Passage: Alma 20:72 - Alma 20:92

72 "And now if ye do not this, behold, ye are in our hands, And I will command my men that they shall fall upon you and inflict the wounds of death in your bodies, that ye may become extinct;
73 And then we will see who shall have power over this people, Yea, we will see who shall be brought into bondage."
74 And now it came to pass that when Zerahemnah heard these sayings, He came forth and delivered up his sword and his scimitar and his bow into the hands of Moroni and saith unto him:
75 "Behold, here are our weapons of war- We will deliver them up unto you and we will not suffer ourselves to take an oath unto you, which we know that we shall break, and also our children; But take our weapons of war and suffer that we may depart into the wilderness, Otherwise we will retain our swords and we will perish or conquer.
76 "Behold, we are not of your faith; We do not believe that it is God that hath delivered us into your hands, But we believe it is your cunning that hath preserved you from our swords;
77 Behold, it is your breastplates and your shields that hath preserved you."
78 And now, when Zerahemnah had made an end of speaking these words, Moroni returned the sword and the weapons of war which he had received unto Zerahemnah, saying: "Behold, we will end the conflict;
79 Now I cannot retain the words which I have spoken, Therefore, as the Lord liveth, ye shall not depart except ye depart with an oath that ye will not return again against us to war;
80 Now as ye are in our hands, we will spill your blood upon the ground, Or ye shall submit to the conditions to which I have proposed."
81 And now when Moroni had said these words, Zerahemnah retained his sword, And he was angry with Moroni and he rushed forward that he might slay Moroni;
82 But as he raised his sword, behold, one of Moroni's soldiers smote it even to the earth and it broke by the hilt, And he also smote Zerahemnah that he took off his scalp and it fell to the earth;
83 And Zerahemnah withdrew from before them into the midst of his soldiers.
84 And it came to pass that the soldier which stood by, which smote off the scalp of Zerahemnah, took up the scalp from off the ground by the hair and laid it upon the point of his sword and stretched it forth unto them, saying unto them with a loud voice-saying:
85 "Even as this scalp hath fallen to the earth, which is the scalp of your chief, So shall ye fall to the earth, except ye will deliver up your weapons of war and depart with a covenant of peace."
86 Now there were many when they heard these words and saw the scalp which was upon the sword, they were struck with fear, And many came forth and threw down their weapons of war at the feet of Moroni and entered into a covenant of peace;
87 And as many as entered into a covenant, they suffered to depart into the wilderness.
88 Now it came to pass that Zerahemnah was exceeding wroth, And he did stir up the remainder of his soldiers to anger, to contend more powerfully against the Nephites.
89 And now Moroni was angry because of the stubbornness of the Lamanites, Therefore, he commanded his people that they should fall upon them and slay them.
90 And it came to pass that they began to slay them, Yea, and the Lamanites did contend with their swords and their mights;
91 But behold, their naked skins and their bare heads were exposed to the sharp swords of the Nephites, Yea, behold, they were pierced and smitten,
92 yea, and did fall exceeding fast before the swords of the Nephites; And they began to be swept down, even as the soldier of Moroni had prophesied.
