Jaredites

The word Jaredites, meaning descendants of Jared—he whom the Lord led away from the Tower of Babel—is mentioned only once in the Book of Mormon. Mormon wrote to his son Moroni about the pitiful and degenerate state of the Nephites of his day. “And if they perish it will be like unto the Jaredites, because of the wilfulness of their hearts, seeking for blood and revenge”.
