Passage: Alma 12:141 - Alma 12:161
141 And it came to pass that she watched over the bed of her husband from that time even until that time on the morrow which Ammon had appointed that he should rise.
142 And it came to pass that he arose according to the words of Ammon; And as he arose, he stretched forth his hand unto the woman and said: "Blessed be the name of God! and blessed art thou,
143 For as sure as thou livest, behold, I have seen my Redeemer! And He shall come forth and be born of a woman, And He shall redeem all mankind who believe on His name."
144 Now when he had said these words, his heart was swollen within him and he sunk again with joy; And the queen also sank down, being overpowered by the Spirit.
145 Now Ammon seeing the Spirit of the Lord poured out according to his prayers upon the Lamanites, his breth- ren, which had been the cause of so much mourning among the Nephites, or among all the people of God because of their iniquities and their traditions,
146 And Ammon fell upon his knees and began to pour out his soul in prayer and thanksgiving to God for what He had done for his brethren;
147 And he was also overpowered with joy; And thus they all three had sunk to the earth.
148 Now when the servants of the king had seen that they had fallen, they also began to cry unto God, for the fear of the Lord had come upon them also,
149 For it was they which had stood before the king and testified unto him concerning the great power of Ammon.
150 And it came to pass that they did call on the name of the Lord in their might, even until they had all fallen to the earth, Save it were one of the Lamanitish women whose name was Abish, she having been converted unto the Lord for many years on account of a remarkable vision of her father, Thus having been converted to the Lord, never had made it known.
151 Therefore, when she saw that all the servants of Lamoni had fallen to the earth, and also her mistress, the queen, And the king and Ammon lay prostrate upon the earth, She knew that it was the power of God;
152 And supposing that this opportunity, by making known unto the people what had happened among them, that by beholding this scene it would cause them to believe in the power of God,
153 Therefore, she ran forth from house to house, making it known unto the people; And they began to assemble themselves together unto the house of the king.
154 And there came a multitude; And to their astonishment they beheld the king and the queen and their servants prostrate upon the earth; And they all lay there as though they were dead;
155 And they also saw Ammon, And behold, he was a Nephite.
156 And now the people began to murmur among themselves, Some saying that it was a great evil that had come upon them, or upon the king and his house because he had suffered that the Nephite should remain in the land.
157 But others rebuked them, saying: "The king hath brought this evil upon his house because he slew his servants who had had their flocks scattered at the Waters of Sebus."
158 And they were also rebuked by those men which had stood at the Waters of Sebus and scattered the flocks which belonged to the king,
159 For they were angry with Ammon because of the number which he had slain of their brethren at the Waters of Sebus while defending the flocks of the king.
160 Now one of them whose brother had been slain with the sword of Ammon, being exceeding angry with Ammon, drew his sword and went forth that he might let it fall upon Ammon to slay him; And as he lifted the sword to smite him, behold, he fell dead.
161 Now we see that Ammon could not be slain, for the Lord had said unto Mosiah, his father: "I will spare him and it shall be unto him according to thy faith"; Therefore, Mosiah trusted him unto the Lord.
