Passage: Mosiah 12:15 - Mosiah 13:9
15 Therefore, he took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and also the plates of Nephi and all the things which he had kept and preserved according to the commandments of God,
16 And after having translated and caused to be written the records which were on the plates of gold which had been found by the people of Limhi, which were delivered to him by the hand of Limhi-
17 And this he did because of the great anxiety of his people, for they were desirous beyond measure to know concerning those people which had been destroyed-
18 And now he translated them by the means of those two stones which were fastened into the two rims of a bow;
19 Now these things were prepared from the beginning and were handed down from generation to generation for the purpose of interpreting languages;
20 And they have been kept and preserved by the hand of the Lord, that He should discover to every creature which should possess the land the iniquities and abominations of His people;
21 And whosoever has these things is called seer after the manner of old times-
22 Now after Mosiah had finished translating these records, Behold, it gave an account of the people which were destroyed, From the time that they were destroyed back to the building of the Great Tower, At the time the Lord confounded the language of the people,
23 and they were scattered abroad upon the face of all the earth, Yea, and even from that time until the creation of Adam-
24 Now this account did cause the people of Mosiah to mourn exceedingly, Yea, they were filled with sorrow;
25 Nevertheless, it gave them much knowledge in the which they did rejoice;
26 And this account shall be written hereafter; For behold, it is expedient that all people should know the things which are written in this account-
1 And now, as I said unto you that after King Mosiah had done these things, he took the plates of brass and all the things which he had kept and conferred them upon Alma which was the son of Alma-
2 Yea, all the records, and also the interpreters- And conferred them upon him and commanding him that he should keep and preserve them, and also keep a record of the people, Handing them down from one generation to another, even as they had been handed down from the time that Lehi left Jerusalem.
3 Now when Mosiah had done this, he sent out through all the land, among all the people, desiring to know their will concerning who should be their king.
4 And it came to pass that the voice of the people came, saying: "We are desirous that Aaron, thy son, should be our king and our ruler."
5 Now Aaron had gone up to the Land of Nephi, therefore, the king could not confer the kingdom upon him, Neither would Aaron take upon him the kingdom;
6 Neither were any of the sons of Mosiah willing to take upon them the kingdom; Therefore, King Mosiah sent again among the people, yea, even a written word sent he among the people.
7 And these were the words that were written, saying: "Behold, O ye my people, or my brethren, for I esteem you as such, For I desire that ye should consider the cause which ye are called to consider, for ye are desirous to have a king;
8 Now I declare unto you that he to whom that the kingdom doth rightly belong hath declined and will not take upon him the kingdom.
9 "And now if there should be another appointed in his stead, behold, I fear there would rise contentions among you;
