Mormon’s expression of gratitude in this chapter is quite interesting, because he currently faced the destruction of his entire people. Though he might have hoped for miraculous salvation, he must have understood from the records he was keeping that this deliverance was very unlikely to come. And yet, though he faced destruction himself he still expressed gratitude that another people four hundred years earlier had been delivered in the way that he would not be delivered.
What faith and understanding (and, frankly, charity) this demonstrated.
