The Nephites Separate from the Lamanites | 2 Nephi 5 | Book of Mormon


It is about 588 to 559 BC in the new world Laman and lemuel resent their younger brother new fight and make plans to kill him following the Lord’s direction Nephi and his family flee to a new land Based on actual events as recorded in the Book of Mormon another testament of Jesus Christ The father gone meat buy things to rule over us We have had much trial because of him It belongs to us to rule over this people But a slave The anchor of my present they seek to take away my life Lord what is that? Well Be fine, what is it? They seek to take away my life will we fight our own brothers? The Lord is one mean that we should depart from them and flee into the wilderness Who a wretched man that I am Yay my heart sorrow with because of my flesh And I saw grieveth because of mine iniquities I am encompassed about because of the temptations of the sins, which do so easily beset me And when I desire to rejoice my heart grown it’s because of my sins Nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted my god hath been my support You have filled in with his love Even when to the consuming of my flesh Awake my soul no longer truancy Rejoice of my heart and give place normal to the enemy of my soul Rejoice in my heart and cry unto the Lord and say Oh Lord, I will praise thee forever Yeah, my soul rejoice in thee my god and the rock of my salvation We shall call the name of this place Nephi The Lord was with us and we did prosper exceedingly And we did observe to keep the judgments and the statutes and the commandments of the Lord And we began to raise flocks and herds and animals of every kind And I did cause my people to be industrious and to labor with their hands And I did build a temple And I did constructed after the manner of the Temple of Solomon say that we’re not built of so many precious things A nine if I did tape the sort of laven And after the matter of it did make many swords Best by any means the people who are now called the Lamanites should come upon us and Destroy us and the Lord. God said unto me Make other plates and thou shalt engraven many things upon which are good in my sight Pick up and I did consecrate Jacob and Joseph that they should be priests and teachers over the land of my people But it came to pass that we began to prosper exceedingly and to multiply in the land And 30 years had passed away from the time we left Jerusalem And we lived after the manner of happiness You

  1. T Barron says:

    Before this video, I never thought so much about the sadness of the cousins leaving each other. Thank you for bringing the emotion.

  2. Stephen Tickal says:

    I just watched this with my five-year-old daughter. Her comment is that "God is always with you." Like my daughter, the children in this video were "full of love". I want to be like them when I grow up.

  3. Sky Hiker 9 says:

    So wonderful the love God has for His children. Christ lives.

  4. Nick says:

    Good video. I think hundreds if not thousands went with Nephi tho. The land was heavily populated and scriptures say "And all those who would go with me". Says that after listing family. Lots would be needed to reach the level of population needed down the line

  5. awesome astronaut says:

    Who's ready for another round of strangers on the internet insulting our beliefs?

  6. Jared Slye says:

    Great episode. The Lord rewarded the Nephites for their righteousness.

  7. Anatolii Zubrytskyi says:

    My son loves it!!!

  8. Audra Stewart says:

    Thank you Jesus for our great Fathers the Prophets.Never stop never give up never forsake TheLord your God, and Awake unto the Lords praises,come out of the sleep of death and darkness and rise up to the exquisite Light and Bless the name of Christ Jesus we pray this beautiful day,Amen forever Amen xox

  9. awesome astronaut says:

    I always have loved the scripture in 2 Nephi 10:20. I felt like it showed a symbolism of how the travels of Lehi's family was symbolic of a change of heart, ending with being in a new, holier place, and separating at last from sin.

    Placing Nephi's Psalm over when they're departing into the wilderness was a great choice, and I feel echoes the symbolic interpretation I just described.

  10. Atyeh Atyeh says:

    Beautiful , very spiritual

  11. Ray Conger says:

    Oh my! Separation. It had to happen.

  12. Jessica Nestor says:

    when i read this chapter in the book of mormon, it was sad, but watching it makes all of the emotions more real. i’m so grateful for these videos and for the book of mormon.

