For behold, they had nothing save it were meat for their subsistence, which meat they did obtain in the wilderness.
And it came to pass that the wild game became scarce in the wilderness, insomuch that the robbers were about to perish with hunger.
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;
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.
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.
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;
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.
And there were many thousands which did yield themselves up prisoners unto the Nephites, And the remainder of them were slain; And their leader, Zemnarihah, was taken and hanged upon a tree-yea, even upon the top thereof- until he was dead;
And when they had hanged him until he was dead, they did fell the tree to the earth and did cry with a loud voice, saying: "May the Lord preserve His people in righteousness and in holiness of heart! That they may cause to be felled to the earth all who shall seek to slay them because of power and secret combina- tions, even as this man hath been felled to the earth."
And they did rejoice and cry again with one voice, saying, "May the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob protect this people in righteousness, so long as they shall call on the name of their God for protection!"
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"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.
