When Laman and Lemuel see Nephi working, they mock him.
Nephi is deeply hurt by their unbelief.
Laman and Lemuel continue to mock and scorn Nephi for his work; they blame him for all their problems.
In response, Nephi lectures his brothers, recounts the history of Israel, condemns their unbelief, and calls them to repentance.
Upon hearing this, Laman and Lemuel are furious, and want to throw Nephi into the ocean.
Nephi speaks on behalf of God in restraining Laman and Lemuel.

The Lord tells Nephi to stretch out his arm—Laman and Lemuel receive a powerful shock.
Laman and Lemuel acknowledge Nephi’s divine authority; they begin to worship Nephi, but Nephi tells them to worship God instead.
Nephi and his brothers continue construction on the boat.
Nephi often goes back to the mountain to receive divine guidance.
The ship is complete.
The Lord commands Lehi to take everyone into the ship.
