19 "It is because you have hardened your hearts; Yea, ye will not hearken unto the voice of the Good Shepherd; Yea, ye have provoked Him to anger against you; 20 And behold, instead of gathering you, except ye will repent, Behold, He shall scatter you forth, that ye shall become meat for dogs and wild beasts. 21 "O how could you have forgotten your God in the very day that He hath delivered you? 22 "But behold, it is to get gain-to be praised of men- yea, and that ye might get gold and silver; 23 And ye have set your hearts upon the riches and the vain things of this world, For the which ye do murder and plunder and steal and bear false witness against your neighbor and do all manner of iniquity; And for this cause, wo shall come unto you, except ye shall repent! 24 "For if ye will not repent, Behold, this great city, and also all those great cities which are round about, which are in the land of our possession, shall be taken away, that ye shall have no place in them, For behold, the Lord will not grant unto you strength, as He hath hitherto done, to withstand against your enemies. 25 "For behold, thus saith the Lord: 'I will not show unto the wicked of My strength, to one more than the other, Save it be unto those who repenteth of their sins and hearken unto My words.' 26 "Now therefore, I would that ye should behold, my brethren, that it shall be better for the Lamanites than for you, except ye shall repent; For behold, they are more righteous than you, For they have not sinned against that great knowledge which ye have received; 27 Therefore, the Lord will be merciful unto them; Yea, He will lengthen out their days and increase their seed, Even when thou shalt be utterly destroyed, except thou shalt repent. 28 "Yea, wo be unto you because of that great abomination which hath come among you! And ye have united yourselves unto it, yea, to that secret band which was established by Gaddianton. 29 "Yea, wo shall come unto you because of that pride which ye have suffered to enter your hearts, Which hath lifted you up beyond that which is good because of your exceeding great riches. "Yea, wo be unto you because of your wickedness and abominations! 30 And except ye repent, ye shall perish! Yea, even your lands shall be taken from you and ye shall be destroyed from off the face of the earth. 31 "Behold, now I do not say that these things shall be of myself, Because it is not of myself that I know these things; But behold, I know that these things are true because the Lord God hath made them known unto me; Therefore, I testify that they shall be." 32 And now it came to pass that when Nephi had said these words, Behold, there were men which were judges, which also belonged to the secret band of Gaddianton, And they were angry; 33 And they cried out against him, saying unto the people: "Why do ye not seize upon this man and bring him forth, that he may be condemned according to the crime which he hath done? 34 Why seest thou this man and hearest him revile against this people and against our law?" 35 For behold, Nephi had spoken unto them concerning the corruptness of their law; Yea, many things did Nephi speak which cannot be written; And nothing did he speak which was contrary to the commandments of God. 36 And those judges were angry with him because he spake plain unto them concerning their secret works of darkness; Nevertheless, they durst not lay their own hands upon him, For they feared the people, lest they should cry out against them. Therefore, they did cry unto the people, saying: "Why do ye suffer this man to revile against us? 37 For behold, he doth condemn all this people, even unto destruction, Yea, and also that these our great cities shall be taken from us, that we shall have no place in them; 38 And now we know that this is impossible, For behold, we are powerful and our cities great; Therefore, our enemies can have no power over us." 39 Now it came to pass that thus they did stir up the people to anger against Nephi and raised contentions among them; For there were some which did cry out: "Let this man alone! For he is a good man and those things which he saith will surely come to pass except we repent;
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:

"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.
