Book of Mormon. The son of Jarom, the Book of Omni is named after him, though he is not credited with writing the entire book. Omni is most noted for keeping the Small Plates of Nephi. Omni's record is recorded over several years, between 323 B.C. and 319 B.C. or essentially, as he marks it, 282 years since the family of Lehi had arrived in the promise land. He makes a small annotation at the beginning of the book of Omni where he tells of the many wars he fought as a Nephite against the Lamanites. He also confesses that he is a wicked man. He concludes his annotations by giving his record to his son Amaron.
