2 Nephi 5:14–15,17

From Section: Settlement of the Nephites

From Page: The Land of Nephi

And I, Nephi, did take the sword of Laban, and after the manner of it did make many swords, lest by any means the people who were now called Lamanites should come upon us and destroy us; for I knew their hatred towards me and my children and those who were called my people.

And I did teach my people to build buildings, and to work in all manner of wood, and of iron, and of copper, and of brass, and of steel, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious ores, which were in great abundance.


And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did cause my people to be industrious, and to labor with their hands.
