1 Nephi 4:11–13

From Section: A Final Attempt at Getting the Brass Plates

From Page: Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia

And the Spirit said unto me again:

“Behold the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands.”

Yea, and I also knew that he had sought to take away mine own life; yea, and he would not hearken unto the commandments of the Lord; and he also had taken away our property.

And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again:

“Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands; Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes. It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief.”
