A glaring example of dialog clumsiness in the Book of Mormon

It’s impossible to imagine these words being etched into metal plates without forethought. It’s obvious that Joseph Smith’s oral dictation stumbles through these verses in a telling and self-damning manner:

“And behold, in the end of this book ye shall see that this Gadianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi. Behold I do not mean the end of the book of Helaman, but I mean the end of the book of Nephi, from which I have taken all the account which I have written.”

~Helaman 2:13-14~
