1 Nephi 1:11–13

From Section: Lehi’s Prophetic Call

From Page: Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia

And they came down and went forth upon the face of the earth; and the first came and stood before my father, and gave unto him a book, and bade him that he should read. And it came to pass that as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of the Lord. And he read, saying:

“Wo, wo, unto Jerusalem,
_for I have seen thine abominations!”

Yea, and many things did my father read concerning Jerusalem— that it should be destroyed, and the inhabitants thereof; many should perish by the sword, and many should be carried away captive into Babylon.
