Passage: Alma 21:70 - Alma 21:90
70 And it came to pass that whomsoever of the Amalickiahites that would not enter into a covenant to support the cause of freedom that they might maintain a free government, he caused to be put to death; And there was but few which denied the covenant of freedom.
71 And it came to pass also that he caused the title of liberty to be hoisted upon every tower which was in all the land which was possessed by the Nephites. And thus Moroni planted the standard of liberty among the Nephites,
72 And they began to have peace again in the land. And thus they did maintain peace in the land, until nearly the end of the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges;
73 And Helaman and the high priests did also maintain order in the church, Yea, even for the space of four years did they have much peace and rejoicing in the church.
74 And it came to pass that there were many who died, firmly believing that their souls were redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ; Thus they went out of the world rejoicing.
75 And there were some who died with fevers, which at some seasons of the year was very frequent in the land-
76 But not so much so with fevers, because of the excellent qualities of the many plants and roots which God had prepared to remove the cause of diseases to which man was susceptible by the nature of the climate-
77 But there were many who died with old age. And those who died in the faith of Christ are happy in Him, as we must needs suppose.
78 Now I will return in our record to Amalickiah and those which had fled with him into the wilderness. For behold, he had taken those which went with him and went up into the Land of Nephi, among the Lamanites, And did stir up the Lamanites to anger against the people of Nephi, Insomuch that the king of the Lamanites sent a proclama- tion throughout all his land, among all his people, that they should gather themselves together again to go to battle against the Nephites.
79 And it came to pass that when the proclamation had gone forth among them, they were exceeding fraid- Yea, they feared to displease the king, And they also feared to go to battle against the Nephites, lest they should lose their lives.
80 And it came to pass that they would not, or the more part of them would not obey the commandment of the king.
81 And now it came to pass that the king was wroth because of their disobedience; Therefore, he gave Amalickiah the command of that part of his army which was obedient unto his commands, And commanded him that he should go forth and compel them to arms.
82 Now behold, this was the desire of Amalickiah; For he being a very subtle man to do evil, Therefore, he laid the plan in his heart to dethrone the king of the Lamanites.
83 And now he had got the command of those parts of the Lamanites which were in favor of the king, And he sought to gain favor of those which were not obedient.
84 Therefore, he went forward to the place which was called Oneidah-for thither had all the Lamanites fled- For they discovered the army coming and they supposed that they were coming to destroy them, Therefore, they fled to Oneidah to the place of arms.
85 And they had appointed a man to be a king and a leader over them, Being fixed in their minds with a determined resolution that they would not be subjected to go against the Nephites.
86 And it came to pass that they had gathered themselves together upon the top of the mount, which was called Antipas, in preparation to battle.
87 Now it was not Amalickiah's intention to give them battle, according to the commandments of the king, But behold, it was his intention to gain favor with the armies of the Lamanites, that he might place himself at their head and dethrone the king and take possession of the kingdom.
88 And behold, it came to pass that he caused his army to pitch their tents in the valley which was near the Mount Antipas.
89 And it came to pass that when it was night, he sent a secret embassy into the Mount Antipas, Desiring that the leader of those which were upon the mount, whose name was Lehonti, that he should come down to the foot of the mount, for he desired to speak with him.
90 And it came to pass that when Lehonti received the mes- sage, he durst not go down to the foot of the mount.
