And it came to pass that Amulon did plead with the Lamanites, And he also sent forth their wives, which were the daughters of the Lamanites, to plead with their brethren, that they should not destroy their husbands.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites had compassion on Amulon and his brethren and did not destroy them because of their wives,
And Amulon and his brethren did join the Lamanites; And they were traveling in the wilderness in search of the Land of Nephi when they discovered the Land of Helam which was possessed by Alma and his brethren.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites promised unto Alma and his brethren that if they would show them the way which led to the Land of Nephi, that they would grant unto them their lives and their liberty.
But it came to pass that after Alma had shown them the way that led to the Land of Nephi, the Lamanites would not keep their promise, But they set guards round about the Land of Helam, over Alma and his brethren;
And the remainder of them went to the Land of Nephi, And a part of them returned to the Land of Helam, and also brought with them the wives and the children of the guards which had been left in the land. 43
And the king of the Lamanites had granted unto Amulon that he should be a king and a ruler over his people which were in the Land of Helam; Nevertheless, he should have no power to do anything contrary to the will of the king of the Lamanites.

Yea, even over the people which were in the Land of Shemlon and in the Land of Shilom and in the Land of Amulon,

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
