Passage: Jacob 5:42 - Enos 1:14

42 And it came to pass that I, Jacob, began to be old; And the record of this people being kept on the other plates of Nephi, wherefore, I conclude this record, Declaring that I have written according to the best of my knowledge by saying
43 that the time passed away with us, And also our lives passed away, like as it were unto us a dream, We being a lonesome and a solemn people, wanderers cast out from Jerusalem,
44 Born in tribulation in a wild wilderness and hated of our brethren, which caused wars and contentions; Wherefore, we did mourn out our days.
45 And I, Jacob, saw that I must soon go down to my grave; Wherefore, I said unto my son Enos: "Take these plates."
46 And I told him the things which my brother Nephi had commanded me; And he promised obedience unto the commands.
47 And I make an end of my writing upon these plates, which writing hath been small;
48 And to the reader I bid farewell, hoping that many of my brethren may read my words; Brethren, adieu.

6 And all the day long did I cry unto Him; Yea, and when the night came, I did still raise my voice high, that it reached the heavens;
7 And there came a voice unto me, saying: "Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee and thou shalt be blessed."
8 And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie; Wherefore, my guilt was swept away.
9 And I saith: "Lord, how is it done?"
10 And He saith unto me: "Because of thy faith in Christ whom thou hast not heard nor seen;
11 And many years passeth away before that He shall manifest Himself in the flesh; Wherefore, go to it-thy faith hath made thee whole."
12 Now it came to pass that when I had heard these words, I began to feel a desire for the welfare of my brethren the Nephites; Wherefore, I did pour out my whole soul unto God for them.
13 And while I was thus struggling in the spirit, behold, the voice of the Lord came into my mind again, saying:
14 "I will visit thy brethren according to their diligence in keeping My commandments;
