Passage: Mosiah 11:7 - Mosiah 11:17

7 But he saith unto them: "Behold, it is not expedient that we should have a king, for thus saith the Lord: 'Ye shall not esteem one flesh above another, or one man shall not think himself above another'; Therefore I say unto you, it is not expedient that ye should have a king.
8 "Nevertheless, if it were possible that ye could always have a just man to be your king, it would be well for you to have a king;
9 But remember the iniquity of King Noah and his priests; And I, myself, was caught in a snare and did many things which were abominable in the sight of the Lord, which caused me sore repentance.
10 "Nevertheless, after much tribulation the Lord did hear my cries and did answer my prayers, And hath made me an instrument in His hands in bringing so many of you to a knowledge of His truth.
11 "Nevertheless, in this I do not glory, for I am unworthy to glory of myself.
12 "And now I say unto you, as you have been oppressed by King Noah and have been in bondage to him and his priests and have been brought into iniquity by them, Therefore, ye were bound with the bands of iniquity.
13 "And now as ye have been delivered by the power of God out of these bonds,
14 Yea, even out of the hands of King Noah and his people, and also from the bonds of iniquity, Even so, I desire that ye should stand fast in this liberty wherewith ye have been made free and that ye trust no man to be a king over you,
15 And also trusting no one to be your teachers nor your ministers, except he be a man of God, walking in His ways and keeping His commandments."
16 Thus did Alma teach his people that every man should love his neighbor as himself, that there should be no contention among them.
17 And now Alma was their high priest, he being the founder of their church.
