On September 22, 1827, Joseph Smith
a youthful resident of Manchester, N.
Y.. took from the side of a hill in that
vicinity a book made up of thin leaves
of beaten gold, held together by rings
after the fashion of our modern loose
leaf records. As . described by the
finder, and by others to whom they
were shown, these golden leaves or
plates were engraved with fine char
acters having all the appearance
ancient and curious workmanship.
The engraved plates had been laid
away with care and attention to
preservation; for, when uncovered, they
were found, together with certain other
antique objects, resting in a small vault
or box of stone. "The box in which
they lay," wrote Joseph Smith, "was
formed by laying stones together in
some kind of cement. In the bottom of
the box were laid two stones cross
ways ot the box, and on these stones
lay the plates and the other things
with them." The top slab or lid of the
box. "was thick and rounding in the
middle on the upper, side, and thinner
toward the edges, ro that the middle
part of it was visible above the ground,
but . the edge all around was covered
As subsequent examination proved
the- graven characters were of the
Egyptian type, and the writing consti
tuted a history of the aboriginal peo
pies of the Western Continent, of whom
the existing tribes of American In
dians are the lineal posterity. A part
of the ancient record has been trans
lated into English and the modern ver
sion was first published In 1830 as The
Book of Mormon. Since that time .edi
tions have been multiplied, and the
book is now printed in every modern
language of prominence, and in several
of the, more primitive tongues still
spoken on the isles of the sea. Many
millions of copies have been issued,' and
the book is easily accessible.
The Book of Mormon is an abrldg
ment of the writings of a long succes
sion of scribes; and the compilation
was . deposited by Moroni, the last of
the recorders, about 420 A. D., after he
had attested with his own hand the
genuineness of the record. He' laid it
away in the prepared receptacle of
stone and cement, on the side of the
hill known to him and his people, as
Cumorah and currently called "Mor
mon Hill'" by" the people of the vicinity
in and about Palmyra and Manches
ter, New York.
The Book of Mormon contains pointed
and specific predictions of its own
coming forth in the latter days; and
these prophecies harmonize with the
Biblical Scriptures. The ancient peo
ples whose voice Is again heard among
the living were of ttie tribes of Ephralm
and Manasseh, and therefore or tne
family of Joseph, son of Jacob. With
this fact in mind, the thoughtful stu
dent finds profound significance in the
otherwise obscure words of Ezeklel
.(37:15-20): The .word of the Lord came
again onto me, saying. Moreover, thou
and of nan, take thee one stick, and
write npon. For Judah, and for the
children of Israel his compnnlonsi then
take another stick, and write upon. For
Josrph, the stick of Fphralm, and fur
all the house of Israel his companlonsi
And Join them one to another Into one
slick) and they shall become one In
To the puzzled questioners who would
ask the meaning of all this, the prophet
was told to dflare the Lord's purpose
in this wise: "Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold. I will take the stick of Jo
seph, which is in the hand of Ephraim,
and the tribes of Israel his fellows,
and will put them with him, even with
the stick of Judah, and make them one
stick, and they shall be one in mine
Plainly the record of Judah, which
we recognize as the Holy Bible, was to
be supplemented by the record of Jo
seph; and the bringing forth of the lat
ter was to be effected by the direct
exercise of divine power, for the Lord
said "I will take the stick of Joseph":
and of the two He averred "they shall
be one In mine hand," even as the pro
totypes had become one In the hand of
If the testimony of scholars as to
Biblical chronology be reliable, Lehi
and his colony had already crossed the
great waters and become well estab
lished In America when Ezekiel voiced
this significant prophecy concerning
the "stick" or record of Joseph as be
ing distinct from that of Judah. The
prediction has been fulfilled. The Holy
Bible and the Book of Mormon, the
records of Judah and Joseph respect
ively, are before the world, each at
testing the authenticity of the other.
and each standing as an Irrefutable
testimony of the atoning life, death.
and resurrection of the Lord Jesus
A century and a half earlier, Isaiah
had cried wo unto Ariel, the City of
David; and had made distinction be-
tween Judah who then occupied Ariel
or Jerusalem, and another people with
wfcom comparison is made. rote the
prediction: "And thou Shalt be brought
down, and shalt apeak out of the ,
ground, and thy speech shall be low
oat of the dust, and thy voice shall be,
as of one that hath a familiar spirit,
out of the eround, and thy speech shall
whisper out of the dost." Us a. 29:4).
The nation thus "brought down" has
spoken "out of the ground"; her speech
has come forth "out of the dust"; for
the original of the Book of Mormon
was actually taken out of the ground.
and the voice of the sacred record is
as that of one speaking from the dust -of
