Passage: 1 Nephi 1:111 - 1 Nephi 1:121

111 But I said in my heart, Never at any time have I shed the blood of man, and I shrunk and would that I might not slay him.
112 And the Spirit said unto me again, Behold the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands; yea, and I also knew that he had sought to take away mine own life; yea, and he would not hearken unto the commandments of the Lord; and he also had taken away our property.
113 And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again, Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands.
114 Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes.
115 It is better that one man should perish, than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief.
116 And now, when I, Nephi, had heard these words, I remembered the words of the Lord which he spake unto me in the wilderness, saying, That inasmuch as thy seed shall keep my commandments, they shall prosper in the land of promise.
117 Yea, and I also thought that they could not keep the commandments of the Lord according to the law of Moses, save they should have the law.
118 And I also knew that the law was engraven upon the plates of brass.
119 And again, I knew that the Lord had delivered Laban into my hands for this cause, that I might obtain the records according to his commandments.
120 Therefore I did obey the voice of the Spirit, and took Laban by the hair of the head, and I smote off his head with his own sword.
121 And after I had smitten off his head with his own sword, I took the garments of Laban and put them upon mine own body; yea, even every whit; and I did gird on his armor about my loins.
