1 Nephi 17:48–49

From Section: Arrival in Bountiful

From Page: Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia

…and as they came forth to lay their hands upon me I spake unto them, saying:

“In the name of the Almighty God, I command you that ye touch me not, for I am filled with the power of God, even unto the consuming of my flesh; and whoso shall lay his hands upon me shall wither even as a dried reed; and he shall be as naught before the power of God, for God shall smite him.”

And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto them that they should murmur no more against their father; neither should they withhold their labor from me, for God had commanded me that I should build a ship.
