“Missing Prophecies of Abinadi and Samuel the Lamanite in the Book of Mormon”

From the Book of Mormon:
Mormon 1:19 And it came to pass that there were sorceries, and witchcrafts, and magics; and the power of the evil one was wrought upon all the face of the land, even unto the fulfilling of all the words of Abinadi, and also Samuel the Lamanite.

Except that we don’t have these prophecies of Abinadi and Samuel the Lamanite in the abridged edition (what we have now)!

We do have clear mention that they said more that wasn’t written, and it even fits in the right areas of their other prophecies:

Abinadi: Mosiah 12:8 And it shall come to pass that except they repent I will utterly destroy them from off the face of the earth; yet they shall leave a record behind them, and I will preserve them for other nations which shall possess the land; yea, even this will I do that I may discover the abominations of this people to other nations. And many things did Abinadi prophesy against this people.

Samuel the Lamanite: Helaman 14:1 AND now it came to pass that Samuel, the Lamanite, did prophesy a great many more things which cannot be written.

Still, Mormon puts the fulfilling of the prophecies in, which is an important purpose of the Book of Mormon.