  13. Daniel Randell says:

    Thank you. Another great message come to life.

  14. David Christen says:

    There is evidence that a man discovered the place if nephis Temple in the 1900s but it was destroyed by the military soon after.

  15. ray salmon says:

    Ok one of reasons the mormons platform this aledged story is because history 2400 years can be very vague and very hard to disprove.
    Yet the very recent history which has been confirmed it the very obtuse and varied claims of Joseph Smith no education yet translated reformed Egyptian when there not even any archaeologist around to read it.
    Plus the first vision has different versions and reveals embellishments
    Any real history does not have this.

  16. William Chambers says:

    So excited for Friday's and the next video to be released! Not to cause any contention but I believe in the Heartland location and when they entered the land of Nephi, It looked like the Northern Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee area!

  17. Hazel Ortiola Cajumban says:

    It made me cry.. but made my soul so Joyful ♥️

  18. Thom Baumgardner says:

    the land of nephi looks right and familiar. a temple should have a ramp.

  19. Dallas Moore says:

    They left out the part where the Lord showed them how to make swords that would disappear to confound modern archaeologists and cause the saints to rely solely on faith.

  20. christy critser says:

    These videos are truly a treasure.

  21. LucarianSpy says:

    What a great final shot. All the buildings and everything look really well done and nice

  22. Lona Misto says:

    <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Thank you! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  23. Dìonadair Productions says:

    Hey, they figured it how to get Nephi’s writings in!

  24. Mitchell Perry says:

    What a wonderful video!!!

  25. Tj Lokboj says:

    These just keep getting better. Thanks to all involved in creating them!

  26. Matt Yang says:

    …so are they gonna show God cursing the Lamanites with 'dark skin' orrrrr

  27. Gypsy Olie says:

    I head tears in my eyes the whole time I watched this. Thank you for these videos.

  28. Gustavo Santos says:

    This is pure awesomeness!

  29. Bridger Lisonbee says:

    I loved how he said they lived "after the manner of happiness". As I thought about how my wife and I are going to build our own people, how we want to live in that same manner and I know the only way to do that is to live after the manner we see depicted in the scriptures and those that keep the commandments. Titus 1:15 to try and become pure so that all things to us and our families are pure and full of joy.

  30. Bron Solo says:

    I'm really curious how they will represent the lamanites. Are they going to get a bunch of dark skinned actors? Who knows

  31. Rhyto says:

    Just failed a math test, this helped me reflect and take in this result.

  32. Jacob Andersen says:

    Sam is the ultimate bro.

  33. FunToSail com says:

    It Happened! Read the BoM, it will change your life for the better and bring you closer to Christ.

  34. Larry Carter says:

    I believed he took much more people with him. I read that he took all that believed in the Lord. Am I wrong in this?

  35. majorattitude01 says:

    This is one of my most favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon. It reminds me though life presents many challenges, if we can go forward in trying to do the Lord’s will, then we will be strengthened.

    Living in the manner of happiness doesn’t mean that everything is perfect (Lehi taught that there is opposition in all things), yet by working to keep the commandments we can be happy.

  36. Techis God says:

    THIS PROVES TO ME. NEVER TRUST YOUR FAMILY. NEVER TRUST IN A MOTHER, FATHER, BROTHER OR SISTER!!!!! Mark my words. When it comes to inheriting money, your family will sell you out of everything!!!!!!!! They will write you off!!!!!!!!! They would rather see you dead than to give you anything. The only one you can trust is God.

  37. Nate Bent says:

    I've always wondered…how did they reproduce without marrying their cousins/double cousins (half-siblings genetically)? Or did they?

  38. Sarah Russie says:

    It was awesome how they showed the pain of families having to separate because of bad choices by some. It's a painful reality that comes with choosing wrong, choosing pride and selfishness: hurting others in your wake. Nephi was admirable for continually going to the Lord to know how to handle challenges that likely often seemed impossible to overcome. He's been a great example for me.

