According to the Book of Mormon, Jarom (/ˈɛr.ʌm/[1]) was a Nephite prophet, the son of the prophet Enos, who lived from about 420 BC to about 361 BC. Jarom is thought to have authored the Book of Jarom, which comprises 15 verses in the Book of Mormon.

Writings[edit]

Jarom relates that he received "revelations" and prophesied, and that there were many wars between the two Book of Mormon peoples the Nephites and the Lamanites.[2] Before his death, record keeping was handed over to his son Omni.
