Passage: Alma 8:4 - Alma 8:24

4 "And behold, I am also a man of no small reputation among all those who know me.
5 "Yea, and behold, I have many kindred and friends and I have also acquired much riches by the hand of my industry;
6 Nevertheless, after all this, I never have known much of the ways of the Lord and His mysteries and marvelous power.
7 "I said I never had known much of these things, but behold I mistake, for I have seen much of His mysteries and His miraculous power, Yea, even in the preservation of the lives of this people.
8 "Nevertheless, I did harden my heart, for I was called many times and I would not hear; Therefore, I knew concerning these things, yet I would not know.
9 "Therefore, I went on rebelling against God in the wickedness of my heart, even until the fourth day of this seventh month, which is in the tenth year of the reign of our judges.
10 "As I was a journeying to see a very near kindred, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto me and said: 'Amulek, return to thine own house, for thou shalt feed a prophet of the Lord, yea, a holy man which art a chosen man of God;
11 For he hath fasted many days because of the sins of this people and he is enhungered; And thou shall receive him into thy house and feed him, And he shall bless thee and thy house; And the blessing of the Lord shall rest upon thee and thy house.'
12 "And it came to pass that I obeyed the voice of the angel and returned toward my house;
13 And as I was a going thither, I found the man which the angel said unto me, 'Thou shalt receive into thy house'; And behold, it was this same man which hath been speaking unto you concerning the things of God.
14 "And the angel said unto me: 'He is a holy man'; Wherefore, I know he is a holy man because it was said by an angel of God.
15 "And again, I know that the things whereof he hath testified are true; For behold I say unto you, that as the Lord liveth, even so He hath sent His angel to make these things manifest unto me; And this He hath done while this Alma hath dwelt at my house.
16 "For behold, he hath blessed mine house; He hath blessed me and my women and my children and my father and my kinsfolk,
17 Yea, even all my kindred hath he blessed; And the blessing of the Lord hath rested upon us according to the words which he spake."
18 And now when Amulek had spoken these words, the people began to be astonished, Seeing there was more than one witness which testified of the things whereof they were accused, and also of the things which were to come, according to the spirit of prophecy which was in them.
19 Nevertheless, there were some among them which thought to question them, That by their cunning devices they might catch them in their words, That they might find witness against them, That they might deliver them to the judges,
20 That they might be judged according to the law, And that they might be slain or cast into prison according to the crime which they could make appear, or witness against them.
21 Now, it was those men which sought to destroy them which were lawyers which were hired, or appointed by the people to administer the law at their times of trials, or at the trials of the crimes of the people before the judges.
22 Now these lawyers were learned in all the arts and cunning of the people; And this was to enable them that they might be skillful in their profession.
23 And it came to pass that they began to question Amulek that thereby they might make him cross his words, or contradict the words which he should speak.
24 Now, they knew not that Amulek could know of their design;
