41 And behold, I have seen in the days of King Benjamin, a serious war, and much bloodshed, between the Nephites and the Lamanites.

42 But behold, the Nephites did obtain much advantage over them; yea, insomuch that King Benjamin did drive them out of the land of Zarahemla.

43 And it came to pass that I began to be old; and, having no seed, and knowing King Benjamin to be a just man before the Lord, wherefore, I shall deliver up these plates unto him, exhorting all men to come unto God, the Holy One of Israel,

44 And believe in prophesying, and in revelations, and in the ministering of angels, and in the gift of speaking with tongues, and in the gift of interpreting languages, and in all things which are good:

45 For there is nothing which is good, save it comes from the Lord; and that which is evil, cometh from the devil.

46 And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption.

47 Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth, ye will be saved.

48 And now, I would speak somewhat concerning a certain number who went up into the wilderness, to return to the land of Nephi:

49 For there was a large number who were desirous to possess the land of their inheritance; wherefore, they went up into the wilderness.

50 And their leader being a strong and a mighty man, and a stiff- necked man, wherefore he caused a contention among them; and they were all slain, save fifty, in the wilderness, and they returned again to the land of Zarahemla.

51 And it came to pass that they also took others, to a considerable number, and took their journey again into the wilderness.
