Passage: 1 Nephi 1:167 - 1 Nephi 2:13
167 And thus my father Lehi did discover the genealogy of his fathers;
168 And Laban also was a descendant of Joseph; Wherefore, he and his fathers had kept the records.
169 And now when my father saw all these things, he was filled with the Spirit and began to prophesy concerning his seed, That these plates of brass should go forth unto all nations, kindreds and tongues and people which were of his seed;
170 Wherefore, he said that these plates of brass should never perish, neither should they be dimmed anymore by time;
171 And he prophesied many things concerning his seed.
172 And it came to pass that thus far I and my father had kept the commandments wherewith the Lord had commanded us,
173 And we had obtained the record which the Lord had commanded us and searched them and found that they were desirable, Yea, even of great worth unto us insomuch that we could preserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children;
174 Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us as we journeyed in the wilderness toward the Land of Promise.
1 Nephi 2
1 And now I, Nephi, do not give the genealogy of my fathers in this part of my record, Neither at any time shall I give it after upon these plates which I am writing, for it is given in the record which has been kept by my father; Wherefore, I do not write it in this work,
2 For it sufficeth me to say that we are a descendant of Joseph.
3 And it mattereth not to me that I am particular to give a full account of all the things of my father, for they cannot be written upon these plates, for I desire the room that I may write of the things of God,
4 For the fullness of mine intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob and be saved;
5 Wherefore, the things which are pleasing unto the world I do not write, but the things which are pleasing unto God and unto them which are not of the world;
6 Wherefore, I shall give commandment unto my seed that they shall not occupy these plates with things which are not of worth unto the children of men.
7 And now I would that ye might know that after my father Lehi had made an end of prophesying concerning his seed, It came to pass that the Lord spake unto him again, saying that it was not meet for him, Lehi, that he should take his family into the wilderness alone, But that his sons should take daughters to wife, that they might raise up seed unto the Lord in the Land of Promise.
8 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded him that I, Nephi, and my brethren should again return into the Land of Jerusalem and bring down Ishmael and his family into the wilderness.
9 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did again, with my brethren, go forth into the wilderness to go up to Jerusalem.
10 And it came to pass that we went up unto the house of Ishmael, And we did gain favor in the sight of Ishmael insomuch that we did speak unto him the words of the Lord.
11 And it came to pass that the Lord did soften the heart of Ishmael, and also his household, Insomuch that they took their journey with us down into the wilderness to the tent of our father.
12 And it came to pass that as we journeyed in the wilderness, Behold, Laman and Lemuel and two of the daughters of Ishmael, and the two sons of Ishmael and their families, did rebel against us, Yea, against I, Nephi, and Sam and their father Ishmael and his wife and his three other daughters.
13 And it came to pass that in the which rebellion they were desirous to return unto the Land of Jerusalem.
