And Ammon went to the Land of Ishmael, the land being called after the sons of Ishmael which also became Lamanites.
And as Ammon entered the Land of Ishmael, the Lamanites took him and bound him, as was their custom to bind all the Nephites which fell into their hands and carry them before the king;
And thus it was left to the pleasure of the king- to slay them, or to retain them in captivity, or to cast them into prison, or to cast them out of his land- according to his will and pleasure.
And thus Ammon was carried before the king which was over the Land of Ishmael; And his name was Lamoni, And he was a descendant of Ishmael.
And the king inquired of Ammon if it were his desires to dwell in the land among the Lamanites, or among his people.
And Ammon said unto him: "Yea, I desire to dwell among this people for a time, yea, and perhaps until the day I die." 35
And it came to pass that King Lamoni was much pleased with Ammon and caused that his bands should be loosed; And he would that Ammon should take one of his daughters to wife.
But Ammon saith unto him: "Nay, but I will be thy servant"; Therefore, Ammon became a servant to King Lamoni.
And it came to pass that he was set among other servants to watch the flocks of Lamoni according to the custom of the Lamanites.
And it came to pass that after he had been in the service of the king three days, that as he was with the Lamanitish servants a going forth with their flocks to the place of water which was called the Waters of Sebus- and all the Lamanites drive their flocks hither that they might have water-
Therefore, as Ammon and the servants of the king were driving forth their flocks to this place of water, Behold, a certain number of the Lamanites who had been with their flocks to water stood and scattered the flocks of Ammon and the servants of the king; And they scattered them insomuch that they fled many ways.
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.
