“He Had Also Verified His Word Unto Them in Every Particular”

Brant Gardner

Textual: There is a rather abrupt transition between the unit describing the Lamanites joining with the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi and this verse. However, this verse clearly provides the capping information for this entire section. It is also a transition into the next section which is a discourse of Ammon concerning their successes. In the 1830 edition, there is no chapter break at this point, so we need to understand that this verse is transitional, not final. Mormon is not so much concluding a story as he is providing the link to the next thing he wants to include.
