And now, when Zerahemnah had made an end of speaking these words, Moroni returned the sword and the weapons of war which he had received unto Zerahemnah, saying: "Behold, we will end the conflict;
Now I cannot retain the words which I have spoken, Therefore, as the Lord liveth, ye shall not depart except ye depart with an oath that ye will not return again against us to war;
Now as ye are in our hands, we will spill your blood upon the ground, Or ye shall submit to the conditions to which I have proposed."
And now when Moroni had said these words, Zerahemnah retained his sword, And he was angry with Moroni and he rushed forward that he might slay Moroni;
But as he raised his sword, behold, one of Moroni's soldiers smote it even to the earth and it broke by the hilt, And he also smote Zerahemnah that he took off his scalp and it fell to the earth;
And Zerahemnah withdrew from before them into the midst of his soldiers. 84
And it came to pass that the soldier which stood by, which smote off the scalp of Zerahemnah, took up the scalp from off the ground by the hair and laid it upon the point of his sword and stretched it forth unto them, saying unto them with a loud voice-saying:
"Even as this scalp hath fallen to the earth, which is the scalp of your chief, So shall ye fall to the earth, except ye will deliver up your weapons of war and depart with a covenant of peace."
Now there were many when they heard these words and saw the scalp which was upon the sword, they were struck with fear, And many came forth and threw down their weapons of war at the feet of Moroni and entered into a covenant of peace;
And as many as entered into a covenant, they suffered to depart into the wilderness.
Now it came to pass that Zerahemnah was exceeding wroth, And he did stir up the remainder of his soldiers to anger, to contend more powerfully against the Nephites.
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.
