Passage: Mosiah 5:57 - Mosiah 5:77
57 And it came to pass that he caused that the plates which contained the record of his people from the time that they left the Land of Zarahemla should be brought before Ammon, that he might read them.
58 Now as soon as Ammon had read the record, the king inquired of him to know if he could interpret languages;
59 And Ammon told him that he could not.
60 And the king saith unto him: "I being grieved for the afflictions of my people, I caused that forty and three of my people should take a journey into the wilderness, That thereby they might find the Land of Zarahemla, That we might appeal unto our brethren to deliver us out of bondage;
61 And they were lost in the wilderness for the space of many days, yet they were diligent and found not the Land of Zarahemla, But returned to this land, having traveled in a land among many waters,
62 Having discovered a land which was covered with bones of men and of beasts, etc., and was also covered with ruins of buildings of every kind,
63 Having discovered a land which had been peopled with a people which were as numerous as the hosts of Israel.
64 "And for a testimony that the things that they had said were true, they have brought twenty-four plates which are filled with engravings, And they are of pure gold.
65 "And behold also, they have brought breastplates which are large, And they are of brass and of copper and are perfectly sound.
66 "And again, they have brought swords- The hilts thereof hath perished, And the blades thereof were cankered with rust.
67 "And there is no one in the land that is able to interpret the language or the engravings that are on the plates;
68 Therefore I said unto thee, canst thou translate?
69 "And I say unto thee again: Knowest thou of anyone that can translate? For I am desirous that these records should be translated into our language;
70 For perhaps they will give us a knowledge of a remnant of the people which have been destroyed, from whence these records came,
71 Or, perhaps they will give us a knowledge of this very people which hath been destroyed; And I am desirous to know the cause of their destruction."
72 Now Ammon saith unto him: "I can assuredly tell thee, O king, of a man that can translate the records, For he hath wherewith that he can look and translate all records that are of ancient date, And it is a gift from God,
73 And the things are called interpreters; And no man can look in them except he be commanded, lest he should look for that he had not ought and he should perish,
74 And whosoever is commanded to look in them, the same is called seer.
75 "And behold, the king of the people which is in the Land of Zarahemla is the man that is commanded to do these things and which hath this high gift from God."
76 And the king saith that: "A seer is greater than a prophet."
77 And Ammon saith that: "A seer is a revelator and a prophet also; And a gift which is greater can no man have, except he should possess the power of God, which no man can, Yet a man may have great power given him from God.
