Helaman 5:132
Previous  Next   Ref:  
132    "But behold, we know that this is a wicked tradition
    which has been handed down unto us by our fathers
    to cause us that we should believe in some great
    and marvelous thing which should come to pass,
But not among us, but in a land which is far distant,
    a land which we know not;
133    Therefore, they can keep us in ignorance, for we cannot
    witness with our own eyes that they are true;
134    And they will, by the cunning and the mysterious arts of
    the evil one, work some great mystery which we cannot
    understand, which will keep us down to be servants
    to their words, and also servants unto them,
For we depend upon them for to teach us the word;
135    And thus will they keep us in ignorance if we will yield
    ourselves unto them all the days of our lives."
136    And many more things did the people imagine up
    in their hearts which were foolish and vain;
137    And they were much disturbed, for Satan did
    stir them up to do iniquity continually;
Yea, he did go about spreading rumors and
    contentions upon all the face of the land,
That he might harden the hearts of the people against that
    which was good and against that which should come;
138    And notwithstanding the signs and the wonders
    which were wrought among the people of the Lord,
    and the many miracles which they did,
Satan did get great hold upon the hearts of the people
    upon all the face of the land.
139    And thus ended the ninetieth year of the reign
    of the judges over the people of Nephi.
140    And thus ended the book of Helaman, according
    to the record of Helaman and his sons.
