Passage: 1 Nephi 1:38 - 1 Nephi 1:58
38 Now this he spake because of the stiffneckedness of Laman and Lemuel; for behold they did murmur in many things against their father, because he was a visionary man, and had led them out of the land of Jerusalem, to leave the land of their inheritance, and their gold, and their silver, and their precious things, to perish in the wilderness.
39 And this they said he had done because of the foolish imaginations of his heart.
40 And thus Laman and Lemuel, being the eldest, did murmur against their father.
41 And they did murmur because they knew not the dealings of that God who had created them.
42 Neither did they believe that Jerusalem, that great city, could be destroyed according to the words of the prophets.
43 And they were like unto the Jews, who were at Jerusalem, who sought to take away the life of my father.
44 And it came to pass that my father did speak unto them in the valley of Lemuel, with power, being filled with the Spirit, until their frames did shake before him.
45 And he did confound them, that they durst not utter against him; wherefore they did as he commanded them.
46 And my father dwelt in a tent.
47 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, being exceeding young, nevertheless being large in stature, and also having great desires to know of the mysteries of God,
48 Wherefore I did cry unto the Lord; and behold he did visit me, and did soften my heart that I did believe all the words which had been spoken by my father; wherefore I did not rebel against him like unto my brothers.
49 And I spake unto Sam, making known unto him the things which the Lord had manifested unto me by his Holy Spirit.
50 And it came to pass that he believed in my words;
51 But behold Laman and Lemuel would not hearken unto my words:
52 And being grieved because of the hardness of their hearts, I cried unto the Lord for them.
53 And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto me, saying, Blessed art thou Nephi, because of thy faith, for thou hast sought me diligently, with lowliness of heart.
54 And inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall prosper, and shall be led to a land of promise; yea, even a land which I have prepared for you; yea, a land which is choice above all other lands.
55 And inasmuch as thy brethren shall rebel against thee, they shall be cut off from the presence of the Lord.
56 And inasmuch as thou shalt keep my commandments, thou shalt be made a ruler and a teacher over thy brethren.
57 For behold, in that day that they shall rebel against me, I will curse them even with a sore curse, and they shall have no power over thy seed, except they shall rebel against me also.
58 And if it so be that they rebel against me, they shall be a scourge unto thy seed, to stir them up in the ways of remembrance.
