Passage: Alma 14:26 - Alma 14:36

26 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.
27 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,
28 Nay, they would not even make any preparations for war; Yea, and also their king commanded them that they should not.
29 Now these are the words which he said unto the people concerning the matter: "I thank my God, my beloved people, that our great God has in goodness sent these our brethren, the Nephites, unto us to preach unto us and to convince us of the traditions of our wicked fathers.
30 "And behold, I thank my great God that He has given us a portion of His Spirit to soften our hearts, that we have opened a correspondence with these brethren, the Nephites.
31 "And behold, I also thank my God that by opening this correspondence, We have been convinced of our sins and of the many murders which we have committed.
32 "And I also thank my God, yea, my great God, that He hath granted unto us that we might repent of these things, And also that He hath forgiven us of these our many sins and murders which we have committed, And took away the guilt from our hearts through the merits of His Son.
33 "And now behold, my brethren, since it has been all that we could do-as we were the most lost of all mankind- to repent of all our sins and the many murders which we have committed and to get God to take them away from our hearts- For it was all we could do to repent sufficiently before God that He would take away our stain-
34 Now, my best beloved brethren, since God hath taken away our stains and our swords have become bright, then let us stain our swords no more with the blood of our brethren.
35 "Behold, I say unto you, Nay; Let us retain our swords, that they be not stained with the blood of our brethren,
36 For perhaps if we should stain our swords again, They can no more be washed bright through the blood of the Son of our great God which shall be shed for the atonement of our sins.
