Passage: Mosiah 9:156 - Mosiah 9:166

156 Nevertheless, the Lord did hear their cries and began to soften the hearts of the Lamanites, that they began to ease their burdens; Yet the Lord did not see fit to deliver them out of bondage.
157 And it came to pass that they began to prosper by degrees in the land, And began to raise grain more abundantly and flocks and herds, that they did not suffer with hunger.
158 Now there was a great number of women, more than there was of men; Therefore, King Limhi commanded that every man should impart to the support of the widows and their children, that they might not perish with hunger; And this they did because of the greatness of their number that had been slain.

165 And had they been the priests of Noah, he would have caused that they should be put to death; But when he found that they were not, but that they were his brethren and had come from the Land of Zarahemla, he was filled with exceeding great joy.
166 Now King Limhi had sent, previous to the coming of Ammon, a small number of men to search for the Land of Zarahemla, but they could not find it and they were lost in the wilderness;
