Trip Back to Jerusalem to Retrieve Ishmael’s Family
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
Nephi and his brothers head out.
They find Ishmael’s family, and let them know their situation.
Ishmael understands, and agrees to join them. They all head back towards the valley of Lemuel.
On the way back, Laman, Lemuel, and their supporters rebel and suggest going back to Jerusalem.
Nephi reproves them, and reminds them of the Lord’s past providence, their responsibilities, and Jerusalem’s impending doom.
Laman and Lemuel are furious; they tie Nephi up and plan on leaving him for the wildlife to devour.
Nephi prays for help.
Nephi’s bands miraculously loosen, and he confronts Laman and Lemuel, who are ready to beat him; some of Ishmael’s family members reason with Laman and Lemuel, and they calm down.
Laman and Lemuel realize their errors, and beg Nephi for forgiveness.
Nephi forgives them; they continue on their journey, and finally arrive back at the valley of Lemuel, reuniting with Lehi.
