Passage: Mosiah 5:1 - Mosiah 5:21
1 And now it came to pass that after King Mosiah had had continual peace for the space of three years, he was desirous to know concerning the people which went up to dwell in the Land of Lehi-Nephi, or in the City of Lehi-Nephi;
2 For his people had heard nothing from them from the time they left the Land of Zarahemla, Therefore, they wearied him with their teasings.
3 And it came to pass that King Mosiah granted that sixteen of their strong men might go up to the Land of Lehi- Nephi to inquire concerning their brethren.
4 And it came to pass that on the morrow they started to go up, having with them one Ammon, he being a strong and mighty man and a descendant of Zarahemla; And he was also their leader.
5 And now they knew not the course they should travel in the wilderness to go up to the Land of Lehi-Nephi, Therefore, they wandered many days in the wilderness, even forty days did they wander.
6 And when they had wandered forty days, they came to a hill which is north of the Land of Shilom and there they pitched their tents;
7 And Ammon took three of his brethren-and their names were Amaleki, Helem, and Hem-and they went down into the Land of Nephi.
8 And behold, they met the king of the people which was in the Land of Nephi and in the Land of Shilom;
9 And they were surrounded by the king's guard and were taken and were bound and were committed to prison.
10 And it came to pass when they had been in prison two days, they were again brought before the king and their bands were loosed;
11 And they stood before the king and were permitted, or rather commanded, that they should answer the questions which he should ask them.
12 And he saith unto them: "Behold, I am Limhi, the son of Noah, which was the son of Zeniff-which came up out of the Land of Zarahemla to inherit this land, which was the land of their fathers-which was made a king by the voice of the people.
13 "And now, I desire to know the cause whereby ye were so bold as to come near the walls of the city when I, myself, was with my guards without the gate.
14 "And now for this cause have I suffered that ye should be preserved-that I might inquire of you- Or else I should have caused that my guards should have put you to death. "Ye are permitted to speak."
15 And now when Ammon saw that he was permitted to speak, he went forth and bowed himself before the king; And rising again, he said: "O king, I am very thankful before God this day that I am yet alive and am permitted to speak,
16 And I will endeavor to speak with boldness; For I am assured that if ye had known me, ye would not have suffered that I should have worn these bands,
17 For I am Ammon and am a descendant of Zarahemla, And have come up out of the Land of Zarahemla to inquire concerning our brethren which Zeniff brought up out of that land."
18 And now it came to pass that after Limhi had heard the words of Ammon, he was exceeding glad and said: "Now I know of a surety that my brethren which were in the Land of Zarahemla are yet alive;
19 And now I will rejoice! And on the morrow I will cause that my people shall rejoice also.
20 "For behold, we are in bondage to the Lamanites and are taxed with a tax which is grievous to be borne.
21 "And now behold, our brethren will deliver us out of our bondage, or out of the hands of the Lamanites, and we will be their slaves,
