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;

3 And it came to pass that in the first year of the reign of Alma in the judgment seat, there was a man brought before him to be judged, A man which was large and was noted for his much strength.
