Steal, Stealing To take something from another dishonestly or unlawfully. The Lord has always commanded His children to not steal (Ex. 20:15; Matt. 19:18; 2 Ne. 26:32; Mosiah 13:22; D&C 59:6). Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where thieves do not break through nor steal, Matt. 6:19–21. The Nephites’ defeats came because of pride, riches, plundering, stealing, Hel. 4:12. He that stealeth and will not repent shall be cast out, D&C 42:20. Those who steal shall be delivered up unto the law of the land, D&C 42:84–85.
