3 Nephi 25-26
3 Nephi 25
1 For behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea,
and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them
up, saith the Lord of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name, shall the Son of Righteousness arise with healing
in his wings; and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves in the stall.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of
your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of Hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses, my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for
all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful
day of the Lord;
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the
children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
3 Nephi 26
1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had told these things he expounded them
unto the multitude; and he did expound all things unto them, both great and small.
2 And he saith: These scriptures, which ye had not with you, the Father commanded
that I should give unto you; for it was wisdom in him that they should be given unto
3 And he did expound all things, even from the beginning until the time that he should
come in his glory -- yea, even all things which should come upon the face of the
earth, even until the elements should melt with fervent heat, and the earth should
be wrapt together as a scroll, and the heavens and the earth should pass away;
4 And even unto the great and last day, when all people, and all kindreds, and all
nations and tongues shall stand before God, to be judged of their works, whether
they be good or whether they be evil --
5 If they be good, to the resurrection of everlasting life; and if they be evil,
to the resurrection of damnation; being on a parallel, the one on the one hand and
the other on the other hand, according to the mercy, and the justice, and the holiness
which is in Christ, who was before the world began.
6 And now there cannot be written in this book even a hundredth part of the things
which Jesus did truly teach unto the people;
7 But behold the plates of Nephi do contain the more part of the things which he
taught the people.
8 And these things have I written, which are a lesser part of the things which he
taught the people; and I have written them to the intent that they may be brought
again unto this people, from the Gentiles, according to the words which Jesus hath
9 And when they shall have received this, which is expedient that they should have
first, to try their faith, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things
then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them.
10 And if it so be that they will not believe these things, then shall the greater
things be withheld from them, unto their condemnation.
11 Behold, I was about to write them, all which were engraven upon the plates of
Nephi, but the Lord forbade it, saying: I will try the faith of my people.
12 Therefore I, Mormon, do write the things which have been commanded me of the Lord.
And now I, Mormon, make an end of my sayings, and proceed to write the things which
have been commanded me.
13 Therefore, I would that ye should behold that the Lord truly did teach the people,
for the space of three days; and after that he did show himself unto them oft, and
did break bread oft, and bless it, and give it unto them.
14 And it came to pass that he did teach and minister unto the children of the multitude
of whom hath been spoken, and he did loose their tongues, and they did speak unto
their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto
the people; and he loosed their tongues that they could utter.
15 And it came to pass that after he had ascended into heaven -- the second time
that he showed himself unto them, and had gone unto the Father, after having healed
all their sick, and their lame, and opened the eyes of their blind and unstopped
the ears of the deaf, and even had done all manner of cures among them, and raised
a man from the dead, and had shown forth his power unto them, and had ascended unto
the Father --
16 Behold, it came to pass on the morrow that the multitude gathered themselves together,
and they both saw and heard these children; yea, even babes did open their mouths
and utter marvelous things; and the things which they did utter were forbidden that
there should not any man write them.
Chapter 6 – The Christian Martyrs of Arabia and the Book of Mormon.
This fascinating chapter recounts three Book of Mormon miracles which have no parallel
in the Bible, including the children speaking marvelous things. The story of the
Christian martyrs of 523 A.D. provides a correlation with these miracles.
17 And it came to pass that the disciples whom Jesus had chosen began from that time
forth to baptize and to teach as many as did come unto them; and as many as were
baptized in the name of Jesus were filled with the Holy Ghost.
18 And many of them saw and heard unspeakable things, which are not lawful to be
19 And they taught, and did minister one to another; and they had all things common
among them, every man dealing justly, one with another.
20 And it came to pass that they did do all things even as Jesus had commanded them.
21 And they who were baptized in the name of Jesus were called the church of Christ.
