Passage: Alma 8:41 - Alma 8:61

41 And now it came to pass that when Amulek had spoken these words, the people cried out against him, saying: "Now we know that this man is a child of the devil, for he hath lied unto us, for he hath spoken against our law,
42 And now he saith that he hath not spoken against it."
43 And again: "He hath reviled against our lawyers and our judges," etc.
44 And it came to pass that the lawyers put it into their hearts that they should remember these things against him.
45 And it came to pass that there was one among them whose name was Zeezrom,
46 Now he being the foremost to accuse Amulek and Alma, he being one of the most expert among them, having much business to do among the people.
47 Now the object of these lawyers was to get gain; And they got gain according to their employ.
48 Now it was in the law of Mosiah that every man which was a judge of the law, or which were appointed to be judges, should receive wages according to the time which they labored to judge those which were brought before them to be judged.
49 Now if a man oweth another and he would not pay that which he did owe, he was complained of to the judge;
50 And the judge executed authority and sent forth officers that the man should be brought before him;
51 And he judgeth the man according to the law and the evidences which are brought against him; And thus the man is compelled to pay that which he oweth, or be striped, or be cast out from among the people as a thief and a robber.
52 And the judge receiveth for his wages according to his time-a senine of gold for a day, or a senum of silver which is equal to a senine of gold; And this is according to the law which was given.
53 Now these are the names of the different pieces of their gold and of their silver, according to their value;
54 And the names are given by the Nephites, for they did not reckon after the manner of the Jews which were at Jerusalem; Neither did they measure after the manner of the Jews,
55 But they altered their reckoning and their measure accord- ing to the minds and the circumstances of the people in every generation until the reign of the judges, they having been established by King Mosiah.
56 Now, the reckoning is thus: A senine of gold, a seon of gold, a shum of gold and a limnah of gold;
57 A senum of silver, an amnor of silver, an ezrum of silver and an onti of silver;
58 A senum of silver was equal to a senine of gold, And either for a measure of barley and also for a measure of every kind of grain.
59 Now, the amount of a seon of gold was twice the value of a senine; And a shum of gold was twice the value of a seon; And a limnah of gold was the value of them all;
60 And an amnor of silver was as great as two senums; And an ezrum of silver was as great as four senums; And an onti was as great as them all.
61 Now this is the value of the lesser numbers of their reckoning: A shiblon is half of a senum, therefore a shiblon for half a measure of barley; And a shilum is a half of a shiblon and a leah is the half of a shilum.
