In 1830, according to adherents of Mormonism, Joseph Smith was commanded by God to create a new "translation" of the Bible, in order to restore lost portions and correct mistranslations in the modern text. (See Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible.) At the outset of the translation Joseph received the Book of Moses through revelation.

Content

The first chapter describes an encounter between Moses, God, and Satan. This chapter was supposedly prepended to the Bible but lost through translation and omission. The encounter describes the magnificence of deity, and Moses' understanding of man's insignificance in comparison. Moses is shown the entirety of the history of the world and all that will come to pass. After this vision God leaves Moses to himself, whereupon Satan comes tempting Moses to worship him. Moses recognizes the weakness of Satan, and drives him away in the name of Christ. Afterwards, God returns to Moses and shows him the numberless worlds with numberless people that God has created. A prophecy alluding to Joseph Smith is given in the final verses.
