Passage: Alma 10:68 - Alma 10:88
68 If ye have such great power, why do ye not deliver yourselves?"
69 And many such things did they say unto them, gnashing their teeth upon them and spitting upon them and saying, "How shall we look when we are damned?"
70 And many such things, yea, all manner of such things did they say unto them; And thus they did mock them for many days.
71 And they did withhold food from them, that they might hunger, And water, that they might thirst;
72 And they also did take from them their clothes, that they were naked; And thus they were bound with strong cords and confined in prison.
73 And it came to pass after they had thus suffered for many days-and it was on the twelfth day, in the tenth month, in the tenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi- That the chief judge over the Land of Ammonihah, and many of their teachers and their lawyers, went in unto the prison where Alma and Amulek were bound with cords;
74 And the chief judge stood before them and smote them again and saith unto them: "If ye have the power of God, deliver yourselves from these bands; And then we will believe that the Lord will destroy this people, according to your words."
75 And it came to pass that they all went forth and smote them, saying the same words, even until the last;
76 And when the last had spoken unto them, the power of God was upon Alma and Amulek and they arose and stood upon their feet; And Alma cried, saying: "How long shall we suffer these great afflictions, O Lord?
77 O Lord! give us strength according to our faith which is in Christ, even unto deliverance." And they brake the cords with which they were bound; And when the people saw this, they began to flee, for the fear of destruction had come upon them.
78 And it came to pass that so great was their fear that they fell to the earth and did not obtain the outer door of the prison;
79 And the earth shook mightily and the walls of the prison were rent in twain so that they fell to the earth;
80 And the chief judge and the lawyers and priests and teachers which smote upon Alma and Amulek were slain by the fall thereof.
81 And Alma and Amulek came forth out of the prison and they were not hurt, for the Lord had granted unto them power according to their faith which was in Christ;
82 And they straightway came forth out of the prison and they were loosed from their bands.
83 And the prison had fallen to the earth, And every soul which was within the walls thereof, save it were Alma and Amulek, were slain; And they straightway came forth into the city.
84 Now the people, having heard a great noise, came running together by multitudes to know the cause of it;
85 And when they saw Alma and Amulek coming forth out of the prison and the walls thereof had fallen to the earth, They were struck with great fear and fled from the presence of Alma and Amulek, even as a goat fleeth with her young from two lions; And thus they did flee from the presence of Alma and Amulek.
86 And it came to pass that Alma and Amulek were commanded to depart out of that land; And they departed and came out even into the Land of Sidom;
87 And behold, there they found all the people which had departed out of the Land of Ammonihah, who had been cast out and stoned because they believed in the words of Alma;
88 And they related unto them all that had happened unto their wives and children, And also concerning themselves and of their power of deliverance.
