Passage: Ether 1:34 - Ether 1:54

34 And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God, That ye may repent and not continue in your iniquities until the fullness be come, That ye may not bring down the fullness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land hath hitherto done.
35 Behold, this is a choice land; And whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage and from captivity and from all other nations under heaven, If they will but serve the God of the land which is Jesus Christ, which hath been manifested by the things which we have written.
36 And now I proceed with my record. For behold, it came to pass that the Lord did bring Jared and his brethren forth, even to that great sea which divideth the lands;
37 And as they came to the sea, they pitched their tents, And they called the name of the place Moriancumer, And they dwelt in tents, And dwelt in tents upon the seashore for the space of four years.
38 And it came to pass at the end of the four years that the Lord came again unto the brother of Jared and stood in a cloud and talked with him;
39 And for the space of three hours did the Lord talk with the brother of Jared and chastened him because he remembered not to call upon the name of the Lord.
40 And the brother of Jared repented him of the evil which he had done and did call upon the name of the Lord for his brethren which were with him.
41 And the Lord said unto him: "I will forgive thee and thy brethren of their sins, But thou shalt not sin anymore, for ye shall remember that My Spirit will not always strive with man; Wherefore, if ye will sin until ye are fully ripe, ye shall be cut off from the presence of the Lord;
42 And these are My thoughts upon the land which I shall give you for your inheritance, For it shall be a land choice above all other lands."
43 And the Lord said: "Go to work and build after the manner of barges which ye have hitherto built."
44 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared did go to work, and also his brethren, and built barges after the manner which they had built, according to the instructions of the Lord;
45 And they were small and they were light upon the water, even like unto the lightness of a fowl upon the water, And they were built after a manner that they were exceeding tight, even that they would hold water like unto a dish;
46 And the bottom thereof was tight like unto a dish, And the sides thereof were tight like unto a dish, And the ends thereof were peaked, And the top thereof was tight like unto a dish, And the length thereof was the length of a tree, And the door thereof, when it was shut, was tight like unto a dish.
47 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared cried unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, I have performed the work which Thou hast commanded me, And I have made the barges according as Thou hast directed me;
48 And behold, O Lord, in them there is no light; Whither shall we steer?
49 And also we shall perish, for in them we cannot breathe, save it is the air which is in them; Therefore, we shall perish."
50 And the Lord said unto the brother of Jared: "Behold, thou shalt make a hole in the top thereof, and also in the bottom thereof, And when thou shalt suffer for air, thou shalt unstop the hole thereof and receive air;
51 And if it so be that the water come in upon thee, Behold, ye shall stop the hole thereof, that ye may not perish in the flood."
52 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared did so, according as the Lord had commanded.
53 And he cried again unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, behold, I have done even as Thou hast commanded me, And I have prepared the vessels for my people, And behold, there is no light in them;
54 Behold, O Lord, wilt Thou suffer that we shall cross this great water in darkness?"
