Colonization of the Promised Land

Lehi’s Last Days

2 Nephi 1:1-4

After Nephi speaks, Lehi takes the floor, and reminds his family about the mercies of the Lord, and about the land of promise.

And now it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had made an end of teaching my brethren, our father, Lehi, also spake many things unto them, and rehearsed unto them, how great things the Lord had done for them in bringing them out of the land of Jerusalem. And he spake unto them concerning their rebellions upon the waters, and the mercies of God in sparing their lives, that they were not swallowed up in the sea.

And he also spake unto them concerning the land of promise, which they had obtained—how merciful the Lord had been in warning us that we should flee out of the land of Jerusalem. For, behold, said he:

2 Nephi 4:12

Lehi dies.

And it came to pass that he died, and was buried.
