Passage: 1 Nephi 1:73 - 1 Nephi 1:93

73 But Laman fled out of his presence, and told the things which Laban had done, unto us.
74 And we began to be exceeding sorrowful, and my brethren were about to return unto my father in the wilderness.
75 But, behold, I said unto them, that as the Lord liveth, and as we live, we will not go down unto our father in the wilderness, until we have accomplished the thing which the Lord hath commanded us.
76 Wherefore let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord;
77 Therefore let us go down to the land of our father's inheritance, for behold he left gold and silver, and all manner of riches.
78 And all this he hath done, because of the commandments of the Lord; for he knowing that Jerusalem must be destroyed, because of the wickedness of the people.
79 For behold, they have rejected the words of the prophets.
80 Wherefore if my father should dwell in the land after he hath been commanded to flee out of the land, behold he would also perish.
81 Wherefore it must needs be that he flee out of the land.
82 And behold it is wisdom in God that we should obtain these records, that we may preserve unto our children the language of our fathers;
83 And also that we may preserve unto them the words which have been spoken by the mouth of all the holy prophets, which have been delivered unto them by the spirit and power of God, since the world began, even down unto this present time.
84 And it came to pass that after this manner of language did I persuade my brethren, that they might be faithful in keeping the commandments of God.
85 And it came to pass that we went down to the land of our inheritance, and we did gather together our gold, and our silver, and our precious things.
86 And after we had gathered these things together, we went up again unto the house of Laban.
87 And it came to pass that we went in unto Laban, and desired him that he would give unto us the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, for which we would give unto him our gold, and our silver, and all our precious things.
88 And it came to pass that when Laban saw our property, that it was exceeding great, he did lust after it, insomuch that he thrust us out, and sent his servants to slay us, that he might obtain our property.
89 And it came to pass that we did flee before the servants of Laban, and we were obliged to leave behind our property, and it fell into the hands of Laban.
90 And it came to pass that we fled into the wilderness, and the servants of Laban did not overtake us, and we hid ourselves in the cavity of a rock.
91 And it came to pass that Laman was angry with me, and also with my father, and also was Lemuel; for he hearkened unto the words of Laman.
92 Wherefore Laman and Lemuel did speak many hard words unto us, their younger brothers, and they did smite us even with a rod.
93 And it came to pass as they smote us with a rod, behold an angel of the Lord came and stood before them, and he spake unto them saying, Why do ye smite your younger brother with a rod?
