Alma 14:48 And it came to pass that their brethren, the Lamanites, made preparations for war and came up to the Land of Nephi for the purpose of dethroning the king and to place another in his stead, and also of destroying the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi out of the land.

Alma 14:49 And it came to pass that when the people saw that they were coming against them, they went out to meet them and prostrated themselves before them to the earth and began to call on the name of the Lord;

Alma 14:53 And it came to pass that they threw down their weapons of war and they would not take them again, for they were stung for the murders which they had committed; And they came down, even as their brethren, relying upon the mercies of those whose arms were lifted to slay them.

Alma 14:54 And it came to pass that the people of God were joined that day by more than the number which had been slain; And those which had been slain were righteous people, therefore we have no reason to doubt but what they are saved;

Alma 14:59 And behold, now it came to pass that those Lamanites were more angry because they had slain their brethren, Therefore, they swore vengeance upon the Nephites;

Alma 14:66 And it came to pass that those rulers which were the remnant of the children of Amulon caused that they should be put to death, yea, all those that believed in these things;

Alma 14:73 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that they could not overpower the Nephites, they returned again to their own land; And many of them came over to dwell in the Land of Ishmael and the Land of Nephi and did join themselves to the people of God, which were the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi,

Alma 14:76 Now they did not suppose that salvation came by the law of Moses, but the law of Moses did serve to strengthen their faith in Christ;

Alma 14:110 "But behold, my beloved brethren, we came into the wilderness, not with the intent to destroy our brethren, but with the intent that perhaps we might save some few of their souls.

Alma 15:2 And it came to pass that the Amalekites, because of their loss, were exceeding angry;

Alma 15:12 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."

Alma 15:13 And now it came to pass that Ammon went and told the king all the words which the Lord had said unto him.

Alma 15:14 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.

Alma 15:15 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."

Alma 15:16 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.

Alma 15:21 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.

Alma 15:22 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.

Alma 15:23 And it came to pass that the voice of the people came, saying: "Behold, we will give up the Land of Jershon which is on the east by the sea, which joins the Land Bountiful, which is on the south of the Land Bountiful; And this Land Jershon is the land which we will give unto our brethren for an inheritance.

Alma 15:25 And this we do for our brethren on account of their fear to take up arms against their brethren, lest they should commit sin; And this their great fear came because of their sore repentance which they had on account of their many murders and their awful wickedness.

Alma 15:27 Now it came to pass that when Ammon had heard this, he returned to the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi, and also Alma with him, into the wilderness where they had pitched their tents and made known unto them all these things;

Alma 15:28 And Alma also related unto them his conversion with Ammon and Aaron and his brethren. And it came to pass that it did cause great joy among them.

Alma 15:29 And it came to pass that they went down into the Land of Jershon and took possession of the Land of Jershon. And they were called by the Nephites, the people of Ammon,

Alma 15:36 And now it came to pass that after the people of Ammon were established in the Land of Jershon, and a church also established in the Land of Jershon, And the armies of the Nephites were set round about the Land of Jershon, yea, in all the borders round about the Land of Zarahemla, Behold, the armies of the Lamanites had followed their brethren into the wilderness;

Alma 16:1 Behold, now it came to pass that after the people of Ammon were established in the Land of Jershon, Yea, and also after the Lamanites were driven out of the land and their dead were buried by the people of the land-

Alma 16:3 But it came to pass that after they had buried their dead, and also after the days of fasting and mourning and prayer-and it was in the sixteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi-there began to be continual peace throughout all the land, Yea, and the people did observe to keep the commandments of the Lord;

Alma 16:6 And it came to pass in the commencement of the seventeenth year of the reign of the judges, there was continual peace;

Alma 16:7 But it came to pass in the latter end of the seventeenth year, there came a man into the Land of Zarahemla, And he was antichrist, for he began to preach unto the people against the prophecies which had been spoken by the prophets concerning the coming of Christ.

Alma 16:22 And it came to pass that he caused that he should be carried out of the land.

Alma 16:23 And it came to pass that he came over into the Land of Gideon and began to preach unto them also; And here he did not have much success, for he was taken and bound and carried before the high priest, and also the chief judge over the land.

Alma 16:24 And it came to pass that the high priest saith unto him: "Why do ye go about perverting the ways of the Lord?

Alma 16:38 And it came to pass that when he was brought before Alma and the chief judge, that he did go on in the same manner as he did in the Land of Gideon, Yea, he went on to blasphemy;

Alma 16:57 And now it came to pass that Alma said unto him: "Behold, I am grieved because of the hardness of your heart, Yea, that ye will still resist the Spirit of the truth that thy soul may be destroyed;

Alma 16:72 And it came to pass that the curse was not taken off of Korihor, But he was cast out and went about from house to house a begging for his food.

Alma 16:74 And it came to pass that they were all convinced of the wickedness of Korihor, therefore they were all converted again unto the Lord; And this put an end to the iniquity after the manner of Korihor;

Alma 16:76 And it came to pass that as he went forth among the people- Yea, among a people which had separated themselves from the Nephites and called themselves Zoramites, being led by a man whose name was Zoram- And as he went forth amongst them, behold, he was run upon and trodden down, even until he was dead.

Alma 16:78 Now it came to pass that after the end of Korihor, Alma having received tidings that the Zoramites were perverting the ways of the Lord and that Zoram, which was their leader, was leading the hearts of the people to bow down to dumb idols, etc., His heart again began to sicken because of the iniquity of the people;

Alma 16:95 Now it came to pass that after Alma and his brethren and his sons had heard these prayers, they were astonished beyond all measure,

Alma 16:116 Now it came to pass that when Alma had said these words, that he clapped his hands upon all they which were with him;

Alma 16:121 And it came to pass that they did go forth and began to preach the word of God unto the people, entering into their synagogues and into their houses, Yea, and even they did preach the word in their streets.

Alma 16:122 And it came to pass that after much labor among them, they began to have success among the poorer class of the people; For behold, they were cast out of the synagogues because of the coarseness of their apparel,

Alma 16:124 Now as Alma was teaching and speaking unto the people upon the Hill Onidah, there came a great multitude unto him which were those of which have been spoken which were poor in heart because of their poverty as to the things of the world;

Alma 16:125 And they came unto Alma, And the one which was the most foremost among them saith unto him: "Behold, what shall these my brethren do? For they are despised of all men because of their poverty, yea, and more especially by our priests;

Alma 16:201 And now it came to pass that after Alma had spoken these words unto them, he sat down upon the ground, And Amulek arose and began to teach them, saying: "My brethren, I think that it is impossible that ye should be ignorant of the things which have been spoken concerning the coming of Christ, who is taught by us to be the Son of God;

Alma 16:240 Now it came to pass that after Amulek had made an end of these words, They withdrew themselves from the multitude and came over into the Land of Jershon;

Alma 16:241 Yea, and the rest of the brethren, after they had preached the word unto the Zoramites, also came over into the Land of Jershon.

Alma 16:242 And it came to pass that after the more popular part of the Zoramites had consulted together concerning the words which had been preached unto them, They were angry because of the word, for it did destroy their craft; Therefore, they would not hearken unto the words.

Alma 16:245 And it came to pass that after they had found out the minds of all the people, Those which were in favor of the words which had been spoken by Alma and his brethren were cast out of the land- And they were many- And they came over also into the Land of Jershon.

Alma 16:246 And it came to pass that Alma and his brethren did minister unto them.

Alma 16:247 Now the people of the Zoramites were angry with the people of Ammon which were in Jershon; And the chief ruler of the Zoramites, being a very wicked man, sent over unto the people of Ammon desiring them that they should cast out of their land all those which came over from them into their land,

Alma 16:249 And now the people of Ammon did not fear their words, Therefore, they did not cast them out; But they did receive all the poor of the Zoramites that came over unto them,

Alma 16:254 And the people of Ammon departed out of the Land of Jershon and came over into the Land of Melek, And gave place in the Land of Jershon for the armies of the Nephites, that they might contend with the armies of the Lamanites and the armies of the Zoramites.

Alma 17:6 And behold, he spake unto us as it were the voice of thunder, And the whole earth did tremble beneath our feet, And we all fell to the earth, for the fear of the Lord came upon us.

Alma 17:8 And it came to pass that I fell to the earth; And it was for the space of three days and three nights that I could not open my mouth, neither had I the use of my limbs;

Alma 17:15 And it came to pass that as I was thus racked with torment-while I was harrowed up by the memory of my many sins- Behold, I remembered also to have heard my father proph- esy unto the people concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God, to atone for the sins of the world.

Alma 17:63 For behold, they murdered all the prophets of the Lord which came among them to declare unto them concerning their iniquities, And the blood of those which they murdered did cry unto the Lord their God for vengeance upon those which were their murderers.

Alma 18:9 And it came to pass that I was three days and three nights in the most bitter pain and anguish of soul, And never, until I did cry out unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy, did I receive a remission of my sins;

Alma 20:1 And now it came to pass that the sons of Alma did go forth among the people to declare the word unto them; And Alma also, himself, could not rest and he also went forth.

Alma 20:4 For behold, it came to pass that the Zoramites became Lamanites; Therefore, in the commencement of the eighteenth year, the people of the Nephites saw that the Lamanites were coming upon them, Therefore, they made preparations for war, Yea, they gathered together their armies in the Land of Jershon.

Alma 20:5 And it came to pass that the Lamanites came with their thousands, And they came into the Land of Antionum, which was the land of the Zoramites; And a man by the name of Zerahemnah was their leader.

Alma 20:17 And it came to pass as the armies of the Lamanites had gathered together in the Land of Antionum, Behold, the armies of the Nephites were prepared to meet them in the Land of Jershon.

Alma 20:20 And it came to pass that he met the Lamanites in the borders of Jershon; And his people were armed with swords and with scimitars and all manner of weapons of war.

Alma 20:21 And it came to pass that when the armies of the Lamanites saw that the people of Nephi- Or that Moroni had prepared his people with breastplates and with armshields, yea, and also shields to defend their heads, And also they were dressed with thick clothing-

Alma 20:25 Behold, now it came to pass that they durst not come against the Nephites in the borders of Jershon; Therefore, they departed out of the Land of Antionum into the wilderness and took their journey round about in the wilderness, away by the head of the River Sidon, that they might come into the Land of Manti and take possession of the land, For they did not suppose that the armies of Moroni would know whither they had gone.

Alma 20:26 But it came to pass as soon as they had departed into the wilderness, Moroni sent spies into the wilderness to watch their camp, And Moroni, also knowing of the prophecies of Alma, sent certain men unto him, desiring him that he should inquire of the Lord whither the armies of the Nephites should go to defend themselves against the Lamanites.

Alma 20:27 And it came to pass that the word of the Lord came unto Alma, And Alma informed the messengers of Moroni that the armies of the Lamanites were marching round about in the wilderness, That they might come over into the Land of Manti, That they might commence an attack upon the more weak part of the people;

Alma 20:31 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that his army should be secreted in the valley which was near the bank of the River Sidon, which was on the west of the River Sidon in the wilderness;

Alma 20:37 And it came to pass that the Lamanites came up on the north of the hill where a part of the army of Moroni was concealed.

Alma 20:38 And it came to pass that as the Lamanites had passed the Hill Riplah and came into the valley and began to cross the River Sidon, The army, which was concealed on the south of the hill, who was led by a man whose name was Lehi, And he led his army forth and encircled the Lamanites about on the east in their rear.

Alma 20:39 And it came to pass that the Lamanites, when they saw the Nephites coming upon them in their rear, turned them about and began to contend with the army of Lehi; And the work of death commenced on both sides,

Alma 20:42 And it came to pass that the Lamanites became frightened because of the great destruction among them, even until they began to flee toward the River Sidon;

Alma 20:45 And it came to pass that Moroni and his army met the army of the Lamanites in the valley on the other side of the River Sidon. And it came to pass that Moroni and his army began to fall upon them and to slay them.

Alma 20:46 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did flee again before them, toward the Land of Manti, And they were met again by the armies of Moroni.

