Passage: Alma 1:105 - Alma 1:115

105 And their brethren sought to destroy them; therefore they were cursed; and the Lord God set a mark upon them, yea, upon Laman and Lemuel, and also the sons of Ishmael, and the Ishmaelitish women;
106 And this was done, that their seed might be distinguished from the seed of their brethren, that thereby the Lord God might preserve his people, that they might not mix and believe in incorrect traditions which would prove their destruction.
107 And it came to pass that whosoever did mingle his seed with that of the Lamanites, did bring the same curse upon his seed.
108 Therefore whosoever suffered himself to be led away by the Lamanites, was called under that head, and there was a mark set upon him.
109 And it came to pass that whosoever would not believe in the tradition of the Lamanites, but believe those records which were brought out of the land of Jerusalem, and also in the tradition of their fathers, which were correct, who believed in the commandments of God, and kept them, were called the Nephites, or the people of Nephi, from that time forth;
110 And it is they who have kept the records which are true of their people, and also of the people of the Lamanites.
111 Now we will return again to the Amlicites, for they also had a mark set upon them; yea, they set the mark upon themselves, yea, even a mark of red upon their foreheads.
112 Thus the word of God is fulfilled, for these are the words which he said to Nephi:
113 Behold, the Lamanites have I cursed; and I will set a mark upon them, that they and their seed may be separated from thee and thy seed, from this time henceforth and for ever, except they repent of their wickedness and turn to me, that I may have mercy upon them.
114 And again: I will set a mark upon him that mingleth his seed with thy brethren, that they may be cursed also.
115 And again: I will set a mark upon him that fighteth against thee and thy seed.
