Passage: Mosiah 5:33 - Mosiah 5:53
33 Therefore, being deceived by the cunning and craftiness of King Laman, who having entered into a treaty with King Zeniff, And having yielded up into his hands the possessions of a part of the land, or even the City of Lehi-Nephi and the City of Shilom and the land round about,
34 And all this he did for the sole purpose of bringing this people into subjection, or into bondage.
35 "And behold, we at this time do pay tribute to the king of the Lamanites to the amount of one half of our corn and our barley, and even all our grain of every kind, And one half of the increase of our flocks and our herds;
36 And even one half of all we have or possess the king of the Lamanites doth exact of us, or our lives.
37 "And now, is not this grievous to be borne?
38 And is not this our afflictions great?
39 "Now behold, how great reason have we to mourn!
40 Yea, I say unto you, great are the reasons which we have to mourn. "For behold, how many of our brethren have been slain and their blood hath been spilt in vain? And all because of iniquity;
41 For if this people had not fallen into transgression, the Lord would not have suffered that this great evil should come upon them;
42 But behold, they would not hearken unto His words; But there arose contentions among them, even so much that they did shed blood among themselves.
43 "And a prophet of the Lord have they slain, Yea, a chosen man of God who told them of their wickedness and abominations, And prophesied of many things which are to come, yea, even the coming of Christ;
44 And because he saith unto them that Christ was the God, the Father, of all things, And saith that He should take upon Him the image of man, And it should be the image after which man was created in the beginning-
45 Or in other words, he said that man was created after the image of God, And that God should come down among the children of men and take upon Him flesh and blood and go forth upon the face of the earth;
46 And now because he said this, they did put him to death. "And many more things did they do which brought down the wrath of God upon them;
47 Therefore, who wondereth that they are in bondage and that they are smitten with sore afflictions!
48 "For behold, the Lord hath said: 'I will not succor My people in the day of their transgression, but I will hedge up their ways, that they prosper not; And their doings shall be as a stumbling block before them.'
49 "And again He saith: 'If My people shall sow filthiness, they shall reap the chaff thereof in the whirlwind, And the effects thereof is poison.'
50 "And again He saith: 'If My people shall sow filthiness, they shall reap the east wind which bringeth immediate destruction.'
51 "And now behold, the promise of the Lord is fulfilled and ye are smitten and afflicted;
52 But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart and put your trust in Him, and serve Him with all diligence of mind- And if ye do this, He will, according to His own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage."
53 And it came to pass that after King Limhi had made an end of speaking to his people-for he spake many things unto them and only a few of them have I written in this book- He told his people all the things concerning their brethren which were in the Land of Zarahemla.
