11 And it came to pass that there were many of the people of Ammon which were Lamanites by birth did also go forth into this land. 12 And now there are many records kept of the proceedings of this people-by many of this people- Which are particular and very large concerning them. 13 But behold, a hundredth part of the proceedings of this people- Yea, the account of the Lamanites and of the Nephites, And their wars and contentions and dissensions, And their preaching and their prophecies, And their shipping and their building of ships, And their building of temples and of synagogues and their sanctuaries, And their righteousness and their wickedness and their murders and their robbings and their plunderings, And all manner of abominations and whoredoms- Cannot be contained in this work. 14 But behold, there are many books and many records of every kind, And they have been kept chiefly by the Nephites; And they have been handed down from one generation to another by the Nephites, even until they have fallen into transgression, And have been murdered, plundered and hunted, And driven forth and slain and scattered upon the face of the earth, And mixed with the Lamanites until they are no more called the Nephites, becoming wicked and wild and ferocious, Yea, even becoming Lamanites. 15 And now I return again to mine account. Therefore, what I have spoken had passed after there had been great contentions and disturbances and wars and dissensions among the people of Nephi; 16 The forty and sixth year of the reign of the judges ended. 17 And it came to pass that there was still great contentions in the land, Yea, even in the forty and seventh year, And also in the forty and eighth year. 18 Nevertheless, Helaman did fill the judgment seat with justice and equity; Yea, he did observe to keep the statutes and the judgments and the commandments of God; And he did do that which was right in the sight of God continually; And he did walk after the ways of his father, insomuch that he did prosper in the land. 19 And it came to pass that he had two sons- He gave unto the eldest the name of Nephi, and unto the youngest the name of Lehi; And they began to grow up unto the Lord. 20 And it came to pass that the wars and contentions began to cease, in a small degree, among the people of the Nephites, In the latter end of the forty and eighth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi. 21 And it came to pass in the forty and ninth year of the reign of the judges, there was continual peace established in the land- All, save it were the secret combinations which Gaddianton the robber had established in the more settled parts of the land, Which at that time were not known unto those which were at the head of government; Therefore, they were not destroyed out of the land. 22 And it came to pass that in this same year, there was exceeding great prosperity in the church, Insomuch that there were thousands who did join themselves unto the church and were baptized unto repentance; 23 And so great was the prosperity of the church, And so many the blessings which were poured out upon the people, That even the high priests and the teachers were themselves astonished beyond measure. 24 And it came to pass that the work of the Lord did prosper, unto the baptizing and the uniting to the church of God many souls, yea, even tens of thousands. 25 Thus we may see that the Lord is merciful unto all who will, in the sincerity of their hearts, call upon His holy name. Yea, thus we see that the gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, which is the Son of God. 26 Yea, we see that whosoever will lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, Which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, And lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked, And land their souls, yea, their immortal souls, at the right hand of God in the kingdom of heaven, To sit down with Abraham and Isaac and with Jacob and with all our holy fathers to go no more out. 27 And in this year there was continual rejoicing in the Land of Zarahemla, And in all the regions round about, Even in all the land which was possessed by the Nephites. 28 And it came to pass that there was peace and exceeding great joy in the remainder of the forty and ninth year. Yea, and also there was continual peace and great joy in the fiftieth year of the reign of the judges. 29 And in the fifty and first year of the reign of the judges, there was peace also, Save it were the pride which began to enter into the church- Not into the church of God, but into the hearts of the people who professed to belong to the church of God- And they were lifted up in pride, even to the persecution of many of their brethren. 30 Now this was a great evil which did cause the more humble part of the people to suffer great persecutions and to wade through much affliction. 31 Nevertheless, they did fast and pray oft, And did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, And firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, Unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, Yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, Which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God.

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
