Passage: Mosiah 5:11 - Mosiah 5:31
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,
22 For it is better that we be slaves to the Nephites than to pay tribute to the king of the Lamanites."
23 And now King Limhi commanded his guards that they should no more bind Ammon nor his brethren, But caused that they should go to the hill which was north of Shilom and bring their brethren into the city, That thereby they might eat and drink and rest themselves from the labors of their journey,
24 For they had suffered many things-they had suffered hunger, thirst and fatigue.
25 And now it came to pass on the morrow that King Limhi sent a proclamation among all his people, That thereby they might gather themselves together to the temple to hear the words which he should speak unto them.
26 And it came to pass that when they had gathered themselves together, that he spake unto them in this wise, saying:
27 "O ye my people, lift up your heads and be comforted; For behold, the time is at hand, or is not far distant, when we shall no longer be in subjection to our enemies, notwithstanding our many strugglings which have been in vain; Yet I trust there remaineth an effectual struggle to be made.
28 "Therefore, lift up your heads and rejoice! And put your trust in God, in that God who was the God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob,
29 And also that God who brought the children of Israel out of the Land of Egypt and caused that they should walk through the Red Sea on dry ground, And fed them with manna, that they might not perish in the wilderness; And many more things did He do for them.
30 "And again, that same God hath brought our fathers out of the Land of Jerusalem and hath kept and preserved His people, even until now.
31 "And behold, it is because of our iniquities and abominations that has brought us into bondage;