  39. Grace Sego says:

    I love these videos so much!! 🙂

  40. carbon273 says:

    Still not sold on this story.😭 It’s a nice story though.

  41. Eric Litster says:

    Wonderful!! (Younger Nephi, and Older Jacobs beards LOL!!!)

  42. M Daley says:

    When Moses led the children of Israel through the wilderness they encountered flying fiery serpents. To save them, the Lord told Moses to fashion a serpent of brass on a pole and it was lifted up for all to see, and were told that all they had to do was look at it and be saved from death. But some refused to look because it was too simple; that it couldn’t possibly be the cure, and many perished.
    The Book of Mormon today is like the brass serpent of old. It’s been lifted up to the world to see but many tell themselves that it can’t possibly be a cure; it’s simply not worth the time; it’s too simple.
    Compared to a lifetime, a three to four weeks worth of time to read the book will sadly be too much time for many.
    For people truly seeking the truth in a downward spiraling world, they will take the time to read it and be saved.
    Please take the time!

  43. Benjamin Durgin says:

    I cant wait until 3 Nephi and the coming of christ.

  44. latitudenorth says:

    Amazing video. Thanks for sharing!

  45. hoolarzf says:

    these videos have the same power of feelings that shows in the Joseph Smith building like Legacy, The testament, etc. I think is time to keep the commandments.

  46. Christy Gruber says:

    At about 3:26 into the video. What did one of the boys whisper? And was Nephi shouting something when he came running earlier?

  47. hrh neenerita says:

    Loved it, my only problem is that it is just to short,

  48. bigbog442 says:

    I wish the videos were longer.

  49. Jaelle Kaylor says:

    I never thought about the fact that the cousins and sister in laws etc , the family basically, would be sad leaving each other. I guess I always imagined that everyone was angry with each other… but it makes so much sense now and my heart just hurts for them. I'm so thankful for the examples in the Book of Mormon, and how it teaches me and my family how to live and how to avoid certain things also. These videos have made it so real to me, I love reading from the BoM even more now, and I never thought that would be possible !!!!

  50. Rob Sin says:

    The happiness that we all strive for.🙏🙏

  51. cumomsandcureloms says:

    Laman and Lemuel are already dressing differently, a little bit like Indians

  52. E es media es was cher media es wascher gov Job says:

    Mí historia es lehi s familia mí hijo y hijas. Lo testificó con el poder de Jehová

  53. History of the LDS Saints says:

    Interesting that the MC2 theory shows up in the production. The heartland model is being discarded even though Jospeh Smith himself prophecied literally dozens of times about the remnate of the lamenites being in the heartland. There was no 2 hill camora theory from ANY of the Q15 in 1835. Archeological evidence and DNA all prove a migration from north America to mezo america. Go ahead and read the Nauvoo council of fifty minutes volume of the Joseph Smith papers and tell me north America isn't where the BOM took place. Even nonmormon historians and researchers will tell you the BOM has north american native American folklore and perceived histories littered throughout.

  54. iterum nata says:

    Solomon's temple was 180 feet long, 90 feet wide, and 50 feet high, took 7 years to build by over 180K workers. How is it possible that the Nephites, after having separated from the Lamanites and with no more than 50 people could construct a similar temple within 30 years after their arrival in America?
    Galatians 1:6-9
    Matthew 7:15

  55. Techis God says:

    How does this sound to you? What if I took a 940 nanometer wavelength, 2000 Petawatt, Cutting LASER and blasted my family from orbit?

  56. Shawn Reed says:

    Interesting how much Jewish DNA and language they have found amongst the so called contemporary Lamanites.

  57. Joshua Smith says:

    "And we lived after the manner of happiness." There is a lot to that quote.

  58. Joshua Smith says:

    Lots of great insight in this one!

  59. The Pun Master! says:

    Thank you for these videos now I understand well about the Nephites and. the Lamanites, hoping for more videos to come, I love the BOM another testament of Jesus Christ.

