IV Nephi 1:1
Previous  Next   Ref:  
Which is the Son of Nephi,
One of the Disciples of Jesus Christ

    An account of the people of Nephi according to his record.

1    And it came to pass that the thirty and fourth year
    passed away, and also the thirty and fifth;
And behold, the disciples of Jesus had formed
    a church of Christ in all the lands round about,
2    And as many as did come unto them and did truly repent
    of their sins were baptized in the name of Jesus;
And they did also receive the Holy Ghost.
3    And it came to pass in the thirty and sixth year,
    the people were all converted unto the Lord upon
    all the face of the land, both Nephites and Lamanites,
And there were no contentions and no disputations
    among them,
And every man did deal justly one with another;
4    And they had all things common among them,
Therefore, there were not rich and poor, bond and free,
But they were all made free and partakers
    of the heavenly gift.
5    And it came to pass that the thirty and seventh year
    passed away also,
And there still continued to be peace in the land.
6    And there were great and marvelous works
    wrought by the disciples of Jesus,
Insomuch that they did heal the sick,
    and raise the dead,
    and cause the lame to walk,
    and the blind to receive their sight,
    and the deaf to hear;
7    And all manner of miracles did they work
    among the children of men,
And in nothing did they work miracles,
    save it were in the name of Jesus.

8    And thus did the thirty and eighth year pass away,
    and also the thirty and ninth,
    and forty and first,
    and the forty and second,
Yea, even until forty and nine years had passed away,
    and also the fifty and first,
    and the fifty and second,
Yea, and even until fifty and nine years had passed away.
