Colonization of the Promised Land
The Jaredites begin to till the ground, multiply, and establish themselves—Jared has sons, one of whom is Orihah.
In time, Jared’s brother ages, and suggest to Jared that the people be gathered together to hear their wishes.
A census is taken, and the people express their wish to have king appointed.
The brother of Jared is concerned, as he thinks this will lead the people into captivity.
Jared says that the people should have their way, and tells them to choose a king.
The people choose the brother of Jared’s son, Pagag, but Pagag refuses; Pagag’s brothers and cousins all refuse as well, except for Jared’s son Orihah, who agrees, and becomes king.
