  1. 1.

    At the command of the Lord, I left Jerusalem with my wife and four sons and fled into the wilderness. One morning when I awoke, I found a brass ball by the door of my tent. This Liahona guided us in our travels through the wilderness across the ocean, and into the promised land.

    (See 1 Ne. 2:1–5; 1 Ne. 16:10, 28; 1 Ne. 18:2, 8, 12, 21–23; 2 Ne. 5:6, 12.)

  2. 2.

    I went back to Jerusalem with my three older brothers to get the brass plates. Although my brothers were afraid, I knew that the Lord would provide a way for us to do what He had commanded.

    (See 1 Ne. 3:1–7, 9; 1 Ne. 4:6–38.)

  3. 3.

    When I was fifteen years old, I was visited by the Lord. I became general of the Nephite army until the people became so wicked that I refused to serve any longer. I made a record of the things I have seen and heard and abridged the large plates of Nephi.

    (See W of M 1:3; Morm. 1:1, 15; Morm. 2:1–2; Morm. 3:11.)

  4. 4.

    I became king after my father’s death. My final address to my people was delivered from a high tower so that everyone could hear the words that had been given to me by the Lord.

    (See Omni 1:23; Mosiah 1:9–10; Mosiah 2:1, 6–7.)

  5. 5.

    I led two thousand young men to war against the Lamanites. We won the battle, and not one of these young men lost his life.

    (See Alma 56:1–5, 49–56.)

  6. 6.

    My brother and I and our families and friends did not have our language confounded at the Tower of Babel. We were told to prepare barges for crossing the ocean. I saw the finger of the Lord touch stones to provide light for our journey, and then Jesus Christ appeared and taught me many important truths.

    (See Ether 1:33–42; Ether 2:6, 16–25; Ether 3.)

  7. 7.

    I received the records of my people from my father. I made the final entry on the plates, then buried them in the Hill Cumorah. On September 22, 1827, I delivered these plates to Joseph Smith.

    (See W of M 1:1; Morm. 6:6; Morm. 8:13–14; JS—H 1:30, 33–34, 59.)

  8. 8.

    I stood on a wall and told the people about the signs of Christ’s birth and death. The wicked Nephites would not believe a Lamanite prophet, and they tried to kill me but could not.

    (See Hel. 13:1–4; Hel. 16:1–2.)

  9. 9.

    My father did the work of the Lord, but my friends and I were unbelievers. We persecuted members of the Church until one day an angel appeared to us. Afterward we served as missionaries and taught many people the gospel.

    (See Mosiah 26:15–17; Mosiah 27:8–17, 32–37.)

  10. 10.

    I led a party of men from Zarahemla to the land of Lehi-Nephi. I was taken before King Limhi, the leader of the people, and he showed me twenty-four gold plates. I took them to King Mosiah, who translated them.

    (See Mosiah 7:1–3, 7–9; Mosiah 8:6–9, 13–14; Mosiah 28:11–13.)
