Passage: 3 Nephi 1:16 - 3 Nephi 1:36
16 And it came to pass that the words which came unto Nephi were fulfilled according as they had been spoken.
17 For he beheld at the going down of the sun there was no darkness, And the people began to be astonished because there was no darkness when the night came.
18 And there were many which had not believed the words of the prophets fell to the earth and became as if they were dead, For they knew that the great plan of destruction which they had laid for those who had believed in the words of the prophets had been frustrated, for the sign which had been given was already at hand; And they began to know that the Son of God must shortly appear.
19 Yea, and in fine, all the people upon the face of the whole earth-from the west to the east, both in the Land North and in the Land South-were so exceedingly astonished that they fell to the earth,
20 For they knew that the prophets had testified of these things for many years and that the sign which had been given was already at hand; And they began to fear because of their iniquity and their unbelief.
21 And it came to pass that there was no darkness in all that night, but it was as light as though it was midday.
22 And it came to pass that the sun did rise in the morning again, according to its proper order; And they knew that it was the day that the Lord should be born because of the sign which had been given.
23 And it had come to pass, yea, all things, every whit, according to the words of the prophets.
24 And it came to pass also that a new star did appear according to the word.
25 And it came to pass from this time forth there began to be lyings sent forth among the people by Satan to harden their hearts, to the intent that they might not believe in those signs and wonders which they had seen;
26 But notwithstanding those lyings and deceivings, the more part of the people did believe and were converted unto the Lord.
27 And it came to pass that Nephi went forth among the people, and also many others, baptizing unto repent- ance in the which there were a great remission of sins.
28 And thus the people began again to have peace in the land; And there were no contentions, save it were a few that began to preach, endeavoring to prove by the scriptures that it was no more expedient to observe the law of Moses-
29 Now in this thing they did err having not understood the scriptures.
30 But it came to pass that they soon became converted and were convinced of the error which they were in, For it was made known unto them that the law was not yet fulfilled and that it must be fulfilled in every whit;
31 Yea, the word came unto them that it must be fulfilled, Yea, that one jot nor tittle should not pass away till it should all be fulfilled; Therefore, in this same year were they brought to a knowledge of their error and did confess their faults.
32 And thus the ninety and second year did pass away, bringing glad tidings unto the people because of the signs which did come to pass, according to the words of the prophecy of all the holy prophets.
33 And it came to pass that the ninety and third year did also pass away in peace, save it were for the Gaddianton robbers which did dwell upon the mountains, which did infest the land;
34 For so strong were their holds and their secret places that the people could not overpower them, Therefore, they did commit many murders and did do much slaughter among the people.
35 And it came to pass that in the ninety and fourth year they began to increase in a great degree because there were many dissenters of the Nephites which did flee unto them, which did cause much sorrow unto those Nephites which did remain in the land.
36 And there was also a cause of much sorrow among the Lamanites; For behold, they had many children which did grow up and began to wax strong in years, That they became for themselves and were led away by some which were Zoramites, by their lyings and their flattering words, to join those Gaddianton robbers;
