Passage: Alma 8:50 - Alma 8:60

50 And the judge executed authority and sent forth officers that the man should be brought before him;
51 And he judgeth the man according to the law and the evidences which are brought against him; And thus the man is compelled to pay that which he oweth, or be striped, or be cast out from among the people as a thief and a robber.
52 And the judge receiveth for his wages according to his time-a senine of gold for a day, or a senum of silver which is equal to a senine of gold; And this is according to the law which was given.
53 Now these are the names of the different pieces of their gold and of their silver, according to their value;
54 And the names are given by the Nephites, for they did not reckon after the manner of the Jews which were at Jerusalem; Neither did they measure after the manner of the Jews,
55 But they altered their reckoning and their measure accord- ing to the minds and the circumstances of the people in every generation until the reign of the judges, they having been established by King Mosiah.
56 Now, the reckoning is thus: A senine of gold, a seon of gold, a shum of gold and a limnah of gold;
57 A senum of silver, an amnor of silver, an ezrum of silver and an onti of silver;
58 A senum of silver was equal to a senine of gold, And either for a measure of barley and also for a measure of every kind of grain.
59 Now, the amount of a seon of gold was twice the value of a senine; And a shum of gold was twice the value of a seon; And a limnah of gold was the value of them all;
60 And an amnor of silver was as great as two senums; And an ezrum of silver was as great as four senums; And an onti was as great as them all.

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;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"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.

--Zechariah 12:10
