Passage: Alma 12:183 - Alma 12:203

183 Now it came to pass that when Ammon had heard this, he saith unto Lamoni: "Behold, my brother and brethren are in prison at Middoni and I go that I may deliver them."
184 Now Lamoni saith unto Ammon: "I know in the strength of the Lord thou canst do all things; But behold, I will go with thee to the Land of Middoni, for the king of the Land of Middoni, whose name is Antiomno, is a friend unto me;
185 Therefore, I go to the Land of Middoni that I may flatter the king of the land; And he will cast thy brethren out of prison."
186 Now Lamoni saith unto him: "Who told thee that thy brethren were in prison?"
187 And Ammon saith unto him: "No one hath told me, save it be God; And He said unto me: 'Go and deliver thy brethren, for they are in prison in the Land of Middoni.'"
188 Now when Lamoni had heard this, he caused that his servants should make ready his horses and his chariots;
189 And he saith unto Ammon: "Come, I will go with thee down to the Land of Middoni and there I will plead with the king, that he will cast thy brethren out of prison."
190 And it came to pass that as Ammon and Lamoni were a journeying thither, that they met the father of Lamoni who was king over all the land.
191 And behold, the father of Lamoni saith unto him: "Why did ye not come to the feast on that great day when I made a feast unto my sons and unto my people?"
192 And he also saith: "Whither art thou going with this Nephite which is one of the children of a liar?"
193 And it came to pass that Lamoni rehearsed unto him whither he was going, for he feared to offend him.
194 And he also told him all the cause of his tarrying in his own kingdom, that he did not go unto his father to the feast which he had prepared.
195 And now when Lamoni had rehearsed unto him all these things, behold, to his astonishment his father was angry with him and saith: "Lamoni, thou art going to deliver these Nephites which are sons of a liar!
196 Behold, he robbed our fathers, And now his children are also come amongst us that they may by their cunning and their lyings deceive us, that they again may rob us of our property."
197 Now the father of Lamoni commanded him that he should slay Ammon with the sword,
198 And he also commanded him that he should not go to the Land of Middoni, but that he should return with him to the Land of Ishmael.
199 But Lamoni saith unto him: "I will not slay Ammon, neither will I return to the Land of Ishmael, But I go to the Land of Middoni that I may release the brethren of Ammon, for I know that they are just men and holy prophets of the true God."
200 Now when his father heard these words, he was angry with him and he drew his sword, that he might smite him to the earth.
201 But Ammon stood forth and saith unto him: "Behold, thou shalt not slay thy son; Nevertheless, it were better that he should fall than thee,
202 For behold, he hath repented of his sins; But if thou shouldst fall at this time in thine anger, thy soul could not be saved.
203 "And again, it is expedient that thou shouldst forbear; For if thou shouldst slay thy son-he being an innocent man-his blood would cry from the ground to the Lord his God for vengeance to come upon thee, And perhaps thou wouldst lose thy soul."
