Passage: 1 Nephi 7:63 - 2 Nephi 1:12
63 And now behold, I, Nephi, say unto you, that all these things must come according to the flesh.
64 But, behold, all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, shall dwell safely in the Holy One of Israel, if it so be that they will repent.
65 And now I, Nephi, make an end; for I durst not speak further as yet, concerning these things.
66 Wherefore, my brethren, I would that ye should consider that the things which have been written upon the plates of brass, are true;
67 And they testify that a man must be obedient to the commandments of God.
68 Wherefore, ye need not suppose that I and my father are the only ones that have testified, and also taught them.
69 Wherefore, if ye shall be obedient to the commandments, and endure to the end, ye shall be saved at the last day.
70 And thus it is. Amen.

2 And he spake unto them concerning their rebellions upon the waters, and the mercies of God in sparing their lives, that they were not swallowed up in the sea.
3 And he also spake unto them concerning the land of promise which they had obtained, how merciful the Lord had been in warning us that we should flee out of the land of Jerusalem.
4 For, behold, said he, I have seen a vision, in which I know that Jerusalem is destroyed;
5 And had we remained in Jerusalem, we should also have perished.
6 But, said he, notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a land of promise, a land which is choice above all other lands;
7 A land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the inheritance of my seed.
8 Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me, and to my children for ever;
9 And also all those who should be led out of other countries, by the hand of the Lord.
10 Wherefore, I, Lehi, prophesy according to the workings of the Spirit which is in me, that there shall none come into this land, save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord.
11 Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom he shall bring.
12 And if it so be that they shall serve him according to the commandments which he hath given, it shall be a land of liberty unto them;
