strtoupper('“I') Jacob, Take It Upon Me to Fulfil the Commandment of My Brother Nephi”

Narrative: This is the end of Jacob's introduction. He makes a transition from the desires of Nephi and Jacob into a resolve and oath that he takes. In so doing, he has linked himself to Nephi's intentions, and declared by oath that he will fulfill them.

Thus Jacob does not see himself as creating a new work, but very literally extending Nephi's work and purposes.
