Passage: 1 Nephi 2:76 - 1 Nephi 2:96
76 And after that they had tasted of the fruit, they were ashamed because of those that were a scoffing at them, And they fell away into forbidden paths and were lost."
77 And now, I, Nephi, do not speak all the words of my father,
78 But to be short in writing, behold, he saw other multitudes pressing forward, And they came and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron, And they did press their way forward, continually holding fast to the rod of iron until they came forth and fell down and partook of the fruit of the tree;
79 And he also saw other multitudes pressing their way toward that great and spacious building;
80 And it came to pass that many were drowned in the depths of the fountain,
81 And many were lost from his view wandering in strange roads,
82 And great was the multitude that did enter into that strange building;
83 And after that they did enter into that building, they did point the finger of scorn at me and those that were partaking of the fruit also, But we heeded them not;
84 Thus are the words of my father: "For as many as heeded them had fallen away,
85 And Laman and Lemuel partook not of the fruit," saith my father.
86 And it came to pass that after my father had spoken all the words of his dream or vision, which were many, He said unto us, because of these things which he saw in a vision, he exceedingly feared for Laman and Lemuel-
87 Yea, he feared lest they should be cast off from the presence of the Lord;
88 And he did exhort them then with all the feeling of a tender parent that they would hearken to his words, in that perhaps the Lord would be merciful to them and not cast them off.
89 Yea, my father did preach unto them;
90 And after that he had preached unto them and also prophesied unto them of many things, he bade them to keep the commandments of the Lord;
91 And he did cease speaking unto them.
92 And all these things did my father see and hear and speak as he dwelt in a tent in the Valley of Lemuel, And also a great many more things which cannot be written upon these plates.
93 And now as I have spoken concerning these plates, behold, they are not the plates upon which I make a full account of the history of my people,
94 For the plates upon which I make a full account of my people I have given the name of Nephi;
95 Wherefore, they are called the plates of Nephi after mine own name; And these plates also are called the plates of Nephi.
96 Nevertheless, I have received a commandment of the Lord that I should make these plates for the special purpose that there should be an account engraven of the ministry of my people,
