1st Nephi 2 : 11
Now this he spake because of the stiffneckedness of Laman and Lemuel; for behold they did murmur in many things against their father, because he was a visionary man, and had led them out of the land of Jerusalem, to leave the land of their inheritance, and their gold, and their silver, and their precious things, to perish in the wilderness. And this they said he had done because of the foolish imaginations of his heart.
Dad put on this whole show to encourage Laman and Lemuel to straighten up. And it worked. For about forty-five minutes. After that they fell back into their favorite hobbies which included whining about leaving their sweet stuff and generally trying to convince everyone they were going to die in the desert thanks to Dad's crazy notion to live like a nomad.
