Passage: Alma 8:59 - Alma 8:79
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.
62 Now an antion of gold is equal to three shiblons.
63 Now this is their number according to their reckoning.
64 Now it was for the sole purpose for to get gain, because they received their wages according to their employ,
65 Therefore, they did stir up the people to riotings and all manner of disturbances and wickedness, That they might have more employ
66 and that they might get money according to the suits which were brought before them; Therefore, they did stir up the people against Alma and Amulek.
67 And this Zeezrom began to question Amulek, saying: "Will ye answer me a few questions which I shall ask you?"
68 Now Zeezrom was a man which was expert in the devices of the devil, that he might destroy that which was good; Therefore, he saith unto Amulek: "Will ye answer the questions which I shall put unto you?"
69 And Amulek saith unto him: "Yea, I will, if it be according to the Spirit of the Lord which is in me, for I shall say nothing which is contrary to the Spirit of the Lord."
70 And Zeezrom saith unto him: "Behold, here are six onties of silver, And all these will I give unto thee if thou wilt deny the existence of a Supreme Being."
71 Now Amulek saith: "O thou child of hell! Why tempt ye me?
72 Knowest thou that the righteous yieldeth to no such temptations?
73 "Believest thou that there is no God?
74 I say unto you, nay, thou knowest that there is a God, but thou lovest that lucre more than Him.
75 "And now thou hast lied before God unto me,
76 For thou saidst unto me, 'Behold these six onties which are of great worth, I will give unto thee,' when thou had it in thy heart to retain them from me;
77 And it was only thy desire that I should deny the true and living God, that thou mightest have cause to destroy me.
78 "And now behold, for this great evil, thou shalt have thy reward."
79 And Zeezrom saith unto him: "Thou sayest there is a true and a living God?"
