    Steal, Stealing

    To take something from another dishonestly or unlawfully. The Lord has always commanded his children to not steal (Ex. 20:15; Matt. 19:18; 2 Ne. 26:32; Mosiah 13:22; D&C 59:6).

    • Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where thieves do not break through nor steal:Matt. 6:19–21;
    • The Nephites’ defeats came because of pride, riches, plundering, stealing:Hel. 4:12;
    • He that stealeth and will not repent shall be cast out:D&C 42:20;
    • Those who steal shall be delivered up unto the law of the land:D&C 42:84–85;
