And I, Jacob, saw that I must soon go down to my grave; wherefore, I said unto my son Enos:
“Take these plates.”
And I told him the things which my brother Nephi had commanded me, and he promised obedience unto the commands.
And I make an end of my writing upon these plates, which writing has been small; and to the reader I bid farewell, hoping that many of my brethren may read my words. Brethren, adieu.
