And it came to pass that the Lamanites became frightened because of the great destruction among them, even until they began to flee toward the River Sidon;
And they were pursued by Lehi and his men, And they were driven by Lehi into the waters of Sidon, And they crossed the waters of Sidon;
And Lehi retained his armies upon the bank of the River Sidon, that they should not cross.
And it came to pass that Moroni and his army met the army of the Lamanites in the valley on the other side of the River Sidon. And it came to pass that Moroni and his army began to fall upon them and to slay them.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites did flee again before them, toward the Land of Manti, And they were met again by the armies of Moroni.
Now in this case the Lamanites did fight exceedingly, Yea, never had the Lamanites been known to have fought with such exceeding great strength and courage- No, not even from the beginning; 48
And they were inspired by the Zoramites and the Amalekites, which were their chief captains and leaders, And by Zerahemnah who was their chief captain, or their chief leader and commander;
Yea, they did fight like dragons and many of the Nephites were slain by their hands- Yea, for they did smite in two many of their headplates, And they did pierce many of their breastplates, And they did smite off many of their arms; And thus the Lamanites did smite in their fierce anger.
Nevertheless, the Nephites were inspired by a better cause, For they were not fighting for monarchy nor power, But they were fighting for their homes and their liberties, their wives and their children and their all, yea, for their rights of worship and their church;
And they were doing that which they felt it was the duty which they owed to their God, For the Lord had said unto them, and also unto their fathers that, "Inasmuch as ye are not guilty of the first offense, neither the second, Ye shall not suffer yourselves to be slain by the hands of your enemies."
And again, the Lord hath said that, "Ye shall defend your families even unto bloodshed," Therefore, for this cause were the Nephites contending with the Lamanites- To defend themselves and their families and their lands, their country and their rights and their religion.
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.
