Passage: Mosiah 11:50 - Mosiah 11:70
50 And they were a people friendly one with another; Nevertheless they knew not God, Neither did the brethren of Amulon teach them anything concerning the Lord their God, neither the law of Moses,
51 Nor did they teach them the words of Abinadi, But they taught them that they should keep their record and that they might write one to another.
52 And thus the Lamanites began to increase in riches and began to trade one with another and wax great, And began to be a cunning and a wise people as to the wisdom of the world,
53 Yea, a very cunning people, delighting in all manner of wickedness and plunder, except it were among their own brethren.
54 And now it came to pass that Amulon began to exercise authority over Alma and his brethren and began to persecute him and cause that his children should persecute their children;
55 For Amulon knew Alma, that he had been one of the king's priests, And that it was he that believed the words of Abinadi and was driven out before the king; And therefore, he was wroth with him, for he was subject to King Laman,
56 Yet he exercised authority over them and put tasks upon them and put taskmasters over them.
57 And it came to pass that so great were their afflictions that they began to cry mightily to God.
58 And it came to pass that Amulon commanded them that they should stop their cries; And he put guards over them to watch them, that whosoever should be found calling upon God should be put to death.
59 And it came to pass that Alma and his people did not raise their voices to the Lord their God, but did pour out their hearts to Him; And He did know the thoughts of their hearts.
60 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: "Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto Me; And I will covenant with this My people and deliver them out of bondage;
61 And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs even while you are in bondage;
62 And this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for Me hereafter, And that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit My people in their afflictions."
63 And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light,
64 Yea, the Lord did strengthen them, that they could bear up their burdens with ease; And they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.
65 And it came to pass that so great was their faith and their patience that the voice of the Lord came unto them again, saying: "Be of good comfort, for on the morrow I will deliver thee out of bondage."
66 And He saith unto Alma: "Thou shalt go before this people, And I will go with thee and deliver this people out of bondage."
67 Now it came to pass that Alma and his people, in the nighttime, gathered their flocks together, and also of their grain, Yea, even all the nighttime were they gathering their flocks together;
68 And in the morning the Lord caused a deep sleep to come upon the Lamanites, Yea, and all their taskmasters were in a profound sleep.
69 And it came to pass that Alma and his people departed into the wilderness; And when they had traveled all day, they pitched their tents in a valley; And they called the name of the valley Alma because he led their way in the wilderness.
70 Yea, and in the Valley of Alma they poured out their thanks to God because He had been merciful unto them and eased their burdens and had delivered them out of bondage,
