Passage: Mosiah 9:113 - Mosiah 9:133
113 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites found that their daughters had been missing, they were angry with the people of Limhi, for they thought it was the people of Limhi;
114 Therefore, they sent their armies forth, yea, even the king himself went before his people, And they went up to the Land of Nephi to destroy the people of Limhi.
115 And now Limhi had discovered them from the tower- even all their preparations for war did he discover; Therefore, he gathered his people together and laid wait for them in the fields and in the forests.
116 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites had come up, that the people of Limhi began to fall upon them from their waiting places and began to slay them.
117 And it came to pass that the battle became exceeding sore, for they fought like lions for their prey.
118 And it came to pass that the people of Limhi began to drive the Lamanites before them, yet they were not half so numerous as the Lamanites;
119 But they fought for their lives and for their wives and for their children, Therefore, they exerted themselves and like dragons did they fight.
120 And it came to pass that they found the king of the Lamanites among the number of their dead, Yet he was not dead, having been wounded and left upon the ground, so speedy was the flight of his people;
121 And they took him and bound up his wounds and brought him before Limhi and said: "Behold, here is the king of the Lamanites; He having received a wound hath fallen among their dead and they have left him, And behold, we have brought him before you; And now, let us slay him!"
122 But Limhi saith unto them: "Ye shall not slay him, but bring him hither that I may see him"; And they brought him.
123 And Limhi saith unto him: "What cause have ye to come up to war against my people?
124 Behold, my people have not broken the oath that I made unto you; Therefore, why should ye break the oath which ye made unto my people?"
125 And now the king said: "I have broken the oath because thy people did carry away the daughters of my people; Therefore, in my anger I did cause my people to come up to war against thy people."
126 Now Limhi had heard nothing concerning this matter, therefore he saith: "I will search among my people and whosoever hath done this thing shall perish";
127 Therefore, he caused a search to be made among his people.
128 Now when Gideon had heard these things, he being the king's captain, he went forth and said unto the king: "I pray thee, forbear and do not search this people and lay not this thing to their charge,
129 For do ye not remember the priests of thy father which this people sought to destroy?
130 And are they not in the wilderness? And is it not they which have stolen the daughters of the Lamanites?
131 "And now behold, and tell the king of these things that he may tell his people, that they may be pacified toward us, For behold, they are already preparing to come against us; And behold also, there are but few of us,
132 And behold, they come with their numerous hosts, And except the king doth pacify them toward us, we must perish;
133 For are not the words of Abinadi fulfilled which he prophesied against us? And all this because we would not hearken unto the word of the Lord and turn from our iniquities?
