“I Did Not Murmur Against the Lord”

Brant Gardner

This verse is in the way of a flashback to show Nephi's response during the crisis. While bound so tightly that his wrists and ankles were sore and swollen, not to mention being helplessly bound as the vessel tossed to the point that fear finally entered Laman and Lemuel, Nephi indicates that praised the Lord, and did not murmur against him. In this particular instance Nephi's story touches lightly on that of Job.