Alma 20:53 And it came to pass that when the men of Moroni saw the fierceness and the anger of the Lamanites, they were about to shrink and flee from them;

Alma 20:55 And it came to pass that they turned upon the Lamanites, And they cried with one voice unto the Lord their God for their liberty and their freedom from bondage;

Alma 20:61 And it came to pass that they did stop and withdrew a pace from them;

Alma 20:74 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:

Alma 20:84 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:

Alma 20:86 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;

Alma 20:88 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.

Alma 20:90 And it came to pass that they began to slay them, Yea, and the Lamanites did contend with their swords and their mights;

Alma 20:94 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that the work of death should cease again among the people.

Alma 20:95 And it came to pass that he took the weapons of war from the Lamanites; And after they had entered into a covenant with him of peace, they were suffered to depart into the wilderness.

Alma 20:97 And it came to pass that they did cast their dead into the waters of Sidon, And they have gone forth and are buried in the depths of the sea;

Alma 20:98 And the armies of the Nephites, or of Moroni, returned and came to their houses and their lands.

Alma 21:1 Behold, now it came to pass that the people of Nephi were exceedingly rejoiced because the Lord had again delivered them out of the hands of their enemies;

Alma 21:3 And it came to pass in the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi- that Alma came unto his son Helaman and saith unto him: "Believest thou the words which I spake unto thee concerning those records which have been kept?"

Alma 21:16 And now it came to pass that after Alma had said these things to Helaman, he blessed him, and also his other sons, And he also blessed the earth for the righteous' sake.

Alma 21:20 And when Alma had done this, he departed out of the Land of Zarahemla as if to go into the Land of Melek. And it came to pass that he was never heard of more; As to his death or burial, we know not of.

Alma 21:23 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi that Helaman went forth among the people to declare the word unto them;

Alma 21:26 And it came to pass that they did appoint priests and teachers throughout all the land, over all the churches.

Alma 21:27 And now it came to pass that after Helaman and his brethren had appointed priests and teachers over the churches, that there arose a dissension among them, And they would not give heed to the words of Helaman and his brethren,

Alma 21:29 And it came to pass that as many as would not hearken to the words of Helaman and his brethren were gathered together against their brethren;

Alma 21:40 And now it came to pass that when Moroni, which was the chief commander of the armies of the Nephites, had heard of these dissensions, he was angry with Amalickiah.

Alma 21:41 And it came to pass that he rent his coat, And he took a piece thereof and wrote upon it- "In memory of our God, our religion and freedom and our peace, our wives and our children"- And he fastened it upon the end of a pole thereof;

Alma 21:46 And it came to pass that when he had poured out his soul to God, He gave all the land which was south of the Land Desolation, Yea, and in fine all the land, both on the north and on the south, a chosen land and the land of liberty.

Alma 21:50 And it came to pass that when Moroni had proclaimed these words, Behold, the people came running together with their armors girded about their loins, rending their garments in token, or as a covenant, that they would not forsake the Lord their God-

Alma 21:61 And now it came to pass that when Moroni had said these words, he went forth, and also sent forth in all the parts of the land where there were dissensions, And gathered together all the people which were desirous to maintain their liberty to stand against Amalickiah and those which had dissented, which were called Amalickiahites.

Alma 21:62 And it came to pass that when Amalickiah saw that the people of Moroni were more numerous than the Amalickiahites, And he also saw that his people were doubtful concerning the justice of the cause in which they had undertaken, Therefore, fearing that he should not gain the point, he took those of his people which would and departed into the Land of Nephi.

Alma 21:66 And it came to pass that he took his army and marched out with his tents into the wilderness to cut off the course of Amalickiah in the wilderness.

Alma 21:67 And it came to pass that he did according to his desires, And marched forth into the wilderness and headed the armies of Amalickiah.

Alma 21:68 And it came to pass that Amalickiah fled with a small number of his men, And the remainder were delivered up into the hands of Moroni and were taken back into the Land of Zarahemla.

Alma 21:70 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.

Alma 21:71 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,

Alma 21:74 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.

Alma 21:79 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.

Alma 21:80 And it came to pass that they would not, or the more part of them would not obey the commandment of the king.

Alma 21:81 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.

Alma 21:86 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.

Alma 21:88 And behold, it came to pass that he caused his army to pitch their tents in the valley which was near the Mount Antipas.

Alma 21:89 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.

Alma 21:90 And it came to pass that when Lehonti received the mes- sage, he durst not go down to the foot of the mount.

Alma 21:91 And it came to pass that Amalickiah sent again the second time, desiring him to come down. And it came to pass that Lehonti would not; And he sent again the third time.

Alma 21:92 And it came to pass that when Amalickiah found that he could not get Lehonti to come down off from the mount, he went up into the mount, nearly to Lehonti's camp; And he sent again the fourth time his message unto Lehonti, desiring that he would come down and that he would bring his guards with him.

Alma 21:93 And it came to pass that when Lehonti had come down with his guards to Amalickiah, That Amalickiah desired him to come down with his army in the nighttime and surround those men in their camps over whom the king had given him command, And that he would deliver them up into Lehonti's hands if he would make him, Amalickiah, a second leader over the whole army.

Alma 21:94 And it came to pass that Lehonti came down with his men and surrounded the men of Amalickiah, So that before they awoke at the dawn of the day, they were surrounded by the armies of Lehonti.

Alma 21:95 And it came to pass that when they saw that they were surrounded, They pled with Amalickiah that he would suffer them to fall in with their brethren, that they might not be destroyed.

Alma 21:96 Now this was the very thing which Amalickiah desired. And it came to pass that he delivered his men, contrary to the commands of the king;

Alma 21:99 And it came to pass that Amalickiah caused that one of his servants should administer poison by degrees to Lehonti, that he died;

Alma 21:101 And it came to pass that Amalickiah marched with his armies-for he had gained his desires-to the Land of Nephi, to the City of Nephi, which was the chief city;

Alma 21:102 And the king came out to meet him with his guards, For he supposed that Amalickiah had fulfilled his com- mands and that Amalickiah had gathered together so great an army for to go against the Nephites to battle.

Alma 21:103 But behold, as the king came out to meet him, Amalickiah caused that his servants should go forth to meet the king;

Alma 21:105 And it came to pass that the king put forth his hand to raise them, As was the custom with the Lamanites and a token of peace, which custom they had taken from the Nephites.

Alma 21:106 And it came to pass that when he had raised the first from the ground, Behold, he stabbed the king to the heart and he fell to the earth.

Alma 21:108 And it came to pass that Amalickiah commanded that his armies should march forth and see what had happened to the king,

Alma 21:110 And it came to pass that when all they which loved the king, when they heard these words, came forth and pursued after the servants of the king.

Alma 21:111 Now when the servants of the king saw an army pursuing after them, They were frightened again, and fled into the wilderness, and came over into the Land of Zarahemla, and joined the people of Ammon;

Alma 21:113 And it came to pass on the morrow, he entered the City Nephi with his armies and took possession of the city.

Alma 21:114 And now it came to pass that the queen, when she had heard that the king was slain- For Amalickiah had sent an embassy to the queen, informing her that the king had been slain by his servants, that he had pursued them with his army, but it was in vain, and they had made their escape-

Alma 21:116 And it came to pass that Amalickiah took the same servant that slew the king, and also they which were with him, And went in unto the queen, unto the place where she sat,

Alma 21:119 And it came to pass that Amalickiah sought the favor of the queen and took her unto him to wife. And thus by his fraud and by the assistance of his cunning servants, he obtained the kingdom,

Alma 21:123 And now it came to pass that as soon as Amalickiah had obtained the kingdom, he began to inspire the hearts of the Lamanites against the people of Nephi, Yea, he did appoint men to speak unto the Lamanites from their towers against the Nephites.

Alma 21:127 And it came to pass that they took their camp and moved forth toward the Land of Zarahemla in the wilderness.

Alma 21:128 Now it came to pass that while Amalickiah had thus been obtaining power by fraud and deceit, Moroni, on the other hand, had been a preparing the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord their God.

Alma 21:149 And now it came to pass in the eleventh month of the nineteenth year, on the tenth day of the month, The armies of the Lamanites were seen approaching toward the Land of Ammonihah;

Alma 21:159 And it came to pass that the Lamanites, or the Amalickiahites, were exceedingly astonished at their manner of preparation for war.

Alma 21:165 Therefore, they marched forward to the Land of Noah with a firm determination, Yea, their chief captains came forward and took an oath that they would destroy the people of that city.

Alma 21:169 And now behold, it came to pass that when the Lamanites had found that Lehi commanded the city, They were again disappointed, for they feared Lehi exceedingly; Nevertheless, their chief captains had sworn with an oath to attack the city, Therefore, they brought up their armies.

Alma 21:173 And it came to pass that the captains of the Lamanites brought up their armies before the place of entrance, And began to contend with the Nephites, to get into their place of security;

Alma 21:180 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that their chief captains were all slain, they fled into the wilderness.

Alma 21:181 And it came to pass that they returned to the Land of Nephi to inform their king, Amalickiah, who was a Nephite by birth, concerning their great loss.

Alma 21:182 And it came to pass that he was exceeding angry with his people because he had not obtained his desire over the Nephites- He had not subjected them to the yoke of bondage;

Alma 21:184 And it came to pass that on the other hand, the people of Nephi did thank the Lord their God because of His miraculous power in delivering them from the hands of their enemies.

Alma 22:1 And now it came to pass that Moroni did not stop making preparations for war-or to defend themselves against the Lamanites. For he caused that his armies should commence- in the commencement of the twentieth year of the reign of the judges- That they should commence in digging up heaps of earth round about all the cities throughout all the land which was possessed by the Nephites.

Alma 22:7 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that his armies should go forth into the East Wilderness; Yea, and they went forth and drove all the Lamanites which were in the East Wilderness into their own lands, which were south of the Land of Zarahemla.

Alma 22:9 And it came to pass that when Moroni had driven all the Lamanites out of the East Wilderness, which was north of the lands of their own possessions, He caused that the inhabitants, which were in the Land of Zarahemla and in the land round about, should go forth into the East Wilderness, even to the borders by the seashore, and possess the land.

Alma 22:14 And it came to pass that the Nephites began the foundation of a city, And they called the name of the city Moroni; And it was by the East Sea, And it was on the south by the line of the possessions of the Lamanites.

Alma 22:25 And it came to pass that the twenty and second year of the reign of the judges also ended in peace, Yea, and also the twenty and third year.

Alma 22:26 And it came to pass that in the commencement of the twenty and fourth year of the reign of the judges, There would also have been peace among the people of Nephi had it not been for a contention which took place among them concerning the Land of Lehi and the Land of Morionton, which joined upon the borders of Lehi, Both of which were on the borders by the seashore.

Alma 22:29 And it came to pass that when the people of Morionton, which were led by a man whose name was Morionton, found that the people of Lehi had fled to the camp of Moroni, They were exceeding fearful lest the army of Moroni should come upon them and destroy them;

Alma 22:32 And it came to pass that she fled and came over to the camp of Moroni and told Moroni all things concerning the matter; And also concerning their intentions to flee into the Land Northward.

Alma 22:35 And it came to pass that they did not head them until they had come to the borders of the Land Desolation; And there they did head them by the Narrow Pass which led by the sea into the Land Northward, Yea, by the sea on the west and on the east.

Alma 22:36 And it came to pass that the army which was sent by Moroni-which was led by a man whose name was Teancum-did meet the people of Morionton;

Alma 22:40 And it came to pass that in the same year that the people of Nephi had peace restored unto them, That Nephihah, the second chief judge, died, having filled the judgment seat with perfect uprightness before God;

Alma 22:42 Behold, it came to pass that the son of Nephihah was appointed to fill the judgment seat in the stead of his father; Yea, he was appointed chief judge and governor over the people, with an oath and sacred ordinance to judge righteously, And to keep the peace and the freedom of the people, And to grant unto them their sacred privileges to worship the Lord their God,

Alma 23:1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, They having established peace between the people of Lehi and the people of Morionton concerning their lands, And having commenced the twenty and fifth year in peace;

Alma 23:5 And it came to pass that those who were desirous that Pahoron should be dethroned from the judgment seat were called Kingmen, For they were desirous that the law should be altered in a manner to overthrow the free government and to establish a king over the land;

Alma 23:7 And it came to pass that this matter of their contention was settled by the voice of the people.

