Passage: Helaman 4:42 - Helaman 4:62
42 And now this great evil which came unto the people because of their iniquity did stir them up again in remembrance of the Lord their God.
43 And thus ended the eighty and first year of the reign of the judges.
44 And in the eighty and second year, they began again to forget the Lord their God.
45 And in the eighty and third year, they began to wax strong in iniquity.
46 And in the eighty and fourth year, they did not mend their ways.
47 And it came to pass in the eighty and fifth year, they did wax stronger and stronger in their pride and in their wickedness; And thus they were ripening again for destruction; And thus ended the eighty and fifth year.
48 And thus we can behold how false, and also the unsteadiness of, the hearts of the children of men. Yea, we can see that the Lord in His great infinite goodness doth bless and prosper those who put their trust in Him.
49 Yea, and we may see at the very time when He doth prosper His people- Yea, in the increase of their fields, their flocks and their herds, And in gold and in silver and in all manner of precious things of every kind, and art;
50 Sparing their lives and delivering them out of the hands of their enemies; Softening the hearts of their enemies that they should not declare wars against them; Yea, and in fine, doing all things for the welfare and happiness of His people-
51 Yea, then is the time that they do harden their hearts, and do forget the Lord their God, and do trample under their feet the Holy One; Yea, and this because of their ease and their exceeding great prosperity.
52 And thus we see that except the Lord doth chasten His people with many afflictions, Yea, except He doth visit them with death and with terror and with famine and with all manner of pestilences, They will not remember Him.
53 O how foolish and how vain and how evil and devilish! And how quick to do iniquity! And how slow to do good are the children of men!
54 Yea, how quick to hearken unto the words of the evil one and to set their hearts upon the vain things of the world! Yea, how quick to be lifted up in pride! Yea, how quick to boast and do all manner of that which is iniquity!
55 And how slow are they to remember the Lord their God and to give ear unto His counsels! Yea, how slow to walk in wisdom's paths!
56 Behold, they do not desire that the Lord their God who hath created them should rule and reign over them; Notwithstanding His great goodness and His mercy toward them, they do set at naught His counsels, And they will not that He should be their guide.
57 O how great is the nothingness of the children of men! Yea, even they are less than the dust of the earth;
58 For behold, the dust of the earth moveth hither and thither, to the dividing asunder at the command of our great and Everlasting God.
59 Yea, behold, at His voice doth the hills and the mountains tremble and quake; And by the power of His voice they are broken up and become smooth, yea, even like unto a valley;
60 Yea, by the power of His voice doth the whole earth shake; Yea, by the power of His voice doth the foundations rock, even to the very center.
61 Yea, and if He saith unto the earth, "Move!"- And it is moved. Yea, if He say unto the earth, "Thou shalt go back, that it lengthen out the day for many hours"- And it is done.
62 And thus according to His word the earth goeth back, And it appeareth unto man that the sun standeth still; Yea, and behold, this is so, for sure it is the earth that moveth and not the sun.
