Mormon Abridges the Nephite Records

Mormon’s Continued Abridgment

Words of Mormon 11

Mormon prays that this record will be preserved because of the great things written on them.

And I, Mormon, pray to God that they may be preserved from this time henceforth. And I know that they will be preserved; for there are great things written upon them, out of which my people and their brethren shall be judged at the great and last day, according to the word of God which is written.

Words of Mormon 9

Having completed the first part of his abridgement and included the additional plates from the same time period, Mormon goes on to abridge the remainder of the plates of Nephi.

And now I, Mormon, proceed to finish out my record, which I take from the plates of Nephi; and I make it according to the knowledge and the understanding which God has given me.
