1 Nephi 18:11 — LeGrand Baker – “Laman and Lemuel did take me and bind me”

1 Nephi 18:11 

11 And it came to pass that Laman and Lemuel did take me and bind me with cords, and they did treat me with much harshness; nevertheless, the Lord did suffer it that he might show forth his power, unto the fulfilling of his word which he had spoken concerning the wicked.

There is a quality of sublime trust in Nephi’s statement. Only a short time before, if the brothers had even touched Nephi they would have sizzled. Now they no longer feel any reverence toward him, his calling as a prophet, or his God. They presume to prove their superiority over him by showing he does not have power to defend himself when they all ganged up on him together.
