Hold fast unto it

“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.”

1 Nephi 15:24

When I searched for the phrase “hold fast unto it,” I found many references to “the rope of Allah,” which is interpreted to mean the Qur’an. The people are promised that if they hold fast to this cord, they will not go astray. I like this little parallel to the “iron rod” of the Book of Mormon.
