243 Wherefore, the things which he shall write are just and true;
244 And behold, they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew;
245 And at the time they proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, or, at the time the book proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, the things which were written were plain and pure, and most precious and easy to the understanding of all men.
246 And behold, the things which this apostle of the Lamb shall write, are many things which thou hast seen;
247 And behold, the remainder shalt thou see;
248 But the things which thou shalt see hereafter, thou shalt not write; for the Lord God hath ordained the apostle of the Lamb of God that he should write them.
249 And also others who have been, to them hath he shown all things, and they have written them;
250 And they are sealed up to come forth in their purity according to the truth which is in the Lamb, in the own due time of the Lord, unto the house of Israel.
251 And I, Nephi, heard and bear record, that the name of the apostle of the Lamb was John, according to the word of the angel.
252 And behold, I, Nephi, am forbidden that I should write the remainder of the things which I saw and heard; wherefore, the things which I have written sufficeth me;
253 And I have not written but a small part of the things which I saw.
