Passage: Alma 1:61 - Alma 1:81
61 Now this did cause much joy in the hearts of those which were against him; But Amlici did stir up those which were in his favor to anger against those which were not in his favor.
62 And it came to pass that they gathered themselves together and did consecrate Amlici to be their king.
63 Now when Amlici was made king over them, he commanded them that they should take up arms against their brethren; And this he did that he might subject them to him.
64 Now the people of Amlici were distinguished by the name of Amlici, being called Amlicites, And the remainder were called Nephites, or the people of God.
65 Therefore, the people of the Nephites were aware of the intent of the Amlicites and therefore they did prepare for to meet them;
66 Yea, they did arm themselves with swords, and with scimitars, and with bows and with arrows, and with stones and with slings, and with all manner of weapons of war of every kind;
67 And thus they were prepared to meet the Amlicites at the time of their coming;
68 And there were appointed captains and higher captains and chief captains, according to their numbers.
69 And it came to pass that Amlici did arm his men with all manner of weapons of war of every kind; And he also appointed rulers and leaders over his people to lead them to war against their brethren.
70 And it came to pass that the Amlicites came up upon the Hill Amnihu which was east of the River Sidon which ran by the Land of Zarahemla; And there they began to make war with the Nephites.
71 Now Alma, he being the chief judge and the governor of the people of Nephi, Therefore, he went up with his people-yea, with his captains and chief captains-yea, at the head of his armies against the Amlicites to battle; And they began to slay the Amlicites upon the hill east of Sidon.
72 And the Amlicites did contend with the Nephites with great strength, insomuch that many of the Nephites did fall before the Amlicites;
73 Nevertheless, the Lord did strengthen the hand of the Nephites that they slew the Amlicites with a great slaughter, that they began to flee before them.
74 And it came to pass that the Nephites did pursue the Amlicites all that day and did slay them with much slaughter, Insomuch that there was slain of the Amlicites twelve thousand five hundred thirty and two souls;
75 And there was slain of the Nephites six thousand five hundred sixty and two souls.
76 And it came to pass that when Alma could pursue the Amlicites no longer, he caused that his people should pitch their tents in the Valley of Gideon, the valley being called after that Gideon which was slain by the hand of Nehor with the sword; And in this valley the Nephites did pitch their tents for the night.
77 And Alma sent spies to follow the remnant of the Amlicites, that he might know of their plans and their plots, Whereby he might guard himself against them, that he might preserve his people from being destroyed.
78 Now those which he had sent out to watch the camp of the Amlicites were called Zeram and Amnor and Manti and Limher; These were they which went out with their men to watch the camp of the Amlicites.
79 And it came to pass that on the morrow they returned into the camp of the Nephites in great haste, being greatly astonished and struck with much fear, saying:
80 "Behold, we followed the camp of the Amlicites, And to our great astonishment-in the Land of Minon above the Land of Zarahemla, in the course of the Land of Nephi-we saw a numerous host of the Lamanites.
81 "And behold, the Amlicites have joined them and they are upon our brethren in that land; And they are fleeing before them with their flocks and their wives and their children toward our city;
