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." 23 And Emer did execute judgment in righteousness all his days, And he begat many sons and daughters; And he begat Coriantum, And he anointed Coriantum to reign in his stead; 24 And after that he had anointed Coriantum to reign in his stead, he lived four years and he saw peace in the land, Yea, and he even saw the Son of Righteousness and did rejoice and glory in His day; And he died in peace. 25 And it came to pass that Coriantum did walk in the steps of his father, And did build many mighty cities, And did administer that which was good unto his people in all his days. 26 And it came to pass that he had no children, even until he was exceeding old. 27 And it came to pass that his wife died, being an hundred and two years old. 28 And it came to pass that Coriantum took to wife in his old age a young maid and begat sons and daughters; Wherefore, he lived until he was an hundred and forty and two years old. 29 And it came to pass that he begat Com, And Com reigned in his stead; And he reigned forty and nine years and he begat Heth, And he also begat other sons and daughters; 30 And the people had spread again over all the face of the land, And there began again to be an exceeding great wickedness upon the face of the land; And Heth began to embrace the secret plans again of old to destroy his father. 31 And it came to pass that he did dethrone his father, For he slew him with his own sword; And he did reign in his stead. 32 And there came prophets in the land again, crying repentance unto them, That they must prepare the way of the Lord, or there should come a curse upon the face of the land, Yea, even there should be a great famine, in the which they should be destroyed if they did not repent; 33 But the people believed not the words of the prophets, but they cast them out, And some of them they cast into pits and left them to perish. 34 And it came to pass that they did all these things according to the commandment of the King Heth. 35 And it came to pass that there began to be a great dearth upon the land, And the inhabitants began to be destroyed exceeding fast, because of the dearth, For there was no rain upon the face of the earth; And there came forth poisonous serpents also upon the face of the land and did poison many people. 36 And it came to pass that their flocks began to flee before the poisonous serpents toward the Land Southward, which was called by the Nephites Zarahemla. 37 And it came to pass that there were many of them which did perish by the way; Nevertheless, there were some which fled into the Land Southward. 38 And it came to pass that the Lord did cause the serpents that they should pursue them no more, But that they should hedge up the way that the people could not pass, That whoso should attempt to pass might fall by the poisonous serpents. 39 And it came to pass that the people did follow the course of the beasts and did devour the carcasses of them which fell by the way, until they had devoured them all; 40 Now when the people saw that they must perish, they began to repent of their iniquities and cry unto the Lord.
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
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.
