124 And not choose eternal death, according to the will of the flesh and the evil which is therein,
125 Which giveth the spirit of the devil power to captivate, to bring you down to hell, that he may reign over you in his own kingdom.
126 I have spoken these few words unto you all, my sons, in the last days of my probation;
127 And I have chosen the good part, according to the words of the prophet.
128 And I have none other object, save it be the everlasting welfare of your souls. Amen.
2 Nephi 2 1 And now I speak unto you, Joseph, my last born.
2 Thou wast born in the wilderness of mine afflictions; yea, in the days of my greatest sorrow did thy mother bear thee.
3 And may the Lord consecrate also unto thee this land, which is a most precious land, for thine inheritance and the inheritance of thy seed with thy brethren, for thy security for ever, if it so be that ye shall keep the commandments of the Holy One of Israel.
4 And now, Joseph, my last born, whom I have brought out of the wilderness of mine afflictions, may the Lord bless thee for ever, for thy seed shall not utterly be destroyed.
5 For behold, thou art the fruit of my loins; and I am a descendant of Joseph, who was carried captive into Egypt.
6 And great were the covenants of the Lord, which he made unto Joseph; wherefore, Joseph truly saw our day.
