Trip Back to Jerusalem to Retrieve the Plates of Brass
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
Nephi and his brothers leave the valley of Lemuel, and return to Jerusalem, where Laban’s house is located.
The brothers consult before entering.
They randomly select Laman to go into Laban’s house.
Laman goes in, and asks Laban for the records.
Laban gets angry, accuses Laman of being a robber, and threatens to kill him.
Laman runs out, meets his disappointed brothers; they get ready to leave Jerusalem.
Nephi persuades them not to leave, and suggests they go to their old house in Jerusalem, collect all their valuables, and present them to Laban in exchange for the brass plates.
Meanwhile, back in the valley of Lemuel, Lehi’s wife Sariah complains about their sons’ likely deaths and grim situation in the desert.
Lehi comforts Sariah, reassuring her they are following the Lord’s instructions.
