strtoupper('“I') Shall Deliver Up These Plates Unto Him”

Amaleki bears his final testimony as he prepares to close out his record. Unlike his father and grandfather, Amaleki is a man of demonstrable faith, and he witnesses his faith in Christ as he closes the record.

Textual: Amaleki indicates that he has no children. Since he says that he has "no seed" it may be that he has no children at all, though there is a slight possibility that he means he has no sons, as the Book of Mormon transmission lines are always through the male. In any case, the transmission line which began when Nephi gave these plates to his brother Jacob is now complete, and these plates will be reunited with the transmission line of Nephi's other plates.
