Passage: 4 Nephi 1:37 - 4 Nephi 1:47

37 And they did smite upon the people of Jesus; but the people of Jesus did not smite again.
38 And thus they did dwindle in unbelief and wickedness, from year to year, even until two hundred and thirty years had passed away.
39 And now it came to pass in this year, yea, in the two hundred and thirty and first year, there was a great division among the people.
40 And it came to pass that in this year there arose a people who were called the Nephites, and they were true believers in Christ; and among them there were those who were called by the Lamanites, Jacobites, and Josephites, and Zoramites;
41 Therefore the true believers in Christ, and the true worshippers of Christ, (among whom were the three disciples of Jesus who should tarry,) were called Nephites, and Jacobites, and Josephites, and Zoramites.
42 And it came to pass that they who rejected the gospel, were called Lamanites, and Lemuelites, and Ishmaelites; and they did not dwindle in unbelief, but they did wilfully rebel against the gospel of Christ;
43 And they did teach their children that they should not believe, even as their fathers, from the beginning, did dwindle.
44 And it was because of the wickedness and abominations of their fathers, even as it was in the beginning.
45 And they were taught to hate the children of God, even as the Lamanites were taught to hate the children of Nephi, from the beginning.
46 And it came to pass that two hundred and forty and four years had passed away, and thus were the affairs of the people.
47 And the more wicked part of the people did wax strong, and became exceeding more numerous than were the people of God.
