Mosiah 29:2–3

From Section: Government Reform

From Page: Zarahemla Under Monarchial Rule

And it came to pass that the voice of the people came, saying:

“We are desirous that Aaron thy son
_should be our king and our ruler.”

Now Aaron had gone up to the land of Nephi, therefore the king could not confer the kingdom upon him; neither would Aaron take upon him the kingdom; neither were any of the sons of Mosiah willing to take upon them the kingdom.
