Corom

Corom was the son of Levi” , and he ruled the Jaredites approximately midway between Jared, the founder of the Jaredite nation, and Ether, the final prophet of the Jaredites. Levi obtained control over the entire kingdom and ruled in righteousness, having many sons and daughters, among whom was Corom, “whom he anointed king in his stead”. Moroni summarized the entire life of Corom in a single verse. “And it came to pass that Corom did that which was good in the sight of the Lord all his days; and he begat many sons and daughters; and after he had seen many days he did pass away, even like unto the rest of the earth; and Kish reigned in his stead”.
