Passage: Alma 22:40 - Alma 23:6

40 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;
41 Nevertheless, he had refused Alma to take possession of those records and those things which were esteemed by Alma and his fathers to be most sacred; Therefore, Alma had conferred them upon his son Helaman.
42 Behold, it came to pass that the son of Nephihah was appointed to fill the judgment seat in the stead of his father; Yea, he was appointed chief judge and governor over the people, with an oath and sacred ordinance to judge righteously, And to keep the peace and the freedom of the people, And to grant unto them their sacred privileges to worship the Lord their God,
43 Yea, to support and maintain the cause of God all his days, And to bring the wicked to justice according to their crime. Now behold, his name was Pahoron;
44 And Pahoron did fill the seat of his father and did commence his reign in the end of the twenty and fourth year over the people of Nephi.

Alma 23
1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, They having established peace between the people of Lehi and the people of Morionton concerning their lands, And having commenced the twenty and fifth year in peace;
2 Nevertheless, they did not long maintain an entire peace in the land, For there began to be a contention among the people concerning the chief judge Pahoron. For behold, there were a part of the people which desired that a few particular points of the law should be altered;
3 But behold, Pahoron would not alter, nor suffer the law to be altered; Therefore, he did not hearken to those who had sent in their voices with their petitions concerning the altering of the law;
4 Therefore, those which were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with him and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land; Therefore, there arose a warm dispute concerning the matter, But not unto bloodshed.
5 And it came to pass that those who were desirous that Pahoron should be dethroned from the judgment seat were called Kingmen, For they were desirous that the law should be altered in a manner to overthrow the free government and to establish a king over the land;
6 And those who were desirous that Pahoron should remain chief judge over the land took upon them the name of Freemen; And thus was the division among them, For the Freemen had sworn or covenanted to maintain their rights and the privileges of their religion by a free government.