  60. Jared Meyer says:

    these are so inspiring.

  61. Codetski Jaigobin says:

    It must have been so Hard for the Children, They were still Filled with Love Towards Another not Hate.

  62. Devon Kenyon says:

    This was so good. Why only 8 minutes?!? More please 😇

  63. Klinton says:

    There are some issues with the English captions in this vid. A lot of grammatical or punctuation errors that could make it difficult to watch. Can you help?

  64. MarquezTHE Loyal says:

    I am waiting for alma 😂

  65. Jack Livigni says:

    What a wonderful achievement! All the artists involved – actors, music, filming – have done such a magnificent job! I am always so very touched by how the sacred content of The Book of Mormon has been brought to this medium in such a thoughtful and touching way. Thank you all involved!!

  66. Robbie Isbell says:

    Whoa…the closed captions are a mess! Someone needs to fix it!

  67. Alasdair Wright says:

    How will the grteat storm of 3 Nephi 8:5 be filmed? This destruction goes from that of v6 onwards.

  68. Helios Higgins says:

    Why do they make the "background music" SO LOUD? It overpowers the actual point, the account as written by Nephi…

  69. Jonathan Mendoza says:

    2 Nephi 5:27
    "And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness."

    After all the trials and challenges that we've encountered , we may be blessed and have a peace living with our family as we tried our best to seperate ourselves into the wicked things. :))

  70. TJ Edwards says:

    Ehh… incorrect timing and context for those words of Nephi… but whatever.

  71. TJ Edwards says:

    Nephi knew literally from the beginning of the journey that the seed of his brethren would be separated. I can imagine the only thing keeping them together was Lehi. And the moment he was gone they separated. Laman had murderous intentions from the beginning.

  72. Stephen Hall Jr says:

    Subtitles On This Were Really Bad Off!

  73. David Lee says:

    Is this the chapter when God curses the lamanites with the dark skin so they wouldn't mix with the seed of Nephi? I believe this is where we believe the American Indian evolved from correct?

  74. Thomas Choate says:

    Where’s the “skin of blackness” that God cursed the Lamanites with?

  75. Thomas Choate says:

    There is no evidence that Pre-Columbian American people made steel. The Book of Mormon is not historical.

  76. Abelhawk says:

    I never thought about how hard it would've been for the kids. Nephi's and Laman's children were probably best friends, and they had no idea why they had to just up and leave and never see their cousins again.

  77. Walternate says:

    When I watch these I often think—I probably won’t ever be like Nephi, who is a spiritual giant among men with unfailing faith, but I can be like Sam and follow Nephi.

  78. Zenos Villondo says:

    Aw snap, I would never have thought that it would be difficult to separate the family, especially the cousins and sisters, and never have see each other again

  79. Zenos Villondo says:

    And that’s a wrap on young Nephi! You did so awesome!!!!!

  80. recyclenowforlife says:

    I now suppose that the reason why Laman and Lemuel did not pursue them is that they probably did not have the support of their wives and children. And even the families of Ishmael might have had mixed feelings.

  81. Blake Pulsipher says:

    At 6:17 that’s my brother Kyle building the temple and chopping the wood.

  82. A. R. Larson says:

    Can anyone explain me verse 21 from this chapter? It says lamanites were cursed with a skin of blackness. The Lord separated them from the nephites with a different kind of color?

  83. LittleLotte1410 says:

    This video with the ever so brief mention of Zoram and the sword of Laban makes me yearn to know more about who Zoram was, how he came to be in Laban's servitude, what that was like for him, etc. He's really one of those unsung heroes of the BoM because we know so little of him, yet he was always there doing what the Lord wanted with nary a complaint as far as we know.

  84. Yolanda says:

    The subtitles are so messed up!

  85. Brad King says:

    Guess they skipped over the whole "as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them." thing.
    Probably best to keep the racist parts out.

