“Book of Mormon: Samuel the Lamanite on Prophets and False Prophets”

In Helaman 13, Samuel the Lamanite says:
24 Yea, wo unto this people, because of this time which has arrived, that ye do cast out the prophets, and do mock them, and cast stones at them, and do slay them, and do all manner of iniquity unto them, even as they did of old time.
26 Behold ye are worse than they; for as the Lord liveth, if a prophet come among you and declareth unto you the word of the Lord, which testifieth of your sins and iniquities, ye are angry with him, and cast him out and seek all manner of ways to destroy him; yea, you will say that he is a false prophet, and that he is a sinner, and of the devil, because he testifieth that your deeds are evil.

References of these in the Book of Mormon:

Cast out the prophets
–Alma 8:13, Alma 14:3, Alma 14:7-8, Helaman 12:2

Mock them
–Mosiah 13:1, Alma 14:20-21

Cast stones at them
–Alma 14:7, Helaman 16:2

Slay them
–Mosiah 13:1, 2; Helaman 8:19, Helaman 9:24, Helaman 16:2, 3 Nephi 1:16, 3 Nephi 6:23, 4 Nephi 1:30-33

Ye are angry with him
–Alma 9:32, Alma 10:24, Alma 14:2-3, Helaman 9:24, Helaman 16:2, 3 Nephi 6:21, 3 Nephi 7:18, 20

Seek all manner of ways to destroy him
–Alma 10:13, Alma 11:25, Alma 14:2, Helaman 8:1-5, 10; Helaman 9:24, Helaman 16:6-7, 4 Nephi 1:30-33

Say he is a false prophet
–Jacob 7:7, Mosiah 12:13-14, Alma 9:4, Alma 30:14

Say he is a sinner
–Alma 10:28, Alma 14:2, Alma 54:22

Say he is of the devil
–Alma 10:28, Alma 15:15, Helaman 16:6, 3 Nephi 2:2

27 But behold, if a man shall come among you and shall say: Do this, and there is no iniquity; do that and ye shall not suffer; yea, he will say: Walk after the pride of your own hearts; yea, walk after the pride of your eyes, and do whatsoever your heart desireth—and if a man shall come among you and say this, ye will receive him, and say that he is a prophet.
28 Yea, ye will lift him up, and ye will give unto him of your substance; ye will give unto him of your gold, and of your silver, and ye will clothe him with costly apparel; and because he speaketh flattering words unto you, and he saith that all is well, then ye will not find fault with him.

References in the Book of Mormon:
Love false prophets, give them riches: Mosiah 11:5+, Alma 1:3-6, Alma 30:17, Helaman 6:38
