2 Nephi 1
1 And now it came to pass after I, Nephi, had made an end of teaching my brethren, our father, Lehi, also spake many things unto them, how great things the Lord had done for them, in bringing them out of the land of Jerusalem.

2 And he spake unto them concerning their rebellions upon the waters, and the mercies of God in sparing their lives, that they were not swallowed up in the sea.

3 And he also spake unto them concerning the land of promise which they had obtained, how merciful the Lord had been in warning us that we should flee out of the land of Jerusalem.

4 For, behold, said he, I have seen a vision, in which I know that Jerusalem is destroyed;

5 And had we remained in Jerusalem, we should also have perished.

6 But, said he, notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a land of promise, a land which is choice above all other lands;

7 A land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the inheritance of my seed.

8 Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me, and to my children for ever;

9 And also all those who should be led out of other countries, by the hand of the Lord.

10 Wherefore, I, Lehi, prophesy according to the workings of the Spirit which is in me, that there shall none come into this land, save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord.

11 Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom he shall bring.
