Then Jesus spoke to Lehi again and told him that his sons would need women to marry so they could raise up offspring to serve Jesus in the promised land. He told Lehi to send his sons back to Jerusalem and bring a man named Ishmael and his family back with them to the wilderness.
So Lehi's sons traveled back to Jerusalem again despite more complaints from Laman and Lemuel. Jesus softened the hearts of Ishmael's family so they all agreed to go out into the wilderness with Lehi's sons. They traveled back and rejoined Lehi and Sariah in the wilderness, and animal sacrifices were made in thanks to Jesus.
