Passage: 2 Nephi 3:65 - 2 Nephi 4:19
65 Yea, my God will give me if I ask not amiss; Therefore, I will lift up my voice unto Thee; Yea, I will cry unto Thee, my God, the Rock of my righteousness;
66 Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto Thee, my Rock and mine Everlasting God. Amen.
2 Nephi 4
1 Behold, it came to pass that I, Nephi, did cry much unto the Lord my God because of the anger of my brethren,
2 But behold, their anger did increase against me, insomuch that they did seek to take away my life;
3 Yea, they did murmur against me, saying: "Our younger brother thinketh to rule over us and we have had much trial because of him; Wherefore now let us slay him, that we may not be afflicted more because of his words;
4 For behold, we will not that he shall be our ruler, for it belongeth unto us which are the elder brethren to rule over this people."
5 Now I do not write upon these plates all the words which they murmured against me,
6 But it sufficeth me to say that they did seek to take away my life.
7 And it came to pass that the Lord did warn me that I, Nephi, should depart from them and flee into the wilderness, And all they which would go with me.
8 Wherefore, it came to pass that I, Nephi, did take my family, and also Zoram and his family, and Sam, mine elder brother, and his family, and Jacob and Joseph, my younger brethren, and also my sisters, and all they which would go with me-
9 And all they which would go with me were they which believed in the warnings and the revelations of God, Wherefore, they did hearken unto my words-
10 And we did take our tents and whatsoever things were possible for us and did journey in the wilderness for the space of many days.
11 And after that we had journeyed for the space of many days, we did pitch our tents;
12 And my people would that we should call the name of the place Nephi; Wherefore, we did call it Nephi.
13 And all they which were with me did take it upon them to call themselves the people of Nephi;
14 And we did observe to keep the judgments and the statutes and the commandments of the Lord in all things, according to the law of Moses.
15 And the Lord was with us and we did prosper exceedingly, For we did sow seed and we did reap again in abundance;
16 And we began to raise flocks and herds and animals of every kind.
17 And I, Nephi, had also brought the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, And also the ball, or the compass, which was prepared for my father by the hand of the Lord, according to that which is written.
18 And it came to pass that we began to prosper exceedingly and to multiply in the land;
19 And I, Nephi, did take the sword of Laban and after the manner of it did make many swords, Lest by any means the people which were now called Lamanites should come upon us and destroy us,
