Passage: Mosiah 5:82 - Mosiah 6:15
82 And now when Ammon had made an end of speaking these words, the king rejoiced exceedingly and gave thanks to God, saying:
83 "Doubtless a great mystery is contained within these plates; And these interpreters were doubtless prepared for the purpose of unfolding all such mysteries to the children of men.
84 "O how marvelous are the works of the Lord! And how long doth He suffer with His people!
85 Yea, and how blind and impenetrable are the understandings of the children of men! For they will not seek wisdom, Neither do they desire that she should rule over them;
86 Yea, they are as a wild flock which fleeth from the shepherd and scattereth, And are driven and are devoured by the beasts of the forest."
Intro An account of his people from the time they left the Land of Zarahemla, until the time that they were delivered out of the hands of the Lamanites.
1 I, Zeniff, having been taught in all the language of the Nephites, And having had a knowledge of the Land of Nephi, or of the land of our fathers' first inheritance, And I having been sent as a spy among the Lamanites that I might spy out their forces, that our army might come upon them and destroy them-
2 But when I saw that which was good among them, I was desirous that they should not be destroyed, Therefore, I contended with my brethren in the wilderness, for I would that our ruler should make a treaty with them.
3 But he, being an austere and a bloodthirsty man, commanded that I should be slain, but I was rescued by the shedding of much blood,
4 For father fought against father and brother against brother until the greatest number of our army was destroyed in the wilderness;
5 And we returned, those of us that were spared, to the Land of Zarahemla to relate that tale to their wives and their children.
6 And yet I, being overzealous to inherit the land of our fathers, collected as many as were desirous to go up to possess the land and started again on our journey into the wilderness to go up to the land; But we were smitten with famine and sore afflictions, for we were slow to remember the Lord our God;
7 Nevertheless, after many days wandering in the wilderness, we pitched our tents in the place where our brethren were slain, which was near to the land of our fathers.
8 And it came to pass that I went again with four of my men into the city, in unto the king, that I might know of the disposition of the king, And that I might know if I might go in with my people and possess the land in peace.
9 And I went in unto the king and he covenanted with me that I might possess the Land of Lehi-Nephi and the Land of Shilom,
10 And he also commanded that his people should depart out of that land, And I and my people went into the land, that we might possess it;
11 And we began to build buildings and to repair the walls of the city, Yea, even the walls of the City of Lehi-Nephi, and the City of Shilom;
12 And we began to till the ground, Yea, even with all manner of seeds- with seeds of corn and of wheat and of barley, and with neas and with sheum, and with seeds of all manner of fruits; And we did begin to multiply and prosper in the land.
13 Now it was the cunning and the craftiness of King Laman to bring my people into bondage that he yielded up the land, that we might possess it;
14 Therefore, it came to pass that after we had dwelt in the land for the space of twelve years, that King Laman began to grow uneasy, Lest by any means my people should wax strong in the land and that they could not overpower them and bring them into bondage.
15 Now they were a lazy and an idolatrous people; Therefore, they were desirous to bring us into bondage, that they might glut themselves with the labors of our hands, Yea, that they might feast themselves upon the flocks of our fields.
