Samuel the Lamanite has come to Zarahemla to preach to the Nephites. After many days, he is rejected by the people and cast out. The Lord commands him to return and say to the people whatever words enter into his heart. After being forbidden entry into the city, Samuel climbs upon the wall to address the people.
Samuel then identifies the wickedness among the Nephites-their love of riches, pride, malice and persecutions. He calls them to repent and prophesies their destruction if they do not return to the Lord. Samuel prophesies of the Savior’s birth with many signs including a new star in the sky and a day, a night and a day without darkness. He prophesies that at the Savior’s death their will be three days of darkness with many natural disasters which will change the entirety of the land.
