Passage: Enos 1:46 - Omni 1:20
46 And I rejoice in the day when my mortal shall put on immortality and shall stand before Him; Then shall I see His face with pleasure and He will say unto me: "Come unto Me, ye blessed- There is a place prepared for you in the mansions of My Father." Amen.
1 Behold, it came to pass that I, Omni, being com- manded by my father Jarom, that I should write some- what upon these plates to preserve our genealogy,
2 Wherefore in my days, I would that ye should know that I fought much with the sword to preserve my people the Nephites from falling into the hands of their enemies, the Lamanites.
3 But behold, I, of myself, am a wicked man and I have not kept the statutes and the commandments of the Lord as I ought to have done.
4 And it came to pass that two hundred and seventy and six years had passed away; And we had many seasons of peace, And we had many seasons of serious war and bloodshed,
5 Yea, and in fine, two hundred and eighty and two years had passed away; And I had kept these plates according to the commandments of my fathers and I conferred them upon my son Amaron; And I make an end.
6 And now I, Amaron, write the things whatsoever I write, which are few, in the book of my father;
7 Behold, it came to pass that three hundred and twenty years had passed away and the more wicked part of the Nephites were destroyed,
8 For the Lord would not suffer-after He had led them out of the Land of Jerusalem and kept and preserved them from falling into the hands of their enemies- Yea, He would not suffer that the words should not be verified which He spake unto our fathers, saying that, "Inasmuch as ye will not keep My commandments, ye shall not prosper in the land."
9 Wherefore, the Lord did visit them in great judgment; Nevertheless, He did spare the righteous, that they should not perish, but did deliver them out of the hands of their enemies.
10 And it came to pass that I did deliver the plates unto my brother Chemish.
11 Now I, Chemish, write what few things I write in the same book with my brother; For behold, I saw the last which he wrote, that he wrote it with his own hand, And he wrote it in the day that he delivered them unto me;
12 And after this manner we keep the records, for it is according to the commandments of our fathers; And I make an end.
13 Behold, I, Abinadom, I am the son of Chemish;
14 Behold, it came to pass that I saw much war and contention between my people the Nephites and the Lamanites;
15 And I with mine own sword have taken the lives of many of the Lamanites in the defense of my brethren;
16 And behold, the record of this people is engraven upon plates which is had by the kings, according to the generations;
17 And I know of no revelation, save that which has been written, neither prophecy; Wherefore, that which is sufficient is written; And I make an end.
18 Behold, I am Amaleki, the son of Abinadom;
19 Behold, I will speak unto you somewhat concerning Mosiah, which was made king over the Land of Zarahemla;
20 For behold, he being warned of the Lord that he should flee out of the Land of Nephi, And as many as would hearken unto the voice of the Lord should also depart out of the land with him into the wilderness.
