45 But I know that he hath not sought for power nor authority over you; but he hath sought the glory of God, and your own eternal welfare.
46 And ye have murmured because he hath been plain unto you.
47 Ye say that he hath used sharpness; ye say that he hath been angry with you.
48 But behold, his sharpness was the sharpness of the power of the word of God, which was in him;
49 And that which ye call anger, was the truth, according to that which is in God, which he could not restrain, manifesting boldly concerning your iniquities.
50 And it must needs be that the power of God must be with him, even unto his commanding you, that ye must obey.
51 But behold, it was not him, but it was the Spirit of the Lord which was in him, which opened his mouth to utterance, that he could not shut it.
52 And now my son Laman and also Lemuel and Sam, and also my sons who are the sons of Ishmael, behold, if ye will hearken unto the voice of Nephi, ye shall not perish.
53 And if ye will hearken unto him, I leave unto you a blessing, yea, even my first blessing.
54 But if ye will not hearken unto him, I take away my first blessing, yea, even my blessing, and it shall rest upon him.
55 And now, Zoram, I speak unto you: Behold, thou art the servant of Laban; nevertheless, thou hast been brought out of the land of Jerusalem, and I know that thou art a true friend unto my son Nephi, for ever.
56 Wherefore, because thou hast been faithful, thy seed shall be blessed with his seed, that they dwell in prosperity long upon the face of this land;
57 And nothing, save it shall be iniquity among them, shall harm or disturb their prosperity upon the face of this land for ever.
58 Wherefore, if ye shall keep the commandments of the Lord, the Lord hath consecrated this land for the security of thy seed with the seed of my son.
59 And now, Jacob, I speak unto you: Thou art my first born in the days of my tribulation in the wilderness.
60 And behold, in thy childhood thou hast suffered afflictions and much sorrow, because of the rudeness of thy brethren.
61 Nevertheless, Jacob, my first born in the wilderness, thou knowest the greatness of God; and he shall consecrate thine afflictions for thy gain.
62 Wherefore thy soul shall be blessed, and thou shalt dwell safely with thy brother Nephi; and thy days shall be spent in the service of thy God.
63 Wherefore, I know that thou art redeemed, because of the righteousness of thy Redeemer: for thou hast beheld, that in the fullness of time, he cometh to bring salvation unto men.
64 And thou hast beheld in thy youth his glory; wherefore, thou art blessed even as they unto whom he shall minister in the flesh:
65 For the Spirit is the same, yesterday, to-day, and for ever.
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.
