Passage: Mosiah 1:39 - Mosiah 1:59
39 For I have not commanded you to come up hither to trifle with the words which I shall speak, But that you should hearken unto me and open your ears, that ye may hear, And your hearts, that ye may understand, And your minds, that the mysteries of God may be unfolded to your view.
40 "I have not commanded you to come up hither that ye should fear me, or that ye should think that I, of myself, am more than a mortal man;
41 But I am like as yourselves, subject to all manner of infirmities in body and mind.
42 "Yet as I have been chosen by this people and was consecrated by my father, And was suffered by the hand of the Lord that I should be a ruler and a king over this people, And have been kept and preserved by His matchless power to serve thee with all the might, mind and strength which the Lord hath granted unto me-
43 I say unto you, that as I have been suffered to spend my days in your service, even up to this time, And have not sought gold nor silver nor no manner of riches of you;
44 Neither have I suffered that ye should be confined in dungeons, Nor that ye should make slaves one of another, Or that ye should murder or plunder or steal or commit adultery;
45 Or even I have not suffered that ye should commit any manner of wickedness, And have taught you that ye should keep the commandments of the Lord in all things which He hath commanded you.
46 "And even I, myself, have labored with mine own hands that I might serve you, And that ye should not be laden with taxes, And that there should nothing come upon you which was grievous to be borne; And of all these things which I have spoken, ye yourselves are witnesses this day.
47 "Yet, my brethren, I have not done these things that I might boast, Neither do I tell these things that thereby I might accuse you; But I tell you these things that ye may know that I can answer a clear conscience before God this day.
48 "Behold I say unto you, that because I said unto you that I had spent my days in your service, I do not desire to boast, for I have only been in the service of God;
49 And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom, That ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God.
50 "Behold, ye have called me your king; And if I, whom ye call your king, do labor to serve you, then had not ye ought to labor to serve one another?
51 And behold also, if I, whom ye call your king, who has spent his days in your service and yet hath been in the service of God, doth merit any thanks from you, O how had you ought to thank your heavenly King!
52 "I say unto you my brethren, that if you should render all the thanks and praise which your whole souls hath power to possess to that God who hath created you, And hath kept and preserved you, And hath caused that ye should rejoice, And hath granted that ye should live in peace, one with another-
53 I say unto you, that if ye should serve Him who hath created you from the beginning, And art preserving you from day to day by lending you breath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own will, And even supporting you from one moment to another-
54 I say, if ye should serve Him with all your whole soul, and yet ye would be unprofitable servants.
55 "And behold, all that He requires of you is to keep His commandments; And He hath promised you that if ye would keep His commandments, ye should prosper in the land;
56 And He never doth vary from that which He hath said; Therefore, if ye do keep His commandments, He doth bless you and prosper you.
57 "And now in the first place, He hath created you and granted unto you your lives, for which ye are indebted unto Him.
58 "And secondly, He doth require that ye should do as He hath commanded you, for which, if ye do, He doth immediately bless you, And therefore, He hath paid you,
59 And ye are still indebted unto Him and art and will be forever and ever; Therefore, of what have ye to boast?
