Esrom

In Moroni’s leadership lineage in the Book of Ether, Ethem is three steps before Ether, the final prophet of the Jaredites. Ethem reigned in wickedness as king, despite the simultaneous ministry of many prophets who proclaimed the Lord’s covenant for the Promised Land: “that the Lord would utterly destroy them from off the face of the earth except they repented of their iniquities”. Ethem’s son and successor, Moron, continued in his father’s wicked ways.
