Passage: Helaman 4:14 - Helaman 4:34
14 "Now, O Lord, because of this, their humility, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger, And let Thine anger be appeased in the destruction of those wicked men whom Thou hast already destroyed?
15 "O Lord, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger- yea, Thy fierce anger- And cause that this famine may cease in this land?
16 "O Lord, wilt Thou hearken unto me and cause that it may be done according to my words, And send forth rain upon the face of the earth, that she may bring forth her fruit and her grain in the season of grain?
17 "O Lord, Thou didst hearken unto my words when I said, 'Let there be a famine that the pestilence of the sword might cease'; And I know that Thou wilt, even at this time, hearken unto my words, For Thou saidst that if this people repent, 'I will spare them.'
18 "Yea, O Lord, And Thou seest that they have repented because of the famine and the pestilence and destruction which have come unto them.
19 "And now, O Lord, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger and try again if they will serve Thee? And if so, O Lord, Thou canst bless them according to Thy words which Thou hast said."
20 And it came to pass that in the seventy and sixth year, the Lord did turn away His anger from the people and caused that rain should fall upon the earth, Insomuch that it did bring forth her fruit in the season of her fruit.
21 And it came to pass that it did bring forth her grain in the season of her grain.
22 And behold, the people did rejoice and glorify God, And the whole face of the land was filled with rejoicing; And they did no more seek to destroy Nephi, But they did esteem him as a great prophet and a man of God, having great power and authority given unto him from God;
23 And behold, Lehi his brother was not a whit behind him as to things pertaining to righteousness.
24 And thus it did come to pass that the people of Nephi began to prosper again in the land, And began to build up their waste places, And began to multiply and spread, Even until they did cover the whole face of the land- both on the northward and on the southward, from the Sea West to the Sea East.
25 And it came to pass that the seventy and sixth year did end in peace.
26 And the seventy and seventh year began in peace; And the church did spread throughout the face of all the land; And the more part of the people-both the Nephites and the Lamanites-did belong to the church; And they did have exceeding great peace in the land; And thus ended the seventy and seventh year.
27 And also they had peace in the seventy and eighth year, save it were a few contentions concerning the points of doctrine which had been laid down by the prophets.
28 And in the seventy and ninth year, there began to be much strife.
29 But it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi, and many of their brethren which knew concerning the true points of doctrine, having many revelations daily, Therefore, they did preach unto the people insomuch that they did put an end to their strife in that same year.
30 And it came to pass that in the eightieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, There were a certain number of the dissenters from the people of Nephi which had some years before gone over unto the Lamanites and took upon themselves the name of Lamanites,
31 And also a certain number which were real descendants of the Lamanites being stirred up to anger by them, or by those dissenters, Therefore, they commenced a war with their brethren;
32 And they did commit murder and plunder; And then they would retreat back into the mountains and into the wilderness and secret places, Hiding themselves that they could not be discovered, Receiving daily an addition to their numbers, inasmuch as there were dissenters that went forth unto them.
33 And thus in time, yea, even in the space of not many years they became an exceeding great band of robbers; And they did search out all the secret plans of Gaddianton; And thus they became robbers of Gaddianton.
34 Now behold, these robbers did make great havoc, yea, even great destruction among the people of Nephi, and also among the people of the Lamanites.
