of Gadianton did spread over all the face of the land

them to take happiness in sin

all my days; nevertheless, I know that I shall be lifted up at the last

soul who belongs to the whole human family of Adam

that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed

without calling upon that Being who created them.

5:18 is tossed about upon the waves without sail or anchor or without
anything wherewith to steer her
6:7 that awful fear of death which fills the breasts of all the wicked
6:17 O ye fair ones, how could ye have rejected that Jesus, who stood
with open arms to receive you!
7:7 to sing ceaseless praises with the choirs above, unto the Father,
and unto the Son. . .in a state of happiness which hath no end.
7:9 this is written for the intent that ye may believe that and if ye
believe that ye will believe this also
8:22 For the eternal purposes of the Lord shall roll on, until all his
promises shall be fulfilled.
8:35 I speak unto you as if ye were present, and yet ye are not. But behold
Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me and I know your doing
8:38 why have ye polluted the holy church of God?
9:4 ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and just God, under
a consciousness of your filthiness
9:12 by Adam came the fall of man. And because of the fall of man came
Jesus Christ. . .and because of Jesus Christ came the redemption of man.
9:28 yield to no temptation but that ye will serve the true and living
9:29 see that ye do all things in worthiness and do it in the name of
9:31 Condemn me not because of mine imperfection neither my father, because
of his imperfection
2:9 the fullness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in
2:10 for behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands;
2:10 wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept
off; for it is the everlasting decree of God.
2:11 not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants
of the land have hitherto done
2:12 free from bondage and from captivity and from all other nations under
heaven if they will. . .serve. . .God
2:15 remember that my Spirit will not always strive with man
3:4 O Lord, that thou hast all power and can do whatsoever thou wilt for
the benefit of man

5:6 ye shall know that I have authority when ye shall see me, and we shall
stand before God.
8:17 leading them away by fair promises to do whatsoever thing he desired
8:18 they formed a secret combination. . .which combination is most abominable
and wicked above all in the sight of God
8:21 they have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now
speaking and. . .the people of Nephi
8:22 whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations. . .shall
8:23 suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you
8:23 which are built up to get power and gain
8:24 The Lord commandeth you when ye shall see these things come among
you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation
8:25 whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands,
nations, and countries
8:26 Wherefore, I, Moroni am commanded to write these things that evil
may be done away
10:5 grievous to be borne; yea, he did tax them with heavy taxes
11:5 all the prophets who prophesied of the destruction of the people
should be put to death
12:4 whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world
12:4 which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men
12:6 faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute
not because ye see not,
12:6 for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.
12:19 truly saw with their eyes the things which they had beheld with
an eye of faith,
12:26 Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for
12:27 I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is
sufficient for all men
12:28 faith, hope and charity bringeth unto me--the fountain of all righteousness.12:34
this love which thou hast had for the children of men is charity;
12:41 I would commend you to seek this Jesus of whom the prophets and
apostles have written
6:3 they took upon them the name of Christ, having a determination to
serve him to the end.
6:4 their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished
by the good word of God.
6:5 to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls
6:9 the Holy Ghost led them whether to preach, or to exhort, or to pray
or to supplicate,
7:3 I would speak unto you that are of the church, that are the peaceable
followers of Christ
7:6 a man being evil cannot do that which is good
7:8 If a man being evil giveth a gift, he doeth it grudgingly
7:9 counted evil unto a man if he shall pray and not with real intent
7:11 a man being a servant of the devil cannot follow Christ
7:11 if he follow Christ he cannot be a servant of the devil
7:12 Wherefore, all things which are good cometh of God; and that which
is evil cometh of the devil
7:16 For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may
know good from evil
7:16 every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe
in Christ...it is of God.
7:17 do evil and believe not in Christ. . .serve not God. . .is of the
7:19 ye should search diligently in the light of Christ that ye may know
good from evil;
7:19 if ye will lay hold upon every good thing, and condemn it not, ye
certainly will be a child of Christ.
7:41 ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power
of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal
7:42 if a man have faith he must needs have hope;
7:43 cannot have faith and hope, save he shall be meek, and lowly of heart.
7:44 if he have not charity he is nothing
7:45 And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is
not puffed up
7:46 if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth
7:46 cleave unto charity which is the greatest of all
7:47 charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever
7:48 pray unto the father with all the energy of heart that ye may be
filled with this love
8:3 I am mindful of you always in my prayers
8:17 I am filled with charity, which is everlasting love
8:27 Behold, the pride of this nation, or the people of the Nephites,
hath proven their destruction
8:28 seeking to put down all power and authority which cometh from God
9:4 when I speak the word of God with sharpness they tremble and anger
against me; and when I use no sharpness they harden their hearts
9:6 And now, my beloved son, notwithstanding their hardness, let us labor
9:6 if we should cease to labor we should be brought under condemnation;
for we have a labor to perform
9:6 that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls
in the kingdom of God.
9:21 I cannot recommend them unto God lest he should smite me.
9:22 But behold my son, I recommend thee unto God
9:25 be faithful in Christ; and may not the things which I have written
grieve thee, to weigh thee down unto death
9:25 but may Christ lift thee up. . .and the hope of his glory and of
eternal life, rest in your mind forever
10:4 if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith
10:5 by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things
10:22 if ye have no hope ye must needs be in despair; and despair cometh
because of iniquity
10:32 deny yourselves of all ungodliness and love God with all your might,
mind and strength
10:33 then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the
shedding of the blood of Christ.
