Passage: 3 Nephi 3:29 - 3 Nephi 3:39

29 Now behold, this was contrary to the laws of the land- that any man should be put to death except they had power from the governor of the land;
30 Therefore, a complaint came up unto the Land of Zarahemla, to the governor of the land, against these judges which had condemned the prophets of the Lord unto death not according to the law.
31 Now it came to pass that they were taken and brought up before the judge to be judged of their crime which they had done, according to the law which had been given by the people.
32 Now it came to pass that those judges had many friends and kindreds; And the remainder-yea, even almost all the lawyers and the high priests-did gather themselves together and unite with the kindreds of those judges which were to be tried according to the law;
33 And they did enter into a covenant one with another- Yea, even into that covenant which was given by them of old, which covenant was given and administered by the devil to combine against all righteousness-
34 Therefore, they did combine against the people of the Lord and enter into a covenant to destroy them and to deliver those which were guilty of murder from the grasp of justice, which was about to be administered according to the law;
35 And they did set at defiance the law and the rights of their country; And they did covenant one with another to destroy the governor and to establish a king over the land, That the land should no more be at liberty, but should be subject unto kings.
36 Now behold, I will show unto you that they did not establish a king over the land, But in this same year-yea, the thirtieth year- they did destroy upon the judgment seat, yea, did murder the chief judge of the land;
37 And the people were divided one against another, And they did separate one from another into tribes, every man according to his family and his kindred and friends- And thus they did destroy the government of the land-
38 And every tribe did appoint a chief or a leader over them; And thus they became tribes and leaders of tribes.
39 Now behold, there was no man among them save he had much family and many kindreds and friends, Therefore, their tribes became exceeding great.
