Passage: Alma 17:7 - Alma 17:17

7 But behold, the voice said unto me, "Arise!" And I arose and stood up and beheld the angel, And he said unto me: "If thou wilt of thyself be destroyed, seek no more to destroy the church of God!"
8 And it came to pass that I fell to the earth; And it was for the space of three days and three nights that I could not open my mouth, neither had I the use of my limbs;
9 And the angel spake more things unto me which were heard by my brethren, but I did not hear them, For when I heard the words-"If thou wilt be destroyed of thyself, seek no more to destroy the church of God!"-I was struck with such great fear and amazement, lest perhaps that I should be destroyed, that I fell to the earth and I did hear no more;
10 But I was racked with eternal torment, for my soul was harrowed up to the greatest degree and racked with all my sins- Yea, I did remember all my sins and iniquities, for which I was tormented with the pains of hell,
11 Yea, I saw that I had rebelled against my God and that I had not kept His holy commandments, Yea, and I had murdered many of His children, or rather, led them away unto destruction,
12 Yea, and in fine, so great had been my iniquities that the very thoughts of coming into the presence of my God did rack my soul with inexpressible horror;
13 O, thought I, that I could be banished and become extinct, both soul and body! That I might not be brought to stand in the presence of my God to be judged of my deeds!
14 And now, for three days and for three nights was I racked even with the pains of a damned soul.
15 And it came to pass that as I was thus racked with torment-while I was harrowed up by the memory of my many sins- Behold, I remembered also to have heard my father proph- esy unto the people concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God, to atone for the sins of the world.
16 Now, as my mind caught hold upon this thought, I cried within my heart, O Jesus, Thou Son of God, have mercy on me who art in the gall of bitterness and art encircled about by the everlasting chains of death!
17 And now behold, when I thought this, I could remember my pains no more, Yea, I was harrowed up by the memory of my sins no more;
