Therefore, Morionton put it into their hearts that they should flee to the land which was northward, which was covered with large bodies of water, And take possession of the land which was northward.
And behold, they would have carried this plan into effect, which would have been a cause to have been lamented, But behold, Morionton, being a man of much passion, Therefore, he was angry with one of his maidservants and he fell upon her and beat her much.
And it came to pass that she fled and came over to the camp of Moroni and told Moroni all things concerning the matter; And also concerning their intentions to flee into the Land Northward.
Now behold, the people which were in the Land Bountiful- Or rather, Moroni feared that they would hearken to the words of Morionton and unite with his people; And thus he would obtain possession of those parts of the land, which would lay a foundation for serious consequences among the people of Nephi, Yea, which consequences would lead to the overthrow of their liberty;
Therefore, Moroni sent an army, with their camp, to head the people of Morionton to stop their flight into the Land Northward.
And it came to pass that they did not head them until they had come to the borders of the Land Desolation; And there they did head them by the Narrow Pass which led by the sea into the Land Northward, Yea, by the sea on the west and on the east. 36

And thus ended the twenty and fourth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi. And thus were the people of Morionton brought back.
And upon their covenanting to keep the peace, they were restored to the Land of Morionton, And a union took place between them and the people of Lehi; And they were also restored to their lands.
And it came to pass that in the same year that the people of Nephi had peace restored unto them, That Nephihah, the second chief judge, died, having filled the judgment seat with perfect uprightness before God;
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
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.
