82 And he said unto me that while the thunder and the lightning lasted and the tempest, that these things should be, And that darkness should cover the face of the whole earth for the space of three days. 83 "And the angel said unto me that many shall see greater things than these, To the intent that they might believe that these signs and these wonders should come to pass upon all the face of this land; To the intent that there should be no cause for unbelief among the children of men; 84 And this to the intent that whosoever will believe, might be saved, And that whosoever will not believe, a righteous judgment might come upon them; And also, if they are condemned, they bring upon themselves their own condemnation. 85 "And now remember, remember, my brethren, That whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; And whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; For behold, ye are free-ye are permitted to act for yourselves; For behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and He hath made you free- 86 He hath given unto you that ye might know good from evil, And He hath given unto you that ye might choose life or death; And ye can do good and be restored unto that which is good, Or have that which is good restored unto you; Or ye can do evil and have that which is evil restored unto you. 87 "And now my beloved brethren, Behold, I declare unto you that except ye shall repent, your houses shall be left unto you desolate; Yea, except ye repent, your women shall have great cause to mourn in the day that they shall give suck; 88 For ye shall attempt to flee and there shall be no place for refuge. "Yea, and wo unto them which are with child! for they shall be heavy and cannot flee; Therefore, they shall be trodden down and shall be left to perish. 89 "Yea, wo unto this people which are called the people of Nephi! Except they shall repent when they shall see all those signs and wonders which shall be showed unto them; 90 For behold, they have been a chosen people of the Lord; Yea, the people of Nephi hath He loved; And also hath He chastened them, yea, in the days of their iniquities hath He chastened them because He loveth them. 91 "But behold, my brethren, the Lamanites hath He hated because their deeds have been evil continually, And this because of the iniquity of the tradition of their fathers. 92 "But behold, salvation hath come unto them through the preaching of the Nephites; And for this intent hath the Lord prolonged their days. 93 "And I would that ye should behold that the more part of them are in the path of their duty- And they do walk circumspectly before God, And they do observe to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, according to the law of Moses- 94 Yea, I say unto you that the more part of them are doing this, And they are striving with unwearied diligence, that they may bring the remainder of their brethren to the knowledge of the truth; Therefore, there are many which do add to their numbers daily. 95 "And behold, ye do know of yourselves- for ye have witnessed it- That as many of them as are brought to the knowledge of the truth and to know of the wicked and abominable traditions of their fathers and are led to believe the holy scriptures, 96 Yea, the prophecies of the holy prophets which are written, which leadeth them to faith on the Lord and unto repentance, Which faith and repentance bringeth a change of heart unto them- 97 Therefore, as many as have come to this-ye know of yourselves-are firm and steadfast in the faith and in the things wherewith they have been made free. 98 "And ye know also that they have buried their weapons of war, And they fear to take them up lest by any means they shall sin; Yea, ye can see that they fear to sin. 99 "For behold, they will suffer themselves that they be trodden down and slain by their enemies and will not lift their swords against them; And this because of their faith in Christ. 100 "And now because of their steadfastness-when they do believe in that thing which they do believe- For because of their firmness when they are once enlightened, Behold, the Lord shall bless them and prolong their days, notwithstanding their iniquity; 101 Yea, even if they should dwindle in unbelief, the Lord shall prolong their days until the time shall come which hath been spoken of by our fathers- And also by the prophet Zenos, and many other prophets- Concerning the restoration of our brethren the Lamanites again, to the knowledge of the truth. 102 "Yea, I say unto you that in the latter times, the promises of the Lord hath been extended to our brethren the Lamanites;
