And now it came to pass that the king and those people which were converted were desirous that they might have a name, that thereby they might be distinguished from their brethren,
Therefore, the king consulted with Aaron and many of their priests concerning the name that they should take upon them, that they might be distinguished;
And it came to pass that they called their name Anti-Nephi-Lehis; And they were called by this name and were no more called Lamanites.
And they began to be a very industrious people, Yea, and they were friendly with the Nephites, Therefore, they did open a correspondence with them and the curse of God did no more follow them.
And it came to pass that the Amalekites and the Amulonites and the Lamanites- Which were in the Land of Amulon, and also in the Land of Helam, and which were in the Land of Jerusalem and, in fine, in all the land round about, Which had not been converted and had not taken upon them the name of Anti-Nephi-Lehi- Were stirred up by the Amalekites and by the Amulonites to anger against their brethren;
And their hatred became exceeding sore against them, Even insomuch that they began to rebel against their king, insomuch that they would not that he should be their king; Therefore, they took up arms against the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi. 23
Now the king conferred the kingdom upon his son and he called his name Anti-Nephi-Lehi;
And the king died in that selfsame year that the Lamanites began to make preparations for war against the people of God.
Now when Ammon and his brethren and all those which had come up with him saw the preparations of the Lamanites to destroy their brethren, they came forth to the Land of Midian, And there Ammon met all his brethren;
And from thence they came to the Land of Ishmael, that they might hold a council with Lamoni, and also with his brother Anti-Nephi-Lehi, what they should do to defend themselves against the Lamanites.
Now there was not one soul among all the people which had been converted unto the Lord that would take up arms against their brethren,
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.
