And thus had the Lamanites obtained, by the cunning of Amalickiah, so many cities by their numberless hosts, All of which were strongly fortified after the manner of the fortifications of Moroni, All of which afforded strongholds for the Lamanites.
And it came to pass that they marched to the borders of the Land Bountiful, driving the Nephites before them and slaying many.
But it came to pass that they were met by Teancum, who had slain Morionton and had headed his people in his flight.
And it came to pass that he headed Amalickiah also, as he was marching forth with his numerous army that he might take possession of the Land Bountiful, and also the Land Northward;
But behold, he met with a disappointment by being repulsed by Teancum and his men, for they were great warriors; For every man of Teancum did exceed the Lamanites in their strength and in their skill of war, Insomuch that they did gain advantage over the Lamanites.
And it came to pass that they did harass them, Insomuch that they did slay them, even until it was dark. 39
And it came to pass that Teancum and his men did pitch their tents in the borders of the Land Bountiful; And Amalickiah did pitch his tents in the borders on the beach by the seashore. And after this manner were they driven.
And it came to pass that when the night had come, Teancum and his servant stole forth and went out by night and went into the camp of Amalickiah; And behold, sleep had overpowered them because of their much fatigue which was caused by the labors and heat of the day.
And it came to pass that Teancum stole privily into the tent of the king and put a javelin to his heart; And he did cause the death of the king immediately, that he did not awake his servants.
And he returned again privily to his own camp, And behold, his men were asleep; And he awoke them and told them all the things that he had done.
And he caused that his armies should stand in readiness, lest the Lamanites had awoke and should come upon them.
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.
