An abridgment taken from the book of Ether also,
which is a record of the people of Jared,
Which were scattered at the time the Lord confounded
the language of the people when they were
building a tower to get to heaven-
And I take mine account from the twenty and four plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the book of Ether;
He that wrote this account was Ether, And he was a descendant of Coriantor; And Coriantor was the son of Moron; And Moron was the son of Ethem; And Ethem was the son of Ahah; And Ahah was the son of Seth; And Seth was the son of Shiblon; And Shiblon was the son of Com; And Com was the son of Coriantum; And Coriantum was the son of Amnigaddah; And Amnigaddah was the son of Aaron; And Aaron was a descendant of Heth, who was the son of Hearthom; And Hearthom was the son of Lib; And Lib was the son of Kish; And Kish was the son of Corom; And Corom was the son of Levi; And Levi was the son of Kim; And Kim was the son of Morianton; And Morianton was a descendant of Riplakish; And Riplakish was the son of Shez; And Shez was the son of Heth; And Heth was the son of Com; And Com was the son of Coriantum; And Coriantum was the son of Emer; And Emer was the son of Omer; And Omer was the son of Shule; And Shule was the son of Kib; And Kib was the son of Orihah, which was the son of Jared;
And it came to pass that Coriantor begat Ether; And he died having dwelt in captivity all his days.
And it came to pass that the days of Ether were in the days of Coriantumr; And Coriantumr was king over all the land,
And Ether was a prophet of the Lord. Wherefore, Ether came forth in the days of Coriantumr and began to prophesy unto the people, For he could not be constrained because of the Spirit of the Lord which was in him;
And it came to pass that Ether did prophesy great and marvelous things unto the people which they did not believe because they saw them not.
For behold, they rejected all the words of Ether; For he truly told them of all things from the beginning of man, And how that after the waters had receded from off the face of this land, it became a choice land above all other lands, a chosen land of the Lord-
Behold, Ether saw the days of Christ; And he spake concerning a New Jerusalem upon this land- And he spake also concerning the house of Israel and the Jerusalem from whence Lehi should come- After that it should be destroyed, it should be built up again a holy city unto the Lord;
And I was about to write more, but I am forbidden; But great and marvelous were the prophecies of Ether! But they esteemed him as naught and cast him out, And he hid himself in the cavity of a rock by day, And by night he went forth viewing the things which should come upon the people;
Wherefore, it came to pass that in the first year that Ether dwelt in the cavity of a rock, There were many people which were slain by the sword of those secret combinations fighting against Coriantumr, that they might obtain the kingdom.
And in the second year, the word of the Lord came unto Ether that he should go and prophesy unto Coriantumr, That if he would repent and all his household, the Lord would give unto him his kingdom and spare the people;
And it came to pass that Coriantumr repented not, neither his household, neither the people; And the wars did cease not; And they sought to kill Ether, But he fled from before them and hid again in the cavity of the rock.
Nevertheless, Shiz did not cease to pursue Coriantumr, For he had sworn to avenge himself upon Coriantumr of the blood of his brother which had been slain. And the word of the Lord came to Ether, that Coriantumr should not fall by the sword.
And it came to pass that when Coriantumr had recovered of his wounds, he began to remember the words which Ether had spoken unto him;
And it came to pass that they did gather together all the people upon all the face of the land which had not been slain, save it were Ether.
And it came to pass that Ether did behold all the doings of the people; And he beheld that the people which were for Coriantumr were gathered together to the army of Coriantumr, And the people which were for Shiz were gathered together to the army of Shiz;
And the Lord spake unto Ether and said unto him, "Go forth."
Now the last words which are written by Ether are these: "Whether the Lord will that I be translated, or that I suffer the will of the Lord in the flesh, It mattereth not, if it so be that I am saved in the kingdom of God. Amen."
