Passage: Helaman 5:133 - 3 Nephi 1:12
133 Therefore, they can keep us in ignorance, for we cannot witness with our own eyes that they are true;
134 And they will, by the cunning and the mysterious arts of the evil one, work some great mystery which we cannot understand, which will keep us down to be servants to their words, and also servants unto them, For we depend upon them for to teach us the word;
135 And thus will they keep us in ignorance if we will yield ourselves unto them all the days of our lives."
136 And many more things did the people imagine up in their hearts which were foolish and vain;
137 And they were much disturbed, for Satan did stir them up to do iniquity continually; Yea, he did go about spreading rumors and contentions upon all the face of the land, That he might harden the hearts of the people against that which was good and against that which should come;
138 And notwithstanding the signs and the wonders which were wrought among the people of the Lord, and the many miracles which they did, Satan did get great hold upon the hearts of the people upon all the face of the land.
139 And thus ended the ninetieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
140 And thus ended the book of Helaman, according to the record of Helaman and his sons.
3 Nephi 1
Intro The Son of Nephi Which was the Son of Helaman And Helaman was the son of Helaman, which was the son of Alma which was the son of Alma, Being a descendant of Nephi which was the son of Lehi, which came out of Jerusalem in the first year of the reign of Zedekiah, the king of Judah.
1 Now it came to pass that the ninety and first year had passed away, And it was six hundred years from the time that Lehi left Jerusalem; And it was in the year that Lachoneus was the chief judge and the governor over the land;
2 And Nephi, the son of Helaman, had departed out of the Land of Zarahemla, giving charge unto his son Nephi, which was his eldest son, concerning the plates of brass and all the records which had been kept, And all those things which had been kept sacred from the departure of Lehi out of Jerusalem;
3 Then he departed out of the land and whither he went no man knoweth; And his son Nephi did keep the record in his stead, yea, the record of this people.
4 And it came to pass that in the commencement of the ninety and second year, Behold, the prophecies of the prophets began to be fulfilled more fully; For there began to be greater signs and greater miracles wrought among the people.
5 But there were some which began to say that the time was past for the words to be fulfilled which were spoken by Samuel the Lamanite;
6 And they began to rejoice over their brethren, saying: "Behold, the time is past and the words of Samuel are not fulfilled; Therefore, your joy and your faith concerning this thing hath been vain."
7 And it came to pass that they did make a great uproar throughout the land; And the people which believed began to be very sorrowful, lest by any means those things which had been spoken might not come to pass;
8 But behold, they did watch steadfastly for that day and that night and that day-which should be as one day as if there were no night-that they might know that their faith had not been vain.
9 Now it came to pass that there was a day set apart by the unbelievers that all those who believed in those traditions should be put to death, except the sign should come to pass which had been given by Samuel the prophet.
10 Now it came to pass that when Nephi, the son of Nephi, saw this wickedness of his people, his heart was exceeding sorrowful.
11 And it came to pass that he went out and bowed himself down upon the earth and cried mightily to his God in behalf of his people, yea, those which were about to be destroyed because of their faith in the tradition of their fathers.
12 And it came to pass that he cried mightily unto the Lord all that day; And behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: "Lift up your head and be of good cheer, for behold, the time is at hand; And on this night shall the sign be given,
