In the Book of Mormon, a son of Enos and a great-grandson of Lehi. He kept the Nephites’ records for sixty years, 420–361 B.C. (Enos 1:25; Jarom 1:13). He was a faithful man who chose to not write very much in the historical record (Jarom 1:2).

The book of Jarom

There are only fifteen verses in this book in the Book of Mormon. Jarom recorded that the Nephites continued to live the law of Moses and look forward to the coming of Christ. They were led by kings who were mighty men of faith. They prospered as they heeded their prophets, priests, and teachers.
