2 Nephi 3:1 - 2 Nephi 3:11
2 Nephi 3
1 And now I, Nephi, speak concerning the prophecies of which my father hath spoken, concerning Joseph, who was carried into Egypt:
2 For behold, he truly prophesied concerning all his seed.
3 And the prophecies which he wrote, there are not many greater.
4 And he prophesied concerning us, and our future generations;
5 And they are written upon the plates of brass.
6 Wherefore, after my father had made an end of speaking concerning the prophecies of Joseph, he called the children of Laman, his sons, and his daughters, and said unto them,
7 Behold my sons, and my daughters, who are the sons and the daughters of my first born, I would that ye should give ear unto my words:
8 For the Lord God hath said, That inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall prosper in the land;
9 And inasmuch as ye will not keep my commandments, ye shall be cut off from my presence.
10 But behold, my sons and my daughters, I can not go down to my grave, save I should leave a blessing upon you:
11 For behold, I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go, ye will not depart from it.
