During scripture study today, I came across 1 Nephi 15:24
Whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.
While pondering it, a question came to mind.
What’s the difference between hearkening to the scriptures and holding fast to them? If there is no difference, why list both?
