And there was not any light seen, neither fire, nor glimmer, neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars, For so great were the mists of darkness which were upon the face of the land.
And it came to pass that it did last for the space of three days, that there was no light seen; And there was great mourning and howling and weeping among all the people continually;
Yea, great were the groanings of the people because of the darkness and the great destruction which had come upon them.
And in one place they were heard to cry, saying: "O that we had repented before this great and terrible day! And then would our brethren have been spared, And they would not have been burned in that great City Zarahemla."
And in another place they were heard to cry and mourn, saying: "O that we had repented before this great and terrible day and had not killed and stoned the prophets and cast them out!
Then would our mothers and our fair daughters and our children have been spared and not have been buried up in that great City Moronihah." And thus were the howlings of the people great and terrible. 26
And it came to pass that there was a voice heard among all the inhabitants of the earth upon all the face of this land, crying: "Wo! Wo! Wo unto this people! Wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth, except they shall repent!
For the devil laugheth and his angels rejoice because of the slain of the fair sons and daughters of My people; And it is because of their iniquity and their abominations that they are fallen.
"Behold, that great City Zarahemla have I burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof.
"And behold, that great City Moroni have I caused to be sunk in the depths of the sea, And the inhabitants thereof to be drowned.
"And behold, that great City Moronihah have I covered with earth, And the inhabitants thereof to hide their iniquities and their abominations from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and of the saints should not come up anymore unto Me against them.
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.
