Mosiah 13:1 And now when the king had heard these words, he said unto his priests: Away with this fellow and slay him! For what have we to do with him?--for he is mad!
Mosiah 13:2 And they stood forth and attempted to lay their hands on him, but he withstood them and said unto them:
Mosiah 13:3 Touch me not! For God shall smite you if ye lay your hands upon me, for I have not delivered the message which the Lord sent me to deliver, neither have I told you that which ye requested that I should tell. Therefore God will not suffer that I shall be destroyed at this time.
Mosiah 13:4 But I must fulfill the commandments wherewith God hath commanded me. And because I have told you the truth, ye are angry with me. And again, because I have spoken the word of God, ye have judged me that I am mad.
Mosiah 13:5 Now it came to pass after Abinadi had spoken these words that the people of king Noah durst not lay their hands on him, for the Spirit of the Lord was upon him. And his face shone with exceeding luster even as Moses' did while in the mount of Sinai while speaking with the Lord.
Mosiah 13:6 And he spake with power and authority from God. And he continued his words, saying:
Mosiah 13:7 Ye see that ye have not power to slay me. Therefore I finish my message. Yea, and I perceive that it cuts you to your hearts because I tell you the truth concerning your iniquities.
Mosiah 13:8 Yea, and my words fill you with wonder and amazement and with anger.
Mosiah 13:9 But I finish my message, and then it matters not whither I go, if it so be that I am saved.
Mosiah 13:10 But this much I tell you: What you do with me after this shall be as a type and a shadow of things which is to come.
Mosiah 13:11 And now I read unto you the remainder of the commandments of God, for I perceive that they are not written in your hearts. I perceive that ye have studied and taught iniquity the most part of your lives.

Mosiah 13:18 but the seventh day, the sabbath of the Lord thy God, thou shalt not do any work, thou nor thy son nor thy daughter, thy manservant nor thy maidservant nor thy cattle nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Mosiah 13:25 And it came to pass that after Abinadi had made an end of these sayings that he said unto them: Have ye taught this people that they should observe to do all these things, for to keep these commandments?
Mosiah 13:26 I say unto you: Nay. For if ye had, the Lord would not have caused me to come forth and to prophesy evil concerning this people.
Mosiah 13:27 And now ye have said that salvation cometh by the law of Moses. I say unto you that it is expedient that ye should keep the law of Moses as yet; but I say unto you that the time shall come when it shall no more be expedient to keep the law of Moses.
Mosiah 13:28 And moreover I say unto you that salvation doth not come by the law alone. And were it not for the atonement which God himself shall make for the sins and iniquities of his people that they must unavoidably perish, notwithstanding the law of Moses.
Mosiah 13:29 And now I say unto you that it was expedient that there should be a law given to the children of Israel, yea, even a very strict law. For they were a stiffnecked people, quick to do iniquity and slow to remember the Lord their God.
Mosiah 13:30 Therefore there was a law given them, yea, a law of performances and of ordinances, a law which they were to observe strictly from day to day to keep them in remembrance of God and their duty towards him.
Mosiah 13:31 But behold, I say unto you that all these things were types of things to come.
Mosiah 13:32 And now, did they understand the law? I say unto you: Nay, they did not all understand the law—and this because of the hardness of their hearts. For they understood not that there could not any man be saved except it were through the redemption of God.
