Three men named Zoram are noted in the Book of Mormon. The first Zoram was the servant of Laban, a Jewish commander in Jerusalem about 600 B.C. (1 Ne. 3:31). This Zoram gave the disguised Nephi the plates of brass thinking he was Laban. Offered freedom if he would become part of Nephi's group in the wilderness, Zoram accepted Nephi's offer and made an oath to stay with them from that time on (1 Ne. 4:20-38). He married one of the daughters of Ishmael (1 Ne. 16:7), was a true friend to Nephi, was blessed by Nephi's father Lehi (2 Ne. 1:30-32), and went with Nephi when the Nephite colony separated from the Lamanites after Lehi's death (2 Ne. 5:5-6). His descendants were called Zoramites.
