89 And now behold, who can stand against the works of the Lord? Who can deny His sayings? 90 Who will rise up against the almighty power of the Lord? Who will despise the works of the Lord? Who will despise the children of Christ? 91 Behold, all ye that are despisers of the works of the Lord- for ye shall wonder and perish- 92 O then despise not and wonder not, but hearken unto the words of the Lord, And ask the Father in the name of Jesus for what things soever ye shall stand in need- 93 Doubt not, but be believing, And begin as in times of old, And come unto the Lord with all your heart, And work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before Him. 94 Be wise in the days of your probation; Strip yourselves of all uncleanness; Ask not that ye may consume it on your lusts; But ask with a firmness unshaken, that ye will yield to no temptation, But that ye will serve the true and living God. 95 See that ye are not baptized unworthily; See that ye partake not of the sacrament of Christ unworthily; But see that ye do all things in worthiness, And do it in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; And if ye do this and endure to the end, ye will in no wise be cast out. 96 Behold, I speak unto you as though I spake from the dead, for I know that ye shall have my words; 97 Condemn me not because of mine imperfection, neither my father because of his imperfection, neither them which have written before him; But rather give thanks unto God that He hath made manifest unto you our imperfections, That ye may learn to be more wise than that which we have been. 98 And now behold, we have written this record according to our knowledge in the characters which are called among us the reformed Egyptian, Being handed down and altered by us according to our manner of speech; 99 And if our plates had been sufficiently large, we should have written in the Hebrew, But the Hebrew hath been altered by us also; And if we could have written in the Hebrew, Behold, ye would have had no imperfection in our record. 100 But the Lord knoweth the things which we have written, And also that none other people knoweth our language; And because that none other people knoweth our language, Therefore, He hath prepared means for the interpretation thereof. 101 And these things are written that we may rid our garments of the blood of our brethren which have dwindled in unbelief. 102 And behold, these things which we have desired concerning our brethren-yea, even their restoration to the knowledge of Christ-is according to the prayers of all the saints which have dwelt in the land. 103 And may the Lord Jesus Christ grant that their prayers may be answered according to their faith; And may God the Father remember the covenant which He hath made with the house of Israel; And may He bless them forever, through faith on the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Ether 1 1 And now I, Moroni, proceed to give an account of those ancient inhabitants which were destroyed by the hand of the Lord upon the face of this North Country, 2 And I take mine account from the twenty and four plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the book of Ether; 3 And as I suppose that the first part of this record which speaketh concerning the creation of the world, and also of Adam- And an account from that time, even to the Great Tower, And whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time-is had among the Jews, 4 Therefore, I do not write those things which transpired from the days of Adam until that time, But they are had upon the plates; And whoso findeth them, the same will have power that he may get the full account. 5 But behold, I give not the full account, But a part of the account I give from the Tower down until they were destroyed; And on this wise do I give the account. 6 He that wrote this account was Ether, And he was a descendant of Coriantor; And Coriantor was the son of Moron; And Moron was the son of Ethem; And Ethem was the son of Ahah; And Ahah was the son of Seth; And Seth was the son of Shiblon; And Shiblon was the son of Com; And Com was the son of Coriantum; And Coriantum was the son of Amnigaddah; And Amnigaddah was the son of Aaron; And Aaron was a descendant of Heth, who was the son of Hearthom; And Hearthom was the son of Lib; And Lib was the son of Kish; And Kish was the son of Corom; And Corom was the son of Levi; And Levi was the son of Kim; And Kim was the son of Morianton; And Morianton was a descendant of Riplakish; And Riplakish was the son of Shez; And Shez was the son of Heth; And Heth was the son of Com; And Com was the son of Coriantum; And Coriantum was the son of Emer; And Emer was the son of Omer; And Omer was the son of Shule; And Shule was the son of Kib; And Kib was the son of Orihah, which was the son of Jared;

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
