58 And there was one day in every week that was set apart that they should gather themselves together to teach the people and to worship the Lord their God, And also as often as it was in their power to assemble themselves together; 59 And the priests were not to depend upon the people for their support, But for their labor they were to receive the grace of God, that they might wax strong in the Spirit, Having the knowledge of God, that they might teach with power and authority from God. 60 And again, Alma commanded that the people of the church should impart of their substance, everyone according to that which he hath- 61 If he have more abundantly, he should impart more abundantly, And he that hath but little, but little should be required, And to him that hath not, should be given; 62 And thus they should impart of their substance of their own free will and good desires toward God, And to those priests that stood in need, yea, and to every needy, naked soul; 63 And this he said unto them, having been commanded of God; 64 And they did walk uprightly before God, imparting to one another both temporally and spiritually, according to their needs and their wants. 65 And now it came to pass that all this was done in Mormon, yea, by the Waters of Mormon, in the forest that was near the Waters of Mormon, 66 Yea, the Place of Mormon, the Waters of Mormon, the Forest of Mormon- How beautiful are they to the eyes of them who there came to the knowledge of their Redeemer! 67 Yea, and how blessed are they, for they shall sing to His praise forever! 68 And these things were done in the borders of the land, that they might not come to the knowledge of the king. 69 But behold, it came to pass that the king, having discovered a movement among the people, sent his servants to watch them; 70 Therefore, on the day that they were assembling themselves together to hear the word of the Lord, they were discovered unto the king. 71 And now the king saith that Alma was stirring up the people to a rebellion against him, therefore he sent his army to destroy them. 72 And it came to pass that Alma and the people of the Lord were apprised of the coming of the king's army; Therefore, they took their tents and their families and departed into the wilderness; 73 And they were in number about four hundred and fifty souls. 74 And it came to pass that the army of the king returned, having searched in vain for the people of the Lord; 75 And now behold, the forces of the king were small, having been reduced. And there began to be a division among the remainder of the people, 76 And the lesser part began to breathe out threatenings against the king, And there began to be a great contention among them. 77 And now there was a man among them whose name was Gideon; And he being a strong man and an enemy to the king, therefore, he drew his sword and swore in his wrath that he would slay the king. 78 And now it came to pass that he fought with the king; And when the king saw that he was about to overpower him, he fled and ran and got upon the tower which was near the temple;

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
