Passage: 2 Nephi 3:14 - 2 Nephi 3:34
14 And it came to pass that after my father had made an end of speaking to the sons and daughters of Laman, he caused the sons and daughters of Lemuel to be brought before him.
15 And he spake unto them, saying: Behold, my sons and my daughters, who are the sons and the daughters of my second son;
16 Behold, I leave unto you the same blessing which I left unto the sons and daughters of Laman; wherefore, thou shall not utterly be destroyed; but in the end thy seed shall be blessed.
17 And it came to pass that when my father had made an end of speaking unto them, behold, he spake unto the sons of Ishmael, yea, and even all his household.
18 And after he had made an end of speaking unto them, he spake unto Sam, saying:
19 Blessed are thou, and thy seed: for thou shalt inherit the land, like unto thy brother Nephi.
20 And thy seed shall be numbered with his seed;
21 And thou shalt be even like unto thy brother, and thy seed like unto his seed; and thou shalt be blessed in all thy days.
22 And it came to pass after my father Lehi had spoken unto all his household, according to the feelings of his heart, and the Spirit of the Lord which was in him, he waxed old.
23 And it came to pass that he died, and was buried.
24 And it came to pass that not many days after his death, Laman and Lemuel, and the sons of Ishmael, were angry with me because of the admonitions of the Lord:
25 For I, Nephi, was constrained to speak unto them, according to his word.
26 For I had spake many things unto them, and also my father, before his death;
27 Many of which sayings, are written upon mine other plates: for a more history part are written upon mine other plates.
28 And upon these, I write the things of my soul, and many of the scriptures which are engraven upon the plates of brass:
29 For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children.
30 Behold, my soul delighteth in the things of the Lord; and my heart pondereth continually upon the things which I have seen and heard.
31 Nevertheless, the great goodness of the Lord, in showing me his great and marvelous works, my heart exclaimeth, O wretched man that I am; yea, my heart sorroweth because of my flesh.
32 My soul grieveth because of mine iniquities.
33 I am encompassed about because of the temptations and the sins which doth so easily beset me.
34 And when I desire to rejoice, my heart groaneth because of my sins; nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted.
