Passage: 1 Nephi 1:135 - 1 Nephi 1:155

135 And now I, Nephi, being a man large in stature, and also having received much strength of the Lord, Therefore, I did seize upon the servant of Laban and held him that he should not flee.
136 And it came to pass that I spake with him, that if he would hearken unto my words- as the Lord liveth and as I live- Even so, that if he would hearken unto our words, we would spare his life.
137 And I spake unto him even with an oath that he need not fear, That he should be a free man like unto us if he would go down in the wilderness with us.
138 And I also spake unto him, saying: "Surely the Lord hath commanded us to do this thing; And shall we not be diligent in keeping the commandment of the Lord?
139 Therefore, if thou wilt go down into the wilderness to my father, thou shalt have place with us."
140 And it came to pass that Zoram did take courage at the words which I spake;
141 Now Zoram was the name of the servant, And he promised that he would go down into the wilderness unto our father;
142 Yea, and he also made an oath unto us that he would tarry with us from that time forth.
143 Now we were desirous that he should tarry with us for this cause: That the Jews might not know concerning our flight into the wilderness, lest they should pursue us and destroy us.
144 And it came to pass that when Zoram had made an oath unto us, our fears did cease concerning him.
145 And it came to pass that we took the plates of brass and the servant of Laban and departed into the wilderness and journeyed unto the tent of our father.
146 And it came to pass that after we had come down into the wilderness unto our father, behold, he was filled with joy; And also my mother Sariah was exceeding glad, for she truly had mourned because of us, For she had supposed that we had perished in the wilderness.
147 And she also had complained against my father, telling him that he was a visionary man, saying: "Behold, thou hast led us forth from the land of our inheritance, And my sons are no more and we perish in the wilderness."
148 And after this manner of language had my mother complained against my father.
149 And it had come to pass that my father spake unto her, saying: "I know that I am a visionary man, For if I had not seen the things of God in a vision, I should not have known the goodness of God, but had tarried at Jerusalem and had perished with my brethren.
150 "But behold, I have obtained a Land of Promise, in the which things I do rejoice;
151 Yea, and I know that the Lord will deliver my sons out of the hands of Laban and bring them down again unto us in the wilderness."
152 And after this manner of language did my father Lehi comfort my mother Sariah concerning us while we journeyed in the wilderness up to the Land of Jerusalem to obtain the record of the Jews.
153 And when we had returned to the tent of my father, behold, their joy was full and my mother was comforted.
154 And she spake, saying: "Now I know of a surety that the Lord hath commanded my husband to flee into the wilderness;
155 Yea, and I also know of a surety that the Lord hath protected my sons and delivered them out of the hands of Laban, And gave them power whereby they could accomplish the thing which the Lord hath commanded them."
