gone out of your hands, are engraven upon the plates  of Nephi; yea, and you remember, it was said in  those writings, that a more particular account was  given of these things upon the plates of Nephi.
10 And now, because the account which is engra ven upon the plates of Nephi, is more particular con cerning the things, which in my wisdom I would  bring to the knowledge of the people in this account:  therefore, you shall the engravings which  are on the plates of Nephi, down even till you come  to the reign of king Benjamin, or until you come to  that which you have translated, which you have re tained; and behold, you shall publish it as the rec ord of Nephi, and thus I will confound those who  have altered my words. I will not suffer that they  shall destroy my work; yea, I will show unto them  that my wisdom is greater than the cunning of the  devil.
11 Behold they have only got a part, or an abridg ment of the account of Nephi. Behold there are  many things engraven on the plates of Nephi, which  do throw greater views upon my gospel: therefore,  it is wisdom in me, that you should translate this  first part of the engravings of Nephi, and send forth  in this work. And behold, all the remainder of this  work, does contain all those parts of my gospel which  my holy prophets; yea, and also my disciples de sired in their prayers, should come forth unto this  people. And I said unto them, that it should be  granted unto them according to their faith in their  prayers; yea, and this was their faith, that my gos pel which I gave unto them, that they might preach  in their days, might come unto their brethren, the  , and also, all that had become Laman ites, because of their dissensions.
