6:1 I won’t give a genealogy of my fathers in my record or on these plates because it is already written in the record kept by my father.
6:2 It is sufficient to say that we are descendants of Joseph.
6:3 On these plates I will leave room to write the things of God and not a detailed account of my father’s life, for my intent is to persuade all to come unto God.
6:4 My motivation is to bring all people unto God and salvation.
6:5 I will not write the things which are of the world, but that which is of God and for those who are not of the world.
6:6 I will also recommend to my posterity not to occupy these plates with things that are not of eternal worth.
