Passage: 3 Nephi 3:39 - 3 Nephi 3:49

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.
40 Now all this was done and there were no wars as yet among them; And all this iniquity had come upon the people because they did yield themselves unto the power of Satan;
41 And the regulations of the government were destroyed because of the secret combination of the friends and the kindreds of them which murdered the prophets;
42 And they did cause a great contention in the land, insomuch that the more righteous part of the people- although they were nearly all become wicked-yea, there were but few righteous men among them.
43 And thus six years had not passed away since the more part of the people had turned from their righteousness like the dog to his vomit, or like the sow to her wallowing in the mire.
44 Now this secret combination which had brought so great iniquity upon the people did gather themselves together and did place at their head a man whom they did call Jacob, And they did call him their king;
45 Therefore, he became a king over this wicked band, And he was one of the chiefest which had given his voice against the prophets which testified of Jesus.
46 And it came to pass that they were not so strong in numbers as the tribes of the people which were united together, Save it were their leaders did establish their laws, everyone according to his tribe;
47 Nevertheless, they were enemies-notwithstanding they were not a righteous people- Yet they were united in the hatred of those who had entered into a covenant to destroy the government.
48 Therefore, Jacob seeing that their enemies were more numerous than they, he being the king of the band, Therefore, he commanded his people that they should take their flight into the northernmost part of the land,
49 And there build up unto themselves a kingdom until they were joined by dissenters-for he flattered them that there would be many dissenters- And they become sufficiently strong to contend with the tribes of the people;
