Passage: Mosiah 13:35 - Mosiah 13:55
35 "Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right, But it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right;
36 Therefore, this shall ye observe, and make it your law to do your business by the voice of the people;
37 And if the time cometh that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you,
38 Yea, then is the time He will visit you with great destruction, even as He hath hitherto visited this land.
39 "And now if ye have judges, and they do not judge you according to the law which has been given, ye can cause that they may be judged of a higher judge;
40 If your higher judges doth not judge righteous judgments, ye shall cause that a small number of your lower judges should be gathered together and they shall judge your higher judges, according to the voice of the people;
41 And I command you to do these things in the fear of the Lord.
42 "And I command you to do these things and that ye have no king, That if these people commit sins and iniquities, they shall be answered upon their own heads;
43 For behold I say unto you, the sins of many people have been caused by the iniquities of their kings, Therefore, their iniquities are answered upon the heads of their kings.
44 "And now I desire that this inequality should be no more in this land, especially among this my people;
45 But I desire that this land be a land of liberty, And every man may enjoy his rights and privileges alike, so long as the Lord seeth fit that we may live and inherit the land,
46 Yea, even as long as any of our posterity remaineth upon the face of the land."
47 And many more things did King Mosiah write unto them, unfolding unto them all the trials and troubles of a righteous king,
48 Yea, all the travails of soul for their people, and also all the murmurings of the people to their king; And he explained it all unto them,
49 And he told them that these things had not ought to be, But that the burden should come upon all the people, that every man might bear his part.
50 And he also unfolded unto them all the disadvantages they labored under by having an unrighteous king to rule over them-
51 Yea, all his iniquities and abominations, And all the wars and contentions and bloodshed, And the stealing and the plundering, And the committing of whoredoms and all manner of iniquities which cannot be enumerated-
52 Telling them that these things ought not to be, that they were expressly repugnant to the commandments of God.
53 And now it came to pass after King Mosiah had sent these things forth among the people, they were convinced of the truth of his words;
54 Therefore, they relinquished their desires for a king and became exceedingly anxious that every man should have an equal chance throughout all the land,
55 Yea, and every man expressed a willingness to answer for his own sins.
