Passage: Alma 1:97 - Alma 1:117

97 And it came to pass that many died in the wilderness of their wounds and were devoured by those beasts, and also the vultures of the air; And their bones have been found and have been heaped upon the earth.
98 And it came to pass that the Nephites which were not slain by the weapons of war, after having buried those which had been slain-now the number of the slain were not numbered because of the greatness of their number- And after they had finished burying their dead, they all returned to their lands and to their houses and their wives and their children.
99 Now many women and children had been slain with the sword, and also many of their flocks and their herds;
100 And also many of their fields of grain were destroyed, for they were trodden down by the hosts of men.
101 And now as many of the Lamanites and the Amlicites which had been slain upon the bank of the River Sidon were cast into the waters of Sidon; And behold, their bones are in the depths of the sea, and they are many.
102 And the Amlicites were distinguished from the Nephites, for they had marked themselves with red in their foreheads after the manner of the Lamanites; Nevertheless, they had not shorn their heads like unto the Lamanites.
103 Now the heads of the Lamanites were shorn, And they were naked, save it were skin which was girded about their loins, And also their armor which was girded about them, and their bows and their arrows, and their stones and their slings, etc.
104 And the skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the mark which was set upon their fathers, Which was a curse upon them because of their transgression and their rebellion against their brethren which consisted of Nephi, Jacob and Joseph and Sam, which were just and holy men.
105 And their brethren sought to destroy them; Therefore, they were cursed, And the Lord God set a mark upon them, yea, upon Laman and Lemuel, and also the sons of Ishmael and the Ishmaelitish women;
106 And this was done that their seed might be distinguished from the seed of their brethren, that thereby the Lord God might preserve His people, that they might not mix and believe in incorrect traditions which would prove their destruction.
107 And it came to pass that whosoever did mingle his seed with that of the Lamanites did bring the same curse upon his seed;
108 Therefore, whomsoever suffered himself to be led away by the Lamanites were called under that head and there was a mark set upon him.
109 And it came to pass that whosoever would not believe in the tradition of the Lamanites, But believed those records which were brought out of the Land of Jerusalem, and also in the tradition of their fathers, which were correct, Which believed in the commandments of God and kept them, Were called the Nephites, or the people of Nephi, from that time forth;
110 And it is they which have kept the records, which are true, of their people, and also of the people of the Lamanites.
111 Now we will return again to the Amlicites, for they also had a mark set upon them; Yea, they set the mark upon themselves, yea, even a mark of red upon their foreheads.
112 Thus, the word of God is fulfilled, for these are the words which He saith to Nephi:
113 "Behold, the Lamanites have I cursed; And I will set a mark upon them, that they and their seed may be separated from thee and thy seed from this time, henceforth and forever, except they repent of their wickedness and turn to me, that I may have mercy upon them.
114 "And again, I will set a mark upon him that mingleth his seed with thy brethren, that they may be cursed also.
115 "And again, will I set a mark upon him that fighteth against thee and thy seed.
116 "And again I say, he that departeth from thee shall no more be called thy seed; And I will bless thee, etc., and whomsoever shall be called thy seed, henceforth and forever." And these were the promises of the Lord unto Nephi and to his seed.
117 Now the Amlicites knew not that they were fulfilling the words of God when they began to mark themselves in their foreheads;
