Passage: Alma 6:8 - Alma 6:28
8 Now it was the custom of the people of Nephi to call their lands and their cities and their villages, yea, even all their small villages, after the name of him who first possessed them; And thus it was with the Land of Ammonihah.
9 And it came to pass that when Alma had come to the City of Ammonihah, he began to preach the word of God unto them.
10 Now Satan had got great hold upon the hearts of the people of the City of Ammonihah; Therefore, they would not hearken unto the words of Alma.
11 Nevertheless, Alma labored much in the spirit, wrestling with God in mighty prayer that He would pour out His Spirit upon the people which were in the city, That He would also grant that he might baptize them unto repentance.
12 Nevertheless, they hardened their hearts, saying unto him: "Behold, we know that thou art Alma; And we know that thou art high priest over the church which thou hast established in many parts of the land, according to your tradition;
13 And we are not of thy church, And we do not believe in such foolish traditions.
14 "And now, we know that because we are not of thy church, we know that thou hast no power over us;
15 And thou hast delivered up the judgment seat unto Nephihah, Therefore, thou art not the chief judge over us."
16 Now when the people had said this and had withstood all his words and reviled him and spit upon him and caused that he should be cast out of their city, And he departed thence and took his journey toward the city which was called Aaron.
17 And it came to pass that while he was journeying thither- being weighed down with sorrow, wading through much tribulation and anguish of soul because of the wickedness of the people which were in the City of Ammonihah-
18 And it came to pass that while Alma was thus weighed down with sorrow, Behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him, saying: "Blessed art thou, Alma; Therefore, lift up thy head and rejoice, for thou hast great cause to rejoice,
19 For thou hast been faithful in keeping the commandments of God from the time which thou received thy first message from Him.
20 "Behold, I am he that delivered it unto thee. "And behold, I am sent to command thee that thou return to the City of Ammonihah and preach again unto the people of the city, Yea, preach unto them,
21 yea, say unto them, except they repent, the Lord God will destroy them.
22 "For behold, they do study at this time that they may destroy the liberty of thy people-for thus saith the Lord-which is contrary to the statutes and judgments and commandments which He hath given unto His people."
23 Now it came to pass that after Alma had received his message from the angel of the Lord, he returned speedily to the Land of Ammonihah.
24 And it came to pass that he entered the city by another way, yea, by the way which was on the south of the City Ammonihah.
25 And it came to pass that as he entered the city, he was enhungered and he saith to a man: "Will ye give to an humble servant of God something to eat?"
26 And the man saith unto him: "I am a Nephite and I know that thou art a holy prophet of God, for thou art the man which an angel saith in a vision, 'Thou shalt receive';
27 Therefore, go with me into my house and I will impart unto thee of my favor; And I know that thou will be a blessing unto me and my house."
28 And it came to pass that the man received him into his house, And the man was called Amulek; And he brought forth bread and meat and sat before Alma.
