Passage: Mosiah 13:47 - Mosiah 13:67
47 And many more things did King Mosiah write unto them, unfolding unto them all the trials and troubles of a righteous king,
48 Yea, all the travails of soul for their people, and also all the murmurings of the people to their king; And he explained it all unto them,
49 And he told them that these things had not ought to be, But that the burden should come upon all the people, that every man might bear his part.
50 And he also unfolded unto them all the disadvantages they labored under by having an unrighteous king to rule over them-
51 Yea, all his iniquities and abominations, And all the wars and contentions and bloodshed, And the stealing and the plundering, And the committing of whoredoms and all manner of iniquities which cannot be enumerated-
52 Telling them that these things ought not to be, that they were expressly repugnant to the commandments of God.
53 And now it came to pass after King Mosiah had sent these things forth among the people, they were convinced of the truth of his words;
54 Therefore, they relinquished their desires for a king and became exceedingly anxious that every man should have an equal chance throughout all the land,
55 Yea, and every man expressed a willingness to answer for his own sins.
56 Therefore, it came to pass that they assembled themselves together in bodies throughout the land to cast in their voices concerning who should be their judges, to judge them according to the law which had been given them.
57 And they were exceedingly rejoiced because of the liberty which had been granted unto them,
58 And they did wax strong in love toward Mosiah; Yea, they did esteem him more than any other man,
59 For they did not look upon him as a tyrant who was seeking for gain, yea, for that lucre which doth corrupt the soul,
60 For he had not exacted riches of them, neither had he delighted in the shedding of blood, But he had established peace in the land and he had granted unto his people that they should be delivered from all manner of bondage;
61 Therefore, they did esteem him, yea, exceedingly beyond measure.
62 And it came to pass that they did appoint judges to rule over them, or to judge them according to the law; And this they did throughout all the land.
63 And it came to pass that Alma was appointed to be the chief judge, he being also the high priest, his father having conferred the office upon him and had given him the charge concerning all the affairs of the church.
64 And now it came to pass that Alma did walk in the ways of the Lord, And he did keep His commandments and he did judge righteous judgments; And there was continual peace through the land;
65 And thus commenced the reign of the judges throughout all the Land of Zarahemla, among all the people which were called the Nephites; And Alma was the first and chief judge.
66 And now it came to pass that his father died, being eighty and two years old, having lived to fulfill the commandments of God.
67 And it came to pass that Mosiah died also, in the thirty and third year of his reign, being sixty and three years old, Making in the whole five hundred and nine years from the time Lehi left Jerusalem.
