Enos 1:1
Previous  Next   Ref:  

1    Behold, it came to pass that I, Enos, knowing
    my father, that he was a just man, for he taught me
    in his language and also in the nurture
    and admonition of the Lord;
2    And blessed be the name of my God for it;
3    And I will tell you of the wrestle which I had before God,
    before that I received a remission of my sins.
4    Behold, I went to hunt beasts in the forest;
And the words which I had often heard my father speak
    concerning eternal life and the joy of the saints-
And the words of my father sunk deep into my heart;
5    And my soul hungered;
And I kneeled down before my Maker
    and I cried unto Him in mighty prayer
    and supplication for mine own soul;
6    And all the day long did I cry unto Him;
Yea, and when the night came, I did still raise
    my voice high, that it reached the heavens;
7    And there came a voice unto me, saying:
"Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee
    and thou shalt be blessed."
8    And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie;
Wherefore, my guilt was swept away.
9    And I saith:
"Lord, how is it done?"
