Passage: 2 Nephi 1:102 - 2 Nephi 1:122
102 Wherefore, he became a devil, having sought that which was evil before God;
103 And because that he had fallen from heaven and had become miserable forever, and he sought also the misery of all mankind,
104 Wherefore, he saith unto Eve-yea, even that old serpent which is the devil, which is the father of all lies- wherefore, he saith, 'Partake of the forbidden fruit and ye shall not die, but ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil.'
105 "And after that Adam and Eve had partaken of the forbidden fruit, they were driven out from the garden of Eden to till the earth;
106 And they have brought forth children, yea, even the family of all the earth;
107 And the days of the children of men were prolonged according to the will of God, that they might repent while in the flesh;
108 Wherefore, their state became a state of probation, And their time was lengthened, according to the commandments which the Lord God gave unto the children of men,
109 For He gave commandment that all men must repent,
110 For He showed unto all men that they were lost because of the transgression of their parents.
111 "And now behold, if Adam had not transgressed, he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden;
112 And all things which were created must have remained in the same state which they were after that they were created, And they must have remained forever and had no end;
113 And they would have had no children; Wherefore, they would have remained in a state of innocence- having no joy, for they knew no misery, doing no good, for they knew no sin.
114 "But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of Him who knoweth all things;
115 Adam fell, that men might be, And men are, that they might have joy,
116 And the Messiah cometh in the fullness of time, that He might redeem the children of men from the fall;
117 And because that they are redeemed from the fall, they have become free forever, knowing good from evil,
118 To act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the Lord at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given.
119 "Wherefore, men are free, according to the flesh; And all things are given them which are expedient unto man;
120 And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life through the great Mediator of all men, Or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil,
121 For he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.
122 "And now my sons, I would that ye should look to the great Mediator and hearken unto His great commandments,
