THE BOOK OF MORMON.

[blocks in formation]

Wherefore. It is an abridgment of the record of the people of Nephi, and also of
the Lamanites; written to the Lamanites, who are a remnant of the House of
Israel; and also to Jew and Gentile: written by way of commandment, and also
by the spirit of prophecy and of revelation. Written and sealed up, and hid up
unto the Lord, that they might not be destroyed; to come forth by the gift and
power of God unto the interpretation thereof: sealed by the hand of Moroni,
and hid up unto the Lord, to come forth in due time by the way of Gentile; the

interpretation thereof by the gift of God:
An abridgment taken from the Book of Ether also; which is a record of the
people of Jared; who were scattered at the time the Lurd confounded the lan-
guage of the people, when they were building a tower to get to heaven ; which is
to shew unto the remnant of the House of Israel what great things the Lord
hath done for their fathers; and that they may know the covenants of the
Lord. that they are not cast off for ever; and also to the convincing of the Jew
and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself
anto all nations. And now if there are faults, they are the mistakes of men ;
wherefore condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the
judgment-seat of Christ.