Alma 23:8 And it came to pass that the voice of the people came in the favor of the Freemen; And Pahoron retained the judgment seat which caused much rejoicing among the brethren of Pahoron, and also among the people of liberty, Which also put the Kingmen to silence, that they durst not oppose, but were obliged to maintain the cause of freedom.

Alma 23:16 And it came to pass that when the men which were called Kingmen had heard that the Lamanites were coming down to battle against them, They were glad in their hearts and they refused to take up arms; For they were so wroth with the chief judge, and also with the people of liberty, that they would not take up arms to defend their country.

Alma 23:17 And it came to pass that when Moroni saw this, and also saw that the Lamanites were coming into the borders of the land, He was exceeding wroth because of the stubbornness of those people of whom he had labored with so much diligence to preserve; Yea, he was exceeding wroth; His soul was filled with anger against them.

Alma 23:18 And it came to pass that he sent a petition, with the voice of the people, unto the governor of the land, Desiring that he should heed it and give him, Moroni, power to compel those dissenters to defend their country or to put them to death;

Alma 23:20 And it came to pass that it was granted, according to the voice of the people.

Alma 23:21 And it came to pass that Moroni commanded that his army should go against those Kingmen to pull down their pride and their nobility and level them with the earth, Or they should take up arms and support the cause of liberty.

Alma 23:22 And it came to pass that the armies did march forth against them; And they did pull down their pride and their nobility, insomuch that as they did lift their weapons of war to fight against the men of Moroni, They were hewn down and leveled to the earth.

Alma 23:23 And it came to pass that there were four thousand of those dissenters which were hewn down by the sword; And those of their leaders which were not slain in battle were taken and cast into prison, For there was no time for their trials at this period;

Alma 23:27 Behold, it came to pass that while Moroni was thus breaking down the wars and contentions among his own people, And subjecting them to peace and civilization, And making regulations to prepare for war against the Lamanites, Behold, the Lamanites had come into the Land of Moroni, which was in the borders by the seashore.

Alma 23:28 And it came to pass that the Nephites were not sufficiently strong in the City of Moroni; Therefore, Amalickiah did drive them, slaying many.

Alma 23:29 And it came to pass that Amalickiah took possession of the city, yea, possession of all their fortifications.

Alma 23:30 And those which fled out of the City of Moroni came to the City of Nephihah; And also the people of the City of Lehi gathered themselves together and made preparations and were ready to receive the Lamanites to battle.

Alma 23:31 But it came to pass that Amalickiah would not suffer the Lamanites to go against the City of Nephihah to battle, but kept them down by the seashore, leaving men in every city to maintain and defend it.

Alma 23:34 And it came to pass that they marched to the borders of the Land Bountiful, driving the Nephites before them and slaying many.

Alma 23:35 But it came to pass that they were met by Teancum, who had slain Morionton and had headed his people in his flight.

Alma 23:36 And it came to pass that he headed Amalickiah also, as he was marching forth with his numerous army that he might take possession of the Land Bountiful, and also the Land Northward;

Alma 23:38 And it came to pass that they did harass them, Insomuch that they did slay them, even until it was dark.

Alma 23:39 And it came to pass that Teancum and his men did pitch their tents in the borders of the Land Bountiful; And Amalickiah did pitch his tents in the borders on the beach by the seashore. And after this manner were they driven.

Alma 23:40 And it came to pass that when the night had come, Teancum and his servant stole forth and went out by night and went into the camp of Amalickiah; And behold, sleep had overpowered them because of their much fatigue which was caused by the labors and heat of the day.

Alma 23:41 And it came to pass that Teancum stole privily into the tent of the king and put a javelin to his heart; And he did cause the death of the king immediately, that he did not awake his servants.

Alma 24:1 And now it came to pass in the twenty and sixth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, Behold, when the Lamanites awoke on the first morning of the first month, Behold, they found Amalickiah was dead in his own tent; And they also saw that Teancum was ready to give them battle on that day;

Alma 24:3 And it came to pass that the brother of Amalickiah was appointed king over the people, And his name was Ammaron; Thus King Ammaron, the brother of King Amalickiah, was appointed to reign in his stead.

Alma 24:4 And it came to pass that he did command that his people should maintain those cities which they had taken by the shedding of blood; For they had not taken any cities, save they had lost much blood.

Alma 24:8 And it came to pass that he kept thus preparing for war until Moroni had sent a large number of men to strengthen his army.

Alma 24:17 But behold, it came to pass in the twentieth and seventh year of the reign of the judges that Teancum- By the command of Moroni who had established armies to protect the south and the west borders of the land, had begun his march toward the Land of Bountiful, that he might assist Teancum with his men in retaking the cities which they had lost-

Alma 24:18 And it came to pass that Teancum had received orders to make an attack upon the City of Mulek and retake it if it were possible.

Alma 24:19 And it came to pass that Teancum made preparations to make an attack upon the City of Mulek and march forth with his army against the Lamanites; But he saw that it was impossible that he could overpower them while they were in their fortifications;

Alma 24:21 And it came to pass that Moroni did arrive with his army to the Land of Bountiful in the latter end of the twenty and seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.

Alma 24:24 And it came to pass that they sent embassies to the armies of the Lamanites, which protected the City of Mulek, to their leader whose name was Jacob, desiring him that he would come out with his armies to meet them upon the plains between the two cities.

Alma 24:26 And it came to pass that Moroni having no hopes of meeting them upon fair grounds, Therefore, he resolved upon a plan that he might decoy the Lamanites out of their strongholds;

Alma 24:29 And it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites did march forth against Teancum, supposing by their numbers to overpower Teancum because of the smallness of his numbers;

Alma 24:31 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that he began to flee, they took courage and pursued them with vigor;

Alma 24:35 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did pursue Teancum until they came near the City Bountiful; And then they were met by Lehi and a small army which had been left to protect the City Bountiful.

Alma 24:39 And it came to pass that before the Lamanites had retreated far, they were surrounded by the Nephites-by the men of Moroni on one hand and the men of Lehi on the other, all of whom were fresh and full of strength; But the Lamanites were wearied because of their long march,

Alma 24:41 And it came to pass that Jacob being their leader, being also a Zoramite and having an unconquerable spirit, He led the Lamanites forth to battle with exceeding fury against Moroni-

Alma 24:44 And it came to pass that they fought on both hands with exceeding fury; And there were many slain on both sides, Yea, and Moroni was wounded and Jacob was killed;

Alma 24:47 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites had heard these words, Their chief captains-all those which were not slain- came forth and threw down their weapons of war at the feet of Moroni, And also commanded their men that they should do the same.

Alma 24:50 And it came to pass that they did set guards over the prisoners of the Lamanites, And did compel them to go forth and bury their dead, yea, and also the dead of the Nephites which were slain; And Moroni placed men over them to guard them while they should perform their labors.

Alma 24:53 And it came to pass that after the Lamanites had finished burying their dead, and also the dead of the Nephites, They were marched back into the Land Bountiful.

Alma 24:59 And it came to pass that Moroni had thus gained a victory over one of the greatest of the armies of the Lamanites, And had obtained possession of the City Mulek which was one of the strongest holds of the Lamanites in the Land of Nephi; And thus he had also built a stronghold to retain his prisoners.

Alma 24:60 And it came to pass that he did no more attempt a battle with the Lamanites in that year; But he did employ his men in preparing for war, Yea, and in making fortifications to guard against the Lamanites, Yea, and also delivering their women and their children from famine and affliction, And providing food for their armies.

Alma 24:61 And now it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites on the West Sea South-while in the absence of Moroni on account of some intrigue amongst the Nephites, which caused dissensions amongst them- had gained some ground over the Nephites, Yea, insomuch that they had obtained possession of a number of their cities in that part of the land;

Alma 24:67 But it came to pass that when they saw the danger and the many afflictions and tribulations which the Nephites bore for them, They were moved with compassion and were desirous to take up arms in the defense of their country;

Alma 24:70 But behold, it came to pass they had many sons which had not entered into a covenant that they would not take their weapons of war to defend themselves against their enemies;

Alma 24:78 And now it came to pass that Helaman did march at the head of his two thousand stripling soldiers to the support of the people in the borders of the land on the south by the West Sea.

Alma 25:1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and ninth year of the judges that Ammaron sent unto Moroni, desiring that he would exchange prisoners.

Alma 25:2 And it came to pass that Moroni felt to rejoice exceedingly at this request; For he desired the provisions which were imparted for the support of the Lamanite prisoners for the support of his own people, And he also desired his own people for the strengthening of his army.

Alma 25:16 Now it came to pass that Ammaron, when he had received this epistle, he was angry; And he wrote another epistle unto Moroni; And these are the words which he wrote, saying: "I am Ammaron, the king of the Lamanites; I am the brother of Amalickiah whom ye have murdered.

Alma 25:27 Now it came to pass that when Moroni had received this epistle, he was more angry because he knew that Ammaron had a perfect knowledge of his fraud- Yea, he knew that Ammaron knew that it was not a just cause that had caused him to wage a war against the people of Nephi-

Alma 25:30 And now it came to pass that when Moroni had said these words, he caused that a search should be made among his men that perhaps he might find a man which was a descendant of Laman among them.

Alma 25:31 And it came to pass that they found one whose name was Laman; And he was one of the servants of the king which was murdered by Amalickiah.

Alma 25:34 And it came to pass that when it was evening, Laman went to the guards which were over the Nephites, And behold, they saw him coming and they hailed him;

Alma 25:39 And it came to pass that they did take of the wine freely, And it was pleasant to their taste; Therefore, they took of it more freely; And it was strong, having been prepared in its strength.

Alma 25:40 And it came to pass they did drink and were merry; And by and by they were all drunken.

Alma 25:51 And it came to pass that he did cause the Lamanites which he had taken prisoners, that they should commence a labor in strengthening the fortifications round about the City Gid.

Alma 25:52 And it came to pass that when he had fortified the City Gid according to his desires, he caused that his prisoners should be taken to the City Bountiful;

Alma 25:54 And it came to pass that they did-notwithstanding all the intrigues of the Lamanites-keep and protect all the prisoners which they had taken, And also maintain all the ground and the advantage which they had retaken.

Alma 25:55 And it came to pass that the Nephites began again to be victorious and to reclaim their rights and their privileges.

Alma 25:61 And now it came to pass that it was expedient for Moroni to make preparations to attack the City Morionton;

Alma 26:1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the thirtieth year of the reign of the judges, in the second day on the first month, Moroni received an epistle from Helaman stating the affairs of the people in that quarter of the land.

Alma 26:19 "And now it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that Antipus had received a greater strength to his army, They were compelled, by the orders of Ammaron, to not come against the City of Judeah, or against us to battle.

Alma 26:24 "And it came to pass that we kept spies out round about to watch the movements of the Lamanites, That they might not pass us by night nor by day to make an attack upon our other cities which were on the northward;

Alma 26:30 "And now it came to pass in the second month of this year, there was brought unto us many provisions from the fathers of those my two thousand sons;

Alma 26:37 "And it came to pass that we did march forth as if, with our provisions, to go to that city.

Alma 26:38 "And it came to pass that Antipus did march forth with a part of his army, leaving the remainder to maintain the city;

Alma 26:39 But he did not march forth until I had gone forth with my little army and came near the City Antiparah;

Alma 26:41 "And it came to pass that when they had been informed by their spies, They came forth with their army and marched against us.

Alma 26:42 "And it came to pass that we did flee before them, northward.

Alma 26:47 "And it came to pass that before the dawn of the morning, behold, the Lamanites were pursuing us;

Alma 26:50 "And it came to pass that again when the light of the morning came, we saw the Lamanites upon us, And we did flee before them;

Alma 26:51 But it came to pass that they did not pursue us far before they halted; And it was in the morning of the third day on the seventh month.

