Passage: Alma 15:2 - Alma 15:22

2 And it came to pass that the Amalekites, because of their loss, were exceeding angry;
3 And when they saw that they could not seek revenge from the Nephites, they began to stir up the people in anger against their brethren, the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi; Therefore, they began again to destroy them.
4 Now this people again refused to take their arms, And they suffered themselves to be slain according to the desires of their enemy.
5 Now when Ammon and his brethren saw this work of destruction among those who they so dearly beloved and among those who had so dearly beloved them- for they were treated as though they were angels sent from God to save them from everlasting destruction-
6 Therefore, when Ammon and his brethren saw this great work of destruction, they were moved with compassion and they said unto the king: "Let us gather together this people of the Lord, And let us go down to the Land of Zarahemla to our brethren the Nephites and flee out of the hands of our enemies, that we be not destroyed."
7 But the king saith unto them: "Behold, the Nephites will destroy us because of the many murders and sins we have committed against them."
8 And Ammon saith: "I will go and inquire of the Lord; And if He saith unto us, 'Go down unto our brethren,' will ye go?"
9 And the king saith unto him: "Yea, if the Lord saith unto us, 'Go,' we will go down unto our brethren, And we will be their slaves until we repair unto them the many murders and sins which we have committed against them."
10 But Ammon saith unto him: "It is against the law of our brethren, which was established by my father, that there should be any slaves among them; Therefore, let us go down and rely upon the mercies of our brethren."
11 But the king saith unto him: "Inquire of the Lord and if He saith unto us, 'Go,' we will go; Otherwise, we will perish in the land."
12 And it came to pass that Ammon went and inquired of the Lord and the Lord said unto him: "Get this people out of this land, that they perish not, For Satan hath great hold on the hearts of the Amalekites which do stir up the Lamanites to anger against their brethren to slay them, Therefore, get thee out of this land; And blessed art this people in this generation, for I will preserve them."
13 And now it came to pass that Ammon went and told the king all the words which the Lord had said unto him.
14 And it came to pass that they gathered together all their people, yea, all the people of the Lord, And did gather together all their flocks and herds and departed out of the land, And came into the wilderness which divided the Land of Nephi from the Land of Zarahemla and came over near the borders of the land.
15 And it came to pass that Ammon saith unto them: "Behold, I and my brethren will go forth into the Land of Zarahemla and ye shall remain here until we return; And we will try the hearts of our brethren, whether they will that ye shall come into their land."
16 And it came to pass that as Ammon was going forth into the land, that he and his brethren met Alma over in the place of which has been spoken; And behold, this was a joyful meeting.
17 Now the joy of Ammon was so great, even that he was full, Yea, he was swallowed up in the joy of his God, even to the exhausting of his strength, And he fell again to the earth;
18 Now was not this exceeding joy? Behold, this is joy which none receiveth, save it be the truly penitent and humble seeker of happiness;
19 Now the joy of Alma in meeting his brethren was truly great, And also the joy of Aaron, of Omner and Himni; But behold, their joy was not that to exceed their strength.
20 And now it came to pass that Alma conducted his brethren back to the Land of Zarahemla, even to his own house.
21 And it came to pass that they went and told the chief judge all the things which had happened unto them in the Land of Nephi among their brethren, the Lamanites.
22 And it came to pass that the chief judge sent a proclama- tion throughout all the land, desiring the voice of the people concerning the admitting their brethren which were the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi.
