Jacob 7:26

And it came to pass that I, Jacob, began to be old; and the record of this people being kept on the other plates of Nephi, wherefore, I conclude this record, declaring that I have written according to the best of my knowledge, by saying that

The time passed away with us,
And also our lives passed away
Like as it were unto us a dream,
we being a lonesome and a solemn people,
Wanderers, cast out from Jerusalem,
born in tribulation,
In a wilderness,
and hated of our brethren,
Which caused wars and contentions;
Wherefore, we did mourn out our days.