Alma 26:58 "And it came to pass that I did return with my two thou- sand against these Lamanites which had pursued us.

Alma 26:62 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites took courage and began to pursue them; And thus were the Lamanites pursuing them with great vigor when Helaman came upon their rear with his two thousand and began to slay them exceedingly, Insomuch that the whole army of the Lamanites halted and turned upon Helaman.

Alma 26:63 "Now when the people of Antipus saw that the Lamanites had turned them about, They gathered together their men and came again upon the rear of the Lamanites.

Alma 26:64 "And now it came to pass that we-the people of Nephi, the people of Antipus and I with my two thousand- did surround the Lamanites and did slay them, Yea, insomuch that they were compelled to deliver up their weapons of war, and also themselves as prisoners of war.

Alma 26:65 "And now it came to pass that when they had surrendered themselves up unto us, Behold, I numbered those young men which had fought with me, fearing lest there were many of them slain;

Alma 26:70 "And now it came to pass that I received an epistle from Ammaron, the king, Stating that if I would deliver up those prisoners of war which we had taken, that he would deliver up the City of Antiparah.

Alma 26:75 "And it came to pass that in the commencement of the twenty and ninth year, We received a supply of provisions, and also an addition to our army, from the Land of Zarahemla and from the land round about, To the number of six thousand men, besides sixty of the sons of the Ammonites which had come to join their brethren, my little band of two thousand.

Alma 26:77 "And it came to pass that it was our desire to wage a battle with the army which was placed to protect the City Cumeni.

Alma 26:79 "And it came to pass that we did camp round about the city for many nights; But we did sleep upon our swords and keep guards, that the Lamanites could not come upon us by night and slay us, which they attempted many times; But as many times as they attempted this, their blood was spilt.

Alma 26:84 "And it came to pass that not many days had passed away before the Lamanites began to lose all hopes of succor; Therefore, they yielded up the city into our hands. "And thus we had accomplished our designs in obtaining the City Cumeni.

Alma 26:85 "But it came to pass that our prisoners were so numerous that, notwithstanding the enormity of our number, We were obliged to employ all our force to keep them or put them to death.

Alma 26:90 Therefore, we selected a part of our men and gave them charge over our prisoners to go down to the Land of Zarahemla. "But it came to pass that on the morrow, they did return;

Alma 26:93 And it came to pass that those men which we sent with the prisoners did arrive in season to check them as they were about to overpower us.

Alma 26:99 "And it came to pass that after the Lamanites had fled, I immediately gave orders that my men which had been wounded should be taken from among the dead and caused that their wounds should be dressed.

Alma 26:105 "And now it came to pass that after we had thus taken care of our wounded men and had buried our dead, and also the dead of the Lamanites, which were many, Behold, we did inquire of Gid concerning the prisoners which they had started to go down to the Land of Zarahemla with;

Alma 26:108 And it came to pass that we did meet the spies of our armies which had been sent out to watch the camp of the Lamanites,

Alma 26:110 'And it came to pass that our prisoners did hear their cries, which caused them to take courage; And they did raise up in rebellion against us.

Alma 26:111 'And it came to pass because of their rebellion, we did cause that our swords should come upon them.

Alma 26:112 'And it came to pass that they did, in a body, run upon our swords, in the which the greater number of them were slain, And the remainder of them broke through and fled from us.

Alma 26:116 "Now it came to pass that when I, Helaman, had heard these words of Gid, I was filled with exceeding joy, Because of the goodness of God in preserving us that we might not all perish;

Alma 26:118 "And behold, now it came to pass that our next object was to obtain the City of Manti; But behold, there was no way that we could lead them out of the city by our small bands,

Alma 26:123 "And it came to pass that I thus did send an embassy to the great governor of our land, to acquaint him concerning the affairs of our people.

Alma 26:124 "And it came to pass that we did wait to receive provisions and strength from the Land of Zarahemla;

Alma 26:127 "And it came to pass that we did wait in these difficult circumstances for the space of many months, even until we were about to perish for the want of food.

Alma 26:128 "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;

Alma 26:132 "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;

Alma 26:135 "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.

Alma 26:136 "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,

Alma 26:140 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites did come out with their numerous army against us;

Alma 26:142 "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;

Alma 26:144 "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.

Alma 26:145 "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.

Alma 26:148 "And it came to pass that we took our course after having traveled much in the wilderness toward the Land of Zarahemla;

Alma 26:151 "Now it came to pass that when it was night, that I caused that my men should not sleep, But that they should march forward by another way toward the Land of Manti;

Alma 26:153 "And thus it came to pass that by this stratagem, we did take possession of the City of Manti without the shedding of blood.

Alma 26:154 "And it came to pass that when the armies of the Lamanites did arrive near the city and saw that we were prepared to meet them, They were astonished exceedingly and struck with great fear, insomuch that they did flee into the wilderness.

Alma 26:155 "Yea, and it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites did flee out of all this quarter of the land;

Alma 26:160 "For we do not know the cause that the government does not grant us more strength; Neither do those men which came up unto us know why we have not received greater strength;

Alma 27:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, after Moroni had received and had read Helaman's epistle, He was exceedingly rejoiced because of the welfare, yea, the exceeding success which Helaman had had in obtaining those lands which were lost;

Alma 27:3 And it came to pass that he immediately sent an epistle to Pahoron, Desiring that he should cause men to be gathered together to strengthen Helaman, or the armies of Helaman, Insomuch that he might with ease maintain that part of the land which he had been so miraculously prospered in retaining.

Alma 27:4 And it came to pass when Moroni had sent this epistle to the Land of Zarahemla, He began again to lay a plan that he might obtain the remainder of those possessions and cities which the Lamanites had taken from them.

Alma 27:5 And it came to pass that while Moroni was thus making preparations to go against the Lamanites to battle, Behold, the people of Nephihah which were gathered together from the City of Moroni and the City of Lehi and the City of Morionton were attacked by the Lamanites.

Alma 27:7 And thus being exceeding numerous, yea, and receiving strength from day to day, By the command of Ammaron they came forth against the people of Nephihah, And they did begin to slay them with an exceeding great slaughter.

Alma 27:8 And their armies were so numerous that the remainder of the people of Nephihah were obliged to flee before them; And they came even and joined the army of Moroni.

Alma 27:13 And it came to pass that Moroni was angry with the government because of their indifference concerning the freedom of their country.

Alma 27:14 And it came to pass that he wrote again to the governor of the land, which was Pahoron, And these are the words which he wrote, saying: "Behold, I direct mine epistle to Pahoron, in the City of Zarahemla, which is the chief judge and the governor over the land, And also to all those who hath been chosen by this people to govern and manage the affairs of this war;

Alma 28:1 Behold, now it came to pass that soon after Moroni had sent his epistle unto the chief governor, He received an epistle from Pahoron, the chief governor.

Alma 29:1 And now it came to pass that when Moroni had received this epistle, His heart did take courage and was filled with exceeding great joy because of the faithfulness of Pahoron, That he was not also a traitor to the freedom and cause of his country;

Alma 29:3 And it came to pass that Moroni took a small number of men according to the desire of Pahoron, And gave Lehi and Teancum command over the remainder of his army, And took his march toward the Land of Gideon;

Alma 29:5 And it came to pass that thousands did flock unto his standard and did take up their swords in the defense of their freedom, that they might not come into bondage.

Alma 29:6 And thus when Moroni had gathered together whatsoever men he could in all his march, he came to the Land of Gideon; And uniting his forces with that of Pahoron, they became exceeding strong, Even stronger than the men of Pachus, which was the king of those dissenters which had driven out the Freemen out of the Land of Zarahemla and had taken possession of the land.

Alma 29:7 And it came to pass that Moroni and Pahoron went down with their armies into the Land of Zarahemla, And went forth against the city and did meet the men of Pachus, insomuch that they did come to battle.

Alma 29:13 And it came to pass in the commencement of the thirty and first year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, Moroni immediately caused that provisions should be sent, and also an army of six thousand men should be sent unto Helaman, to assist him in preserving that part of the land;

Alma 29:15 And it came to pass that this was done to fortify the land against the Lamanites.

Alma 29:16 And it came to pass that Moroni and Pahoron, leaving a large body of men in the Land of Zarahemla, Took their march with a large body of men toward the Land of Nephihah, Being determined to overthrow the Lamanites in that city.

Alma 29:17 And it came to pass that as they were marching toward the land, They took a large body of men of the Lamanites and slew many of them, And took their provisions and their weapons of war.

Alma 29:18 And it came to pass after they had taken them, They caused them to enter into a covenant that they would no more take up their weapons of war against the Nephites;

Alma 29:20 And it came to pass that when they had sent them away, they pursued their march toward the Land of Nephihah.

Alma 29:21 And it came to pass that when they had come to the City Nephihah, They did pitch their tents in the Plains of Nephihah, which is near the City Nephihah.

Alma 29:23 And when the night came, Moroni went forth in the darkness of the night and came upon the top of the wall to spy out in what part of the city the Lamanites did camp with their army.

Alma 29:24 And it came to pass that they were on the east by the entrance, And they were all asleep.

Alma 29:26 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that his men should march forth and come up upon the top of the wall, And let themselves down into that part of the city- yea, even on the west-where the Lamanites did not camp with their armies.

Alma 29:27 And it came to pass that they were all let down into the city by night, by the means of their strong cords and their ladders; Thus when the morning came, they were all within the walls of the city.

Alma 29:31 Now it came to pass that as many of the Lamanites that were prisoners were desirous to join the people of Ammon and become a free people.

Alma 29:32 And it came to pass that as many as were desirous, unto them it was granted, according to their desires; Therefore, all the prisoners of the Lamanites did join the people of Ammon, And did begin to labor exceedingly, tilling the ground, raising all manner of grain and flocks and herds of every kind;

Alma 29:34 Now it came to pass that Moroni- After he had obtained possession of the City of Nephihah, Having taken many prisoners, which did reduce the armies of the Lamanites exceedingly, And having retained many of the Nephites which had been taken prisoners, which did strengthen the army of Moroni exceedingly- Therefore, Moroni went forth from the Land of Nephihah to the Land of Lehi.

Alma 29:35 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that Moroni was a coming against them, They were again frightened and fled before the army of Moroni.

Alma 29:36 And it came to pass that Moroni and his army did pursue them from city to city, until they were met by Lehi and Teancum; And the Lamanites fled from Lehi and Teancum, even down upon the borders by the seashore, until they came to the Land of Moroni.

Alma 29:39 And it came to pass that Moroni and Lehi and Teancum did encamp with their armies round about in the borders of the Land of Moroni, Insomuch that the Lamanites were encircled about in the borders by the wilderness on the south, And in the borders by the wilderness on the east; And thus they did encamp for the night.

Alma 29:42 And it came to pass that Teancum-in his anger- did go forth into the camp of the Lamanites and did let himself down over the walls of the city;

Alma 29:45 Now it came to pass that when Lehi and Moroni knew that Teancum was dead, they were exceeding sorrowful; For behold, he had been a man which had fought valiantly for his country, yea, a true friend to liberty, And he had suffered very many exceeding sore afflictions;

Alma 29:47 Now it came to pass that Moroni marched forth on the morrow and came upon the Lamanites, insomuch that they did slay them with a great slaughter; And they did drive them out of the land; And they did flee, even that they did not return at that time against the Nephites.

Alma 29:52 And it came to pass that after Moroni had fortified those parts of the land which were most exposed to the Lamanites until they were sufficiently strong, he returned to the City of Zarahemla, And also Helaman returned to the place of his inheritance; And there was once more peace established among the people of Nephi.

Alma 29:56 And it came to pass that they did establish again the church of God throughout all the land; Yea, and regulations were made concerning the law;

Alma 29:62 And it came to pass that all these things were done.

