TEXT
THE FIRST BOOK OF NEPHI (This text is from the summaries preceding each individual chapter, chapters 1-22)
1Nephi begins the record of his peopleLehi sees
in vision a pillar of fire and reads from a book of
prophecyHe praises God, foretells the coming of
the Messiah, and prophesies the destruction of
JerusalemHe is persecuted by the Jews.2 Lehi
takes his family into the wilderness by the Red
SeaThey leave their propertyLehi offers a
sacrifice to the Lord and teaches his sons to keep
the commandmentsLaman and Lemuel murmur
against their fatherNephi is obedient and prays
in faith; the Lord speaks to him, and he is chosen
to rule over his brethren.3 Lehi's sons return to
Jerusalem to obtain the plates of brassLaban
refuses to give them upNephi exhorts and
encourages his brethrenLaban steals their
property and attempts to slay themLaman and
Lemuel smite Nephi and are reproved by an angel.
4Nephi slays Laban at the Lord's command and
then secures the plates of brass by stratagem
Zoram chooses to join Lehi's family in the
wilderness.5 Sariah complains against LehiBoth
rejoice over the return of their sonsThey offer
sacrificesThe plates of brass contain writings of
Moses and the prophetsThey identify Lehi as a
descendant of JosephLehi prophesies concerning
his seed and the preservation of the plates.
6Nephi writes of the things of GodHis purpose is
to persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham
and be saved.7 Lehi's sons return to Jerusalem
and enlist Ishmael and his household in their
causeLaman and others rebelNephi exhorts his
brethren to have faith in the LordThey bind him
with cords and plan his destructionHe is freed by
the power of faithHis brethren ask forgiveness
Lehi and his company offer sacrifice and burnt
offerings.8 Lehi sees a vision of the tree of life
He partakes of its fruit and desires his family to do
likewiseHe sees a rod of iron, a strait and
narrow path, and the mists of darkness that
enshroud menSariah, Nephi, and Sam partake of
the fruit, but Laman and Lemuel refuse..
9Nephi makes two sets of recordsEach is called
the plates of NephiThe larger plates contain a
secular history; the smaller ones deal primarily
with sacred things.1 0 Lehi predicts the Babylonian
captivityHe tells of the coming among the Jews
of a Messiah, a Savior, a RedeemerHe tells also
of the coming of the one who should baptize the
Lamb of GodLehi tells of the death and
resurrection of the MessiahHe compares the
scattering and gathering of Israel to an olive tree
Nephi speaks of the Son of God, of the gift of the
Holy Ghost, and of the need for righteousness.11
Nephi sees the Spirit of the Lord and is shown in
vision the tree of lifeHe sees the mother of the
Son of God and learns of the condescension of
GodHe sees the baptism, ministry, and
crucifixion of the Lamb of GodHe sees also the
call and ministry of the twelve apostles of the
Lamb.1 2 Nephi sees in vision: the land of promise;
the righteousness, iniquity, and downfall of its
inhabitants; the coming of the Lamb of God among
them; how the twelve disciples and the twelve
apostles shall judge Israel; the loathsome and
filthy state of those who dwindle in unbelief.1 3
Nephi sees in vision: the church of the devil set up
among the Gentiles; the discovery and colonizing
of America; the loss of many plain and precious
parts of the Bible; the resultant state of gentile
apostasy; the restoration of the gospel, the coming
forth of Latter-day scripture, and the building up of
Zion.1 4 An angel tells Nephi of the blessings and
cursings to fall upon the GentilesThere are only
two churches: the Church of the Lamb of God and
the church of the devilThe saints of God in all
nations are persecuted by the great and
abominable churchThe apostle John shall write
concerning the end of the world.1 5 Lehi's seed are
to receive the gospel from the Gentiles in the latter
daysThe gathering of Israel is likened unto an
olive tree whose natural branches shall be grafted
in againNephi interprets the vision of the tree of
life and speaks of the justice of God in dividing the
wicked from the righteous.1 6 The wicked take the
truth to be hardLehi's sons marry the daughters
of IshmaelThe Liahona guides their course in the
wildernessMessages from the Lord are written
on the Liahona from time to timeIshmael dies;
his family murmur because of afflictions.1 7 Nephi
is commanded to build a shipHis brethren
oppose himHe exhorts them by recounting the
history of God's dealings with IsraelHe is filled
with the power of GodHis brethren are forbidden
to touch him, lest they whither as a dried reed.1 8
The ship is finishedThe births of Jacob and
Joseph are mentionedThe company embarks for
the promised landThe sons of Ishmael and their
wives join in revelry and rebellionNephi is
bound, and the ship is driven back by a terrible
tempestNephi is freed, and by his prayer the
storm ceasesThey arrive in the promised land.1 9
Nephi makes plates of ore and records the history
of his peopleThe God of Israel shall come six
hundred years from the time Lehi left Jerusalem
Nephi tells of His sufferings and crucifixionThe
Jews shall be despised and scattered until the latter
days, when they shall return unto the Lord. About
20 The Lord reveals his purposes to IsraelThey
have been chosen in the furnace of affliction and
are to go forth from BabylonCompare Isaiah
48.21 Messiah shall be a light to the Gentiles and
shall free the prisonersIsrael shall be gathered
with power in the last daysKings shall be their
nursing fathersCompare Isaiah 49.2 2 Israel
shall be scattered upon all the face of the earth
The gentiles shall nurse and nourish Israel with the
gospel in the last daysIsrael shall be gathered
and saved, and the wicked shall burn as stubble
The kingdom of the devil shall be destroyed, and
Satan shall be bound. About
