18 Wherefore, we withstood the Lamanites and swept them away out of our lands and began to fortify our cities, or whatsoever place of our inheritance; 19 And we multiplied exceedingly and spread upon the face of the land, And became exceeding rich in gold and in silver, and in precious things, and in fine workmanship of wood, in buildings and in machinery, and also in iron and copper and brass and steel, Making all manner of tools of every kind to till the ground, And weapons of war- 20 yea, the sharp-pointed arrow and the quiver, and the dart and the javelin, and all preparations for war; 21 And thus being prepared to meet the Lamanites, they did not prosper against us. 22 But the word of the Lord was verified which He spake unto our fathers, saying that, "Inasmuch as ye will keep My commandments, ye shall prosper in the land." 23 And it came to pass that the prophets of the Lord did threaten the people of Nephi according to the word of God, That if they did not keep the commandments, but should fall into transgression, they should be destroyed from off the face of the land. 24 Wherefore, the prophets and the priests and the teachers did labor diligently, exhorting with all longsuffering the people to diligence, Teaching the law of Moses and the intent for which it was given, 25 Persuading them to look forward unto the Messiah and believe in Him to come as though He already was; 26 And after this manner did they teach them. 27 And it came to pass that by so doing, they kept them from being destroyed upon the face of the land, 28 For they did prick their hearts with the word, continually stirring them up unto repentance. 29 And it came to pass that two hundred and thirty and eight years had passed away, after the manner of wars and contentions and dissensions for the space of much of the time; 30 And I, Jarom, do not write more, for the plates are small. 31 But behold, my brethren, ye can go to the other plates of Nephi, For behold, upon them the record of our wars are engraven according to the writings of the kings, or that which they caused to be written; 32 And I deliver these plates into the hands of my son Omni, that they may be kept according to the commandments of my fathers.
Words of Mormon 1 1 And now I, Mormon, being about to deliver up the record which I have been making into the hands of my son Moroni, Behold, I have witnessed almost all the destruction of my people, the Nephites, 2 And it is many hundred years after the coming of Christ that I deliver these records into the hands of my son; And it supposeth me that he will witness the entire destruction of my people; 3 But may God grant that he may survive them, that he may write somewhat concerning them and somewhat concerning Christ, that perhaps someday it may profit them. 4 And now I speak somewhat concerning that which I have written, For after that I had made an abridgment from the plates of Nephi down to the reign of this King Benjamin of which Amaleki spake, 5 I searched among the records which had been delivered into my hands, And I found these plates which contained this small account of the prophets from Jacob down to the reign of this King Benjamin, and also many of the words of Nephi. 6 And the things which are upon these plates pleasing me because of the prophecies of the coming of Christ, And my fathers knowing that many of them have been fulfilled,
