Passage: Alma 21:128 - Alma 21:138

128 Now it came to pass that while Amalickiah had thus been obtaining power by fraud and deceit, Moroni, on the other hand, had been a preparing the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord their God.
129 Yea, he had been strengthening the armies of the Nephites and erecting small forts, or places of resort, Throwing up banks of earth round about to encircle his armies, and also building walls of stone to encircle them about, Round about their cities and the borders of their lands, yea, all round about the land,
130 And in their weakest fortifications, he did place the greater number of men; And thus he did fortify and strengthen the land which was possessed by the Nephites.
131 And thus he was preparing to support their liberty, their lands, their wives and their children and their peace, And that they might live unto the Lord their God, And that they might maintain that which was called by their enemies the cause of Christians.
132 And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man- He was a man of a perfect understanding, Yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed, A man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country and his brethren from bondage and slavery,
133 Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God for the many privileges and blessings which He bestowed upon His people, A man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people,
134 Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ- And he had sworn with an oath to defend his people, his rights and his country and his religion, even to the loss of his blood.
135 Now the Nephites were taught to defend themselves against their enemies, even to the shedding of blood if it were necessary;
136 Yea, and they were also taught never to give an offense, Yea, and never to raise the sword, except it were against an enemy, except it were to preserve their lives.
137 And this was their faith- That by so doing, God would prosper them in the land, Or in other words, if they were faithful in keeping the commandments of God, that He would prosper them in the land, Yea, warn them to flee or to prepare for war, according to their danger,
138 And also that God would make it known unto them whither they should go to defend themselves against their enemies, And by so doing the Lord would deliver them. And this was the faith of Moroni,
