Passage: 1 Nephi 5:210 - 1 Nephi 5:230

210 And it came to pass that I prayed unto the Lord; And after that I had prayed, the winds did cease and the storm did cease, And there was a great calm.
211 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did guide the ship, that we sailed again toward the Promised Land.
212 And it came to pass that after we had sailed for the space of many days, we did arrive to the Promised Land;
213 And we went forth upon the land and did pitch our tents, And we did call it the Promised Land.
214 And it came to pass that we did begin to till the earth and we began to plant seeds, Yea, we did put all our seeds into the earth which we had brought from the Land of Jerusalem.
215 And it came to pass that they did grow exceedingly; Wherefore, we were blessed in abundance.
216 And it came to pass that we did find upon the Land of Promise, as we journeyed in the wilderness, That there were beasts in the forests of every kind- both the cow and the ox, and the ass and the horse, and the goat and the wild goat, And all manner of wild animals which were for the use of men;
217 And we did find all manner of ore- both of gold, and of silver, and of copper.
218 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded me, wherefore I did make plates of ore, that I might engraven upon them the record of my people;
219 And upon the plates which I made I did engraven the record of my father, and also our journeyings in the wilderness and the prophecies of my father; And also many of mine own prophecies have I engraven upon them.
220 And I knew not at that time when I made them that I should be commanded of the Lord to make these plates;
221 Wherefore, the record of my father and the genealogy of his forefathers and the more part of all our proceedings in the wilderness are engraven upon those first plates of which I have spoken;
222 Wherefore, the things which transpired before that I made these plates are, of a truth, more particularly made mention upon the first plates.
223 And after that I made these plates by way of commandment, I, Nephi, received a commandment that the ministry and the prophecies- the more plain and precious parts of them- should be written upon these plates;
224 And that the things which were written should be kept for the instruction of my people which should possess the land, And also for other wise purposes, which purposes are known unto the Lord.
225 Wherefore, I, Nephi, did make a record upon the other plates which gives an account, or which gives a greater account, of the wars and contentions and destructions of my people;
226 And now this have I done and commanded my people that they should do after that I was gone, And that these plates should be handed down from one generation to another, or from one prophet to another, until further commandments of the Lord.
227 And an account of my making these plates shall be given hereafter;
228 And then behold, I proceed according to that which I have spoken; And this I do that the more sacred things may be kept for the knowledge of my people.
229 Nevertheless, I do not write anything upon plates save it be that I think it be sacred;
230 And now if I do err, even did they err of old-

"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.
