Passage: Mosiah 6:39 - Mosiah 7:1
39 And it came to pass that I caused that the women and children of my people should be hid in the wilderness;
40 And I also caused that all my old men that could bear arms, and also all my young men that were able to bear arms, should gather themselves together to go to battle against the Lamanites, And I did place them in their ranks, every man according to his age.
41 And it came to pass that we did go up to battle against the Lamanites;
42 And I, even I in my old age, did go up to battle against the Lamanites.
43 And it came to pass that we did go up in the strength of the Lord to battle;
44 Now the Lamanites knew nothing concerning the Lord, nor the strength of the Lord, Therefore, they depended upon their own strength,
45 Yet they were a strong people as to the strength of men. They were a wild and ferocious and a bloodthirsty people, believing in the tradition of their fathers, which is this:
46 Believing that they were driven out of the Land of Jerusalem because of the iniquities of their fathers, And that they were wronged in the wilderness by their brethren; And they were also wronged while crossing the sea;
47 And again, that they were wronged while in the land of their first inheritance, after they had crossed the sea.
48 And all this because that Nephi was more faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord, Therefore, he was favored of the Lord, for the Lord heard his prayers and answered them, And he took the lead of their journey in the wilderness.
49 And his brethren were wroth with him because they understood not the dealings of the Lord;
50 They were also wroth with him upon the waters because they hardened their hearts against the Lord.
51 And again, they were wroth with him when they had arrived to the Promised Land because they said that he had taken the ruling of the people out of their hands; And they sought to kill him.
52 And again, they were wroth with him because he departed into the wilderness as the Lord had commanded him and took the records which were engraven on the plates of brass, For they said that he robbed them.
53 And thus they have taught their children that they should hate them and that they should murder them and that they should rob and plunder them and do all they could to destroy them; Therefore, they have an eternal hatred toward the children of Nephi.
54 For this very cause hath King Laman-by his cunning and lying craftiness and his fair promises-hath deceived me, that I have brought this my people up into this land that they may destroy them; Yea, and we have suffered this many years in the land.
55 And now I, Zeniff, after having told all these things unto my people concerning the Lamanites, I did stimulate them to go to battle with their mights, putting their trust in the Lord; Therefore, we did contend with them face to face.
56 And it came to pass that we did drive them again out of our land; And we slew them with a great slaughter, even so many that we did not number them.
57 And it came to pass that we returned again to our own land, And my people again began to tend their flocks and to till their ground.
58 And now I, being old, did confer the kingdom upon one of my sons; Therefore, I say no more; And may the Lord bless my people. Amen.
1 And now it came to pass that Zeniff conferred the kingdom upon Noah, one of his sons, Therefore, Noah began to reign in his stead; And he did not walk in the ways of his father;
