Schism Between the Nephites and the Lamanites
Colonization of the Promised Land
Not long after Lehi’s death, Laman, Lemuel, and some of Ishmael’s sons again get angry at Nephi and his followers for repeating Lehi’s words.
Nephi writes a psalm expressing his feelings.
Despite Nephi’s prayers, Laman and Lemuel’s dissenting view only deepen, and they want to kill Nephi.
The Lord warns Nephi, and instructs him to leave—Nephi warns his followers.
Nephi and his followers (Nephites) leave the settlement and the Lamanites (followers of Laman and Lemuel) behind.
These events were all a fulfillment of prophecy.
