Mighty Man¹

Ether, the last of the Jaredite prophets was a descendant of Coriantor, who was the son of Moron. This same Moron was a wicked ruler who was overthrown by “a mighty man” of influence among the circle of those engaged in secret combinations that were organized and “built up to get power and gain”. Moron was able to defeat this usurper and recover that part of the kingdom that had been lost. Thereafter “another mighty man” —a descendant of the brother of Jared—overthrew Moron again and forced him to dwell in captivity for the remainder of his days. Moron’s successor was his son, Coriantor.
