Passage: 3 Nephi 4:18 - 3 Nephi 4:38

18 And it came to pass that there was thick darkness upon the face of all the land, insomuch that the inhabitants thereof which had not fallen could feel the vapor of darkness;
19 And there could be no light because of the darkness, neither candles, neither torches; Neither could there be fire kindled with their fine and exceeding dry wood, so that there could not be any light at all;
20 And there was not any light seen, neither fire, nor glimmer, neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars, For so great were the mists of darkness which were upon the face of the land.
21 And it came to pass that it did last for the space of three days, that there was no light seen; And there was great mourning and howling and weeping among all the people continually;
22 Yea, great were the groanings of the people because of the darkness and the great destruction which had come upon them.
23 And in one place they were heard to cry, saying: "O that we had repented before this great and terrible day! And then would our brethren have been spared, And they would not have been burned in that great City Zarahemla."
24 And in another place they were heard to cry and mourn, saying: "O that we had repented before this great and terrible day and had not killed and stoned the prophets and cast them out!
25 Then would our mothers and our fair daughters and our children have been spared and not have been buried up in that great City Moronihah." And thus were the howlings of the people great and terrible.
26 And it came to pass that there was a voice heard among all the inhabitants of the earth upon all the face of this land, crying: "Wo! Wo! Wo unto this people! Wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth, except they shall repent!
27 For the devil laugheth and his angels rejoice because of the slain of the fair sons and daughters of My people; And it is because of their iniquity and their abominations that they are fallen.
28 "Behold, that great City Zarahemla have I burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof.
29 "And behold, that great City Moroni have I caused to be sunk in the depths of the sea, And the inhabitants thereof to be drowned.
30 "And behold, that great City Moronihah have I covered with earth, And the inhabitants thereof to hide their iniquities and their abominations from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and of the saints should not come up anymore unto Me against them.
31 "And behold, the City of Gilgal have I caused to be sunk, And the inhabitants thereof to be buried up in the depths of the earth;
32 Yea, and the City of Onihah, and the inhabitants thereof, And the City of Mocum, and the inhabitants thereof, And the City of Jerusalem, and the inhabitants thereof- And waters have I caused to come up in the stead thereof,
33 To hide their wickedness and their abominations from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up anymore unto Me against them.
34 "And behold, the City of Gadiandi, and the City of Gadiomnah, and the City of Jacob, and the City of Gimgimno- All these have I caused to be sunk and made hills and valleys in the places thereof,
35 And the inhabitants thereof have I buried up in the depths of the earth to hide their wickedness and abominations from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up anymore unto Me against them.
36 "And behold, that great City Jacob-Ugath, which was inhabited by the people of King Jacob, have I caused to be burned with fire because of their sins and their wickedness, Which was above all the wickedness of the whole earth because of their secret murders and combinations;
37 For it was they that did destroy the peace of My people and the government of the land; Therefore, I did cause them to be burned to destroy them from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up unto Me anymore against them.
38 "And behold, the City of Laman and the City of Josh and the City of Gad and the City of Kishcumen have I caused to be burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof, Because of their wickedness in casting out the prophets and stoning them which I did send to declare unto them concerning their wickedness and their abominations;
