Jacob 2

Here we find the first of many examples of the Nephites meeting with prosperity, followed by pride over their clothing (v. 13).  With the Nephites, their pride often seems to start with their clothing.  And as the Book of Mormon was written for our benefit, perhaps we should pay close attention to this.  It isn’t the clothing that’s the problem, of course – it’s the pride.  Jacob begs his people (and us) to not allow “this pride of your hearts to destroy your souls!” (v. 16).
