Lehi searches the plates of brass. 

1:157 [5:9] And it came to pass that they did rejoice exceedingly and did offer sacrifice and burnt offerings unto the Lord; and they gave thanks unto the God of Israel.
1:158 [5:10] And after they had given thanks unto the God of Israel, my father Lehi took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and he did search them from the beginning.
1:159 [5:11a] And he beheld that they did contain the five books of Moses, which gave an account of the creation of the world,
1:160 [5:11b] And also of Adam and Eve, who was our first parents,
1:161 [5:12] And also a record of the Jews from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah,
1:162 [5:13a] And also the prophecies of the holy prophets, from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah,
1:163 [5:13b] And also many prophecies which have been spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah.
1:164 [5:14a] ¶ And it came to pass that my father Lehi also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of his fathers;
1:165 [5:14b] Wherefore, he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph, yea, even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt and who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his father Jacob and all his household from perishing with famine.
1:166 [5:15] And they were also led out of captivity and out of the land of Egypt by that same God who had preserved them.
1:167 [5:16a] And thus my father Lehi did discover the genealogy of his fathers.
1:168 [5:16b] And Laban also was a descendant of Joseph; wherefore, he and his fathers had kept the records.
1:169a [5:17] ¶ And now, when my father saw all these things, he was filled with the Spirit and began to prophesy concerning his seed—
1:169b [5:18] That these plates of brass should go forth unto all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people who were of his seed.
1:170 [5:19a] Wherefore, he said that these plates of brass should never perish, neither should they be dimmed any more by time.
1:171 [5:19b] And he prophesied many things concerning his seed.
1:172 [5:20] ¶ And it came to pass that, thus far, I and my father had kept the commandments wherewith the Lord had commanded us.
1:173 [5:21] And we had obtained the records which the Lord had commanded us, and searched them, and found that they were desirable, yea, even of great worth unto us, insomuch that we could preserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children.
1:174 [5:12] Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us as we journeyed in the wilderness towards the land of promise.
