Passage: Alma 25:40 - Alma 25:50

40 And it came to pass they did drink and were merry; And by and by they were all drunken.
41 And now when Laman and his men saw that they were all drunken and were in a deep sleep, they returned to Moroni and told him all the things that had happened; And now this was according to the design of Moroni.
42 And Moroni had prepared his men with weapons of war; And he went to the City Gid while the Lamanites were in a deep sleep and drunken, And cast in the weapons of war in unto the prisoners, insomuch that they were all armed, Yea, even to their women and all those of their children- as many as were able to use a weapon of war- when Moroni had armed all those prisoners;
43 And all those things were done in a profound silence; But had they awakened the Lamanites, Behold, they were drunken and the Nephites could have slain them.
44 But behold, this was not the desire of Moroni; He did not delight in murder or bloodshed, But he delighted in the saving of his people from destruction; And for this cause he might not bring upon him injustice, he would not fall upon the Lamanites and destroy them in their drunkenness.
45 But he had obtained his desire, for he had armed those prisoners of the Nephites which were within the walls of the city, And had given them power to gain possession of those parts which were within the walls;
46 And then he caused the men which were with him to withdraw a pace from them and surround the armies of the Lamanites;
47 Now behold, this was done in the nighttime so that when the Lamanites awoke in the morning, they beheld that they were surrounded by the Nephites without and that their prisoners were armed within.
48 And thus they saw that the Nephites had power over them; And in these circumstances, they found that it was not expedient that they should fight with the Nephites;
49 Therefore, their chief captains demanded their weapons of war, And they brought them forth and cast them at the feet of the Nephites, pleading for mercy. Now behold, this was the desire of Moroni;
50 He took them prisoners of war and took possession of the city, And caused that all the prisoners should be liberated, which were Nephites; And they did join the army of Moroni and were a great strength to his army.
