Passage: Ether 4:2 - Ether 4:22
2 Therefore, behold, it came to pass that because of the secret combinations of Akish and his friends, Behold, they did overthrow the kingdom of Omer; Nevertheless, the Lord was merciful unto Omer, and also to his sons and to his daughters which were not or which did not seek his destruction;
3 And the Lord warned Omer in a dream that he should depart out of the land. Wherefore, Omer departed out of the land with his family and traveled many days, And came over and passed by the Hill of Shim,
4 And came over by the place where the Nephites were destroyed, and from thence eastward, And came to a place which was called Ablom, by the seashore, And there he pitched his tent, And also his sons and his daughters and all his household, save it were Jared and his family.
5 And it came to pass that Jared was anointed king over the people by the hand of wickedness; And he gave unto Akish his daughter to wife.
6 And it came to pass that Akish sought the life of his father-in-law, And he appealed unto those whom he had sworn by the oath of the ancients, And they obtained the head of his father-in-law as he sat upon his throne giving audience to his people;
7 For so great had been the spreading of this wicked and secret society that it had corrupted the hearts of all the people; Therefore, Jared was murdered upon his throne, And Akish reigned in his stead.
8 And it came to pass that Akish began to be jealous of his son; Therefore, he shut him up in prison and kept him upon a little or no food until he had suffered death.
9 And now the brother of him that suffered death-and his name was Nimrah-was angry with his father because of that which his father had done unto his brother.
10 And it came to pass that Nimrah gathered together a small number of men and fled out of the land and came over and dwelt with Omer.
11 And it came to pass that Akish begat other sons, And they won the hearts of the people, notwithstanding they had sworn unto him to do all manner of iniquity according to that which he desired.
12 Now the people of Akish were desirous for gain, even as Akish was desirous for power; Wherefore, the sons of Akish did offer them money, by the which means they drew away the more part of the people after them;
13 And there began to be a war between the sons of Akish and Akish, which lasted for the space of many years, Yea, unto the destruction of nearly all the people of the kingdom,
14 Yea, even all, save it were thirty souls and they which fled with the house of Omer; Wherefore, Omer was restored again to the land of his inheritance.
15 And it came to pass that Omer began to be old; Nevertheless, in his old age he begat Emer, And he anointed Emer to be king to reign in his stead;
16 And after that he had anointed Emer to be king, he saw peace in the land for the space of two years, And he died having seen exceeding many days which were full of sorrow.
17 And it came to pass that Emer did reign in his stead and did fill the steps of his father;
18 And the Lord began again to take the curse from off the land, And the house of Emer did prosper exceedingly under the reign of Emer;
19 And in the space of sixty and two years, they had become exceeding strong, insomuch that they became exceeding rich, Having all manner of fruit and of grain, and of silks and of fine linen, and of gold and of silver and of precious things;
20 And also all manner of cattle, of oxen and cows, and of sheep and of swine and of goats, and also many other kind of animals which were useful for the food of man;
21 And they also had horses and asses, And there were elephants and cureloms and cumoms- All of which were useful unto man, and more especially the elephants and cureloms and cumoms.
22 And thus the Lord did pour out His blessings upon this land, which was choice above all other lands; And He commanded that whoso should possess the land should possess it unto the Lord or they should be destroyed when they were ripened in iniquity; "For upon such," saith the Lord, "I will pour out the fullness of My wrath."
