Passage: Ether 1:58 - Ether 1:78

58 And behold, I prepare you against these things; For howbeit, ye cannot cross this great deep, save I prepare you against the waves of the sea, and the winds which have gone forth, and the floods which shall come;
59 Therefore, what will ye that I should prepare for you, that ye may have light when ye are swallowed up in the depths of the sea?"
60 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared- now the number of the vessels which had been prepared was eight- Therefore, the brother of Jared went forth unto the mount, which they called the Mount Shelem because of its exceeding height, and did molten out of a rock sixteen small stones,
61 And they were white and clear, even as transparent glass; And he did carry them in his hands upon the top of the mount and cried again unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, Thou hast said that we must be encompassed about by the floods;
62 Now behold, O Lord, and do not be angry with Thy servant because of his weakness before Thee, For we know that Thou art holy and dwellest in the heavens and that we are unworthy before Thee-
63 Because of the fall, our natures have become evil continually- Nevertheless, O Lord, Thou hast given us a commandment that we must call upon Thee, that from Thee we may receive according to our desires.
64 "Behold, O Lord, Thou hast smitten us because of our iniquity and hath driven us forth, And for this many years we have been in the wilderness; Nevertheless, Thou hast been merciful unto us.
65 "O Lord, look upon me in pity and turn away Thine anger from this Thy people, And suffer not that they shall go forth across this raging deep in darkness, But behold these things which I have molten out of the rock.
66 "And I know, O Lord, that Thou hast all power and can do whatsoever Thou wilt for the benefit of man; Therefore, touch these stones, O Lord, with Thy finger and prepare them that they may shine forth in darkness, And they shall shine forth unto us in the vessels which we have prepared, that we may have light while we shall cross the sea;
67 Behold, O Lord, Thou canst do this; We know that Thou art able to show forth great power which looks small unto the understanding of men."
68 And it came to pass that when the brother of Jared had said these words, Behold, the Lord stretched forth His hand and touched the stones one by one with His finger;
69 And the veil was taken from off the eyes of the brother of Jared and he saw the finger of the Lord, And it was as the finger of a man- like unto flesh and blood; And the brother of Jared fell down before the Lord, for he was struck with fear.
70 And the Lord saw that the brother of Jared had fallen to the earth, And the Lord said unto him: "Arise, why hast thou fallen?"
71 And he saith unto the Lord: "I saw the finger of the Lord and I feared lest He should smite me, For I knew not that the Lord had flesh and blood."
72 And the Lord said unto him: "Because of thy faith thou hast seen that I shall take upon Me flesh and blood; And never has man come before Me with such exceeding faith as thou hast; For were it not so, ye could not have seen My finger- Sawest thou more than this?"
73 And he answered: "Nay, Lord, show Thyself unto me."
74 And the Lord said unto him: "Believest thou the words which I shall speak?"
75 And he answered: "Yea, Lord, I know that Thou speakest the truth, For Thou art a God of truth and canst not lie."
76 And when he had said these words, Behold, the Lord showed Himself unto him and said: "Because thou knowest these things, ye are redeemed from the fall; Therefore, ye are brought back into My presence; Therefore, I show Myself unto you.
77 "Behold, I Am He which was prepared from the foundation of the world to redeem My people; Behold, I Am Jesus Christ, I Am the Father and the Son;
78 In Me shall all mankind have life and that eternally, even they which shall believe on My name, And they shall become My sons and My daughters;
