church began to fail in its progress.
