Passage: Alma 12:162 - Alma 12:182

162 And it came to pass that when the multitude beheld that the man had fallen dead who lifted the sword to slay Ammon, fear came upon them all, And they durst not put forth their hands to touch him or any of those which had fallen.
163 And they began to marvel again among themselves what could be the cause of this great power, or what all these things could mean.
164 And it came to pass that there were many among them who said that Ammon was the Great Spirit; And others said he was sent by the Great Spirit;
165 But others rebuked them all, saying that, "He was a monster which hath been sent from the Nephites to torment us";
166 And there were some which said that Ammon was sent by the Great Spirit to afflict them because of their iniquities, And that it was the Great Spirit that had always attended the Nephites, which had even delivered them out of their hands,
167 And they said that it was this Great Spirit which had destroyed so many of their brethren, the Lamanites; And thus the contention began to be exceeding sharp among them.
168 And while they were thus contending, the woman servant, which had caused the multitude to be gathered together, came; And when she saw the contention which was among the multitude, she was exceeding sorrowful, even unto tears.
169 And it came to pass that she went and took the queen by the hand, that perhaps she might raise her from the ground; And as soon as she touched her hand, she arose and stood upon her feet and cried with a loud voice, saying:
170 "O blessed Jesus who has saved me from an awful hell! O blessed God, have mercy on this people!"
171 And when she had said this, she clapped her hands, being filled with joy, speaking many words which were not understood.
172 And when she had done this, she took the king, Lamoni, by the hand and behold, he arose and stood upon his feet;
173 And he immediately, seeing the contention among his people, went forth and began to rebuke them and to teach them the words which he had heard from the mouth of Ammon; And as many as heard his words believed and were converted unto the Lord;
174 But there were many among them who would not hear his words, therefore, they went their way.
175 And it came to pass that when Ammon arose, he also administered unto them, And also did all the servants of Lamoni;
176 And they did all declare unto the people the selfsame thing-that their hearts had been changed, that they had no more desire to do evil;
177 And behold, many did declare unto the people that they had seen angels and had conversed with them; And thus they had told them things of God and of His righteousness.
178 And it came to pass that there were many that did believe in their words; And as many as did believe were baptized; And they became a righteous people and they did establish a church among them;
179 And thus the work of the Lord did commence among the Lamanites; Thus the Lord did begin to pour out His Spirit upon them.
180 And we see that His arm is extended to all people who will repent and believe on His name.
181 And it came to pass that when they had established a church in that land, that King Lamoni desired that Ammon should go with him to the Land of Nephi, that he might show him unto his father.
182 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to Ammon, saying: "Thou shalt not go up to the Land of Nephi, for behold, the king will seek thy life; But thou shalt go to the Land of Middoni, for behold, thy brother Aaron and also Muloki and Ammah are in prison."
