“Many Hearts Died Pierced with Deep Wounds”

W. Cleon Skousen

Jacob compared these men with the Lamanites and said their iniquities were greater than the Lamanites. By pretending that they were simply following the example of David and Solomon, they had induced their wives to accept their evil practices, which is probably the reason it remained a secret. However, their bad examples had broken the hearts of their wives and destroyed the confidence of their children.
