Passage: 3 Nephi 2:64 - 3 Nephi 2:74

64 For they did suppose that if they should cut off the people of Nephi from their lands and should hem them in on every side, And if they should cut them off from all their outward privileges, That they could cause them to yield themselves according to their wishes.
65 Now they had appointed unto themselves another leader whose name was Zemnarihah, Therefore, it was Zemnarihah that did cause that this siege should take place.
66 But behold, this was an advantage unto the Nephites, For it was impossible for the robbers to lay siege sufficiently long to have any effect upon the Nephites because of their much provision which they had laid up in store and because of the scantiness of provisions among the robbers;
67 For behold, they had nothing save it were meat for their subsistence, which meat they did obtain in the wilderness.
68 And it came to pass that the wild game became scarce in the wilderness, insomuch that the robbers were about to perish with hunger.
69 And the Nephites were continually marching out by day and by night and falling upon their armies and cutting them off by thousands and by tens of thousands;
70 And thus it became the desire of the people of Zemnarihah to withdraw from their design because of the great destruction which came upon them by night and by day.
71 And it came to pass that Zemnarihah did give command unto his people that they should withdraw themselves from the siege and to march into the farthermost parts of the Land Northward.
72 And now Gidgiddoni being aware of their design and knowing of their weakness because of the want of food and the great slaughter which had been made among them, Therefore, he did send out his armies in the nighttime and did cut off the way of their retreat and did place his armies in the way of their retreat;
73 And this did they do in the nighttime and got on their march beyond the robbers, So that on the morrow when the robbers began their march, they were met by the armies of the Nephites, both in their front and in their rear;
74 And the robbers which were on the south were also cut off in their places of retreat; And all these things were done by command of Gidgiddoni.

"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;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"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.

--Zechariah 12:10
