Evaluates and praises the integrity of several Nephite judges. Brings out four principles that they observed: (1) law, not personality, authority or force, governs society; (2) law was to be determined by the voice of the people; (3) prophets as God’s agents communicate proper principles of law; (4) laws were established through a spiritual foundation.
