Passage: Alma 1:75 - Alma 1:95

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.
87 And it came to pass that Alma fought with Amlici with the sword, face to face; And they did contend mightily one with another.
88 And it came to pass that Alma, he being a man of God, being exercised with much faith, And he cried, saying: "O Lord, have mercy and spare my life, that I may be an instrument in Thy hands to save and protect this people!"
89 Now when Alma had said these words, he contended again with Amlici, And he was strengthened insomuch that he slew Amlici with the sword;
90 And he also contended with the king of the Lamanites, But the king of the Lamanites fled back from before Alma and sent his guards to contend with Alma;
91 But Alma, with his guards, contended with the guards of the king of the Lamanites until he slew and drove them back.
92 And thus he cleared the ground, or rather the bank, which was on the west of the River Sidon, throwing the bodies of the Lamanites which had been slain into the waters of Sidon, That thereby his people might have room to cross and contend with the Lamanites and the Amlicites on the west side of the River Sidon.
93 And it came to pass that when they had all crossed the River Sidon, that the Lamanites and the Amlicites began to flee before them, notwithstanding they were so numerous that they could not be numbered;
94 And they fled before the Nephites toward the wilderness which was west and north, away beyond the borders of the land;
95 And the Nephites did pursue them with their might and did slay them, Yea, they were met on every hand and slain and driven until they were scattered on the west and on the north, until they had reached the wilderness which was called Hermounts;
