Passage: Alma 1:54 - Alma 1:64

54 Now this Amlici had, by his cunning, drawn away much people after him, even so much that they began to be very powerful; And they began to endeavor to establish Amlici to be a king over the people.
55 Now this was alarming to the people of the church, and also to all those who had not been drawn away after the persuasions of Amlici,
56 For they knew that according to their law, that such things must be established by the voice of the people;
57 Therefore, if it were possible that Amlici should gain the voice of the people, he, being a wicked man, would deprive them of their rights and privileges of the church, etc., For it was his intent to destroy the church of God.
58 And it came to pass that the people assembled themselves together throughout all the land- Every man according to his mind, whether it were for or against Amlici- In separate bodies, having much dispute and wonderful contentions one with another;
59 And thus they did assemble themselves together to cast in their voices concerning the matter; And they were laid before the judges.
60 And it came to pass that the voice of the people came against Amlici, that he was not made king over the people.
61 Now this did cause much joy in the hearts of those which were against him; But Amlici did stir up those which were in his favor to anger against those which were not in his favor.
62 And it came to pass that they gathered themselves together and did consecrate Amlici to be their king.
63 Now when Amlici was made king over them, he commanded them that they should take up arms against their brethren; And this he did that he might subject them to him.
64 Now the people of Amlici were distinguished by the name of Amlici, being called Amlicites, And the remainder were called Nephites, or the people of God.
