Passage: Alma 8:16 - Alma 8:26

16 "For behold, he hath blessed mine house; He hath blessed me and my women and my children and my father and my kinsfolk,
17 Yea, even all my kindred hath he blessed; And the blessing of the Lord hath rested upon us according to the words which he spake."
18 And now when Amulek had spoken these words, the people began to be astonished, Seeing there was more than one witness which testified of the things whereof they were accused, and also of the things which were to come, according to the spirit of prophecy which was in them.
19 Nevertheless, there were some among them which thought to question them, That by their cunning devices they might catch them in their words, That they might find witness against them, That they might deliver them to the judges,
20 That they might be judged according to the law, And that they might be slain or cast into prison according to the crime which they could make appear, or witness against them.
21 Now, it was those men which sought to destroy them which were lawyers which were hired, or appointed by the people to administer the law at their times of trials, or at the trials of the crimes of the people before the judges.
22 Now these lawyers were learned in all the arts and cunning of the people; And this was to enable them that they might be skillful in their profession.
23 And it came to pass that they began to question Amulek that thereby they might make him cross his words, or contradict the words which he should speak.
24 Now, they knew not that Amulek could know of their design;
25 But it came to pass as they began to question him, he perceived their thoughts and he saith unto them: "O ye wicked and perverse generation! Ye lawyers and hypocrites! For ye are laying the foundations of the devil;
26 For ye are laying traps and snares to catch the holy ones of God; Ye are laying plans to pervert the ways of the righteous and to bring down the wrath of God upon your heads, even to the utter destruction of this people.
