Passage: Helaman 3:7 - Helaman 3:27

7 Then were his people easy to be entreated, firm to keep the commandments of God and slow to be led to do iniquity; And they were quick to hearken unto the words of the Lord;
8 Yea, if my days could have been in those days, then would my soul have had joy in the righteousness of my brethren.
9 "But behold, I am consigned that these are my days, and that my soul shall be filled with sorrow because of this, the wickedness of my brethren."
10 And behold, now it came to pass that it was upon a tower which was in the garden of Nephi- which was by the highway which led to the chief market which was in the City of Zarahemla-
11 Therefore, as Nephi had bowed himself upon the tower which was in his garden- which tower was also near unto the garden gate which led by the highway-
12 And it came to pass that there were certain men passing by and saw Nephi as he was a pouring out his soul unto God upon the tower; And they ran and told the people what they had seen; And the people came together in multitudes that they might know the cause of so great mourning for the wickedness of the people.
13 And now when Nephi arose, he beheld the multitudes of people which had gathered together.
14 And it came to pass that he opened his mouth and said unto them: "Behold, why have ye gathered yourselves together? That I may tell you of your iniquities?
15 "Yea, because I have got upon my tower, that I might pour out my soul unto my God because of the exceeding sorrow of my heart, which is because of your iniquities,
16 And because of my mourning and lamentation, Ye have gathered yourselves together and do marvel; Yea, and ye have great need to marvel;
17 Yea, ye had ought to marvel because ye are given away, that the devil hath got so great hold upon your hearts; Yea, how could ye have given away to the enticing of him who art seeking to hurl away your souls down to everlasting misery and endless wo?
18 "O repent ye! repent ye! Why will ye die? "Turn ye! turn ye unto the Lord your God! Why hath He forsaken you?
19 "It is because you have hardened your hearts; Yea, ye will not hearken unto the voice of the Good Shepherd; Yea, ye have provoked Him to anger against you;
20 And behold, instead of gathering you, except ye will repent, Behold, He shall scatter you forth, that ye shall become meat for dogs and wild beasts.
21 "O how could you have forgotten your God in the very day that He hath delivered you?
22 "But behold, it is to get gain-to be praised of men- yea, and that ye might get gold and silver;
23 And ye have set your hearts upon the riches and the vain things of this world, For the which ye do murder and plunder and steal and bear false witness against your neighbor and do all manner of iniquity; And for this cause, wo shall come unto you, except ye shall repent!
24 "For if ye will not repent, Behold, this great city, and also all those great cities which are round about, which are in the land of our possession, shall be taken away, that ye shall have no place in them, For behold, the Lord will not grant unto you strength, as He hath hitherto done, to withstand against your enemies.
25 "For behold, thus saith the Lord: 'I will not show unto the wicked of My strength, to one more than the other, Save it be unto those who repenteth of their sins and hearken unto My words.'
26 "Now therefore, I would that ye should behold, my brethren, that it shall be better for the Lamanites than for you, except ye shall repent; For behold, they are more righteous than you, For they have not sinned against that great knowledge which ye have received;
27 Therefore, the Lord will be merciful unto them; Yea, He will lengthen out their days and increase their seed, Even when thou shalt be utterly destroyed, except thou shalt repent.
