And behold, in the end of this book ye shall see that this Gaddianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi-
Behold, I do not mean the end of the book of Helaman, But I mean the end of the book of Nephi from which I have taken all the account which I have written.
And now it came to pass in the forty and third year of the reign of the judges, There was no contention among the people of Nephi, save it were a little pride which was in the church, Which did cause some little dissensions among the people, Which affairs were settled in the ending of the forty and third year.
And there was no contention among the people in the forty and fourth year; Neither was there much contention in the forty and fifth year.
And it came to pass in the forty and sixth year, there were much contentions and many dissensions, In the which there were an exceeding great many which departed out of the Land of Zarahemla and went forth unto the Land Northward to inherit the land.
And they did travel to an exceeding great distance, insomuch that they came to large bodies of water and many rivers; 5
Yea, and even they did spread forth into all parts of the land, Into whatever parts it had not been rendered desolate and without timber because of the many inhabitants which had before inherited the land.
And now no part of the land was desolate, save it were for timber, etc.; But because of the greatness of the destruction of the people which had before inhabited the land, It was called desolate.
And there being but little timber upon the face of the land; Nevertheless, the people which went forth became exceeding expert in the working of cement; Therefore, they did build houses of cement in the which they did dwell.
And it came to pass that they did multiply and spread, And did go forth from the Land Southward to the Land Northward, And did spread insomuch that they began to cover the face of the whole earth- from the sea south to the sea north, from the sea west to the sea east.
And the people which were in the Land Northward did dwell in tents and in houses of cement, And they did suffer whatsoever tree should spring up upon the face of the land, that it should grow up, That in time they might have timber to build their houses, yea, their cities and their temples and their synagogues and their sanctuaries and all manner of their buildings.
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.
