Lehi, a prophet in Jerusalem, receives direction from God that Jerusalem will be destroyed because of the wickedness of the people. He attempts to warn the citizens of Jerusalem, but they instead try to kill him. The Lord then directs Lehi to flee into the wilderness with his wife, Sariah, and his four sons—Laman, Lemuel, Sam, and Nephi. The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
