And while Teancum was thus leading away the Lamanites which were pursuing them in vain, Behold, Moroni commanded that a part of his army which were with him should march forth into the city and take possession of it.
And thus they did and slew all those who had been left to protect the city, yea, all those who would not yield up their weapons of war.
And thus Moroni had obtained a possession of the City Mulek with a part of his army, while he marched with the remainder to meet the Lamanites when they should return from the pursuit of Teancum.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites did pursue Teancum until they came near the City Bountiful; And then they were met by Lehi and a small army which had been left to protect the City Bountiful.
And now behold, when the chief captains of the Lamanites had beheld Lehi with his army coming against them, they fled in much confusion, Lest perhaps they should not obtain the City Mulek before Lehi should overtake them, For they were wearied because of their march and the men of Lehi were fresh.
Now the Lamanites did not know that Moroni had been in their rear with his army, And all they feared was Lehi and his men. 38
Now Lehi was not desirous to overtake them till they should meet Moroni and his army.
And it came to pass that before the Lamanites had retreated far, they were surrounded by the Nephites-by the men of Moroni on one hand and the men of Lehi on the other, all of whom were fresh and full of strength; But the Lamanites were wearied because of their long march,
And Moroni commanded his men that they should fall upon them until they had given up their weapons of war.
And it came to pass that Jacob being their leader, being also a Zoramite and having an unconquerable spirit, He led the Lamanites forth to battle with exceeding fury against Moroni-
Moroni being in their course of march- Therefore, Jacob was determined to slay them and cut his way through to the City of Mulek;
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.
