Joseph Obtains the Plates from Moroni

Joseph obtains the plates from Moroni, and the sacred record passes from immortal to mortal hands. "On the twenty-second day of September, one thousand eight hundred and twenty-seven, having gone as usual at the end of another year to the place where they were deposited, the same heavenly messenger delivered them up to me with this charge: that I should be responsible for them; that if I should let them go carelessly, or through any neglect of mine, I should be cut off; but that if I would use all my endeavors to preserve them, until he, the messenger, should call for them, they should be protected" (https://www.lds.org/scriptures/pgp/js-h/1.59?lang=eng#58 )
