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?

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
