Passage: Alma 12:151 - Alma 12:171
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.
162 And it came to pass that when the multitude beheld that the man had fallen dead who lifted the sword to slay Ammon, fear came upon them all, And they durst not put forth their hands to touch him or any of those which had fallen.
163 And they began to marvel again among themselves what could be the cause of this great power, or what all these things could mean.
164 And it came to pass that there were many among them who said that Ammon was the Great Spirit; And others said he was sent by the Great Spirit;
165 But others rebuked them all, saying that, "He was a monster which hath been sent from the Nephites to torment us";
166 And there were some which said that Ammon was sent by the Great Spirit to afflict them because of their iniquities, And that it was the Great Spirit that had always attended the Nephites, which had even delivered them out of their hands,
167 And they said that it was this Great Spirit which had destroyed so many of their brethren, the Lamanites; And thus the contention began to be exceeding sharp among them.
168 And while they were thus contending, the woman servant, which had caused the multitude to be gathered together, came; And when she saw the contention which was among the multitude, she was exceeding sorrowful, even unto tears.
169 And it came to pass that she went and took the queen by the hand, that perhaps she might raise her from the ground; And as soon as she touched her hand, she arose and stood upon her feet and cried with a loud voice, saying:
170 "O blessed Jesus who has saved me from an awful hell! O blessed God, have mercy on this people!"
171 And when she had said this, she clapped her hands, being filled with joy, speaking many words which were not understood.
