In Mosiah 4:9, King Benjamin first stated that his people should “believe in God” (Mosiah 4:9). He then told them three specific things that they should believe about God. This layout, found in the Old Testament, helps to show that Benjamin’s three statements explain what it means to “believe in God.” This passage also serves as a summary of what Benjamin had already told the people, and paraphrases Isaiah 55:8–9. Taken together, these points reminds the reader that a nebulous belief in God cannot produce the intense kind of faith needed for salvation. Knowing the attributes of God that King Benjamin described allows people to trust Him more completely.