Alma 30:1 And it came to pass in the commencement of the thirty and sixth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, That Shiblon took possession of those sacred things which had been delivered unto Helaman by Alma;

Alma 30:3 And it came to pass that Moroni died also;

Alma 30:5 And it came to pass that in the thirty and seventh year of the reign of the judges, There was a large company of men-even to the amount of five thousand and four hundred men, with their wives and their children-departed out of the Land of Zarahemla into the land which was northward.

Alma 30:6 And it came to pass that Hagoth, he being an exceeding curious man, Therefore, he went forth and built him an exceeding large ship on the borders of the Land Bountiful, by the Land Desolation, And launched it forth into the West Sea, by the Narrow Neck which led into the Land Northward.

Alma 30:11 And it came to pass that they were never heard of more, And we suppose that they are drowned up in the depths of the sea.

Alma 30:12 And it came to pass that one other ship also did sail forth, And whither she did go, we know not.

Alma 30:13 And it came to pass that in this year, there were many people which went forth into the Land Northward; And thus ended the thirty and eighth year.

Alma 30:14 And it came to pass in the thirty and ninth year of the reign of the judges, Shiblon died also; And Coreanton had gone forth to the Land Northward in a ship, to carry forth provisions unto those people which had gone forth into that land;

Alma 30:18 And it came to pass also in this year that there were some dissenters which had gone forth unto the Lamanites; And they were stirred up again to anger against the Nephites.

Alma 30:19 And also in this same year, they came down with a numerous army to war against the people of Moronihah, or against the army of Moronihah, In the which they were beaten and driven back again to their own lands, suffering great loss.

Helaman 1:1 And now behold, it came to pass in the commencement of the fortieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, There began to be a serious difficulty among the people of the Nephites;

Helaman 1:5 Nevertheless, it came to pass that Pahoron was appointed by the voice of the people to be a chief judge and a governor over the people of Nephi.

Helaman 1:6 And it came to pass that Pacumeni, when he saw that he could not obtain the judgment seat, He did unite with the voice of the people.

Helaman 1:8 And it came to pass as he was about to do this, Behold, he was taken and was tried according to the voice of the people and condemned unto death; For he had raised up in rebellion and sought to destroy the liberty of the people.

Helaman 1:15 And it came to pass in the forty and first year of the reign of the judges that the Lamanites had gathered together an innumerable army of men, And armed them with swords and with scimitars, and with bows and with arrows, and with headplates and with breastplates, and with all manner of shields of every kind; And they came down again, that they might pitch battle against the Nephites.

Helaman 1:19 And it came to pass that because of so much contention and so much difficulty in the government, That they had not kept sufficient guards in the Land of Zarahemla; For they had supposed that the Lamanites durst not come into the heart of their lands to attack that great City Zarahemla.

Helaman 1:20 But it came to pass that Coriantumr did march forth at the head of his numerous host and came upon the inhabitants of the city, And their march was with such exceeding great speed that there was no time for the Nephites to gather together their armies;

Helaman 1:22 And it came to pass that Pacumeni, which was the chief judge, did flee before Coriantumr, even to the walls of the city.

Helaman 1:23 And it came to pass that Coriantumr did smite him against the wall, insomuch that he died. And thus ended the days of Pacumeni.

Helaman 1:31 And thus he did; And he did head them before they came to the Land Bountiful and gave unto them battle, Insomuch that they began to retreat back toward the Land of Zarahemla.

Helaman 1:32 And it came to pass that Moronihah did head them in their retreat and did give unto them battle, Insomuch that it became an exceeding bloody battle; Yea, many were slain; And among the number which were slain, Coriantumr was also found.

Helaman 1:35 And it came to pass that Moronihah took possession of the City of Zarahemla again, And caused that the Lamanites which had been taken prisoners should depart out of the land in peace.

Helaman 1:37 And it came to pass in the forty and second year of the reign of the judges, After Moronihah had established again the peace between the Nephites and the Lamanites, Behold, there was no one to fill the judgment seat; Therefore, there began to be a contention again among the people concerning who should fill the judgment seat.

Helaman 1:38 And it came to pass that Helaman, which was the son of Helaman, was appointed to fill the judgment seat by the voice of the people.

Helaman 1:42 And it came to pass as he went forth toward the judgment seat to destroy Helaman, Behold, one of the servants of Helaman-having been out by night and having obtained through disguise a knowledge of those plans which had been laid by this band to destroy Helaman-

Helaman 1:43 And it came to pass that he met Kishcumen and he gave unto him a sign; Therefore, Kishcumen made known unto him the object of his desire, Desiring that he would conduct him to the judgment seat, that he might murder Helaman.

Helaman 1:44 And it came to pass that when the servant of Helaman had known all the heart of Kishcumen, And how that it was his object to murder, And also that it was the object of all those which belonged to his band to murder and to rob and to gain power- and this was their secret plan and their combination- The servant of Helaman saith unto Kishcumen: "Let us go forth unto the judgment seat."

Helaman 1:47 And it came to pass that Helaman did send forth to take this band of robbers and secret murderers, that they might be executed according to the law.

Helaman 2:1 And now it came to pass in the forty and third year of the reign of the judges, There was no contention among the people of Nephi, save it were a little pride which was in the church, Which did cause some little dissensions among the people, Which affairs were settled in the ending of the forty and third year.

Helaman 2:3 And it came to pass in the forty and sixth year, there were much contentions and many dissensions, In the which there were an exceeding great many which departed out of the Land of Zarahemla and went forth unto the Land Northward to inherit the land.

Helaman 2:4 And they did travel to an exceeding great distance, insomuch that they came to large bodies of water and many rivers;

Helaman 2:8 And it came to pass that they did multiply and spread, And did go forth from the Land Southward to the Land Northward, And did spread insomuch that they began to cover the face of the whole earth- from the sea south to the sea north, from the sea west to the sea east.

Helaman 2:10 And it came to pass as timber was exceeding scarce in the Land Northward, They did send forth much by the way of shipping; And thus they did enable the people in the Land Northward, that they might build many cities, both of wood and of cement.

Helaman 2:11 And it came to pass that there were many of the people of Ammon which were Lamanites by birth did also go forth into this land.

Helaman 2:17 And it came to pass that there was still great contentions in the land, Yea, even in the forty and seventh year, And also in the forty and eighth year.

Helaman 2:19 And it came to pass that he had two sons- He gave unto the eldest the name of Nephi, and unto the youngest the name of Lehi; And they began to grow up unto the Lord.

Helaman 2:20 And it came to pass that the wars and contentions began to cease, in a small degree, among the people of the Nephites, In the latter end of the forty and eighth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.

Helaman 2:21 And it came to pass in the forty and ninth year of the reign of the judges, there was continual peace established in the land- All, save it were the secret combinations which Gaddianton the robber had established in the more settled parts of the land, Which at that time were not known unto those which were at the head of government; Therefore, they were not destroyed out of the land.

Helaman 2:22 And it came to pass that in this same year, there was exceeding great prosperity in the church, Insomuch that there were thousands who did join themselves unto the church and were baptized unto repentance;

Helaman 2:24 And it came to pass that the work of the Lord did prosper, unto the baptizing and the uniting to the church of God many souls, yea, even tens of thousands.

Helaman 2:28 And it came to pass that there was peace and exceeding great joy in the remainder of the forty and ninth year. Yea, and also there was continual peace and great joy in the fiftieth year of the reign of the judges.

Helaman 2:32 And it came to pass that the fifty and second year ended in peace also, Save it were the exceeding great pride which had got into the hearts of the people; And it was because of their exceeding great riches and their prosperity in the land; And it did grow upon them from day to day.

Helaman 2:33 And it came to pass in the fifty and third year of the reign of the judges, Helaman died and his eldest son Nephi began to reign in his stead.

Helaman 2:34 And it came to pass that he did fill the judgment seat with justice and equity; Yea, he did keep the commandments of God and did walk in the ways of his father.

Helaman 2:35 And it came to pass in the fifty and fourth year, there were many dissensions in the church, And there was also a contention among the people, insomuch that there was much bloodshed; And the rebellious part were slain and driven out of the land, And they did go unto the king of the Lamanites.

Helaman 2:36 And it came to pass that they did endeavor to stir up the Lamanites to war against the Nephites; But behold, the Lamanites were exceeding fraid, insomuch that they would not hearken to the words of those dissenters.

Helaman 2:37 But it came to pass in the fifty and sixth year of the reign of the judges, there were dissenters which went up from the Nephites unto the Lamanites; And they succeeded with those others in stirring them up to anger against the Nephites; And they were all that year preparing for war.

Helaman 2:42 And it came to pass in the sixtieth year of the reign of the judges, Moronihah did succeed with his armies in obtaining many parts of the land; Yea, they retained many cities which had fallen into the hands of the Lamanites.

Helaman 2:43 And it came to pass in the sixty and first year of the reign of the judges, They succeeded in retaining even the half of all their possessions.

Helaman 2:49 And it came to pass that they did repent, And inasmuch as they did repent, they did begin to prosper;

Helaman 2:52 And it came to pass in the sixty and second year of the reign of the judges that Moronihah could obtain no more possessions over the Lamanites;

Helaman 2:54 And it came to pass because of the greatness of the number of the Lamanites, the Nephites were in great fear lest they should be overpowered and trodden down and slain and destroyed;

Helaman 2:63 And it came to pass that in this same year, Behold, Nephi delivered up the judgment seat to a man whose name was Cezoram.

Helaman 2:66 And it came to pass that Nephi had become weary because of their iniquity, And he yielded up the judgment seat and took it upon him to preach the word of God all the remainder of his days, And his brother Lehi also, all the remainder of his days; For they remembered the words which their father Helaman spake unto them.

Helaman 2:68 "Behold, I have given unto you the names of our first parents which came out of the Land of Jerusalem; And this I have done that when you remember your names, that ye may remember them; And when ye remember them, ye may remember their works; And when ye remember their works, ye may know how that it is said, and also written, that they were good.

Helaman 2:76 And it came to pass that these were the words which Helaman taught to his sons; Yea, he did teach them many things which are not written, and also many things which are written.

Helaman 2:79 And it came to pass that they did preach with great power, Insomuch that they did confound many of those dissenters which had gone over from the Nephites, Insomuch that they came forth and did confess their sins and were baptized unto repentance, And immediately returned to the Nephites to endeavor to repair unto them the wrongs which they had done.

Helaman 2:80 And it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi did preach unto the Lamanites with such great power and authority- For they had power and authority given unto them that they might speak, And they also had what they should speak given unto them-

Helaman 2:82 And it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi did proceed from thence to go to the Land of Nephi.

Helaman 2:83 And it came to pass that they were taken by an army of the Lamanites and cast into prison; Yea, even in that same prison in which Ammon and his brethren were cast by the servants of Limhi;

Helaman 2:85 And it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi were encircled about as if by fire, Even insomuch that they durst not lay their hands upon them for fear, lest they should be burned.

Helaman 2:89 And it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi did stand forth and began to speak unto them, saying: "Fear not! For behold, it is God that hath shown unto you this marvelous thing, In the which is shown unto you that ye cannot lay your hands on us to slay us."

Helaman 2:92 And it came to pass that they were overshadowed with a cloud of darkness, And an awful, solemn fear came upon them.

Helaman 2:93 And it came to pass that there came a voice as if it were above the cloud of darkness, saying: "Repent ye, repent ye! And seek no more to destroy My servants which I have sent unto you to declare good tidings!"

Helaman 2:94 And it came to pass when they heard this voice and beheld that it was not a voice of thunder- Neither was it a voice of a great tumultuous noise, But behold, it was a still voice of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper, And it did pierce even to the very soul-

Helaman 2:96 And behold, the voice came again, saying: "Repent ye, repent ye! for the kingdom of heaven is at hand; And seek no more to destroy My servants!"

Helaman 2:97 And it came to pass that the earth shook again and the walls trembled; And also again the third time the voice came and did speak unto them marvelous words which cannot be uttered by man; And the walls did tremble again and the earth shook as if it were about to divide asunder.

