“Which Were Delivered to Him by the Hand of Limhi”

W. Cleon Skousen

When we realize the king Mosiah was probably in poor health himself and worried about finding a successor, we wonder why Mosiah would take time out to translate this very extensive account on the 24 gold plates concerning the history of the Jaredites. Mormon therefore explains what induced Mosiah to undertake this tremendous task and also explain why this work was greatly facilitated by using the two stones, the Urim and Thummim.
