And it is impossible for the tongue to describe, or for man to write, a perfect description of the horrible scene of the blood and carnage which was among the people, both of the Nephites and of the Lamanites; And every heart was hardened so that they delighted in the shedding of blood continually;
And there never had been so great wickedness among all the children of Lehi, nor even among all the house of Israel according to the words of the Lord, as was among this people.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites did take possession of the City Desolation, and this because their number did exceed the number of the Nephites;
And they did also march forward against the City Teancum, And did drive the inhabitants forth out of her, And did take many prisoners of women and of children, And did offer them up as sacrifices unto their idol gods.
And it came to pass that in the three hundred and sixty and seventh year, the Nephites being angry because the Lamanites had sacrificed their women and their children, That they did go against the Lamanites with exceeding great anger, insomuch that they did beat again the Lamanites and drive them out of their lands.
And the Lamanites did not come again against the Nephites until the three hundred and seventy and fifth year, 19
And in this year they did come down against the Nephites with all their powers; And they were not numbered because of the greatness of their number;
And from this time forth did the Nephites gain no power over the Lamanites, but began to be swept off by them, even as a dew before the sun.
And it came to pass that the Lamanites did come down against the City Desolation, And there was an exceeding sore battle fought in the Land Desolation in the which they did beat the Nephites.
And they fled again from before them and they came to the City Boaz; And there they did stand against the Lamanites with exceeding boldness, insomuch that the Lamanites did not beat them until they had come again the second time;
And when they had come the second time, the Nephites were driven and slaughtered with an exceeding great slaughter; Their women and their children were again sacrificed unto idols.
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.
