"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.
"At length their provisions did arrive, And they were about to enter the city by night;
And we, instead of being Lamanites, were Nephites, therefore, we did take them and their provisions;
And notwithstanding the Lamanites being cut off from their support, after this manner, they were still determined to maintain the city;
Therefore, it became expedient that we should take those provisions and send them to Judeah and our prisoners to the Land of Zarahemla.

Therefore, it became expedient for us that we should put an end to their lives, Or guard them, sword in hand, down to the Land of Zarahemla;
And also our provisions were not any more than sufficient for our own people, Notwithstanding that which we had taken from the Lamanites.

"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.
