Passage: 1 Nephi 2:50 - 1 Nephi 2:70

50 And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof and beheld that it was most sweet above all that I ever had before tasted.
51 "Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen;
52 And as I partook of the fruit thereof, it filled my soul with exceeding great joy;
53 Wherefore, I began to be desirous that my family should partake of it also, for I knew that it was desirous above all other fruit.
54 "And as I cast my eyes round about that perhaps I might discover my family also- And I beheld a river of water, And it ran along and it was near the tree of which I was partaking the fruit;
55 And I looked to behold from whence it came and I saw the head thereof a little way off;
56 And at the head thereof I beheld your mother Sariah and Sam and Nephi; And they stood as if they knew not whither they should go.
57 "And it came to pass that I beckoned unto them, And I also did say unto them with a loud voice that they should come unto me and partake of the fruit which was desirable above all other fruit.
58 "And it came to pass that they did come unto me and partake of the fruit also.
59 "And it came to pass that I was desirous that Laman and Lemuel should come and partake of the fruit also;
60 Wherefore, I cast mine eyes toward the head of the river, that perhaps I might see them.
61 "And it came to pass that I saw them, But they would not come unto me and partake of the fruit.
62 "And I beheld a rod of iron; And it extended along the bank of the river and led to the tree by which I stood;
63 And I also beheld a strait and narrow path which came along by the rod of iron, even to the tree by which I stood;
64 And it also led by the head of the fountain unto a large and spacious field, as if it had been a world;
65 And I saw numberless concourses of people, many of whom were pressing forward, that they might obtain the path which led unto the tree by which I stood.
66 "And it came to pass that they did come forth and commenced in the path which led to the tree.
67 "And it came to pass that there arose a mist of darkness, yea, even an exceeding great mist of darkness, Insomuch that they which had commenced in the path did lose their way, that they wandered off and were lost.
68 "And it came to pass that I beheld others pressing forward; And they came forth and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron;
69 And they did press forward through the mists of darkness, clinging to the rod of iron even until they did come forth and partake of the fruit of the tree.
70 "And after that they had partaken of the fruit of the tree, they did cast their eyes about as if they were ashamed.
