Abstract

The account of Nephi’s conduct and Laman and Lemuel’s treatment of him while crossing the ocean teaches important principles of the gospel. A righteous person will prosper and the unrighteous will not. We bind ourselves by cords that hinder us by evil speaking, neglect of prayer, disobedience, and failure to pay tithing.
