Passage: Mosiah 9:174 - Mosiah 10:13
174 Now they would have gladly joined with them, For they themselves had entered into a covenant with God to serve Him and keep His commandments;
175 And now since the coming of Ammon, King Limhi had also entered into a covenant with God, and also many of his people, to serve Him and keep His commandments.
176 And it came to pass that King Limhi and many of his people were desirous to be baptized, but there was none in the land that had authority from God;
177 And Ammon declined doing this thing, considering himself an unworthy servant; Therefore, they did not at that time form themselves into a church, waiting upon the Spirit of the Lord.
178 Now they were desirous to become even as Alma and his brethren which had fled into the wilderness-
179 They were desirous to be baptized as a witness and a testimony that they were willing to serve God with all their hearts-
180 Nevertheless, they did prolong the time, And an account of their baptism shall be given hereafter.
181 And now all the study of Ammon and his people, and King Limhi and his people, was to deliver themselves out of the hands of the Lamanites and from bondage.
1 And now it came to pass that Ammon and King Limhi began to consult with the people, how they should deliver themselves out of bondage;
2 And even they did cause that all the people should gather themselves together, And this they did that they might have the voice of the people concerning the matter.
3 And it came to pass that they could find no way to deliver themselves out of bondage, Except it were to take their women and children and their flocks and their herds and their tents and depart into the wilderness,
4 For the Lamanites being so numerous, that it was impossible for the people of Limhi to contend with them, thinking to deliver themselves out of bondage by the sword.
5 Now it came to pass that Gideon went forth and stood before the king and said unto him: "Now O king, thou hast hitherto hearkened unto my words many times when we have been contending with our brethren the Lamanites.
6 "And now O king, if thou hast not found me to be an unprofitable servant, or if thou hast hitherto listened to my words in any degree and they have been of service to thee, Even so, I desire that thou wouldst listen to my words at this time, And I will be thy servant and deliver this people out of bondage."
7 And the king granted unto him that he may speak;
8 And Gideon saith unto him: "Behold the back pass through the back wall on the back side of the city;
9 The Lamanites, or the guards of the Lamanites, by night are drunken; Therefore, let us send a proclamation among all this people that they gather together their flocks and herds, that they may drive them into the wilderness by night;
10 And I will go, according to thy command, and pay the last tribute of wine to the Lamanites and they will be drunken, And we will pass through the secret pass on the left of their camp when they are drunken and asleep;
11 And we will depart with our women and our children, our flocks and our herds into the wilderness, And we will travel around the Land of Shilom."
12 And it came to pass that the king hearkened unto the words of Gideon.
13 And it came to pass that King Limhi caused that his people should gather their flocks together; And he sent the tribute of wine to the Lamanites, and he also sent more wine as a present unto them, And they did drink freely of the wine which King Limhi did send unto them.
