And it came to pass that they began to question Amulek that thereby they might make him cross his words, or contradict the words which he should speak.
Now, they knew not that Amulek could know of their design;
But it came to pass as they began to question him, he perceived their thoughts and he saith unto them: "O ye wicked and perverse generation! Ye lawyers and hypocrites! For ye are laying the foundations of the devil;
For ye are laying traps and snares to catch the holy ones of God; Ye are laying plans to pervert the ways of the righteous and to bring down the wrath of God upon your heads, even to the utter destruction of this people.
"Yea, well did Mosiah say, who was our last king, when he was about to deliver up the kingdom- having no one to confer it upon, causing that this people should be governed by their own voices-
Yea, well did he say, that if the time should come that the voice of this people should choose iniquity, That is, if the time should come that this people should fall into transgression, they would be ripe for destruction. 29
"And now I say unto you, that well doth the Lord judge of your iniquities; Well doth He cry unto this people by the voice of His angels, 'Repent ye! repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!'
Yea, well doth He cry by the voice of His angels that 'I will come down among My people with equity and justice in My hands!'
"Yea, and I say unto you that if it were not for the prayers of the righteous which are now in the land, that ye would even now be visited with utter destruction;
Yet it would not be by flood, as were the people in the days of Noah, but it would be by famine and by pestilence and the sword;
But it is by the prayers of the righteous that ye are spared. "Now therefore, if ye will cast out the righteous from among you, then will not the Lord stay His hand, but in His fierce anger He will come out against you;
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.
