Passage: Alma 28:2 - Alma 28:12

2 And these are the words which he received: "I, Pahoron, which art the chief governor of this land, do send these words unto Moroni, the chief captain over the army. "Behold I say unto you, Moroni, that I do not joy in your great afflictions, yea, it grieves my soul.
3 "But behold, there are those who do joy in your afflictions, Yea, insomuch that they have risen up in rebellion against me, and also those of my people which are Freemen. "Yea, and those which have risen up are exceeding numerous;

7 "And behold, I have sent a proclamation throughout this part of the land; And behold, they are flocking to us daily, to their arms, in the defense of their country and their freedom and to avenge our wrongs.
8 "And they have come unto us, insomuch that those which have risen up in rebellion against us are set at defiance, Yea, insomuch that they do fear us and durst not come out against us to battle.

11 "And now, in your epistle ye hath censured me, but it mattereth not- I am not angry, but do rejoice in the greatness of your heart.
12 "I, Pahoron, do not seek for power, save only to retain my judgment seat, that I may preserve the rights and the liberty of my people;
