Laman and Lemuel

Church Educational System
Nephi’s description of his brothers is a serious indictment and shows just how hardened Laman and Lemuel had become. Note the spiritual power Lehi had (see 1 Nephi 2:14) and the source and key to Nephi’s greatness (see vv. 16, 19–20, 22).

Verses 20–24 contain the principles by which Lehi’s people were to govern themselves when they reached the promised land. What do these verses say that help us understand why the Lord had the rebellious brothers accompany their father to the promised land?
