Passage: Mosiah 1:62 - Mosiah 1:82
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.
71 As ye have kept my commandments, and also the commandments of my father, and have prospered, and have been kept from falling into the hands of your enemies,
72 Even so if ye shall keep the commandments of my son, or the commandments of God, which shall be delivered unto you by him, ye shall prosper in the land, and your enemies shall have no power over you.
73 But O my people, beware lest there shall arise contentions among you, and ye list to obey the evil spirit, which was spoken of by my father Mosiah.
74 For behold, there is a wo pronounced upon him who listeth to obey that spirit: for if he listeth to obey him, and remaineth and dieth in his sins, the same drinketh damnation to his own soul;
75 For he receiveth for his wages an everlasting punishment, having transgressed the law of God, contrary to his own knowledge.
76 I say unto you, that there are not any among you, except it be your little children, that have not been taught concerning these things, but what knoweth that ye are eternally indebted to your heavenly Father,
77 To render to him all that you have, and are, and also have been taught, concerning the records which contain the prophecies which have been spoken by the holy prophets, even down to the time our father Lehi left Jerusalem; and also, all that has been spoken by our fathers, until now.
78 And behold, also, they spake that which was commanded them of the Lord; therefore, they are just and true.
79 And now, I say unto you, my brethren, that after ye have known and have been taught all these things, if ye should transgress, and go contrary to that which has been spoken, that ye do withdraw yourselves from the Spirit of the Lord, that it may have no place in you to guide you in wisdom's path, that ye may be blessed, prospered, and preserved.
80 I say unto you, that the man that doeth this, the same cometh out in open rebellion against God;
81 Therefore he listeth to obey the evil spirit, and becometh an enemy to all righteousness;
82 Therefore, the Lord has no place in him, for he dwelleth not in unholy temples.
