Now we were not sufficiently strong to contend with them; Yea, I would not suffer that my little sons should fall into their hands; Therefore, we did continue our march and we took our march into the wilderness.
"Now they durst not turn to the right nor to the left, lest they should be surrounded; Neither would I turn to the right or to the left, lest they should overtake me and we could not stand against them, but be slain, And they would make their escape. "And thus we did flee all that day into the wilderness, even until it was dark.
"And it came to pass that again when the light of the morning came, we saw the Lamanites upon us, And we did flee before them;
But it came to pass that they did not pursue us far before they halted; And it was in the morning of the third day on the seventh month.
"And now whether they were overtaken by Antipus, we knew not; But I said unto my men: 'Behold, we know not but they have halted for the purpose that we should come against them, that they might catch us in their snare; Therefore, what say ye, my sons? Will ye go against them to battle?'
"And now I say unto you, my beloved brother Moroni, that never had I seen so great courage, nay, not amongst all the Nephites; 54
For as I had ever called them my sons-for they were all of them very young-even so they said unto me: 'Father, behold, our God is with us and He will not suffer that we shall fall, Then let us go forth;
We would not slay our brethren if they would let us alone; Therefore, let us go lest they should overpower the army of Antipus.'
"Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; And they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; Yea, they had been taught by their mothers that if they did not doubt, that God would deliver them;
And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: 'We do not doubt our mothers knew.'
"And it came to pass that I did return with my two thou- sand against these Lamanites which had pursued us.
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.
