And it came to pass that my people, with their wives and their children, did now behold the armies of the Lamanites marching toward them; And with that awful fear of death which fills the breasts of all the wicked, did they await to receive them.
And it came to pass that they came to battle against us, And every soul was filled with terror because of the greatness of their numbers.
And it came to pass that they did fall upon my people with the sword, and with the bow, and with the arrow, and with the axe, and with all manner of weapons of war.
And it came to pass that my men were hewn down, yea, or even my ten thousand which were with me; And I fell wounded in the midst, And they passed by me, that they did not put an end to my life;
And when they had gone through and hewn down all my people, save it were twenty and four of us, among whom was my son Moroni,
And we, having survived the dead of our people, did behold on the morrow-when the Lamanites had returned unto their camps-from the top of the Hill Cumorah the ten thousand of my people which were hewn down, being led in the front by me; And we also beheld the ten thousand of my people which were led by my son Moroni. 15
And behold, the ten thousand of Gidgiddonah had fallen, and he also in the midst; And Lamah had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Gilgal had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Limhah had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Jeneum had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Cumenihah and Moronihah and Antionum and Shiblom and Shem and Josh had fallen, with their ten thousand each.
And it came to pass that there were ten more which did fall by the sword, with their ten thousand each; Yea, even all my people- Save it were those twenty and four which were with me, And also a few which had escaped into the South Countries, And a few which had deserted over unto the Lamanites- Had fallen;
And their flesh and bones and blood lay upon the face of the earth, Being left by the hands of those who slew them, to molder upon the land, and to crumble, and to return to their mother earth.
And my soul was rent with anguish because of the slain of my people, And I cried: "O ye fair ones, how could ye have departed from the ways of the Lord! O ye fair ones, how could ye have rejected that Jesus who stood with open arms to receive you!
"Behold, if ye had not done this, ye would not have fallen; But behold, ye are fallen and I mourn your loss;
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.
