Intro An account of the death of Lehi. Nephi's brethren rebelleth against him. The Lord warns Nephi to depart into the wilderness, etc. His journeyings in the wilderness, etc. 1 And now it came to pass after I, Nephi, had made an end of teaching my brethren, our father Lehi also spake many things unto them and rehearsed unto them how great things the Lord had done for them in bringing them out of the Land of Jerusalem; 2 And he spake unto them concerning their rebellions upon the waters and the mercies of God in sparing their lives, that they were not swallowed up in the sea; 3 And he also spake unto them concerning the Land of Promise which they had obtained, how merciful the Lord had been in warning us that we should flee out of the Land of Jerusalem, 4 "For behold," saith he, "I have seen a vision in the which I know that Jerusalem is destroyed, 5 And had we remained in Jerusalem, we should also have perished. 6 "But," said he, "notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a Land of Promise, a land which is choice above all other lands, 7 A land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the inheritance of my seed; 8 Yea, the Lord hath consecrated this land unto me and to my children forever, 9 And also all they which should be led out of other countries by the hand of the Lord. 10 "Wherefore, I, Lehi, prophesy according to the workings of the Spirit which is in me that there shall be none come into this land save they should be brought by the hand of the Lord; 11 Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom He shall bring; 12 And if it so be that they shall serve Him according to the commandments which He hath given, it shall be a land of liberty unto them; 13 Wherefore, they shall never be brought down into captivity; If so, it shall be because of iniquity, 14 For if iniquity shall abound, cursed shall be the land for their sakes; 15 But unto the righteous, it shall be blessed forever. 16 "And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations, 17 For behold, many nations would overrun this land, that there would be no place for an inheritance. 18 "Wherefore, I, Lehi, have obtained a promise that inasmuch as they which the Lord God shall bring out of the Land of Jerusalem shall keep His commandments, they shall prosper upon the face of this land, 19 And they shall be kept from all other nations, that they may possess this land unto themselves; 20 And if it so be that they shall keep His commandments, they shall be blessed upon the face of this land,

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.
