Passage: 3 Nephi 3:35 - 3 Nephi 3:45

35 And they did set at defiance the law and the rights of their country; and they did covenant, one with another, to destroy the governor, and to establish a king over the land, that the land should no more be at liberty, but should be subject unto kings.
36 Now behold, I will shew unto you that they did not establish a king over the land; but in this same year, yea, the thirtieth year, they did destroy upon the judgment seat, yea, did murder the chief judge of the land.
37 And the people were divided one against another; and they did separate one from another, into tribes, every man according to his family, and his kindred and friends; and thus they did destroy the government of the land.
38 And every tribe did appoint a chief, or a leader over them; and thus they became tribes, and leaders of tribes.
39 Now behold, there was no man among them, save he had much family and many kindreds and friends; therefore their tribes became exceeding great.
40 Now all this was done and there were no wars as yet among them: and all this iniquity had come upon the people, because they did yield themselves unto the power of Satan;
41 And the regulations of the government were destroyed, because of the secret combination of the friends and kindreds of those who murdered the prophets.
42 And they did cause a great contention in the land, insomuch that the more righteous part of the people, although they had nearly all become wicked; yea, there were but few righteous men among them.
43 And thus six years had not passed away, since the more part of the people had turned from their righteousness, like the dog to his vomit, or like the sow to her wallowing in the mire.
44 Now this secret combination which had brought so great iniquity upon the people, did gather themselves together, and did place at their head a man whom they did call Jacob; and they did call him their king;
45 Therefore he became a king over this wicked band; and he was one of the chiefest who had given his voice against the prophets who testified of Jesus.
