strtoupper('“B')egan to Grow Hard in Their Hearts”

The death of Nephi was a great spiritual loss to the people. This became evident already during the reign of his successor. The people began to adopt the practices of David and Solomon regarding marriage and concubinage. They also began to prospect for gold and silver and as a consequence of worldly success, their hearts were filled with pride. Jacob reproved them severely, having obtained the Lord's will concerning these things.
