"The Things Which I Have Sealed Up," Ether 5

Ether 5

Vs. 1 - Moroni had written down all that is found in chapter 4 from memory. How clear was his intelligence, his recollection.

Look at this! "I have told you the things which I have sealed up; therefore touch them not in order that ye may translate;"

There was a part of the plates that was sealed up. Moroni just said he told us what is on them according to his memory. So it was a summary that we have. Of what though?

It's also interesting to note that it was Moroni who sealed up that part of the Book of Mormon. So what we have now is literally what Mormon and Moroni  were commanded of the Lord to write.

Vs. 4 - Is there no power in the Book of Mormon? Most definitely there is. By the power of this book will all the world be judged at the Last Day. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost all testify of the Book of Mormon.
