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; 79 And Gideon pursued after him and was about to get upon the tower to slay the king, And the king cast his eyes round about toward the Land of Shemlon, And behold, the army of the Lamanites were within the borders of the land. 80 And now the king cried out in the anguish of his soul, saying: "Gideon, spare me! for the Lamanites are upon us and they will destroy them, Yea, they will destroy my people!" 81 And now the king was not so much concerned about his people as he was about his own life; Nevertheless, Gideon did spare his life. 82 And the king commanded the people that they should flee before the Lamanites, And he himself did go before them, And they did flee into the wilderness with their women and their children. 83 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did pursue them and did overtake them and began to slay them. 84 Now it came to pass that the king commanded them that all the men should leave their wives and their children and flee before the Lamanites; 85 Now there were many that would not leave them, but had rather stay and perish with them, 86 And the rest left their wives and their children and fled. 87 And it came to pass that those that tarried with their wives and their children caused that their fair daughters should stand forth and plead with the Lamanites that they would not slay them. 88 And it came to pass that the Lamanites had compassion on them, for they were charmed with the beauty of their women; 89 Therefore, the Lamanites did spare their lives and took them captives and carried them back to the Land of Nephi, And granted unto them that they might possess the land, under the conditions that they would deliver up the king, Noah, into the hands of the Lamanites, And deliver up their property, 90 even one half of all they possessed- One half of their gold and their silver and all their precious things; And thus they should pay tribute to the king of the Lamanites from year to year.
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"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.
