"And thus Laman and Lemuel, being the eldest, did murmur against their father. And they did murmur because they knew not the dealings of that God who had created them. Neither did they believe that Jerusalem, that great city, could be destroyed according to the words of the prophets. And they were like unto the Jews who were at Jerusalem, who sought to take away the life of my father."
1 Nephi 2:12–13
“For the Mighty God shall deliver his covenant people. For thus saith the Lord: I will contend with them that contendeth with thee.”
2 Nephi 6:17
