Passage: Alma 16:146 - Alma 16:156

146 Now this is not all- Little children doth have words given unto them many times which doth confound the wise and the learned.
147 "And now my beloved brethren, as ye have desired to know of me what ye shall do because ye are afflicted and cast out- Now I do not desire that ye should suppose that I mean to judge you only according to that which is true,
