50 They were also wroth with him upon the waters because they hardened their hearts against the Lord. 51 And again, they were wroth with him when they had arrived to the Promised Land because they said that he had taken the ruling of the people out of their hands; And they sought to kill him. 52 And again, they were wroth with him because he departed into the wilderness as the Lord had commanded him and took the records which were engraven on the plates of brass, For they said that he robbed them. 53 And thus they have taught their children that they should hate them and that they should murder them and that they should rob and plunder them and do all they could to destroy them; Therefore, they have an eternal hatred toward the children of Nephi. 54 For this very cause hath King Laman-by his cunning and lying craftiness and his fair promises-hath deceived me, that I have brought this my people up into this land that they may destroy them; Yea, and we have suffered this many years in the land. 55 And now I, Zeniff, after having told all these things unto my people concerning the Lamanites, I did stimulate them to go to battle with their mights, putting their trust in the Lord; Therefore, we did contend with them face to face. 56 And it came to pass that we did drive them again out of our land; And we slew them with a great slaughter, even so many that we did not number them. 57 And it came to pass that we returned again to our own land, And my people again began to tend their flocks and to till their ground. 58 And now I, being old, did confer the kingdom upon one of my sons; Therefore, I say no more; And may the Lord bless my people. Amen.
Mosiah 7 1 And now it came to pass that Zeniff conferred the kingdom upon Noah, one of his sons, Therefore, Noah began to reign in his stead; And he did not walk in the ways of his father; 2 For behold, he did not keep the commandments of God, but he did walk after the desires of his own heart, 3 And he had many wives and concubines, 4 And he did cause his people to commit sin and do that which was abominable in the sight of the Lord, 5 Yea, and they did commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness. 6 And he laid a tax of one fifth part of all they possessed: A fifth part of their gold and of their silver, And a fifth part of their ziff and of their copper and of their brass and their iron, And a fifth part of their fatlings, And also a fifth part of all their grain; 7 And all this did he take to support himself and his wives and his concubines, and also his priests and their wives and their concubines. Thus he had changed the affairs of the kingdom, 8 For he put down all the priests that had been consecrated by his father and consecrated new ones in their stead, such as were lifted up in the pride of their hearts; 9 Yea, and thus were they supported in their laziness and in their idolatry and in their whoredoms by the taxes which King Noah had put upon his people; Thus did the people labor exceedingly to support iniquity; 10 Yea, and they also became idolatrous because they were deceived by the vain and flattering words of the king and priests, For they did speak flattering things unto them. 11 And it came to pass that King Noah built many elegant and spacious buildings, And he ornamented them with fine work of wood, And of all manner of precious things- of gold and of silver, and of iron and of brass, and of ziff and of copper; 12 And he also built him a spacious palace and a throne in the midst thereof, all of which was of fine wood and was ornamented with gold and silver and with precious things;

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"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.
