Having been saved from famine and from sicknesses and all manner of diseases of every kind,
And they having been waxed strong in battle that they might not be destroyed, Having been brought out of bondage time after time, And having been kept and preserved until now; And they have been prospered until they are rich in all manner of things.
"And now behold I say unto you, that if this people, who have received so many blessings from the hand of the Lord, should transgress contrary to the light and knowledge which they do have-
I say unto you, that if this be the case-that if they should fall into transgressions, That it would be far more tolerable for the Lamanites than for them.
