Ammon’s Rehearsal

Poem

Ammon said unto him:

a

I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God,

b

and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people,

c

that they may be brought to a knowledge

d

of that which is just and true;

b

and a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me,

c

which giveth me knowledge, and also power

d

according to my faith and desires

a

which are in God.

Now when Ammon had said these words,

e

he began at the creation of the world, and also the creation of Adam,

f

and told him all the things concerning the fall of man,

g

and rehearsed and laid before him the records and the holy scriptures of the people,

h

which had been spoken by the prophets, even down to the time that their father, Lehi, left Jerusalem.

i

And he also rehearsed unto them all the journeyings of their fathers in the wilderness, and all their sufferings with hunger and thirst, and their travail, and so forth.

i

And he also rehearsed unto them concerning the rebellions of Laman and Lemuel, and the sons of Ishmael, yea, all their rebellions did he relate unto them;

g

and he expounded unto them all the records and scriptures

h

from the time that Lehi left Jerusalem down to the present time.

f

But this is not all; for he expounded unto them the plan of redemption,

e

which was prepared from the foundation of the world;

c

and he also made known unto them

a

concerning the coming of Christ,

a

and all the works of the Lord

c

did he make known unto them.

—Alma 18:34–39
