For behold, in the twenty and sixth year, I, Helaman, did march at the head of these two thousand young men to the City of Judeah, to assist Antipus whom ye had appointed a leader over the people of that part of the land;
And I did join my two thousand sons-for they are worthy to be called sons-to the army of Antipus, in the which strength Antipus did rejoice exceedingly; For behold, his army had been reduced by the Lamanites because of the numerosity of their forces, having slain a vast number of our men, for which cause we have to mourn;
Nevertheless, we may console ourselves in this point- that they have died in the cause of their country and of their God, yea, and they are happy.
"And the Lamanites had also retained many prisoners, all of whom are chief captains, for none other have they spared alive;
And we suppose that they are now at this time in the Land of Nephi; It is so, if they are not slain.
"And now these are the cities which the Lamanites have obtained possession by the shedding of the blood of so many of our valiant men- The Land of Manti, or the City of Manti, and the City of Zeezrom, and the City of Cumeni, and the City of Antiparah- 16
And these are the cities which they possessed when I arrived at the City of Judeah. "And I found Antipus and his men toiling with their mights to fortify the city;
Yea, and they were depressed in body as well as in spirit, For they had fought valiantly by day and toiled by night to maintain their cities; And thus they had suffered great afflictions of every kind.
"And now they were determined to conquer in this place, or die; Therefore, you may well suppose that this little force which I brought with me, yea, those sons of mine, gave them great hopes and much joy.
"And now it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that Antipus had received a greater strength to his army, They were compelled, by the orders of Ammaron, to not come against the City of Judeah, or against us to battle.
"And thus were we favored of the Lord, For had they come upon us in this our weakness, they might have perhaps destroyed our little army; But thus were we favored-
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.
