Jaredite Era

The Reigns of Aha and Ethem

Ether 11:10

Seth’s son Ahah becomes king in captivity, and reigns in violence and wickedness, but only for a short time.

And it came to pass that Ahah, his son, did obtain the kingdom; and he did reign over the people all his days. And he did do all manner of iniquity in his days, by which he did cause the shedding of much blood; and few were his days.

Ether 11:11

Ethem, a descendant of Ahah, inherits the kingdom, and likewise rules wickedly.

And Ethem, being a descendant of Ahah, did obtain the kingdom; and he also did do that which was wicked in his days.

Ether 11:12

Once again, prophets come to warn the people of more destruction unless they repent.

And it came to pass that in the days of Ethem there came many prophets, and prophesied again unto the people; yea, they did prophesy that the Lord would utterly destroy them from off the face of the earth except they repented of their iniquities.

Ether 11:13

The people reject the prophets, who mourn because of the people’s wickedness.

And it came to pass that the people hardened their hearts, and would not hearken unto their words; and the prophets mourned and withdrew from among the people.

Ether 11:14

Ethem is wicked his whole life; his son Moron is also wicked.

And it came to pass that Ethem did execute judgment in wickedness all his days; and he begat Moron. And it came to pass that Moron did reign in his stead; and Moron did that which was wicked before the Lord.
