1 Nephi 17:17–18

From Section: Arrival in Bountiful

From Page: Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia

And when my brethren saw that I was about to build a ship, they began to murmur against me, saying:

“Our brother is a fool, for he thinketh that he can build a ship; yea, and he also thinketh that he can cross these great waters.”

And thus my brethren did complain against me, and were desirous that they might not labor, for they did not believe that I could build a ship; neither would they believe that I was instructed of the Lord.
