is a character briefly mentioned in the Book of Mormon
. In the Book of Ether
, Kib is noted as the first king of the Jaredite
people to be overthrown. His son Corihor
rebelled against him at 32. After gathering enough dissenters, Corihor overthrew his father and sent him to live in captivity. While there, Kib had another child named Shule
. As Shule got older, he gathered an army, which overthrew Corihor and put Kib back on the throne. Kib was much older in age at this time however, and so out of gratitude for what Shule had done, Kib granted unto him to be king.
Kib is also noted in the genealogy of Ether listed in the first chapter of the Book of Ether as being the father of Shule and the son of Orihah.
