Passage: Alma 12:40 - Alma 12:60

40 Now the servants of the king began to murmur, saying: "Now the king will slay us as he has our brethren because their flocks were scattered by the wickedness of these men."
41 And they began to weep exceedingly, saying: "Behold, our flocks are scattered already."
42 Now they wept because of the fear of being slain;
43 Now when Ammon saw this, his heart was swollen within him with joy, for, said he: "I will show forth my power unto these my fellow servants, or the power which is in me, in restoring these flocks unto the king, That I may win the hearts of these my fellow servants, That I may lead them to believe in my words."
44 Now these were the thoughts of Ammon when he saw the affliction of those which he termed to be his brethren.
45 And it came to pass that he flattered them by his words, saying: "My brethren, be of good cheer and let us go in search of the flocks, And we will gather them together and bring them back unto the place of water,
46 And thus we will preserve the flocks unto the king and he will not slay us."
47 And it came to pass that they went in search of the flocks and they did follow Ammon, And they rushed forth with much swiftness and did head the flocks of the king and did gather them together again to the place of water.
48 And those men again stood to scatter their flocks; But Ammon saith unto his brethren: "Encircle the flocks round about, that they flee not; And I go and contend with these men which do scatter our flocks."
49 Therefore, they did as Ammon commanded them; And he went forth and stood to contend with those which stood by the Waters of Sebus;
50 And they were not in number a very few, therefore, they did not fear Ammon, For they supposed that one of their men could slay him according to their pleasure, For they knew not that the Lord had promised Mosiah that he would deliver his sons out of their hands, Neither did they know anything concerning the Lord;
51 Therefore, they delighted in the destruction of their brethren, And for this cause they stood to scatter the flocks of the king.
52 But Ammon stood forth and began to cast stones at them with his sling, yea, with mighty power he did sling stones amongst them;
53 And thus he slew a certain number of them insomuch that they began to be astonished at his power;
54 Nevertheless, they were angry because of the slain of their brethren and they were determined that he should fall;
55 Therefore, seeing that they could not hit him with their stones, they came forth with clubs to slay him.
56 But behold, every man that lifted his club to smite Ammon, he smote off their arms with his sword,
57 For he did withstand their blows by smiting their arms with the edge of his sword, insomuch that they began to be astonished and began to flee before him,
58 yea, and they were not few in number, And he caused them to flee by the strength of his arm-
59 Now six of them had fallen by the sling, but he slew none save it were their leader- And he smote off as many of their arms as were lifted against him, and they were not a few.
60 And when he had driven them afar off, he returned; And they watered their flocks and returned them to the pasture of the king, And then went in unto the king, bearing the arms which had been smote off by the sword of Ammon of those who sought to slay him;
