Passage: Alma 12:203 - Alma 13:1
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."
204 Now when Ammon had said these words unto him, he answered him, saying: "I know that if I should slay my son that I should shed innocent blood, for it is thou that hast sought to destroy him." And he stretched forth his hand to slay Ammon,
205 But Ammon withstood his blows and also smote his arm, that he could not use it.
206 Now when the king saw that Ammon could slay him, he began to plead with Ammon that he would spare his life;
207 But Ammon raised his sword and said unto him: "Behold, I will smite thee except thou wilt grant unto me that my brethren may be cast out of prison."
208 Now the king, fearing that he should lose his life, said: "If thou wilt spare me, I will grant unto thee whatsoever thou wilt ask, even to the half of the kingdom."
209 Now when Ammon saw that he had wrought upon the old king according to his desire, he saith unto him: "If thou wilt grant that my brethren may be cast out of prison, and also that Lamoni may retain his kingdom, And that ye be not displeased with him, but grant that he may do according to his own desires in whatsoever thing he thinketh, And then will I spare thee; Otherwise, I will smite thee to the earth."
210 Now when Ammon had said these words, the king began to rejoice because of his life;
211 And when he saw that Ammon had no desires to destroy him, And when he also saw the great love he had for his son Lamoni, he was astonished exceedingly and saith:
212 "Because this is all that thou hast desired, that I would release thy brethren and suffer that my son Lamoni should retain his kingdom, Behold, I will grant unto you that my son may retain his kingdom from this time and forever; And I will govern him no more.
213 "And I will also grant unto thee that thy brethren may be cast out of prison and thou and thy brethren may come unto me in my kingdom, for I shall greatly desire to see thee."
214 For the king was greatly astonished at the words which he had spoken, and also at the words which had been spoken by his son Lamoni; Therefore, he was desirous to learn them.
215 And it came to pass that Ammon and Lamoni proceeded on their journey toward the Land of Middoni.
216 And it came to pass that Lamoni found favor in the eyes of the king of the land, therefore, the brethren of Ammon were brought forth out of prison.
217 And when Ammon did meet them he was exceeding sorrowful, For behold, they were naked and their skins were worn exceedingly because of being bound with strong cords.
218 And they also had suffered hunger, thirst and all kind of afflictions; Nevertheless, they were patient in all their sufferings.
219 And as it happened, it was their lot to have fallen into the hands of a more hardened and a more stiff-necked people;
220 Therefore, they would not hearken unto their words, And they had cast them out and had smote them and had driven them from house to house and from place to place even until they had arrived to the Land of Middoni.
221 And there they were taken and cast into prison and bound with strong cords and kept in prison for many days, And were delivered by Lamoni and Ammon.
