Passage: Alma 21:148 - Alma 21:158

148 Yea, they could not bear that their brethren should rejoice over the blood of the Nephites so long as there were any who should keep the commandments of God, For the promises of the Lord were if they should keep His commandments, they should prosper in the land.
149 And now it came to pass in the eleventh month of the nineteenth year, on the tenth day of the month, The armies of the Lamanites were seen approaching toward the Land of Ammonihah;
150 And behold, the city had been rebuilt; And Moroni had stationed an army by the borders of the city, And they had cast up dirt round about to shield them from the arrows and the stones of the Lamanites, For behold, they fought with stones and with arrows.
151 Behold, I said that the City of Ammonihah had been rebuilt - I say unto you, yea, that it was in part rebuilt- And because the Lamanites had destroyed it once because of the iniquity of the people, they supposed that it would again become an easy prey for them.
152 But behold, how great was their disappointment, For behold, the Nephites had dug up a ridge of earth round about them which was so high that the Lamanites could not cast their stones and their arrows at them that they might take effect, Neither could they come upon them, save it was by their place of entrance.
153 Now at this time the chief captains of the Lamanites were astonished exceedingly because of the wisdom of the Nephites in preparing their places of security.
154 Now the leaders of the Lamanites had supposed, because of the greatness of their numbers, Yea, they supposed that they should be privileged to come upon them as they had hitherto done;
155 Yea, and they had also prepared themselves with shields and with breastplates, And they had also prepared themselves with garments of skins, yea, very thick garments to cover their nakedness;
156 And being thus prepared, they supposed that they should easily overpower and subject their brethren to the yoke of bondage, or slay and massacre them, according to their pleasure;
157 But behold, to their uttermost astonishment, they were prepared for them in a manner which never had been known among all the children of Lehi.
158 Now they were prepared for the Lamanites, to battle after the manner of the instructions of Moroni.
