“There Were No More Wars in the Days of Shule”

Brant Gardner

Shule protected the prophets, and his people repented, thereby bringing prosperity. Shule fits the pattern that Moroni is driving home—that righteousness will operationalize the great promise attached to the land.

Redaction: This moralizing conclusion, like verse 26, is most likely Moroni’s editorial contribution.

Text: There is no chapter break at this point in the 1830 edition.
