“But There Were Many Among Them Who Would Not Hear His Words”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

As may be expected, there were some among them who did not believe in the words of the king and queen, the Sacred Record says of them, "They went their way." There are always those who reject the counsel of God, relying upon their own strength. These, sacred history shows, are destroyed; those who accept His Word with thanksgiving and praise are benefited and blessed.
