Passage: Helaman 4:50 - Helaman 4:70
50 Sparing their lives, and delivering them out of the hands of their enemies; softening the hearts of their enemies, that they should not declare wars against them; yea, and in fine, doing all things for the welfare and happiness of his people;
51 Yea, then is the time that they do harden their hearts, and do forget the Lord their God, and do trample under their feet the Holy One; yea, and this because of their ease, and their exceeding great prosperity.
52 And thus we see, that except the Lord doth chasten his people with many afflictions, yea, except he doth visit them with death, and with terror, and with famine, and with all manner of pestilences, they will not remember him.
53 O how foolish, and how vain, and how evil, and devilish, and how quick to do iniquity, and how slow to do good, are the children of men;
54 Yea, how quick to hearken unto the words of the evil one, and to set their hearts upon the vain things of the world; yea, how quick to be lifted up in pride; yea, how quick to boast, and do all manner of that which is iniquity;
55 And how slow are they to remember the Lord their God, and to give ear unto his counsels; yea, how slow to walk in wisdom's paths!
56 Behold, they do not desire that the Lord their God, who hath created them, should rule and reign over them; notwithstanding his great goodness and his mercy towards them; they do set at nought his counsels, and they will not that he should be their guide.
57 O how great is the nothingness of the children of men; yea, even they are less than the dust of the earth.
58 For behold, the dust of the earth moveth hither and thither, to the dividing asunder, at the command of our great and everlasting God;
59 Yea, behold, at his voice doth the hills and the mountains tremble and quake; and by the power of his voice they are broken up, and become smooth, yea, even like unto a valley;
60 Yea, by the power of his voice doth the whole earth shake; yea, by the power of his voice, doth the foundations rock, even to the very center;
61 Yea, and if he say unto the earth, Move, it is moved; yea, if he say unto the earth, Thou shalt go back, that it lengthen out the day for many hours, it is done:
62 And thus according to his word, the earth goeth back, and it appeareth unto man that the sun standeth still: yea, and behold, this is so; for sure it is the earth that moveth, and not the sun.
63 And behold, also, if he say unto the waters of the great deep, Be thou dried up, it is done.
64 Behold, if he say unto this mountain, Be thou raised up, and come over and fall upon that city, that it be buried up, behold it is done.
65 And behold, if a man hide up a treasure in the earth, and the Lord shall say, Let it be accursed, because of the iniquity of him who hath hid it up, behold, it shall be accursed;
66 And if the Lord shall say, Be thou accursed, that no man shall find thee from this time henceforth and for ever, behold, no man getteth it henceforth and for ever.
67 And behold, if the Lord shall say unto a man, Because of thine iniquities thou shalt be accursed for ever, it shall be done.
68 And if the Lord shall say, Because of thine iniquities, thou shalt be cut off from my presence, he will cause that it shall be so.
69 And wo unto him to whom he shall say this, for it shall be unto him that will do iniquity, and he can not be saved; therefore, for this cause, that men might be saved, hath repentance been declared.
70 Therefore blessed are they who will repent and hearken unto the voice of the Lord their God; for these are they that shall be saved.
