Studying the Scriptures
Do activity B and activity A or C as you study Ether 10.
Write an Introduction
Review Ether 10:1–8 and write a brief paragraph introducing Shez and his son Riplakish. Remember that an introduction should highlight what the people did and what contributions they made as leaders.
Make a Judgment
In your notebook, list the 12 Jaredite leaders in Ether 10:9–34.
By each name, write down whether the leader kept the commandments or did not keep the commandments, or that you are not sure.
Explain a Phrase
Moroni wrote in Ether 10:28 that there “never could be a people more blessed than were they.”
Who was he speaking of?
What do you think Moroni’s purpose was in making this statement?
