It is interesting to note in the end of verse 10 that the Nephites became an exceedingly "fair and delightsome people." What warrants a people to become fair and delightsome? We know that at this time, the Nephites were all converted unto the Lord and they were walking uprightly before him. When the Nephites are filled with the spirit of the Lord and emanate the light of Christ, fair and delightsome become appropriate words to describe their state. We can follow this example in our own lives by living how the Lord would have us do and therefore, achieving this fair and delightsome state. We must always be wary, however, because becoming fair and delightsome may lead to pride and destruction which occurred with the Nephites. Always remember the Lord and we can emanate the light of Christ without falling into destructive paths.
