Passage: 1 Nephi 3:250 - 1 Nephi 4:14
250 And they are sealed up to come forth in their purity, according to the truth which is in the Lamb, in the own due time of the Lord unto the house of Israel."
251 And I, Nephi, heard and bore record that the name of the apostle of the Lamb was John, according to the word of the angel.
252 And behold, I, Nephi, am forbidden that I should write the remainder of the things which I saw, Wherefore, the things which I have written sufficeth me;
253 And I have not written but a small part of the things which I saw,
254 And I bear record that I saw the things which my father saw; And the angel of the Lord did make them known unto me.
255 And now I make an end of speaking concerning the things which I saw while I was carried away in the Spirit;
256 And if all the things which I saw are not written, the things which I have written are true; And thus it is. Amen.
1 Nephi 4
1 And it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had been carried away in the Spirit and seen all these things, I returned to the tent of my father.
2 And it came to pass that I beheld my brethren; And they were disputing one with another concerning the things which my father had spoken unto them,
3 For he truly spake many great things unto them which were hard to be understood save a man should inquire of the Lord;
4 And they being hard in their hearts, therefore they did not look unto the Lord as they had ought.
5 And now I, Nephi, was grieved because of the hardness of their hearts, and also because of the things which I had seen, And knew they must unavoidably come to pass because of the great wickedness of the children of men.
6 And it came to pass that I was overcome because of my afflictions, For I considered that mine afflictions were great above all because of the destruction of my people, for I had beheld their fall.
7 And it came to pass that after I had received strength, I spake unto my brethren, desiring to know of them the cause of their disputations.
8 And they said: "Behold, we cannot understand the words which our father hath spoken concerning the natural branches of the olive tree, and also concerning the Gentiles."
9 And I said unto them: "Have ye inquired of the Lord?"
10 And they said unto me: "We have not, for the Lord maketh no such thing known unto us."
11 "Behold," I said unto them, "how is it that ye do not keep the commandments of the Lord?
12 How is it that ye will perish because of the hardness of your hearts?
13 "Do ye not remember the thing which the Lord hath said: 'If ye will not harden your hearts and ask Me in faith, believing that ye shall receive-with diligence in keeping My commandments-surely these things shall be made known unto you'?
14 "Behold, I say unto you that the house of Israel was compared unto an olive tree by the Spirit of the Lord which was in our father.
