"Surely The Lord Hath Commanded Us", 1 Nephi 4: 18-38

1 Nephi 4: 18-38

When the servant of Laban discovers that he had been deceived and that his master was in fact dead, he was filled with fear and attempted to flee from Nephi and his brothers. Nephi, after exerting his physical strength upon Zoram, comforts him by explaining to Zoram their situation, covenanting with him, and then ultimately assuring him that they are being obedient to the Lord. These things gave Zoram courage to take his journey with them.

That Nephi and his brothers were successful at persuading others to come along with them, Zoram and later on Ishmael and his family, is evidence of the reality of their situation at Jerusalem.
