For the Israeli village, see Aminadav.

Aminadab is mentioned in Helaman 5:34-41. He is said to have been a righteous Nephite. However, evidently he fell away from the Church, and became associated with the Lamanites, as a guard in their prisons.

In the Book of Helaman, after Nephi had given up the Chief Judgment Seat to Cezoram, he and his brother Lehi went to the land of Zarahemla to preach the Gospel to the Lamanites. They are taken prisoners by the Lamanites, and kept under guard.

The Lamanite Prisons

One day it is said that angels came and wrapped Nephi and Lehi in fire, while all around them is total darkness. The Lamanite guards wonder what is going on, and Aminadab tells them "They do converse with the angels of God". When they ask him how they too might be visited by the angels of God, he told them "You must repent, and cry unto the voice, even until ye shall have faith in Christ".

From the verses following, it is assumed that he also prayed in faith, had his body encircled about with fire, and became converted again to the Gospel.
