A group of people in the Book of Mormon, many of whom were descendants of the prophet Nephi, son of Lehi. They separated from the Lamanites and were generally more righteous than the Lamanites. However, they were eventually destroyed by the Lamanites because of wickedness.
The Nephites separated from the Lamanites,
2 Ne. 5:5–17.
All those who were not Lamanites were Nephites,
The Nephites were inspired by a better cause,
Alma 43:6–9, 45.
The Nephites had never been happier than at the time of Moroni,
The Nephites were saved because of the prayers of the righteous,
The Nephites did begin to dwindle in unbelief,
Jesus taught and ministered among the Nephites,
3 Ne. 11:1–28:12.
All were converted to the Lord and had all things in common,
4 Ne. 1:2–3.
There was no contention, the love of God dwelt in their hearts, and they were the happiest of people,
4 Ne. 1:15–16.
The Nephites began to be proud and vain,
4 Ne. 1:43.
Blood and carnage spread throughout all the face of the land,
The Nephites increased in wickedness and Mormon refused to lead them,
All the Nephites, except for twenty-four, were killed,
Every Nephite who would not deny Christ was put to death,
The Nephites were destroyed because of their wickedness and sins,
Beware of pride for fear you become as the Nephites,
