Onihah was one of the Nephite cities mentioned in the Book of Mormon that met a catastrophic end at the time of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This city, along with others, was specifically named when the resurrected Christ spoke to the survivors in the land and recounted the judgments that had befallen the wicked. In a display of divine retribution for the deaths of prophets and saints who had been slain among them, Christ declared that He had caused waters to cover Onihah, thereby concealing its iniquities and the evidence of its inhabitants’ abominable actions (3 Nephi 9:7). The sudden destruction of Onihah, along with the drowning of its inhabitants, was intended to halt the testimony of the martyrs’ blood against the wicked, suggesting that the city had reached an irredeemable state of wickedness at the time of its demise. The fate of Onihah signifies one of the many instances of widespread destruction that occurred in conjunction with the death of the Savior, serving as a stern reminder of the consequences of widespread societal rejection of the prophets and the gospel.
