Shipbuilding Struggles in the Wilderness
The Jaredites go to work, and build small and light barges.
The barges were constructed in a very tight manner.
The brother of Jared prays, reports to the Lord that he built the barges, but expresses concern that there is no light or fresh air in the barges.
The Lord instructs the brother of Jared to cut two holes in the boat, one at the top and one at the bottom, allowing for ventilation.
The brother of Jared does as he is commanded, but still is concerned that there is no light.
The Lord asks the brother of Jared what he thinks should be done about the lighting problem—windows are not a viable option.
