Com²

In the Book of Ether, Moroni lists Com as the son of Coriantum, who was the son of Amnigaddah. Com drew away half of the kingdom and ruled over it himself for forty-two years, then ultimately defeated the king, named Amgid, and gained control over the entire land. During the reign of Com, secret combinations began once again to emerge. “And in the days of Com there began to be robbers in the land; and they adopted the old plans, and administered oaths after the manner of the ancients, and sought again to destroy the kingdom”. Com fought against these insurgents but was unable to prevail against them. Many prophets came forth during Com’s tenure to warn the people against destruction, should they not repent; however, the people reviled against them and they had to seek Com’s protection. “And they prophesied unto Com many things; and he was blessed in all the remainder of his days”.
