"According to the Instructions of the Lord.," Ether 2

Ether 2

From the introduction of this chapter I learn that the account here in is of a man who talked with the Lord. I might want to note what brought him up to that point.

Vs. 8 - To emphasize the importance of the promise land, the Lord swore in his wrath unto the brother of Jared that those that possess it shall only serve the true and  everlasting God or should be destroyed.

Vs. 10 - The promises of the land are repeated and vs. 11 explains why -- that we might repent before we become ripe in iniquity.

Vs. 12 - The key to keeping this a free land is to serve the only true and living God, Jesus Christ.
In desiring to be visited of the Lord, I read vs. 14. The Lord visited Mohonri to chastise him for not praying. 

Vs. 16 - The Lord showed Mohonri how to build a boat. He gave them the exact instruction to create a ship in a style so unknown by man but that was superior to anything man could make.
...Could not the Lord lead you in your own pursuits of life, if you let him.

Vs. 18 - the end
Mohonri and the Lord are conversing one with another. The Lord gave him a commandment and then Mohonri executed it. And while in the process he consulted with the Lord as he made progress and came into problems.
