“And they began to grow exceedingly rich. But notwithstanding their riches, or their strength, or their prosperity, they were not lifted up in the pride of their eyes.”
“But behold, I shall take these plates, which contain these prophesyings and revelations, and put them with the remainder of my record, for they are choice unto me.”
Words of Mormon 1:6
"And now, because of the steadiness of the church they began to be exceedingly rich, having abundance of all things whatsoever they stood in need—an abundance of flocks and herds, and fatlings of every kind, and also abundance of grain, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious things, and abundance of silk and fine-twined linen, and all manner of good homely cloth."
“A senum of silver was equal to a senine of gold, and either for a measure of barley, and also for a measure of every kind of grain.”
"And surely there could not be a happier people among all the people who had been created by the hand of God."
4 Nephi 1:16
“And some were lifted up unto pride and boastings because of their exceedingly great riches, yea, even unto great persecutions.”
3 Nephi 6:10
“The Lord did cease to preserve them by his miraculous and matchless power, for they had fallen into a state of unbelief and awful wickedness”
