    An account of the death of Lehi.
Nephi's brethren rebelleth against him.
The Lord warns Nephi to depart into the wilderness, etc.

    an end of teaching my brethren, our father Lehi also
    spake many things unto them and rehearsed unto them
    how great things the Lord had done for them in
    bringing them out of the Land of Jerusalem;
2    And he spake unto them concerning their rebellions upon
    the waters and the mercies of God in sparing their lives,
    that they were not swallowed up in the sea;
3    And he also spake unto them concerning the Land
    of Promise which they had obtained, how merciful
    the Lord had been in warning us that we

    we have obtained a Land of Promise, a land
    which is choice above all other lands,
7    A land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me
    should be a land for the inheritance of my seed;
8    Yea, the Lord hath consecrated this land unto me
    and to my children forever,
