48 But behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart: 49 Look unto God with firmness of mind and pray unto Him with exceeding faith, And He will console you in your afflictions, And He will plead your cause and send down justice upon those who seek your destruction; 50 O all ye that are pure in heart, Lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God and feast upon His love, for ye may if your minds are firm forever. 51 But wo, wo unto you that are not pure in heart, that are filthy this day before God! For except ye shall repent, the land is cursed for your sakes; 52 And the Lamanites which are not filthy like unto you- nevertheless, they are cursed with a sore cursing- shall scourge you even unto destruction; 53 And the time speedily cometh that except ye repent, they shall possess the land of your inheritance; And the Lord God will lead away the righteous out from among you. 54 Behold, the Lamanites, your brethren, whom ye hate because of their filthiness and the cursings which hath come upon their skins, are more righteous than you, 55 For they have not forgotten the commandments of the Lord which were given unto our father that they should have save it were one wife and concubines they should have none, And there should not be whoredoms committed among them; 56 And now this commandment they observe to keep; Wherefore, because of this observance in keeping this commandment, the Lord God will not destroy them, but will be merciful unto them, And one day they shall become a blessed people. 57 Behold, their husbands love their wives and their wives love their husbands, And their husbands and their wives love their children; 58 And their unbelief and their hatred toward you is because of the iniquity of their fathers; Wherefore, how much better are you than they in the sight of your great Creator? 59 O my brethren, I fear that unless ye shall repent of your sins, that their skins will be whiter than yours when ye shall be brought with them before the throne of God. 60 Wherefore, a commandment I give unto you which is the word of God, That ye revile no more against them because of the darkness of their skin, Neither shall ye revile against them because of their filthiness, 61 But ye shall remember your own filthiness and remember that their filthiness came because of their fathers; 62 Wherefore, ye shall remember your children, how that ye have grieved their hearts because of the example that ye have set before them, 63 And also remember that ye may, because of your filthiness, bring your children unto destruction and their sins be heaped upon your heads at the last day. 64 O my brethren, hearken unto my words! Arouse the faculties of your souls! Shake yourselves, that ye may awake from the slumber of death; 65 And loose yourselves from the pains of hell, that ye may not become angels to the devil, to be cast into that lake of fire and brimstone, which is the second death. 66 And now I, Jacob, spake many more things unto the people of Nephi, warning them against fornication and lasciviousness and every kind of sin, telling them of the awful consequences of them; 67 And a hundredth part of the proceedings of this people, which now began to be numerous, cannot be written upon these plates; 68 But many of their proceedings are written upon the larger plates, and their wars and their contentions and the reigns of their kings.
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.
