"And now behold, the promise of the Lord is fulfilled and ye are smitten and afflicted;
But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart and put your trust in Him, and serve Him with all diligence of mind- And if ye do this, He will, according to His own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage."

And he caused that Ammon should stand up before the multitude and rehearse unto them all that had happened unto their brethren from the time that Zeniff went up out of the land, even until the time that he himself came up out of the land;
