Mormon 7: Mormon's Testimony to His People

Book of Mormon Student Study Guide, (2000), 183–184


We read in Mormon 6 of terrible and destructive battles in which Mormon himself was wounded. Mormon 7 is Mormon’s message “unto the remnant of this people who are spared” (v. 1) in both his time and the latter days. Since Mormon’s son Moroni wrote Mormon 8 and tells us of Mormon’s death, this is the final testimony Mormon wrote in this book.
