205 And Jacob and Joseph also, being young, having need of much nourishment, were grieved because of the afflictions of their mother;
206 And also my wife, with her tears and prayers, and also my children, did not soften the hearts of my brethren, that they would loose me;
207 And there was nothing, save it were the power of God, which threatened them with destruction, could soften their hearts;
208 Wherefore, when they saw that they were about to be swallowed up in the depths of the sea, they repented of the thing which they had done, insomuch that they loosed me.
209 And it came to pass after they had loosed me, behold, I took the compass, and it did work whither I desired it.
210 And it came to pass that I prayed unto the Lord; and after I had prayed, the winds did cease, and the storm did cease, and there was a great calm.
211 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did guide the ship, that we sailed again towards the promised land.
212 And it came to pass that after we had sailed for the space of many days, we did arrive to the promised land;
213 And we went forth upon the land, and did pitch our tents; and we did call it the promised land.
214 And it came to pass that we did begin to till the earth, and we began to plant seeds, yea, we did put all our seeds into the earth, which we had brought from the land of Jerusalem.
215 And it came to pass that they did grow exceedingly; wherefore, we were blessed in abundance.
216 And it came to pass that we did find upon the land of promise, as we journeyed in the wilderness, that there were beasts in the forests of every kind, both the cow, and the ox, and the ass, and the horse, and the goat, and the wild goat, and all manner of wild animals, which were for the use of men.
217 And we did find all manner of ore, both of gold, and of silver, and of copper.
218 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded me, wherefore I did make plates of ore, that I might engraven upon them the record of my people.
219 And upon the plates which I made, I did engrave the record of my father, and also our journeyings in the wilderness, and the prophecies of my father; and also many of mine own prophecies have I engraven upon them.
220 And I knew not at the time when I made them, that I should be commanded of the Lord to make these plates;
221 Wherefore, the record of my father, and the genealogy of his forefathers, and the more part of all our proceedings in the wilderness, are engraven upon those plates of which I have spoken;
222 Wherefore, the things which transpired before I made these plates, are, of a truth, more particularly made mention upon the first plates.
223 And after I had made these plates by way of commandment I, Nephi, received a commandment, that the ministry, and the prophecies, the more plain and precious parts of them should be written upon these plates;
224 And that the things which were written, should be kept for the instruction of my people, who should possess the land, and also for other wise purposes, which purposes are known unto the Lord;
225 Wherefore I, Nephi, did make a record upon the other plates, which gives an account, or which gives a greater account of the wars and contentions and destructions of my people.
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
