Passage: Alma 26:79 - Alma 26:89

79 "And it came to pass that we did camp round about the city for many nights; But we did sleep upon our swords and keep guards, that the Lamanites could not come upon us by night and slay us, which they attempted many times; But as many times as they attempted this, their blood was spilt.
80 "At length their provisions did arrive, And they were about to enter the city by night;
81 And we, instead of being Lamanites, were Nephites, therefore, we did take them and their provisions;

88 And also our provisions were not any more than sufficient for our own people, Notwithstanding that which we had taken from the Lamanites.
89 "And now in those critical circumstances, it became a very serious matter to determine concerning these prisoners of war, Nevertheless, we did resolve to send them down to the Land of Zarahemla;
