Yea, even that same liar which hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning, Which hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets and stoned them and cast them out from the beginning.
Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to write these things that evil may be done away, And that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, But that they may be persuaded to do good continually, That they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved.
And now I, Moroni, proceed with my record.
Therefore, behold, it came to pass that because of the secret combinations of Akish and his friends, Behold, they did overthrow the kingdom of Omer; Nevertheless, the Lord was merciful unto Omer, and also to his sons and to his daughters which were not or which did not seek his destruction;
And the Lord warned Omer in a dream that he should depart out of the land. Wherefore, Omer departed out of the land with his family and traveled many days, And came over and passed by the Hill of Shim,
And came over by the place where the Nephites were destroyed, and from thence eastward, And came to a place which was called Ablom, by the seashore, And there he pitched his tent, And also his sons and his daughters and all his household, save it were Jared and his family. 5
And it came to pass that Jared was anointed king over the people by the hand of wickedness; And he gave unto Akish his daughter to wife.
And it came to pass that Akish sought the life of his father-in-law, And he appealed unto those whom he had sworn by the oath of the ancients, And they obtained the head of his father-in-law as he sat upon his throne giving audience to his people;
For so great had been the spreading of this wicked and secret society that it had corrupted the hearts of all the people; Therefore, Jared was murdered upon his throne, And Akish reigned in his stead.
And it came to pass that Akish began to be jealous of his son; Therefore, he shut him up in prison and kept him upon a little or no food until he had suffered death.
And now the brother of him that suffered death-and his name was Nimrah-was angry with his father because of that which his father had done unto his brother.
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.
