Wife of Nephi

Among those who rose in support of Nephi during the internal skirmish on the return trip to bring Ishmael and his family to Lehi’s camp was one of the daughters of Ishmael. The scriptures later related that “I, Nephi, took one of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also, my brethren took of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also Zoram took the eldest daughter of Ishmael to wife”. Although not stated, Nephi may have chosen as his wife the same young woman who sided with him during the conflict with his brothers and other members of Ishmael’s family.
