And they did look upon shedding the blood of their brethren with the greatest abhorrence; And they never could be prevailed upon to take up arms against their brethren.
And they never did look upon death with any degree of terror, for their hope and views of Christ and the resurrection; Therefore, death was swallowed up to them by the victory of Christ over it;
Therefore, they would suffer death in the most aggravating and distressing manner which could be inflicted by their brethren before they would take the sword or the scimitar to smite them;
And thus they were a zealous and beloved people, a highly favored people of the Lord.
And now it came to pass that after the people of Ammon were established in the Land of Jershon, and a church also established in the Land of Jershon, And the armies of the Nephites were set round about the Land of Jershon, yea, in all the borders round about the Land of Zarahemla, Behold, the armies of the Lamanites had followed their brethren into the wilderness;
And thus there was a tremendous battle, yea, even such an one as never had been known among all the people in the land from the time Lehi left Jerusalem; Yea, and tens of thousands of the Lamanites were slain and scattered abroad, 38
Yea, and also there was a tremendous slaughter among the people of Nephi; Nevertheless, the Lamanites were driven and scattered and the people of Nephi returned again to their land.
And now this was a time that there was a great mourning and lamentation heard throughout all the land among all the people of Nephi,
Yea, the cry of widows mourning for their husbands, and also of fathers mourning for their sons, and the daughter for the brother, yea, the brother for the father;
And thus the cry of mourning was heard among every one of them, a mourning for their kindred which had been slain;
And now surely this was a sorrowful day, yea, a time of solemnity and a time of much fasting and prayer. And thus ended the fifteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
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.
