Another Attempt at Getting the Brass Plates
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
According to plan, the brothers stop by their old house, collect the valuables, and go back to Laban’s place.
They present the valuables and propose an exchange for the brass plates.
Laban takes the valuables, kicks the brothers out, and orders their deaths.
The brothers escape, dodge Laban’s hit men, and hide in a cave.
Furious at the failure of the plan, Laman and Lemuel begin to beat Sam and Nephi with a stick.
During the beating, and angel appears, reproves Laman and Lemuel, and promises that divine grace will attend them in their next attempt to get the brass plates.
After the angel leaves, Laman and Lemuel, apparently indifferent to the angel’s providential promise, express their skepticism and cynicism.
