Recolonization of the Land of Nephi

Limhi’s Public Conference

Mosiah 7:17

The next day, Limhi calls for all his subjects to gather.

And now, it came to pass on the morrow that king Limhi sent a proclamation among all his people, that thereby they might gather themselves together to the temple to hear the words which he should speak unto them.

Mosiah 7:18–33

Limhi speaks to his people and helps them understand the causes and effects of their actions, and counsels them to turn to the Lord and trust in him.

And it came to pass that when they had gathered themselves together that he spake unto them in this wise, saying:

Mosiah 8:1–3

Ammon addresses the people, and tells them the history of Zarahemla from the time that they left.

And it came to pass that after king Limhi had made an end of speaking to his people, for he spake many things unto them and only a few of them have I written in this book, he told his people all the things concerning their brethren who were in the land of Zarahemla.

And he caused that Ammon should stand up before the multitude, and rehearse unto them all that had happened unto their brethren from the time that Zeniff went up out of the land even until the time that he himself came up out of the land.

And he also rehearsed unto them the last words which king Benjamin had taught them, and explained them to the people of king Limhi, so that they might understand all the words which he spake.

Mosiah 8:4

Limhi dismisses the people.

And it came to pass that after he had done all this, that king Limhi dismissed the multitude, and caused that they should return every one unto his own house.
