Passage: 3 Nephi 2:14 - 3 Nephi 2:24

14 And also of threatening the people and avenging the wrongs of those that had received no wrong, save it were they had wronged themselves by dissenting away unto those wicked and abominable robbers.
15 Now behold, this Lachoneus, the governor, was a just man and could not be frightened by the demands and the threatenings of a robber;
16 Therefore, he did not hearken to the epistle of Giddianhi, the governor of the robbers, But he did cause that his people should cry unto the Lord for strength against the time that the robbers should come down against them.
17 Yea, he sent a proclamation among all the people that they should gather together their women and their children, their flocks and their herds and all their substance- save it were their land-unto one place.
18 And he caused that fortifications should be built round about them and the strength thereof should be exceeding great.
19 And he caused that there should be armies-both of the Nephites and of the Lamanites, or of all them which were numbered among the Nephites-should be placed as guards round about to watch them and to guard them from the robbers day and night.
20 Yea, he said unto them, "As the Lord liveth, except ye repent of all your iniquities and cry unto the Lord"- That they could in no wise be delivered out of the hands of those Gaddianton robbers.
21 And so great and marvelous were the words and prophecies of Lachoneus that they did cause fear to come upon all the people, And they did exert themselves in their might to do according to the words of Lachoneus.
22 And it came to pass that Lachoneus did appoint chief captains over all the armies of the Nephites to command them at the time that the robbers should come down out of the wilderness against them;
23 Now the chiefest among all the chief captains and the great commander of all the armies of the Nephites was appointed, and his name was Gidgiddoni;
24 Now it was the custom among all the Nephites to appoint for their chief captains-save it were in their times of wickedness-someone that had the spirit of revelation, and also prophecy; Therefore, this Gidgiddoni was a great prophet among them, and also was the chief judge.
