Enos continued to struggle with the Lord for promises in behalf of both Nephites and Lamanites. He received many precious assurances of things yet to be; amongst others, that the Lord would preserve the holy records and bring them forth unto the Lamanites in his own due time. Of these things Enos gladly testified to his people, going about in their midst, prophesying of that which he had both seen and heard.
In the days of Enos the struggle still continued between Nephites and Lamanites. The latter seem to have made it the business of their lives to harass and annoy their more peaceful brethren. Their hatred was fixed. They swore in their wrath that if it were possible they would destroy the Nephites and also their records that they might no longer be compelled to listen to their warnings or be tormented by their appeals for peace and friendship.
