Passage: Alma 1:66 - Alma 1:86

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;
82 And except we make haste, they obtain possession of our city, and our fathers and our wives and our children be slain."
83 And it came to pass that the people of Nephi took their tents and departed out of the Valley of Gideon toward their city which was the City of Zarahemla.
84 And behold, as they were crossing the River Sidon, the Lamanites and the Amlicites being as numerous almost as it were as the sands of the sea, coming upon them to destroy them-
85 Nevertheless, the Nephites being strengthened by the hand of the Lord, having prayed mightily to Him that He would deliver them out of the hands of their enemies,
86 Therefore, the Lord did hear their cries and did strengthen them; And the Lamanites and the Amlicites did fall before them.
