Passage: Alma 21:159 - Alma 21:169

159 And it came to pass that the Lamanites, or the Amalickiahites, were exceedingly astonished at their manner of preparation for war.
160 Now if King Amalickiah had come down out of the Land of Nephi at the head of his army, Perhaps he would have caused the Lamanites to have attacked the Nephites at the City of Ammonihah, For behold, he did care not for the blood of his people.
161 But behold, Amalickiah did not come down himself to battle;
162 And behold, his chief captains durst not attack the Nephites at the City of Ammonihah, For Moroni had altered the management of affairs among the Nephites insomuch that the Lamanites were disappointed in their places of retreat, And they could not come upon them,
163 Therefore, they retreated into the wilderness and took their camp and marched toward the Land of Noah, supposing that to be the next best place for them to come against the Nephites,
164 For they knew not that Moroni had fortified or had built forts of security for every city in all the land round about;
165 Therefore, they marched forward to the Land of Noah with a firm determination, Yea, their chief captains came forward and took an oath that they would destroy the people of that city.
166 But behold, to their astonishment, the City of Noah- which had hitherto been a weak place-had now, by the means of Moroni, become strong, yea, even to exceed the strength of the City Ammonihah.
167 And now behold, this was wisdom in Moroni, For he had supposed that they would be frightened at the City Ammonihah, And as the City of Noah had hitherto been the weakest part of the land, Therefore, they would march thither to battle; And thus it was according to his desires.
168 And behold, Moroni had appointed Lehi to be chief captain over the men of that city, And it was that same Lehi which fought with the Lamanites in the valley on the east of the River Sidon.
169 And now behold, it came to pass that when the Lamanites had found that Lehi commanded the city, They were again disappointed, for they feared Lehi exceedingly; Nevertheless, their chief captains had sworn with an oath to attack the city, Therefore, they brought up their armies.
