Passage: 1 Nephi 3:35 - 1 Nephi 3:55
35 And no unclean thing can dwell with God; wherefore ye must be cast off for ever.
36 And the Holy Ghost giveth authority that I should speak these things and deny them not.
37 For it came to pass after I had desired to know the things that my father had seen, and believing that the Lord was able to make them known unto me,
38 As I sat pondering in mine heart I was caught away in the Spirit of the Lord,yea, into an exceeding high mountain, which I never had before seen, and upon which I never had before set my foot.
39 And the Spirit said unto me, Behold, what desirest thou?
40 And I said, I desire to behold the things which my father saw.
41 And the Spirit said unto me, Believest thou that thy father saw the tree of which he hath spoken?
42 And I said, Yea, thou knowest that I believe all the words of my father.
43 And when I had spoken these words, the Spirit cried with a loud voice, saying, Hosanna to the Lord, the most high God; for he is God over all the earth, yea, even above all.
44 And blessed art thou, Nephi, because thou believest in the Son of the most high God; wherefore, thou shalt behold the things which thou hast desired.
45 And behold, this thing shall be given unto thee for a sign, that after thou hast beheld the tree which bore the fruit which thy father tasted, thou shalt also behold a man descending out of heaven; and him shall ye witness; and after ye have witnessed him, ye shall bear record that it is the Son of God.
46 And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me, Look! and I looked and beheld a tree; and it was like unto the tree which my father had seen; and the beauty thereof was far beyond, yea, exceeding of all beauty; and the whiteness thereof did exceed the whiteness of the driven snow.
47 And it came to pass after I had seen the tree, I said unto the Spirit, I behold thou hast shewn unto me the tree which is precious above all.
48 And he said unto me, What desirest thou?
49 And I said unto him, To know the interpretation thereof:
50 For I spake unto him as a man speaketh; for I beheld that he was in the form of a man; yet, nevertheless, I knew that it was the Spirit of the Lord: and he spake unto me as a man speaketh with another.
51 And it came to pass that he said unto me, Look! and I looked as if to look upon him, and I saw him not; for he had gone from before my presence.
52 And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the great city of Jerusalem, and also other cities.
53 And I beheld the city of Nazareth: and in the city of Nazareth I beheld a virgin, and she was exceedingly fair and white.
54 And it came to pass that I saw the heavens open; and an angel came down and stood before me; and he said unto me, Nephi, what beholdest thou?
55 And I said unto him, A virgin, most beautiful and fair above all other virgins.
