I find it amazing that after all that Nephi faces concerning opposition from his brethren, he only advises them to “worship the Lord thy god, and honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy god shall give thee”. (1 Nephi 17) In other words, he quotes two of the ten commandments: Worship the Lord, thy God; and Honor thy Father and thy Mother. (Exodus 20: 2-6; 12) Nephi has so much self-control. What an example of faith!
This is what I previously wrote after reading 1 Nephi 17: The Lord Is Our Deliverer
