128 Now when Gideon had heard these things, he being the king's captain, he went forth and said unto the king: "I pray thee, forbear and do not search this people and lay not this thing to their charge, 129 For do ye not remember the priests of thy father which this people sought to destroy? 130 And are they not in the wilderness? And is it not they which have stolen the daughters of the Lamanites? 131 "And now behold, and tell the king of these things that he may tell his people, that they may be pacified toward us, For behold, they are already preparing to come against us; And behold also, there are but few of us, 132 And behold, they come with their numerous hosts, And except the king doth pacify them toward us, we must perish; 133 For are not the words of Abinadi fulfilled which he prophesied against us? And all this because we would not hearken unto the word of the Lord and turn from our iniquities? 134 "And now, let us pacify the king and we fulfill the oath which we have made unto him, For it is better that we should be in bondage than that we should lose our lives; Therefore, let us put a stop to the shedding of so much blood." 135 And now Limhi told the king all the things concerning his father and the priests that had fled into the wilderness, And attributed the carrying away of their daughters to them. 136 And it came to pass that the king was pacified toward his people, And he said unto them: "Let us go forth to meet my people without arms; And I swear unto you with an oath that my people shall not slay thy people." 137 And it came to pass that they followed the king and went forth without arms to meet the Lamanites. 138 And it came to pass that they did meet the Lamanites; And the king of the Lamanites did bow himself down before them and did plead in behalf of the people of Limhi; 139 And when the Lamanites saw the people of Limhi, that they were without arms, They had compassion on them and were pacified toward them and returned with their king in peace to their own land. 140 And it came to pass that Limhi and his people returned to the City of Nephi and began to dwell in the land again in peace. 141 And it came to pass that after many days the Lamanites began again to be stirred up in anger against the Nephites; And they began to come into the borders of the land round about. 142 Now they durst not slay them because of the oath which their king had made unto Limhi; But they would smite them on their cheeks and exercise authority over them, And began to put heavy burdens upon their backs and drive them as they would a dumb ass; Yea, all this was done that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled. 143 And now the afflictions of the Nephites were great; And there was no way that they could deliver themselves out of their hands, for the Lamanites had surrounded them on every side. 144 And it came to pass that the people began to murmur with the king, because of their afflictions, And they began to be desirous to go against them to battle, 145 And they did afflict the king sorely with their complaints, Therefore, he granted unto them that they should do according to their desires; 146 And they gathered themselves together again and put on their armor and went forth against the Lamanites, to drive them out of their land. 147 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did beat them and drive them back and slay many of them. 148 And now, there was a great mourning and lamentation among the people of Limhi: The widow a mourning for her husband, The son and the daughter a mourning for their father, And the brothers, for their brethren.

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.