  86. Mike says:

    Nephites segregate from the Lamanites. Sounds like the history of the mormon church alright. Just a lot of hate.

  87. Lucky Liahona says:


  88. Sezz Wick says:

    R.I.P young nephi

  89. Julie Watt says:

    I am loving the Book of Mormon even more thanks to these wonderful videos. I am really feeling what Nephi and his family went through both emotionally and physically – thank you

  90. Kelly Smith says:

    If you are ever feeling down, just quote this scripture over and over again and then apply it to your life. It’s right after Nephi calls himself wretched and this helps him recognize his true self: 2 Nephi 4:28 Awake, my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, and give place no more for the enemy of my soul.

  91. Nehumi Onetaka says:

    I’m curious to know if the book of ether will be produced?

  92. hans says:

    I look forward to the time when all of the videos are available and I can watch as much as I want.

  93. Stach Rogalski says:


  94. Timotheus157 says:

    Nephi was a good man. Too bad his two wicked brothers were so foolish and rebellious against godly things.

  95. Lieta F says:

    I know the Book of Mormon to be true,to be the word of God,it has helped me think of Christ and always trying to be good and always choose the righy everytime I read it,I invite you all to read it and pray about it and ask God if its true,then you will know what I mean. As a convert to this great Gosple as a devouted Catholic,I have no doubt about this great truth.

  96. Festus Paul says:

    Me watching this video i felt the spirit,About serving a mission and like leaving your family and loved ones.
    This video really encourages me like a lot

  97. Steve Kinlichee says:

    When they first came upon the Land of Nephi and overlooking the valley, it reminded me of another event a couple of thousands years later…when someone said, overlooking another valley, "This is the right place, drive on!" 🙂

  99. Ben Megee says:

    Wow. The movie makes it even more believable!!! Not!!! What a bunch of crap.

  100. TJ Butler says:

    I found this doctrine from MORmON History could someone tell me if it is true or not? "PRESIDENT NEILSON'S FIRST VISION"…. For it cum to pass… four I scored and eight many polygamous years ago, MORmON Land "Utah" became destitute of "True Religion" until a man, an angelic man from the heavens, known as "Captain Boner Eye" would deliver the truth once again. A righteous scroll in hand that was hung like a donkey, two seer stones lacheted in a wrinkly purse.

    The Angelic being began to speak to me. "Elder Nelson, I am Captain Boner Eye, I have cum to restore the Gosballs to the MORmON Church! Please Sucker them well as there is much suck to be given. The glory is great and well hung over you! Cum and feast upon the glory that you may know the truth that lies within!"

    So, it cum to pass that I did eat and partake of the great suck!

    The angelic being spoke to me like a well used harlot, "Bro Nelly shall be your new name! I deliver the power and glory you have so desired and prayed so fervently for! On your knees I Beseech thee move ye hense from the dirt that proceed the Seer Balls and sucker no more about the Rim of darkness!"

    And I, "Bro Nelly commenced to the Seer Balls and formed spectacles in which to interpret the mighty shaft of a scroll by the gift and glory of this heavenly being! I commenced a yanking, spanking, tugging, swallowing, sucking until I could interpret no more, with a little jiggle and jangle of the wrinkly sack and a loud belch the true Gosballs of MORmONISM exploded forth!
    I in a stupor of a mess, glued to the ground in emmense spooging truth, I knew what I had seen and done! I knew from that day forth my name would be had for the lying good and evil of The MORmON Church!"

    Captain Boner Eye spoke again to me saying, "Bro Nelly! from this day forth you shall be the Head of the church, the apostles the shaft and thy servants as chafe around the stones and tithes that stinketh as dirt be thy foundation from this day forth!"

    Praise be the Prophet Nelly! And they did feast and partake as "THE TRUE GOSBALLS HAD BEEN RESTORED!"…… I ASSUME THIS IS REAL DOCTRINE! ANYBODY?????
