Passage: Alma 9:5 - Alma 9:25
5 And thou seest that we know that thy plan was a very subtle plan, as to the subtlety of the devil, for to lie and to deceive this people, That thou mightest set them against us, to revile us and to cast us out.
6 "Now this was a plan of thine adversary and he hath exercised his power in thee.
7 "Now I would that ye should remember that what I say unto thee, I say unto all.
8 "And behold, I say unto you all that this was a snare of the adversary which he hath laid to catch this people,
9 That he might bring you into subjection unto him, That he might encircle you about with his chains, That he might chain you down to everlasting destruction, according to the power of his captivity."
10 Now when Alma had spoken these words, Zeezrom began to tremble more exceedingly, for he was convinced more and more of the power of God;
11 And he was also convinced that Alma and Amulek had a knowledge of him, for he was convinced that they knew the thoughts and intents of his heart,
12 For power was given unto them that they might know of these things according to the spirit of prophecy.
13 And Zeezrom began to inquire of them diligently, that he might know more concerning the kingdom of God.
14 And he saith unto Alma: "What does this mean which Amulek hath spoken concerning the resurrection of the dead, That all shall rise from the dead, both the just and the unjust, and are brought to stand before God to be judged according to their works?"
15 And now Alma began to expound these things unto him, saying: "It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God,
16 Nevertheless, they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of His word which He doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto Him.
17 "And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word,
18 And he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God, until they know them in full;
19 And he that will harden his heart, to him is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning His mysteries;
20 And then they are taken captive by the devil and led by his will down to destructions;
21 Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell. "And Amulek hath spoken plainly concerning death, And being raised from this mortality to a state of immortality, And being brought before the bar of God to be judged according to our works.
22 "Then if our hearts have been hardened, yea, if we have hardened our hearts against the word insomuch that it hath not been found in us, Then will our state be awful, for then we shall be condemned;
23 For our work will condemn us, yea, all our work will condemn us- We shall not be found spotless;
24 And our thoughts will also condemn us; And in this awful state, we shall not durst look up to our God;
25 And we would fain be glad if we could command the rocks and the mountains to fall upon us to hide us from His presence.
