And it came to pass that the Lord God said unto me:
“Make other plates; and thou shalt engraven many things upon them which are good in my sight, for the profit of thy people.”
Wherefore, I, Nephi, to be obedient to the commandments of the Lord, went and made these plates upon which I have engraven these things. And I engraved that which is pleasing unto God. And if my people are pleased with the things of God they will be pleased with mine engravings which are upon these plates. And if my people desire to know the more particular part of the history of my people they must search mine other plates.
