During Samuel’s prophetic warning to the Nephites, he declared that the Lamanites were a people whom the Lord “hath hated.” While modern readers may find this language to be unusually harsh, in the ancient world the terms “love” and “hate” had less to do with emotion and more to do with a vassal’s covenantal relationship with a lord.
