1 Nephi 19:1–2

From Section: Nephi’s Records

From Page: Colonization of the Promised Land

And it came to pass that the Lord commanded me, wherefore I did make plates of ore that I might engraven upon them the record of my people.

And upon the plates which I made I did engraven the record of my father, and also our journeyings in the wilderness, and the prophecies of my father; and also many of mine own prophecies have I engraven upon them.

And I knew not at the time when I made them that I should be commanded of the Lord to make these plates; wherefore, the record of my father, and the genealogy of his fathers, and the more part of all our proceedings in the wilderness are engraven upon those first plates of which I have spoken; wherefore, the things which transpired before I made these plates are, of a truth, more particularly made mention upon the first plates.
