Passage: 1 Nephi 1:23 - 1 Nephi 1:43
23 But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all them whom He hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty, even unto the power of deliverance.
24 For behold, it came to pass that the Lord spake unto my father, yea, even in a dream, and saith unto him:"Blessed art thou, Lehi, because of the things which thou hast done;
25 And because thou hast been faithful and declared unto this people the things which I commanded thee,Behold, they seek to take away thy life."
26 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded my father, even in a dream, that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness.
27 And it came to pass that he was obedient unto the word of the Lord;Wherefore, he did as the Lord commanded him.
28 And it came to pass that he departed into the wilderness;
29 And he left his house and the land of his inheritance, and his gold, and his silver, and his precious things,And took nothing with him save it were his family and provisions and tents,And he departed into the wilderness;
30 And he came down by the borders near the shores of the Red Sea;
31 And he traveled in the wilderness in the borders which were nearer the Red Sea;
32 And he did travel in the wilderness with his family, which consisted of my mother Sariah and my elder brethren, which were Laman, Lemuel and Sam.
33 And it came to pass that when he had traveled three days in the wilderness, he pitched his tent in a valley beside a river of water.
34 And it came to pass that he built an altar of stones,And he made an offering unto the Lord and gave thanks unto the Lord our God.
35 And it came to pass that he called the name of the river Laman and it emptied into the Red Sea;And the valley was in the borders near the mouth thereof;
36 And when my father saw that the waters of the river emptied into the fountain of the Red Sea, he spake unto Laman, saying:"O that thou mightest be like unto this river, continually running into the fountain of all righteousness!"
37 And he also spake unto Lemuel, saying:"O that thou mightest be like unto this valley, firm and steadfast and immovable in keeping the commandments of the Lord!"
38 Now this he spake because of the stiff-neckedness of Laman and Lemuel,For behold, they did murmur in many things against their father because that he was a visionary man and that he had led them out of the Land of Jerusalem,To leave the land of their inheritance and their gold and their silver and their precious things and to perish in the wilderness;
39 And this they said that he had done because of the foolish imaginations of his heart.
40 And thus Laman and Lemuel, being the eldest, did murmur against their father;
41 And they did murmur because they knew not the dealings of that God who had created them;
42 Neither did they believe that Jerusalem, that great city, could be destroyed according to the words of the prophets;
43 And they were like unto the Jews which were at Jerusalem which sought to take away the life of my father.
