The Records of Ether

Daniel H. Ludlow

Mosiah's translation of the gold plates discovered by the people of Limhi was evidently made available to the people of Mosiah (Mosiah 28:11, 18), and Mormon promises that an account of this record "shall be written hereafter; for behold, it is expedient that all people should know the things which are written in this account" (Mosiah 28:19). Mormon's son Moroni later abridges the account contained in these records, and his abridgment appears in our present Book of Mormon as the book of Ether.
