May we be as Lehi, and search the scriptures, and find the blessings of the Lord therein.
"And after they had given thanks unto the God of Israel, my father,
Lehi, took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and
he did search them from the beginning.
And he beheld that they did contain the five books of Moses, which gave
an account of the creation of the world, and also of Adam and Eve, who
were our first parents;
And also a record of the Jews from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah;
And also the
prophecies of the holy prophets, from the beginning, even down to the
commencement of the reign of Zedekiah; and also many prophecies which
have been spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah.
And it came to pass
that my father, Lehi, also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of
his fathers; wherefore he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph; yea,
even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt, and
who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his
father, Jacob, and all his household from perishing with famine.
And they were also led out of captivity and out of the land of Egypt, by that same God who had preserved them.
And thus my father, Lehi, did discover the genealogy of his fathers. " (1 Nephi 5:10-16 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/5.10-16 )
