Passage: 2 Nephi 12:26 - 2 Nephi 12:46
26 And thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.
27 And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them, I am no devil, for there is none:
28 And thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance.
29 Yea, they are grasped with death and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith, must stand before the throne of God and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.
30 Therefore, wo be unto him that is at ease in Zion.
31 Wo be unto him that crieth, All is well; yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost.
32 Yea, wo be unto him that saith, We have received, and we need no more.
33 And in fine, wo unto all those who tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God.
34 For behold, he that is built upon the rock, receiveth it with gladness: and he that is built upon a sandy foundation, trembleth, lest he shall fall.
35 Wo be unto him that shall say, We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough.
36 For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little:
37 And blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom;
38 For unto him that receiveth, I will give more: and from them that shall say, We have enough, shall be taken away even that which they have.
39 Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, or maketh flesh his arm, or shall hearken unto the precepts of men, save their precepts shall be given by the power of the Holy Ghost.
40 Wo be unto the Gentiles, saith the Lord God of hosts; for notwithstanding I shall lengthen out mine arm unto them from day to day, they will deny me;
41 Nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, saith the Lord God, if they will repent and come unto me; for mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, saith the Lord God of hosts.
42 But behold, there shall be many at that day, when I shall proceed to do a marvelous work among them, that I may remember my covenants which I have made unto the children of men, that I may set my hand again the second time to recover my people, which are the house of Israel;
43 And also, that I may remember the promises which I have made unto thee, Nephi, and also unto thy father, that I would remember your seed; and that the words of your seed should proceed forth out of my mouth unto your seed.
44 And my words shall hiss forth unto the ends of the earth, for a standard unto my people, which are of the house of Israel.
45 And because my words shall hiss forth, many of the Gentiles shall say, A bible, a bible, we have got a bible, and there can not be any more bible.
46 But thus saith the Lord God: O fools, they shall have a bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people.
