Kim

Kim was the son of Morianton and the father of Levi —approximately midway between Jared, the founder of the Jaredite nation, and Ether, the final prophet among the Jaredites. “And Morianton did live to an exceedingly great age, and then he begat Kim; and Kim did reign in the stead of his father; and he did reign eight years, and his father died. And it came to pass that Kim did not reign in righteousness, wherefore he was not favored of the Lord”. Kim’s brother rose up in rebellion against him and kept him in captivity for the remainder of his life. In his old age, Kim had a son named Levi, who succeeded him in captivity and then regained the kingdom and reigned in righteousness.
