Amaleki, having no son and %E2%80%9Cknowing king Benjamin to be a just man before the Lord%E2%80%9D (Omni 1:25), turned the small plates of Nephi over to him, bringing the separate religious record to a close because now one man was both prophet and king, recording all events on the large plates. Then, for an all-too-short period of time%E2%80%94until the end of the reign of his son, Mosiah II%E2%80%94there is a great %E2%80%9Cgolden age,%E2%80%9D a time when the ancient ideal is realized of uniting power and righteousness in a single leader to form a theocracy, that perfect but difficult and extremely rare form of government we have seen under Enoch, Abraham, Moses, and in modern times for a while under Brigham Young.