Helaman 2:98 And it came to pass that the Lamanites could not flee because of the cloud of darkness which did overshadow them; Yea, and also they were immovable because of the fear which did come upon them.

Helaman 2:100 And it came to pass that he turned him about, And behold, he saw through the cloud of darkness the faces of Nephi and Lehi; And behold, they did shine exceedingly, even as the face of angels;

Helaman 2:102 And it came to pass that this man did cry unto the multitude that they might turn and look.

Helaman 2:106 And it came to pass that the Lamanites said unto him: "What shall we do that this cloud of darkness may be removed from overshadowing us?"

Helaman 2:108 And it came to pass that they all did begin to cry unto the voice of Him which had shook the earth; Yea, they did cry even until the cloud of darkness was dispersed.

Helaman 2:109 And it came to pass that when they cast their eyes about and saw that the cloud of darkness was dispersed from overshadowing them, And behold, they saw that they were encircled about, yea, every soul, by a pillar of fire;

Helaman 2:112 And it came to pass that there came a voice unto them, yea, a pleasant voice, as if it were a whisper, saying: "Peace, peace be unto you because of your faith in My Well-Beloved which was from the foundation of the world."

Helaman 2:113 And now when they heard this, they cast up their eyes as if to behold from whence the voice came; And behold, they saw the heavens open, And angels came down out of heaven and ministered unto them;

Helaman 2:115 And it came to pass that they did go forth and did minister unto the people, Declaring throughout all the regions round about all the things which they had heard and seen, Insomuch that the more part of the Lamanites were convinced of them because of the greatness of the evidences which they had received;

Helaman 2:117 And it came to pass that they did yield up unto the Nephites the lands of their possession.

Helaman 2:118 And it came to pass that when the sixty and second year of the reign of the judges had ended, all these things had happened; And the Lamanites had become, the more part of them, a righteous people, Insomuch that their righteousness did exceed that of the Nephites because of their firmness and their steadiness in the faith.

Helaman 2:122 And it came to pass that many of the Lamanites did come down into the Land of Zarahemla, And did declare unto the people of the Nephites the manner of their conversion, And did exhort them to faith and repentance;

Helaman 2:124 And it came to pass that many of the Lamanites did go into the Land Northward; And also Nephi and Lehi went into the Land Northward to preach unto the people.

Helaman 2:127 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did also go whithersoever they would, Whether it were among the Lamanites or among the Nephites; And thus they did have free intercourse one with another for to buy and to sell and to get gain, according to their desire.

Helaman 2:128 And it came to pass that they became exceeding rich, both the Lamanites and the Nephites; And they did have an exceeding plenty of gold and of silver and of all manner of precious metals, Both in the Land South and in the Land North.

Helaman 2:136 And it came to pass that in the sixty and sixth year of the reign of the judges, Behold, Cezoram was murdered by an unknown hand as he sat upon the judgment seat.

Helaman 2:137 And it came to pass that in the same year, that his son which had been appointed by the people in his stead was also murdered; And thus ended the sixty and sixth year.

Helaman 2:144 And now it came to pass that when the Lamanites found that there were robbers among them, They were exceeding sorrowful; And they did use every means whatsoever was in their power to destroy them off the face of the earth.

Helaman 2:146 And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs and their secret words; And this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, That whatsoever wickedness his brother should do, he should not be injured by his brother, Nor by those who did belong to his band who had taken this covenant.

Helaman 2:154 And it was that same being which led on the people which came from that Tower into this land, Which spread the works of darkness and abominations over all the face of the land, until he dragged the people down to an entire destruction and to an everlasting hell.

Helaman 2:159 And it came to pass that all these iniquities did come unto them in the space of not many years, Insomuch that the more part of it had come unto them in the sixty and seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.

Helaman 2:164 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did hunt the band of robbers of Gaddianton; And they did preach the word of God among the more wicked part of them, Insomuch that this band of robbers was utterly destroyed from among the Lamanites.

Helaman 2:165 And it came to pass on the other hand, that the Nephites did build them up and support them, beginning at the more wicked part of them, Until they had overspread all the land of the Nephites and had seduced the more part of the righteous, Until they had come down to believe in their works and partake of their spoils and to join with them in their secret murders and combinations.

Helaman 2:168 And it came to pass that thus ended the sixty and eighth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.

Helaman 3:1 Behold, now it came to pass in the sixty and ninth year of the reign of the judges over the people of the Nephites that Nephi, the son of Helaman, returned to the Land of Zarahemla from the Land Northward; For he had been forth among the people which were in the Land Northward, And did preach the word of God unto them, And did prophesy many things unto them;

Helaman 3:6 And he did exclaim in the agony of his soul: "O that I could have had my days in the days when my father Nephi first came out of the Land of Jerusalem! That I could have joyed with him in the Promised Land!

Helaman 3:10 And behold, now it came to pass that it was upon a tower which was in the garden of Nephi- which was by the highway which led to the chief market which was in the City of Zarahemla-

Helaman 3:12 And it came to pass that there were certain men passing by and saw Nephi as he was a pouring out his soul unto God upon the tower; And they ran and told the people what they had seen; And the people came together in multitudes that they might know the cause of so great mourning for the wickedness of the people.

Helaman 3:14 And it came to pass that he opened his mouth and said unto them: "Behold, why have ye gathered yourselves together? That I may tell you of your iniquities?

Helaman 3:32 And now it came to pass that when Nephi had said these words, Behold, there were men which were judges, which also belonged to the secret band of Gaddianton, And they were angry;

Helaman 3:39 Now it came to pass that thus they did stir up the people to anger against Nephi and raised contentions among them; For there were some which did cry out: "Let this man alone! For he is a good man and those things which he saith will surely come to pass except we repent;

Helaman 3:42 And it came to pass that those people which sought to destroy Nephi were compelled because of their fear, that they did not lay their hands on him;

Helaman 3:44 Therefore, he was constrained to speak more unto them, saying: "Behold, my brethren, have ye not read that God gave power unto one man-even Moses- to smite upon the waters of the Red Sea? And they parted hither and thither, insomuch that the Israelites, which were our fathers, came through upon dry ground? And the waters closed upon the armies of the Egyptians and swallowed them up?

Helaman 3:67 Behold, now it came to pass that when Nephi had spoken these words, certain men which were among them ran to the judgment seat, Yea, even there were five which went;

Helaman 3:70 And it came to pass that they ran in their might and came in unto the judgment seat; And behold, the chief judge had fallen to the earth and did lie in his blood.

Helaman 3:72 But now when they saw, they believed; And fear came upon them lest all the judgments which Nephi had spoken should come upon the people; Therefore, they did quake and had fallen to the earth.

Helaman 3:76 And it came to pass that they laid hold on them and bound them and cast them into prison;

Helaman 3:78 And it came to pass that on the morrow, the people did assemble themselves together to mourn and to fast at the burial of the great and chief judge which had been slain;

Helaman 3:80 And it came to pass that they inquired among the people, saying: "Where are the five which were sent to inquire concerning the chief judge, whether he was dead?"

Helaman 3:82 And it came to pass that the judges desired that they should be brought; And they were brought, And behold, they were the five which were sent.

Helaman 3:83 And behold, the judges inquired of them to know concerning the matter, And they told them all that they had done, saying: "We ran and came to the place of the judgment seat; And when we saw all things, even as Nephi had testified, We were astonished, insomuch that we fell to the earth; And when we were recovered from our astonishment, Behold, they cast us into prison.

Helaman 3:84 "Now as for the murder of this man, we know not who hath done it, And only this much we know-we ran and came according as ye desired; And behold, he was dead according to the words of Nephi."

Helaman 3:85 And now it came to pass that the judges did expound the matter unto the people and did cry out against Nephi, saying: "Behold, we know that this Nephi must have agreed with someone to slay the judge, And then he might declare it unto us, that he might convert us unto his faith, That he might raise himself to be a great man chosen of God and a prophet.

Helaman 3:87 And it came to pass that the five were liberated on the day of the burial;

Helaman 3:106 And it came to pass that they went and did even according as Nephi had said unto them.

Helaman 3:112 And it came to pass that there arose a division among the people, Insomuch that they divided hither and thither and went their ways, leaving Nephi alone as he was standing in the midst of them.

Helaman 3:113 And it came to pass that Nephi went his way toward his own house, pondering upon the things which the Lord had shown unto him.

Helaman 3:114 And it came to pass as he was thus pondering- Being much cast down because of the wickedness of the people of the Nephites, their secret works of darkness and their murderings and their plunderings and all manner of iniquities- And it came to pass as he was thus pondering in his heart, Behold, a voice came unto him, saying:

Helaman 3:125 And behold, now it came to pass that when the Lord had spoken these words unto Nephi, he did stop and did not go unto his own house, But did return unto the multitudes which were scattered about upon the face of the land, And began to declare unto them the word of the Lord which had been spoken unto him concerning their destruction, if they did not repent.

Helaman 3:128 And it came to pass that when Nephi had declared unto them the word, Behold, they did still harden their hearts and would not hearken unto his words; Therefore, they did revile against him and did seek to lay their hands upon him, that they might cast him into prison.

Helaman 3:130 And it came to pass that thus he did go forth in the Spirit from multitude to multitude, declaring the word of God, Even until he had declared it unto them all, or sent it forth among all the people.

Helaman 3:131 And it came to pass that they would not hearken unto his words; And there began to be contentions, insomuch that they were divided against themselves and began to slay one another with the sword.

Helaman 4:1 And now it came to pass in the seventy and second year of the reign of the judges that the contentions did increase, Insomuch that there were wars throughout all the land, among all the people of Nephi;

Helaman 4:4 And it came to pass that in this year, Nephi did cry unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, do not suffer that this people shall be destroyed by the sword; But O Lord, rather let there be a famine in the land to stir them up in remembrance of the Lord their God, And perhaps they will repent and turn unto Thee."

Helaman 4:9 And it came to pass that the people saw that they were about to perish by famine, And they began to remember the Lord their God; And they began to remember the words of Nephi.

Helaman 4:11 And it came to pass that the judges did say unto Nephi according to the words which had been desired.

Helaman 4:12 And it came to pass that when Nephi saw that the people had repented and did humble themselves in sackcloth, He cried again unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, behold, this people repenteth;

Helaman 4:20 And it came to pass that in the seventy and sixth year, the Lord did turn away His anger from the people and caused that rain should fall upon the earth, Insomuch that it did bring forth her fruit in the season of her fruit.

Helaman 4:21 And it came to pass that it did bring forth her grain in the season of her grain.

Helaman 4:25 And it came to pass that the seventy and sixth year did end in peace.

Helaman 4:29 But it came to pass that Nephi and Lehi, and many of their brethren which knew concerning the true points of doctrine, having many revelations daily, Therefore, they did preach unto the people insomuch that they did put an end to their strife in that same year.

Helaman 4:30 And it came to pass that in the eightieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, There were a certain number of the dissenters from the people of Nephi which had some years before gone over unto the Lamanites and took upon themselves the name of Lamanites,

Helaman 4:35 And it came to pass that it was expedient that there should be a stop put to this work of destruction; Therefore, they sent an army of strong men into the wilderness and upon the mountains to search out this band of robbers and to destroy them;

Helaman 4:36 But behold, it came to pass that in that same year, they were driven back even into their own lands.

Helaman 4:38 And it came to pass in the commencement of the eighty and first year, they did go forth again against this band of robbers and did destroy many;

Helaman 4:40 And it came to pass that thus ended this year; And the robbers did still increase and wax strong, insomuch that they did defy the whole armies of the Nephites, and also of the Lamanites; And they did cause great fear to come unto the people upon all the face of the land;

Helaman 4:42 And now this great evil which came unto the people because of their iniquity did stir them up again in remembrance of the Lord their God.

Helaman 4:47 And it came to pass in the eighty and fifth year, they did wax stronger and stronger in their pride and in their wickedness; And thus they were ripening again for destruction; And thus ended the eighty and fifth year.

Helaman 5:1 And now it came to pass in the eighty and sixth year, the Nephites did still remain in wickedness- yea, in great wickedness- While the Lamanites did observe strictly to keep the commandments of God according to the law of Moses.

