Passage: Mosiah 1:50 - Mosiah 1:70
50 Behold, ye have called me your king; and if I, whom ye call your king, do labor to serve you, then had not ye ought to labor to serve one another?
51 And behold, also, if I, whom ye call your king, who has spent his days in your service, and yet has been in the service of God, doth merit any thanks from you, O how had you ought to thank your heavenly King!
52 I say unto you, my brethren, that if you should render all the thanks and praise which your whole souls have power to possess, to that God who has created you, and has kept and preserved you, and has caused that ye should rejoice, and has granted that ye should live in peace one with another;
53 I say unto you, that if ye should serve him who has created you from the beginning, and art preserving you from day to day, by lending you breath, that ye may live and move, and do according to your own will, and even supporting you from one moment to another;
54 I say, if ye should serve him with all your whole soul, yet ye would be unprofitable servants.
55 And behold, all that he requires of you, is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments, ye should prosper in the land;
56 And he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments, he doth bless you, and prosper you.
57 And now, in the first place, he hath created you, and granted unto you your lives, for which ye are indebted unto him.
58 And secondly: he doth require that ye should do as he hath commanded you, for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and therefore, he hath paid you.
59 And ye are still indebted unto him; and are, and will be, for ever and ever; therefore, of what have ye to boast?
60 And now I ask, Can ye say aught of yourselves? I answer you, Nay.
61 Ye can not say that ye are even as much as the dust of the earth: yet ye were created of the dust of the earth: but behold, it belongeth to him who created you.
62 And I, even I, whom ye call your king, am no better than ye yourselves are; for I am also of the dust.
63 And ye behold that I am old, and am about to yield up this mortal frame to its mother earth;
64 Therefore, as I said unto you that I had served you, walking with a clear conscience before God, even so I at this time have caused that ye should assemble yourselves together, that I might be found blameless, and that your blood should not come upon me, when I shall stand to be judged of God of the things whereof he hath commanded me concerning you.
65 I say unto you, that I have caused that ye should assemble yourselves together, that I might rid my garments of your blood, at this period of time when I am about to go down to my grave,
66 That I might go down in peace, and my immortal spirit may join the choirs above in singing the praises of a just God.
67 And moreover, I say unto you, that I have caused that ye should assemble yourselves together, that I might declare unto you that I can no longer be your teacher, nor your king;
68 For even at this time, my whole frame doth tremble exceedingly, while attempting to speak unto you;
69 But the Lord God doth support me, and hath suffered me, that I should speak unto you, and hath commanded me, that I should declare unto you this day, that my son Mosiah, is a king and a ruler over you.
70 And now, my brethren, I would that ye should do as ye have hitherto done.
