Mosiah 6

We’re still on a hunt for some substitution and since Mosiah 6 is nice and short, I will “re-do” the entire chapter using this study skill:

And now, king Benjamin thought it was expedient, after having finished speaking to me, that he should take my name that entered into a covenant with God to keep his commandments.  And it came to pass that there was no one with me, except it were little children, but who had entered into the covenant and taken upon us the name of Christ.  And again, it came to pass that when king Benjamin had made an end of all these things, and had consecrated his son Mosiah to be a ruler and a king over me, and had given him all the charges concerning the kingdom, and also had appointed priests to teach the people, that thereby I might hear and know the commandments of God, and to stir me up in remembrance of the oath which I had made, he dismissed me, and I returned with my family to my own house.  And Mosiah began to reign in his father’s stead.  And he began his reign in the thirtieth year of his age, making in the whole, about four hundred and seventy-six years from the time that Lehi left Jerusalem.  And king Benjamin lived three years and he died.  And it came to pass that king Mosiah did walk in the ways of the Lord, and did observe his judgments and his statutes, and did keep his commandments in all things whatsoever he commanded him.  And king Mosiah did cause me that I should till the earth.  And he also, himself, did till the earth, that thereby he might not become burdensome to his people, that he might do according to that which his father had done in all things.  And there was no contention among all his people for the space of three years.

Not a whole lot of substitution here, but enough to keep the practice up and see what the next chapter might bring us.  20 more to go for the week.  Let’s keep at it.

I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
