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.
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. 10
And it came to pass that Nimrah gathered together a small number of men and fled out of the land and came over and dwelt with Omer.
And it came to pass that Akish begat other sons, And they won the hearts of the people, notwithstanding they had sworn unto him to do all manner of iniquity according to that which he desired.
Now the people of Akish were desirous for gain, even as Akish was desirous for power; Wherefore, the sons of Akish did offer them money, by the which means they drew away the more part of the people after them;
And there began to be a war between the sons of Akish and Akish, which lasted for the space of many years, Yea, unto the destruction of nearly all the people of the kingdom,
Yea, even all, save it were thirty souls and they which fled with the house of Omer; Wherefore, Omer was restored again to the land of his inheritance.
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.
