And the Lord provided for them, that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst, Yea, and He also gave them strength that they should suffer no manner of afflictions, save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ.
Now this was according to the prayer of Alma, And this because he prayed in faith.
And it came to pass that they did go forth and began to preach the word of God unto the people, entering into their synagogues and into their houses, Yea, and even they did preach the word in their streets.
And it came to pass that after much labor among them, they began to have success among the poorer class of the people; For behold, they were cast out of the synagogues because of the coarseness of their apparel,
Therefore, they were not permitted to enter into their synagogues to worship God, being esteemed as filthiness; Therefore, they were poor, yea, they were esteemed by their priests as dross, Therefore, they were poor as to things of the world, and also they were poor in heart.
Now as Alma was teaching and speaking unto the people upon the Hill Onidah, there came a great multitude unto him which were those of which have been spoken which were poor in heart because of their poverty as to the things of the world; 125
And they came unto Alma, And the one which was the most foremost among them saith unto him: "Behold, what shall these my brethren do? For they are despised of all men because of their poverty, yea, and more especially by our priests;
For they have cast us out of our synagogues which we have labored abundantly to build with our own hands, And they have cast us out because of this our exceeding poverty, that we have no place to worship our God; And behold, what shall we do?"
And now when Alma heard this, he turned him about, his face immediately toward him, and he beheld with great joy, For he beheld that their afflictions had truly humbled them and that they were in a preparation to hear the word;
Therefore, he did say no more to the other multitude, But he stretched forth his hand and cried unto those which he beheld, which were truly penitent, and saith unto them: "I behold that ye are lowly in heart and, if so, blessed are ye.
"Behold, thy brother hath said, 'What shall we do, for we are cast out of our synagogues that we cannot worship our God?'
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.
