Passage: 1 Nephi 5:32 - 1 Nephi 5:52
32 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord said unto him: "Look upon the ball and behold the things which are written!"
33 And it came to pass that when my father beheld the things which were written upon the ball, he did fear and tremble exceedingly, And also my brethren and the sons of Ishmael and our wives.
34 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that the pointers which were in the ball, that they did work according to the faith and diligence and heed which we did give unto them.
35 And there was also written upon them a new writing which was plain to be read, which did give us understanding concerning the ways of the Lord; And it was written and changed from time to time accord- ing to the faith and diligence which we gave unto it.
36 And thus we see that by small means the Lord can bring about great things.
37 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did go forth up into the top of the mountain according to the directions which were given upon the ball.
38 And it came to pass that I did slay wild beasts insomuch that I did obtain food for our families.
39 And it came to pass that I did return to our tents bearing the beasts which I had slain;
40 And now when they beheld that I had obtained food, how great was their joy.
41 And it came to pass that they did humble themselves before the Lord and did give thanks unto Him.
42 And it came to pass that we did again take our journey, traveling nearly the same course as in the beginning;
43 And after that we had traveled for the space of many days we did pitch our tents again, that we might tarry for the space of a time.
44 And it came to pass that Ishmael died and was buried in the place which was called Nahom.
45 And it came to pass that the daughters of Ishmael did mourn exceedingly because of the loss of their father and because of their afflictions in the wilderness;
46 And they did murmur against my father because that he had brought them out of the Land of Jerusalem, saying: "Our father is dead, yea, and we have wandered much in the wilderness, And we have suffered much affliction, hunger, thirst and fatigue; And after all these sufferings we must perish in the wilderness with hunger."
47 And thus they did murmur against my father, and also against me, And they were desirous to return again to Jerusalem.
48 And Laman saith unto Lemuel, and also unto the sons of Ishmael: "Behold, let us slay our father, and also our brother Nephi who hath taken it upon him to be our ruler and our teacher, who are his elder brethren.
49 "Now he saith that the Lord hath talked with him, and also that angels hath ministered unto him!
50 "But behold, we know that he lieth unto us and he telleth us these things; And he worketh many things by his cunning arts, that he may deceive our eyes, thinking perhaps that he may lead us away into some strange wilderness;
51 And after that he hath led us away, he hath thought to make himself a king and a ruler over us, that he may do with us according to his will and pleasure."
52 And after this manner did my brother Laman stir up their hearts to anger.
