Passage: 1 Nephi 1:87 - 1 Nephi 1:107

87 And it came to pass that we went in unto Laban and desired him that he would give unto us the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, For which we would give unto him our gold and our silver and all our precious things.
88 And it came to pass that when Laban saw our property, that it was exceeding great, He did lust after it insomuch that he thrust us out and sent his servants to slay us, that he might obtain our property.
89 And it came to pass that we did flee before the servants of Laban, And we were obliged to leave behind our property and it fell into the hands of Laban.
90 And it came to pass that we fled into the wilderness and the servants of Laban did not overtake us; And we hid ourselves in the cavity of a rock.
91 And it came to pass that Laman was angry with me, and also with my father; And also was Lemuel, for he hearkened unto the words of Laman;
92 Wherefore, Laman and Lemuel did speak many hard words unto us, their younger brothers, And they did smite us, even with a rod.
93 And it came to pass as they smote us with a rod, behold, an angel of the Lord came and stood before them and he spake unto them, saying: "Why do ye smite your younger brother with a rod?
94 Know ye not that the Lord hath chosen him to be a ruler over you, and this because of your iniquities?
95 Behold, thou shalt go up to Jerusalem again and the Lord will deliver Laban into your hands."
96 And after that the angel had spake unto us, he departed;
97 And after that the angel had departed, Laman and Lemuel again began to murmur, saying: "How is it possible that the Lord will deliver Laban into our hands?
98 Behold, he is a mighty man and he can command fifty, yea, even he can slay fifty; Then why not us?"
99 And it came to pass that I spake unto my brethren, saying: "Let us go up again unto Jerusalem and let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord, For behold, He is mightier than all the earth; Then why not mightier than Laban and his fifty, yea, or even than his tens of thousands?
100 "Therefore, let us go up; Let us be strong like unto Moses, For he truly spake unto the waters of the Red Sea and they divided hither and thither and our fathers came through out of captivity on dry ground, And the armies of Pharaoh did follow and were drowned in the waters of the Red Sea.
101 "Now behold, ye know that this is true; And ye also know that an angel hath spoken unto you; Wherefore, can ye doubt?
102 "Let us go up; The Lord is able to deliver us, even as our fathers, And to destroy Laban, even as the Egyptians."
103 Now when I had spoken these words, they were yet wroth and did still continue to murmur; Nevertheless, they did follow me up until we came without the walls of Jerusalem;
104 And it was by night; And I caused that they should hide themselves without the wall;
105 And after that they had hid themselves, I, Nephi, crept into the city and went forth toward the house of Laban;
106 And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do.
107 Nevertheless, I went forth; And as I came near unto the house of Laban, I beheld a man, And he had fallen to the earth before me, for he was drunken with wine;
