Passage: Alma 20:99 - Alma 21:18
99 And thus ended the eighteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
100 And thus ended the record of Alma which was written upon the plates of Nephi.
Intro The account of the people of Nephi and their wars and dissensions in the days of Helaman, according to the record of Helaman which he kept in his days.
1 Behold, now it came to pass that the people of Nephi were exceedingly rejoiced because the Lord had again delivered them out of the hands of their enemies;
2 Therefore, they gave thanks unto the Lord their God, Yea, and they did fast much and pray much, And they did worship God with exceeding great joy.
3 And it came to pass in the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi- that Alma came unto his son Helaman and saith unto him: "Believest thou the words which I spake unto thee concerning those records which have been kept?"
4 And Helaman saith unto him: "Yea, I believe."
5 And Alma saith again: "Believest thou in Jesus Christ, which shall come?" And he saith: "Yea, I believe all the words which thou hast spoken."
6 And Alma saith unto him again: "Will ye keep my commandments?" And he saith: "Yea, I will keep thy commandments with all my heart."
7 Then Alma saith unto him: "Blessed art thou, and the Lord shall prosper thee in this land.
8 "But behold, I have somewhat to prophesy unto thee, But what I prophesy unto thee, ye shall not make known, Yea, what I prophesy unto thee shall not be made known, even until the prophecy is fulfilled; Therefore, write the words which I shall say."
9 And these are the words: "Behold, I perceive that this very people, the Nephites, according to the spirit of revelation which is in me, In four hundred years from the time that Jesus Christ shall manifest Himself unto them, shall dwindle in unbelief.
10 "Yea, and then shall they see wars and pestilences, yea, famines and bloodshed, even until the people of Nephi shall become extinct;
11 Yea, and this because they shall dwindle in unbelief and fall into the works of darkness and lasciviousness and all manner of iniquities.
12 "Yea, I say unto you that because they shall sin against so great light and knowledge, Yea, I say unto you that from that day, even the fourth generation shall not all pass away before this great iniquity shall come.
13 "And when that great day cometh, behold, the time very soon cometh that those which are now- Or the seed of those which are now numbered among the people of the Nephites-shall no more be numbered among the people of Nephi;
14 But whosoever remaineth and is not destroyed in that great and dreadful day shall be numbered among the Lamanites and shall become like unto them- All, save it be a few which shall be called the disciples of the Lord,
15 And them shall the Lamanites pursue, even until they shall become extinct; And now, because of iniquity, this prophecy shall be fulfilled."
16 And now it came to pass that after Alma had said these things to Helaman, he blessed him, and also his other sons, And he also blessed the earth for the righteous' sake.
17 And he said: "Thus saith the Lord God: 'Cursed shall be the land, yea, this land, unto every nation, kindred, tongue and people, unto destruction, which do wickedly, when they are fully ripe.'
18 "And as I have said, so shall it be; For this is the cursing and the blessing of God upon the land, For the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance."