Helaman 5:2 And it came to pass that in this year there was one, Samuel, a Lamanite, came into the Land of Zarahemla and began to preach unto the people.

Helaman 5:3 And it came to pass that he did preach many days repentance unto the people, And they did cast him out; And he was about to return to his own land,

Helaman 5:4 But behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him that he should return again and prophesy unto the people whatsoever things should come into his heart.

Helaman 5:5 And it came to pass that they would not suffer that he should enter into the city; Therefore, he went and got upon the wall thereof and stretched forth his hand, And cried with a loud voice and prophesied unto the people whatsoever things the Lord put into his heart.

Helaman 5:48 'O that we had repented in the day that the word of the Lord came unto us! For behold, the land is cursed, And all things are become slippery, And we cannot hold them.

Helaman 5:54 And now it came to pass that Samuel the Lamanite did prophesy a great many more things which cannot be written.

Helaman 5:109 And now it came to pass that there were many which heard the words of Samuel the Lamanite which he spake upon the walls of the city;

Helaman 5:110 And as many as believed on his words went forth and sought for Nephi; And when they came forth and found him, they confessed unto him their sins and denied not, desiring that they might be baptized unto the Lord.

Helaman 5:116 Therefore, as many as believed on the words of Samuel went forth unto him to be baptized, For they came repenting and confessing their sins.

Helaman 5:125 But behold, it came to pass in the ninetieth year of the reign of the judges, there were great signs given unto the people, and wonders; And the words of the prophets began to be fulfilled;

3 Nephi 1:Intro The Son of Nephi Which was the Son of Helaman And Helaman was the son of Helaman, which was the son of Alma which was the son of Alma, Being a descendant of Nephi which was the son of Lehi, which came out of Jerusalem in the first year of the reign of Zedekiah, the king of Judah.

3 Nephi 1:1 Now it came to pass that the ninety and first year had passed away, And it was six hundred years from the time that Lehi left Jerusalem; And it was in the year that Lachoneus was the chief judge and the governor over the land;

3 Nephi 1:4 And it came to pass that in the commencement of the ninety and second year, Behold, the prophecies of the prophets began to be fulfilled more fully; For there began to be greater signs and greater miracles wrought among the people.

3 Nephi 1:7 And it came to pass that they did make a great uproar throughout the land; And the people which believed began to be very sorrowful, lest by any means those things which had been spoken might not come to pass;

3 Nephi 1:9 Now it came to pass that there was a day set apart by the unbelievers that all those who believed in those traditions should be put to death, except the sign should come to pass which had been given by Samuel the prophet.

3 Nephi 1:10 Now it came to pass that when Nephi, the son of Nephi, saw this wickedness of his people, his heart was exceeding sorrowful.

3 Nephi 1:11 And it came to pass that he went out and bowed himself down upon the earth and cried mightily to his God in behalf of his people, yea, those which were about to be destroyed because of their faith in the tradition of their fathers.

3 Nephi 1:12 And it came to pass that he cried mightily unto the Lord all that day; And behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: "Lift up your head and be of good cheer, for behold, the time is at hand; And on this night shall the sign be given,

3 Nephi 1:16 And it came to pass that the words which came unto Nephi were fulfilled according as they had been spoken.

3 Nephi 1:17 For he beheld at the going down of the sun there was no darkness, And the people began to be astonished because there was no darkness when the night came.

3 Nephi 1:21 And it came to pass that there was no darkness in all that night, but it was as light as though it was midday.

3 Nephi 1:22 And it came to pass that the sun did rise in the morning again, according to its proper order; And they knew that it was the day that the Lord should be born because of the sign which had been given.

3 Nephi 1:24 And it came to pass also that a new star did appear according to the word.

3 Nephi 1:25 And it came to pass from this time forth there began to be lyings sent forth among the people by Satan to harden their hearts, to the intent that they might not believe in those signs and wonders which they had seen;

3 Nephi 1:27 And it came to pass that Nephi went forth among the people, and also many others, baptizing unto repent- ance in the which there were a great remission of sins.

3 Nephi 1:30 But it came to pass that they soon became converted and were convinced of the error which they were in, For it was made known unto them that the law was not yet fulfilled and that it must be fulfilled in every whit;

3 Nephi 1:31 Yea, the word came unto them that it must be fulfilled, Yea, that one jot nor tittle should not pass away till it should all be fulfilled; Therefore, in this same year were they brought to a knowledge of their error and did confess their faults.

3 Nephi 1:33 And it came to pass that the ninety and third year did also pass away in peace, save it were for the Gaddianton robbers which did dwell upon the mountains, which did infest the land;

3 Nephi 1:35 And it came to pass that in the ninety and fourth year they began to increase in a great degree because there were many dissenters of the Nephites which did flee unto them, which did cause much sorrow unto those Nephites which did remain in the land.

3 Nephi 1:38 And it came to pass that thus passed away the ninety and fifth year also, And the people began to forget those signs and wonders which they had heard, And began to be less and less astonished at a sign or a wonder from heaven,

3 Nephi 1:41 And it came to pass that the people began to wax strong in wickedness and abominations, And they did not believe that there should be any more signs or wonders given;

3 Nephi 1:47 And it came to pass that the people did still remain in wickedness, notwithstanding the much preaching and prophesying which was sent among them; And thus passed away the tenth year also; And the eleventh year also passed away in iniquity.

3 Nephi 1:48 And it came to pass in the thirteenth year there began to be wars and contentions throughout all the land; For the Gaddianton robbers had become so numerous and did slay so many of the people, and did lay waste so many cities, and did spread so much death and carnage throughout the land, That it became expedient that all the people, both the Nephites and the Lamanites, should take up arms against them;

3 Nephi 1:51 And it came to pass that before this thirteenth year had passed away, The Nephites were threatened with utter destruction because of this war which had become exceeding sore.

3 Nephi 1:52 And it came to pass that those Lamanites which had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites; And their curse was taken from them, And their skin became white like unto the Nephites,

3 Nephi 1:54 And it came to pass in the commencement of the four- teenth year, the war between the robbers and the people of Nephi did continue and did become exceeding sore;

3 Nephi 2:1 And now it came to pass that in the sixteenth year from the coming of Christ, Lachoneus, the governor of the land, received an epistle from the leader and the governor of this band of robbers.

3 Nephi 2:13 And now it came to pass when Lachoneus received this epistle, he was exceedingly astonished because of the boldness of Giddianhi in demanding the possession of the land of the Nephites,

3 Nephi 2:22 And it came to pass that Lachoneus did appoint chief captains over all the armies of the Nephites to command them at the time that the robbers should come down out of the wilderness against them;

3 Nephi 2:29 And it came to pass in the seventeenth year in the latter end of the year, the proclamation of Lachoneus had gone forth throughout all the face of the land,

3 Nephi 2:39 And it came to pass that in the latter end of the eighteenth year, those armies of robbers had prepared for battle and began to come down and to sally forth from the hills and out of the mountains and the wilderness and their strongholds and their secret places,

3 Nephi 2:46 And it came to pass that in the nineteenth year, Giddianhi found that it was expedient that he should go up to battle against the Nephites, For there was no way that they could subsist, save it were to plunder and rob and murder;

3 Nephi 2:49 And it came to pass that they did come up to battle, And it was in the sixth month, And behold, great and terrible was the day that they did come up to battle.

3 Nephi 2:52 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites- when they saw the appearance of the army of Giddianhi-hast all fallen to the earth, And did lift their cries to the Lord their God, that He would spare them and deliver them out of the hands of their enemies.

3 Nephi 2:53 And it came to pass that when the armies of Giddianhi saw this, they began to shout with a loud voice because of their joy, For they had supposed that the Nephites had fallen with fear because of the terror of their armies;

3 Nephi 2:58 And it came to pass that Gidgiddoni commanded that his armies should pursue them as far as to the borders of the wilderness, And that they should not spare any that should fall into their hands by the way;

3 Nephi 2:60 And it came to pass that Giddianhi, who had stood and fought with boldness, was pursued as he fled; And being weary because of his much fighting, he was overtaken and slain; And thus was the end of Giddianhi the robber.

3 Nephi 2:61 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites did return again to their place of security.

3 Nephi 2:62 And it came to pass that this nineteenth year did pass away and the robbers did not come again to battle, Neither did they come in the twentieth year.

3 Nephi 2:63 But in the twenty and first year they did not come up to battle, But they came up on all sides to lay siege round about the people of Nephi;

3 Nephi 2:68 And it came to pass that the wild game became scarce in the wilderness, insomuch that the robbers were about to perish with hunger.

3 Nephi 2:70 And thus it became the desire of the people of Zemnarihah to withdraw from their design because of the great destruction which came upon them by night and by day.

3 Nephi 2:71 And it came to pass that Zemnarihah did give command unto his people that they should withdraw themselves from the siege and to march into the farthermost parts of the Land Northward.

3 Nephi 2:78 And it came to pass that they did break forth-all as one- in singing and praising their God for the great thing which He had done for them in preserving them from falling into the hands of their enemies;

3 Nephi 2:86 And now it came to pass that when they had taken all the robbers prisoners, insomuch that none did escape which were not slain, They did cast their prisoners into prison and did cause the word of God to be preached unto them;

3 Nephi 3:1 And now it came to pass that the people of the Nephites did all return to their own lands in the twenty and sixth year, Every man with his family, his flocks and his herds, his horses and his cattle and all things whatsoever did belong unto them.

3 Nephi 3:2 And it came to pass that they had not eaten up all their provisions, Therefore, they did take with them all that they had not devoured of all their grain of every kind and their gold and their silver and all their precious things,

3 Nephi 3:8 And it came to pass that there were many cities built anew and there were many old cities repaired, And there were many highways cast up and many roads made which led from city to city and from land to land and from place to place;

3 Nephi 3:10 But it came to pass in the twenty and ninth year, there began to be some disputings among the people;

3 Nephi 3:28 Now there were many of those which testified of the things pertaining to Christ, which testified boldly, which were taken and put to death secretly by the judges, that the knowledge of their death came not unto the governor of the land until after their death;

3 Nephi 3:30 Therefore, a complaint came up unto the Land of Zarahemla, to the governor of the land, against these judges which had condemned the prophets of the Lord unto death not according to the law.

3 Nephi 3:31 Now it came to pass that they were taken and brought up before the judge to be judged of their crime which they had done, according to the law which had been given by the people.

3 Nephi 3:32 Now it came to pass that those judges had many friends and kindreds; And the remainder-yea, even almost all the lawyers and the high priests-did gather themselves together and unite with the kindreds of those judges which were to be tried according to the law;

3 Nephi 3:46 And it came to pass that they were not so strong in numbers as the tribes of the people which were united together, Save it were their leaders did establish their laws, everyone according to his tribe;

3 Nephi 3:52 And it came to pass in the thirty and first year that they were divided into tribes, every man according to his family, kindred and friends;

3 Nephi 3:56 And it came to pass that Nephi- Having been visited by angels, and also the voice of the Lord, Therefore, having seen angels and being eyewitness, And having had power given unto him that he might know concerning the ministry of Christ, And also being eyewitness to their quick return from right- eousness unto their wickedness and also abominations,

3 Nephi 3:59 And it came to pass that they were angry with him, even because he had greater power than they, For it were not possible that they could disbelieve his words, For so great was his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ that angels did minister unto him daily;

3 Nephi 3:62 And it came to pass that the thirty and first year did pass away and there were but few which were converted unto the Lord;

3 Nephi 3:66 And it came to pass that thus passed away the thirty and second year also.

3 Nephi 4:1 And now it came to pass that according to our record- And we know our record to be true, For behold, it was a just man which did keep the record, For he truly did many miracles in the name of Jesus;

3 Nephi 4:3 And now it came to pass-if there was no mistake made by this man in the reckoning of our time- the thirty and third year had passed away; And the people began to look with great earnestness for the sign which had been given by the prophet Samuel the Lamanite,

3 Nephi 4:6 And it came to pass that in the thirty and fourth year, in the first month, in the fourth day of the month, There arose a great storm, such an one as never had been known in all the land;

3 Nephi 4:16 And it came to pass that when the thunderings and the lightnings and the storm and the tempest and the quakings of the earth did cease- For behold, they did last for about the space of three hours, And it was said by some that the time was greater;

3 Nephi 4:18 And it came to pass that there was thick darkness upon the face of all the land, insomuch that the inhabitants thereof which had not fallen could feel the vapor of darkness;

3 Nephi 4:21 And it came to pass that it did last for the space of three days, that there was no light seen; And there was great mourning and howling and weeping among all the people continually;

3 Nephi 4:26 And it came to pass that there was a voice heard among all the inhabitants of the earth upon all the face of this land, crying: "Wo! Wo! Wo unto this people! Wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth, except they shall repent!

