Lehi’s Family Reunion
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
Lehi’s sons return with Zoram, much to their parents’ joy.
Sariah expresses her renewed faith, and they all celebrate together.
Afterwards, Lehi begins a thorough study of the brass plates.
Lehi finds that the brass plates contain Moses’ Pentateuch, and the writings of many prophets since Moses.
Lehi finds a genealogical record included in the plates; he is able to determine that he is a descendant of Joseph, Jacob’s son.
Lehi, filled with the Spirit, prophesies that, among other things, the contents of the brass plates will be preserved for his posterity.
Nephi acknowledges his and his father’s obedience, and they decide to carry the brass plates with them wherever they might go.
Lehi receives another revelation telling him that his sons need to be married before they make their pilgrimage. Lehi instructs his sons to go back to Jerusalem to find the family of a man named Ishmael, and bring them out to the valley of Lemuel with Lehi.
