Verse 16:28[edit]

I have deleted the following statement because I think it is incorrect and have written something that I believe accords more closely with the text of 1 Ne 16:23-28 and the fact of Lehi's preaching and prophetic blessings in 2 Nephi 1-4: Nephi did not get answer where to go to get food from his dad, Lehi. He got it from Liahona. The mantle has passed from Lehi to Nephi. Lehi no doubt forgiven but his exalted status as Prophet is over. He'd had visions and yet murmured. He's done and doesn't contribute much else in leadership.
