Passage: Alma 16:78 - Alma 16:88

78 Now it came to pass that after the end of Korihor, Alma having received tidings that the Zoramites were perverting the ways of the Lord and that Zoram, which was their leader, was leading the hearts of the people to bow down to dumb idols, etc., His heart again began to sicken because of the iniquity of the people;
79 For it was the cause of great sorrow to Alma to know of the iniquity among his people, Therefore, his heart was exceeding sorrowful because of the separation of the Zoramites from the Nephites.
80 Now the Zoramites had gathered themselves together in a land which they called Antionum, Which was east of the Land of Zarahemla, Which lay nearly bordering upon the seashore, Which was south of the Land Jershon, Which also bordered upon the Wilderness South, which wilderness was full of the Lamanites.
81 Now the Nephites greatly feared that the Zoramites would enter into a correspondence with the Lamanites and that it would be the means of great loss on the part of the Nephites.
82 And now, as the preaching of the word had had a greater tendency to lead the people to do that which was just, Yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword or anything else which had happened unto them, Therefore, Alma thought it was expedient that they should try the virtue of the word of God.
83 Therefore, he took Ammon and Aaron and Omner- and Himni he did leave in the church in Zarahemla, but the former three he took with him-and also Amulek and Zeezrom which were at Melek, And he also took two of his sons;
84 Now the eldest of his sons he took not with him-and his name was Helaman-but the names of those which he took with him were Shiblon and Coreanton; And these are the names of those which went with him among the Zoramites to preach unto them the word.
85 Now the Zoramites were dissenters from the Nephites, therefore they had had the word of God preached unto them;
86 But they had fallen into great errors, for they would not observe to keep the commandments of God and His statutes according to the law of Moses,
87 Neither would they observe the performances of the church to continue in prayer and supplication to God daily, that they might not enter into temptation, Yea, in fine, they did pervert the ways of the Lord in very many instances; Therefore, for this cause Alma and his brethren went into the land to preach the word unto them.
88 Now when they had come into the land, Behold, to their astonishment, they found that the Zoramites had built synagogues, And that they did gather themselves together on one day of the week, which day they did call the day of the Lord;
