Passage: Mosiah 9:142 - Mosiah 9:162
142 Now they durst not slay them because of the oath which their king had made unto Limhi; But they would smite them on their cheeks and exercise authority over them, And began to put heavy burdens upon their backs and drive them as they would a dumb ass; Yea, all this was done that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled.
143 And now the afflictions of the Nephites were great; And there was no way that they could deliver themselves out of their hands, for the Lamanites had surrounded them on every side.
144 And it came to pass that the people began to murmur with the king, because of their afflictions, And they began to be desirous to go against them to battle,
145 And they did afflict the king sorely with their complaints, Therefore, he granted unto them that they should do according to their desires;
146 And they gathered themselves together again and put on their armor and went forth against the Lamanites, to drive them out of their land.
147 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did beat them and drive them back and slay many of them.
148 And now, there was a great mourning and lamentation among the people of Limhi: The widow a mourning for her husband, The son and the daughter a mourning for their father, And the brothers, for their brethren.
149 Now there were a great many widows in the land and they did cry mightily from day to day, for a great fear of the Lamanites had come upon them.
150 And it came to pass that their continual cries did stir up the remainder of the people of Limhi to anger against the Lamanites,
151 And they went again to battle, but they were driven back again, suffering much loss;
152 Yea, they went again, even the third time, and suffered in the like manner; And those that were not slain returned again to the City of Nephi.
153 And they did humble themselves even to the dust, subjecting themselves to the yoke of bondage, Submitting themselves to be smitten and to be driven to and fro and burdened, according to the desires of their enemies;
154 And they did humble themselves, even in the depths of humility; And they did cry mightily to God, Yea, even all the day long did they cry unto their God, that He would deliver them out of their afflictions.
155 And now the Lord was slow to hear their cry because of their iniquities;
156 Nevertheless, the Lord did hear their cries and began to soften the hearts of the Lamanites, that they began to ease their burdens; Yet the Lord did not see fit to deliver them out of bondage.
157 And it came to pass that they began to prosper by degrees in the land, And began to raise grain more abundantly and flocks and herds, that they did not suffer with hunger.
158 Now there was a great number of women, more than there was of men; Therefore, King Limhi commanded that every man should impart to the support of the widows and their children, that they might not perish with hunger; And this they did because of the greatness of their number that had been slain.
159 Now the people of Limhi kept together in a body as much as it was possible and secure their grain and their flocks;
160 And the king himself did not trust his person without the walls of the city unless he took his guards with him, fearing that he might by some means fall into the hands of the Lamanites.
161 And he caused that his people should watch the land round about, That by some means they might take those priests that fled into the wilderness which had stolen the daughters of the Lamanites and that had caused such a great destruction to come upon them;
162 For they were desirous to take them, that they might punish them, For they had come into the Land of Nephi by night and carried off their grain and many of their precious things; Therefore, they laid wait for them.
