Passage: Mormon 1:8 - Mormon 1:18

8 And it came to pass that in this year, there began to be a war between the Nephites-which consisted of the Nephites and the Jacobites and the Josephites and the Zoramites- And this war was between the Nephites, and the Lamanites and the Lemuelites and the Ishmaelites;
9 Now the Lamanites and the Lemuelites and the Ishmaelites were called Lamanites; And the two parties were Nephites and Lamanites.
10 And it came to pass that the war began to be among them in the borders of Zarahemla by the waters of Sidon.
11 And it came to pass that the Nephites had gathered together a great number of men, even to exceed the number of thirty thousand.
12 And it came to pass that they did have in this same year a number of battles in the which the Nephites did beat the Lamanites and did slay many of them.
13 And it came to pass that the Lamanites withdrew their design, And there was peace settled in the land, And peace did remain for the space of about four years, that there was no bloodshed.
14 But wickedness did prevail upon the face of the whole land, insomuch that the Lord did take away His beloved disciples; And the work of miracles and of healing did cease because of the iniquity of the people,
15 And there were no gifts from the Lord, And the Holy Ghost did not come upon any because of their wickedness and unbelief.
16 And I being fifteen years of age and being somewhat of a sober mind, Therefore, I was visited of the Lord and tasted and knew of the goodness of Jesus.
17 And I did endeavor to preach unto this people, But my mouth was shut and I was forbidden that I should preach unto them; For behold, they had willfully rebelled against their God, And the beloved disciples were taken away out of the land because of their iniquity.
18 But I did remain among them, but I was forbidden that I should preach unto them because of the hardness of their hearts; And because of the hardness of their hearts, the land was cursed for their sake.
