And he also contended with the king of the Lamanites, But the king of the Lamanites fled back from before Alma and sent his guards to contend with Alma;
But Alma, with his guards, contended with the guards of the king of the Lamanites until he slew and drove them back.
And thus he cleared the ground, or rather the bank, which was on the west of the River Sidon, throwing the bodies of the Lamanites which had been slain into the waters of Sidon, That thereby his people might have room to cross and contend with the Lamanites and the Amlicites on the west side of the River Sidon.
And it came to pass that when they had all crossed the River Sidon, that the Lamanites and the Amlicites began to flee before them, notwithstanding they were so numerous that they could not be numbered;
And they fled before the Nephites toward the wilderness which was west and north, away beyond the borders of the land;
And the Nephites did pursue them with their might and did slay them, Yea, they were met on every hand and slain and driven until they were scattered on the west and on the north, until they had reached the wilderness which was called Hermounts; 96
And it was that part of the wilderness which was infested by wild and ravenous beasts.
And it came to pass that many died in the wilderness of their wounds and were devoured by those beasts, and also the vultures of the air; And their bones have been found and have been heaped upon the earth.
And it came to pass that the Nephites which were not slain by the weapons of war, after having buried those which had been slain-now the number of the slain were not numbered because of the greatness of their number- And after they had finished burying their dead, they all returned to their lands and to their houses and their wives and their children.
Now many women and children had been slain with the sword, and also many of their flocks and their herds;
And also many of their fields of grain were destroyed, for they were trodden down by the hosts of men.
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"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.
