And Moroni went to the City of Mulek with Lehi and took command of the city and gave it unto Lehi.
Now behold, this Lehi was a man who had been with Moroni in the more part of all his battles and he was a man like unto Moroni; And they rejoiced in each other's safety, Yea, they were beloved by each other, and also beloved by all the people of Nephi.
And it came to pass that after the Lamanites had finished burying their dead, and also the dead of the Nephites, They were marched back into the Land Bountiful.
And Teancum, by the orders of Moroni, caused that they should commence in laboring in digging a ditch round about the Land or the City Bountiful.
And he caused that they should build a breastwork of timbers upon the inner bank of the ditch; And they cast up dirt out of the ditch against the breastwork of timbers.
And thus they did cause the Lamanites to labor until they had encircled the City of Bountiful round about with a strong wall of timbers and earth to an exceeding height; 57
And this city became an exceeding stronghold ever after; And in this city they did guard the prisoners of the Lamanites, Yea, even within a wall which they had caused them to build with their own hands.
Now Moroni was compelled to cause the Lamanites to labor because it was easy to guard them while at their labor; And he desired all his forces when he should make an attack upon the Lamanites.
And it came to pass that Moroni had thus gained a victory over one of the greatest of the armies of the Lamanites, And had obtained possession of the City Mulek which was one of the strongest holds of the Lamanites in the Land of Nephi; And thus he had also built a stronghold to retain his prisoners.
And it came to pass that he did no more attempt a battle with the Lamanites in that year; But he did employ his men in preparing for war, Yea, and in making fortifications to guard against the Lamanites, Yea, and also delivering their women and their children from famine and affliction, And providing food for their armies.
And now it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites on the West Sea South-while in the absence of Moroni on account of some intrigue amongst the Nephites, which caused dissensions amongst them- had gained some ground over the Nephites, Yea, insomuch that they had obtained possession of a number of their cities in that part of the land;
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.
