References in the Scriptures.
Now this was the covenant which they made, and they acast
their garments at the feet of Moroni, saying: We bcovenant
with our God, that we shall be destroyed, even as our brethren in the land northward, if we shall fall into transgression; yea, he may cast us at the feet of our enemies, even as we have cast our garments at thy feet to be trodden under foot, if we shall fall into transgression.
Moroni said unto them: Behold, we are a aremnant
of the seed of Jacob; yea, we are a remnant of the seed of bJoseph
, whose ccoat
was rent by his brethren into many pieces; yea, and now behold, let us remember to keep the commandments of God, or our garments shall be rent by our brethren, and we be cast into prison, or be sold, or be slain.
