And it came to pass that he said unto Jared: "Give her unto me to wife."
And Jared said unto him: "I will give her unto you if ye will bring unto me the head of my father the king."
And it came to pass that Akish gathered in unto the house of Jared all his kinsfolk and saith unto them: "Will ye swear unto me that ye will be faithful unto me in the thing which I shall desire of you?"
And it came to pass that they all swear unto him by the God of heaven, and also by the heavens, and also by the earth and by their heads, That whoso should vary from the assistance which Akish desired should lose his head,
And whoso should divulge whatsoever thing Akish made known unto them, the same should lose his life. And it came to pass that thus they did agree with Akish,
And Akish did administer unto them the oaths which were given by them of old who also sought power, which had been handed down, even from Cain who was a murderer from the beginning; 90
And they were kept up by the power of the devil to administer these oaths unto the people to keep them in darkness, To help such as sought power to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie, and to commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms;
And it was the daughter of Jared which put it into his heart to search up these things of old, And Jared put it into the heart of Akish; Wherefore, Akish administered it unto his kindreds and friends, leading them away by fair promises to do whatsoever thing he desired.
And it came to pass that they formed a secret combination, even as they of old, Which combination is most abominable and wicked above all in the sight of God;
For the Lord worketh not in secret combinations, Neither doth He will that man should shed blood, But in all things hath forbidden it, from the beginning of man.
And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, For it hath been made known unto me that they are had among all people; And they are had among the Lamanites, And they have caused the destruction of this people of which I am now speaking, And also the destruction of the people of Nephi;
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.
