Angel Moroni taught Joseph to view a line, then Angel Moroni presented the translation immediately below the line. [29], That view was buoyed by passages such as 2 Nephi 30:6, which in early editions of the Book of Mormon, read: "[T]heir scales of darkness shall begin to fall from their eyes; and many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a white and a delightsome people.

During Samuel’s prophetic warning to the Nephites, he declared that the Lamanites were a people whom the Lord “hath hated.” While modern readers may find this language to be unusually harsh, in the ancient world the terms “love” and “hate” had less to do with emotion and more to do with a vassal’s covenantal relationship with a lord. The non-canonical introduction to the 1981 LDS Church edition of the Book of Mormon states that "the Lamanites are the principal ancestors of the American Indians.

A big battle between the Nephites and Lamanites occurs near 77-76 BC in the Land of Zarahemla. [10][11] The Book of Mormon recounts a series of large battles over two centuries, ending with the extermination of the Nephites by the Lamanites. In this picture of the twenty Lamanite missionaries, fifteen of the twenty were as light as Anglos, five were darker but equally delightsome. And thus they have taught their children that they should hate them, and that they should murder them, and that they should rob and plunder them, and do all they could to destroy them; therefore they have an eternal hatred towards the children of Nephi. This is what the Mormons believe to be very important, and they call the record of these events the "restoration of the Bible.". In Second Nephi 5, the original wording was the following: "Because of their unbelief, the Lamanites are cursed, receive a skin of blackness, and become a scourge unto the Nephites." * , title=(Book of Mormon) , section= , passage=For behold, I shall speak unto the Jews and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the Nephites and they shall write it}} Thus, their identities must have been kept although they were part of the one larger group called Nephites (4 Nephi 1:36-37). Russell M. Nelson This fluidity in the terms “Lamanites” and “Nephites” persisted throughout the history of Book of Mormon peoples. For instance, while the Book of Mormon makes it clear that the rival Nephite and Lamanite civilizations were centered near the "narrow neck" of land (understood to be somewhere in Central America), it says that they agreed to meet for their epic final battle at the "Hill Cumorah" (Mormon 6:1-6).
