Passage: Alma 26:128 - Alma 26:148

128 "But it came to pass that we did receive food which was guarded to us by an army of two thousand men, to our assistance;
129 And this is all the assistance which we did receive, to defend ourselves and our country from falling into the hands of our enemies, yea, to contend with an enemy which was innumerable.
130 "And now the cause of these our embarrassments, or the cause why they did not send more strength unto us, we knew not; Therefore, we were grieved, and also filled with fear, lest by any means the judgments of God should come upon our land to our overthrow and utter destruction;
131 Therefore, we did pour out our souls in prayer to God that He would strengthen us and deliver us out of the hands of our enemies, Yea, and also give us strength that we might retain our cities and our lands and our possessions for the support of our people.
132 "Yea, and it came to pass that the Lord our God did visit us with assurances that He would deliver us, Yea, insomuch that He did speak peace to our souls and did grant unto us great faith and did cause us that we should hope for our deliverance in Him;
133 And we did take courage with our small force which we had received, And were fixed with a determination to conquer our enemies and to maintain our lands and our possessions and our wives and our children and the cause of our liberty.
134 "And thus we did go forth with all our might against the Lamanites which were in the City of Manti; And we did pitch our tents by the wilderness side, which was near to the city.
135 "And it came to pass on the morrow that when the Lamanites saw that we were in the borders by the wilderness, which was near the city, That they sent out their spies round about us that they might discover the number and the strength of our army.
136 "And it came to pass that when they saw that we were not strong, according to our numbers, And fearing that we should cut them off from their support, except they should come out to battle against us and kill us,
137 And also supposing that they could easily destroy us with their numerous hosts, Therefore, they began to make preparations to come out against us to battle.
138 "And when we saw that they were making preparations to come out against us, Behold, I caused that Gid, with a small number of men, should secrete himself in the wilderness, And also that Teomner should with a small number of men secrete themselves also in the wilderness.
139 "Now Gid and his men were on the right and the others on the left; And when they had thus secreted themselves, behold, I remained with the remainder of my army in that same place where we had first pitched our tents, Against the time that the Lamanites should come out to battle.
140 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites did come out with their numerous army against us;
141 And when they had come and were about to fall upon us with the sword, I caused that my men, those which were with me, should retreat into the wilderness.
142 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites did follow after us with great speed, For they were exceedingly desirous to overtake us that they might slay us; Therefore, they did follow us into the wilderness;
143 And we did pass by in the midst of Gid and Teomner insomuch that they were not discovered by the Lamanites.
144 "And it came to pass that when the Lamanites had passed by, or when the army had passed by, Gid and Teomner did rise up from their secret places and did cut off the spies of the Lamanites, that they should not return to the city.
145 "And it came to pass that when they had cut them off, They ran to the city and fell upon the guards which were left to guard the city, insomuch that they did destroy them and did take possession of the city.
146 "Now this was done because the Lamanites did suffer their whole army, save a few guards only, to be led away into the wilderness.
147 "And it came to pass that Gid and Teomner, by this means, had obtained possession of their stronghold.
148 "And it came to pass that we took our course after having traveled much in the wilderness toward the Land of Zarahemla;
