Passage: 3 Nephi 1:24 - 3 Nephi 1:44
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;
37 And thus were the Lamanites afflicted also and began to decrease as to their faith and righteousness because of the wickedness of the rising generation.
38 And it came to pass that thus passed away the ninety and fifth year also, And the people began to forget those signs and wonders which they had heard, And began to be less and less astonished at a sign or a wonder from heaven,
39 Insomuch that they began to be hard in their hearts and blind in their minds, And began to disbelieve all which they had heard and seen, Imagining up some vain thing in their hearts, that it was wrought by men and by the power of the devil to lead away and deceive the hearts of the people;
40 And thus did Satan get possession of the hearts of the people again, Insomuch that he did blind their eyes and lead them away to believe that the doctrine of Christ was a foolish and a vain thing.
41 And it came to pass that the people began to wax strong in wickedness and abominations, And they did not believe that there should be any more signs or wonders given;
42 And Satan did go about leading away the hearts of the people, tempting them and causing them that they should do great wickedness in the land.
43 And thus did pass away the ninety and sixth year, And also the ninety and seventh year, And also the ninety and eighth year, And also the ninety and ninth year, And also an hundred years had passed away since the days of Mosiah, which was king over the people of the Nephites;
44 And six hundred and nine years had passed away since Lehi left Jerusalem; And nine years had passed away from the time which the sign was given, which was spoken of by the prophets that Christ should come into the world.
