Abstract

Typically, the Nephites experienced pride, wickedness, and destruction after periods of righteousness and blessings. A historical summary in Alma 62:48–51, however, shows how the Nephites avoided this pride cycle by humbling themselves before God and remembering to keep His commandments. The chiastic structure of these passages emphasizes this important spiritual solution in a profound and memorable way.
