A Riddle Tricky

The following riddle has two answers. (Hint: One is a name; the other is much simpler.)

I am one amidst six brothers. Without me there would be no golden plates, no sword of Laban, no Book of Mormon. I’m repeated four times in the book’s table of contents. You remember me every time you say, “I will go and do.” I worked in ore and made tools. I built a boat. So you won’t find me in Jerusalem—I live in a land of promise.