3 Nephi 4:46 "I came unto My own and My own received Me not, And the scriptures concerning My coming are fulfilled;

3 Nephi 4:53 And now behold, it came to pass that all the people of the land did hear these sayings and did witness of it;

3 Nephi 4:55 And it came to pass that there came a voice again unto the people-and all the people did hear and did witness of it-saying: "O ye people of these great cities which have fallen, which are a descendant of Jacob, yea, which are of the house of Israel, O ye people of the house of Israel, How oft have I gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings and have nourished you.

3 Nephi 4:60 And now it came to pass that after the people had heard these words, Behold, they began to weep and howl again because of the loss of their kindreds and friends.

3 Nephi 4:61 And it came to pass that thus did the three days pass away.

3 Nephi 4:74 And it came to pass that in the ending of the thirty and fourth year, Behold, I will show unto you that the people of Nephi which were spared, and also they which had been called Lamanites which had been spared, did have great favors shown unto them and great blessings poured out upon their heads, Insomuch that soon after the ascension of Christ into heaven, He did truly manifest Himself unto them, showing His body unto them and ministering unto them;

3 Nephi 5:1 And now it came to pass that there were a great multitude gathered together of the people of Nephi, round about the temple which was in the Land Bountiful;

3 Nephi 5:4 And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, They heard a voice as if it came out of heaven; And they cast their eyes round about, for they understood not the voice which they heard;

3 Nephi 5:6 And it came to pass that again they heard the voice and they understood it not; And again the third time they did hear the voice and did open their ears to hear it;

3 Nephi 5:7 And their eyes were toward the sound thereof; And they did look steadfastly toward heaven from whence the sound came. And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard,

3 Nephi 5:9 And it came to pass as they understood, they cast their eyes up again toward heaven; And behold, they saw a Man descending out of heaven;

3 Nephi 5:10 And He was clothed in a white robe, And He came down and stood in the midst of them; And the eyes of the whole multitude were turned upon Him, And they durst not open their mouths, even one to another; And they wist not what it meant, for they thought it was an angel that had appeared unto them.

3 Nephi 5:11 And it came to pass that He stretched forth His hand and spake unto the people, saying: "Behold, I Am Jesus Christ of which the prophets testified that should come into the world;

3 Nephi 5:13 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words, the whole multitude fell to the earth, For they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Christ should show Himself unto them after His ascension into heaven.

3 Nephi 5:14 And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto them, saying: "Arise and come forth unto Me, That ye may thrust your hands into My side, And also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in My hands and in My feet, That ye may know that I Am the God of Israel and the God of the whole earth and have been slain for the sins of the world."

3 Nephi 5:15 And it came to pass that the multitude went forth and did thrust their hands into His side and did feel the prints of the nails in His hands and in His feet;

3 Nephi 5:17 And it came to pass that when they had all gone forth and had witnessed for themselves, they did cry out with one accord, saying: "Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God!" And they did fall down at the feet of Jesus and did worship Him.

3 Nephi 5:18 And it came to pass that He spake unto Nephi- for Nephi was among the multitude-and commanded him that he should come forth;

3 Nephi 5:44 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words unto Nephi and to those which had been called- now the number of them which had been called and received power and authority to baptize were twelve-

3 Nephi 6:1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, He looked upon the twelve whom He had chosen and saith unto them: "Remember the words which I have spoken,

3 Nephi 6:13 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, He turned again to the multitude and He did open His mouth unto them again, saying: "Verily, verily I say unto you, judge not that ye be not judged;

3 Nephi 6:36 "Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of Mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house upon a rock- And the rain descended and the floods came, And the winds blew and beat upon that house, And it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock;

3 Nephi 6:37 And everyone that heareth these sayings of Mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the sand- And the rain descended and the floods came, And the winds blew and beat upon that house, And it fell and great was the fall of it."

3 Nephi 7:1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings, He cast His eyes round about on the multitude and saith unto them: "Behold, ye have heard the things which I have taught before I ascended to My Father;

3 Nephi 7:3 And it came to pass that when Jesus had said these words, He perceived that there were some among them which marveled and wondered what He would concerning the law of Moses, For they understood not the saying that old things had passed away and that all things had become new;

3 Nephi 7:13 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, He said unto those twelve whom He had chosen: "Ye are My disciples and ye are a light unto this people, which are a remnant of the house of Joseph;

3 Nephi 8:5 And it came to pass that when Jesus had thus spoken, He cast His eyes round about again on the multitude, And behold, they were in tears and did look steadfastly upon Him as if they would ask Him to tarry a little longer with them;

3 Nephi 8:9 And it came to pass that when He had thus spoken, all the multitude with one accord did go forth with their sick and their afflicted and their lame and with their blind and with their dumb and with all they that were afflicted in any manner; And He did heal them every one as they were brought forth unto Him;

3 Nephi 8:12 And it came to pass that He commanded that their little children should be brought,

3 Nephi 8:14 And it came to pass that when they had all been brought and Jesus stood in the midst, He commanded the multitude that they should kneel down upon the ground.

3 Nephi 8:28 And it came to pass that Jesus commanded His disciples that they should bring forth some bread and wine unto Him;

3 Nephi 8:37 And it came to pass that when He had said these words, He commanded His disciples that they should take of the wine of the cup and drink of it, And that they should also give unto the multitude that they might drink of it.

3 Nephi 8:38 And it came to pass that they did so and did drink of it and were filled; And they gave unto the multitude and they did drink and they were filled.

3 Nephi 8:50 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words unto His disciples, He turned again unto the multitude and saith unto them: "Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, ye must watch and pray always, lest ye enter into temptation;

3 Nephi 8:58 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, He turned His eyes again upon the disciples whom He had chosen and saith unto them:

3 Nephi 8:70 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of these sayings, He touched with His hand the disciples whom He had chosen-one by one, even until He had touched them all-and spake unto them as He touched them;

3 Nephi 8:73 And it came to pass that when Jesus had touched them all, there came a cloud and overshadowed the multitude, that they could not see Jesus;

3 Nephi 9:1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ascended into heaven, the multitude did disperse and every man did take his wife and his children and did return to his own home;

3 Nephi 9:4 And it came to pass that on the morrow when the multitude was gathered together, Behold, Nephi and his brother whom he had raised from the dead, whose name was Timothy, and also his son, whose name was Jonas, and also Mathoni and Mathonihah, his brother, and Kumen and Kumenonhi and Jeremiah and Shemnon and Jonas and Zedekiah and Isaiah- Now these were the names of the disciples whom Jesus had chosen-

3 Nephi 9:14 And it came to pass when they were all baptized and had come up out of the water, the Holy Ghost did fall upon them, And they were filled with the Holy Ghost and with fire;

3 Nephi 9:15 And behold, they were encircled about as if it were fire; And it came down from heaven and the multitude did witness it and do bear record; And angels did come down out of heaven and did minister unto them.

3 Nephi 9:16 And it came to pass that while the angels were ministering unto the disciples, Behold, Jesus came and stood in the midst and ministered unto them.

3 Nephi 9:17 And it came to pass that He spake unto the multitude and commanded them that they should kneel down again upon the earth, and also that His disciples should kneel down upon the earth.

3 Nephi 9:18 And it came to pass that when they had all knelt down upon the earth, He commanded His disciples that they should pray;

3 Nephi 9:20 And it came to pass that Jesus departed out of the midst of them and went a little way off from them and bowed Himself to the earth, And He saith: "Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast given the Holy Ghost unto these whom I have chosen, And it is because of their belief in Me that I have chosen them out of the world;

3 Nephi 9:24 And it came to pass that when Jesus had thus prayed unto the Father, He came unto His disciples, And behold, they did still continue without ceasing to pray unto Him; And they did not multiply many words, for it was given unto them what they should pray, And they were filled with desire.

3 Nephi 9:25 And it came to pass that Jesus beheld them as they did pray unto Him, And His countenance did smile upon them, And the light of His countenance did shine upon them; And behold, they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus;

3 Nephi 9:31 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words, He came again unto His disciples; And behold, they did pray steadfastly without ceasing unto Him; And He did smile upon them again; And behold, they were white even as Jesus.

3 Nephi 9:32 And it came to pass that He went again a little way off and prayed unto the Father; And tongue cannot speak the words which He prayed, Neither can be written by man the words which He prayed;

3 Nephi 9:35 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying, He came again to the disciples and saith unto them: "So great faith have I never seen among all the Jews, Wherefore, I could not show unto them so great miracles because of their unbelief;

3 Nephi 12:7 And it came to pass that He did teach and minister unto the children of the multitude of whom hath been spoken; And He did loose their tongues, And they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things-even greater than He had revealed unto the people- And loosed their tongues that they could utter.

3 Nephi 12:8 And it came to pass that after He had ascended into heaven the second time that He showed Himself unto them, And gone unto the Father after having healed all their sick and their lame, And opened the eyes of the blind, And unstopped the ears of the deaf, And even had done all manner of cures among them, And raised a man from the dead, And had shown forth His power unto them, And had ascended unto the Father-

3 Nephi 12:9 Behold, it came to pass on the morrow that the multitude gathered themselves together, And they both saw and heard these children, yea, even babes did open their mouths and utter marvelous things; And the things which they did utter were forbidden that there should not any man write them.

4 Nephi 1:35 And they did cast them into furnaces of fire, And they came forth receiving no harm; And they also cast them into dens of wild beasts, And they did play with the wild beasts, even as a child with a lamb, And they did come forth from among them receiving no harm.

4 Nephi 1:39 And now it came to pass in this year, yea, in the two hundred and thirty and first year, There was a great division among the people.

4 Nephi 1:40 And it came to pass that in this year, there arose a people which were called the Nephites, And they were true believers in Christ; And among them there were those which were called by the Lamanites-Jacobites and Josephites and Zoramites;

Mormon 1:34 And it came to pass that the Nephites began to repent of their iniquity and began to cry, even as had been prophesied by Samuel the prophet; For behold, no man could keep that which was his own, for the thieves and the robbers and the murderers and the magic art and the witchcraft which was in the land;

Mormon 1:36 And it came to pass that when I, Mormon, saw their lamentations and their mourning and their sorrowing before the Lord, My heart did begin to rejoice within me, knowing the mercies and the longsuffering of the Lord, Therefore supposing that He would be merciful unto them, that they would again become a righteous people.

Mormon 1:40 And it came to pass that my sorrow did return unto me again; And I saw that the day of grace was passed with them, both temporally and spiritually, For I saw thousands of them hewn down in open rebellion against their God and heaped up as dung upon the face of the land.

And because this people repented not after that I had delivered them, Behold, they shall be cut off from the face of the earth!"

Mormon 1:81 And it came to pass that I utterly refused to go up against mine enemies; And I did even as the Lord had commanded me; And I did stand as an idle witness to manifest unto the world the things which I saw and heard, according to the manifestations of the Spirit which had testified of things to come.

Mormon 4:71 Behold, He created Adam, And by Adam, came the fall of man, And because of the fall of man, came Jesus Christ, even the Father and the Son, And because of Jesus Christ, came the redemption of man,

Mormon 4:72 And because of the redemption of man, which came by Jesus Christ, they are brought back into the presence of the Lord.
