Passage: Mosiah 7:14 - Mosiah 7:34
14 And the seats which were set apart for the high priests, which were above all the other seats, he did ornament with pure gold;
15 And he caused a breastwork to be built before them, that they might rest their bodies and their arms upon while they should speak lying and vain words to his people.
16 And it came to pass that he built a tower near the temple, yea, a very high tower, Even so high that he could stand upon the top thereof and overlook the Land of Shilom, and also the Land of Shemlon which was possessed by the Lamanites; And he could even look over all the land round about.
17 And it came to pass that he caused many buildings to be built in the Land Shilom;
18 And he caused a great tower to be built on the hill north of the Land Shilom which had been a resort for the children of Nephi at the time they fled out of the land.
19 And thus he did do with the riches which he obtained by the taxation of his people.
20 And it came to pass that he placed his heart upon his riches; And he spent his time in riotous living with his wives and his concubines, And so did also his priests spend their time with harlots.
21 And it came to pass that he planted vineyards round about in the land; And he built winepresses and made wine in abundance; And therefore he became a winebibber, and also his people.
22 And it came to pass that the Lamanites began to come in upon his people, upon small numbers, and to slay them in their fields and while they were tending their flocks;
23 And King Noah sent guards round about the land to keep them off, but he did not send a sufficient number, And the Lamanites came upon them and killed them and drove many of their flocks out of the land;
24 Thus the Lamanites began to destroy them and to exercise their hatred upon them.
25 And it came to pass that King Noah sent his armies against them and they were driven back, or they drove them back for a time; Therefore, they returned rejoicing in their spoil.
26 And now because of this great victory, they were lifted up in the pride of their hearts; They did boast in their own strength, saying that their fifty could stand against thousands of the Lamanites;
27 And thus they did boast and did delight in blood and the shedding of the blood of their brethren, And this because of the wickedness of their king and priests.
28 And it came to pass that there was a man among them whose name was Abinadi; And he went forth among them and began to prophesy, saying:
29 "Behold, thus saith the Lord and thus hath He commanded me, saying:
30 'Go forth and say unto this people, thus saith the Lord:
31 Wo be unto this people! for I have seen their abominations and their wickedness and their whoredoms; And except they repent, I will visit them in Mine anger;
32 And except they repent and turn to the Lord their God, behold, I will deliver them into the hands of their enemies,
33 Yea, and they shall be brought into bondage; And they shall be afflicted by the hand of their enemies.
34 'And it shall come to pass that they shall know that I Am the Lord their God and am a jealous God, visiting the iniquities of My people.
