2ND NEPHI 13:3. The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
2ND NEPHI 13:4. And I will give children unto them to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

2ND NEPHI 13:24. And it shall come to pass, instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle, a rent; and instead of well set hair, baldness; and instead of a stomacher, a girding of sackcloth; burning instead of beauty.
2ND NEPHI 13:25. Thy men shall fall by the sword and thy mighty in the war.
