A Final Attempt at Getting the Brass Plates
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
Nephi, putting his trust in the Lord, convinces his brothers to believe the angel and go back.
Laman and Lemuel are not happy to hear this, but agree to go back with Nephi despite their doubts.
Night had fallen; Nephi tells his brothers to go hide while he goes exploring.
As he approaches Laban’s house, Nephi stumbles upon a drunk man lying in the streets. It is Laban.
Nephi notices Laban’s sword.
The Spirit tells Nephi to kill Laban.
Nephi, shocked by the command, does not want to kill anyone.
The Spirit assures Nephi that Laban’s death is necessary.
Nephi thinks things through, and remembers the importance of these records.
Following the Spirit’s orders, Nephi decapitates Laban.
