How the Book of Mormon Was Translated
"And we know, also, that they have been translated by the gift and power of God."-The "Three Witnesses."

"The tablets, or plates were translated by Smith, who used a small oval, or kidney-shaped stone, called Urim and Thummim, that seemed endowed with the marvelous power of converting the characters on the plates, when used by Smith, into English."-David Whitmer.

"By aid of the seer-stone, sentences would appear and were read by the prophet . . . so that the translation was just as it was engraven on the plates, precisely in the language then used."-Martin Harris.
