Passage: Alma 13:37 - Alma 13:57
37 And also, what is this that Ammon said, 'If ye will repent, ye shall be saved, And if ye will not repent, ye shall be cast off at the last day'?"
38 And Aaron answered him and said unto him: "Believest thou that there is a God?"
39 And the king saith: "I know that the Amalekites say that there is a God, And I have granted unto them that they should build sanctuaries, that they might assemble themselves together to worship Him; And if now thou sayest there is a God, behold, I will believe."
40 And now when Aaron heard this, his heart began to rejoice and he saith: "Behold, assuredly as thou livest, O king, there is a God."
41 And the king saith: "Is God that Great Spirit that brought our fathers out of the Land of Jerusalem?"
42 And Aaron said unto him: "Yea, He is that Great Spirit; And He created all things, both in heaven and in earth; Believest thou this?"
43 And he saith: "Yea, I believe that the Great Spirit created all things, And I desire that ye should tell me concerning all these things, And I will believe thy words."
44 And it came to pass that when Aaron saw that the king would believe his words, he began from the creation of Adam, reading the scriptures unto the king- How God created man after His own image, And that God gave him commandments, And that because of transgression, man had fallen.
45 And Aaron did expound unto him the scriptures from the creation of Adam, Laying the fall of man before him, and their carnal state, And also the plan of redemption which was prepared from the foundation of the world through Christ for all whosoever would believe on His name;
46 And since man had fallen, he could not merit anything of himself; But the sufferings and death of Christ atoneth for their sins through faith and repentance, etc.,
47 And that He breaketh the bands of death, that the grave shall have no victory, And that the sting of death should be swallowed up in the hopes of glory; And Aaron did expound all these things unto the king.
48 And it came to pass that after Aaron had expounded these things unto him, the king saith: "What shall I do that I may have this eternal life of which thou hast spoken?
49 Yea, what shall I do that I may be born of God, having this wicked spirit rooted out of my breast, And receive His Spirit, that I may be filled with joy, that I may not be cast off at the last day?"
50 Behold, saith he: "I will give up all that I possess; Yea, I will forsake my kingdom that I may receive this great joy."
51 But Aaron saith unto him: "If thou desirest this thing, if thou will bow down before God, Yea, if thou repent of all thy sins and will bow down before God and call on His name in faith, believing that ye shall receive, Then shalt thou receive the hope which thou desirest."
52 And it came to pass that when Aaron had said these words, the king did bow down before the Lord upon his knees, Yea, even he did prostrate himself upon the earth and cried mightily, saying: "O God, Aaron hath told me that there is a God;
53 And if there is a God and if Thou art God, wilt Thou make Thyself known unto me? And I will give away all my sins to know Thee and that I may be raised from the dead and be saved at the last day!"
54 And now when the king had said these words, he was struck as if he were dead.
55 And it came to pass that his servants ran and told the queen all that had happened unto the king
56 and she came in unto the king; And when she saw him lay as if he were dead, and also Aaron and his brethren standing as though they had been the cause of his fall, She was angry with them and commanded that her servants, or the servants of the king, should take them and slay them.
57 Now the servants had seen the cause of the king's fall, Therefore, they durst not lay their hands on Aaron and his brethren
