Passage: Alma 13:50 - Alma 13:70
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
58 and they pled with the queen, saying: "Why commandest thou that we should slay these men when behold, one of them is mightier than us all? Therefore, we shall fall before them."
59 Now when the queen saw the fear of the servants, she also began to fear exceedingly, lest there should some evil come upon her,
60 And she commanded her servants that they should go and call the people, that they might slay Aaron and his brethren.
61 Now when Aaron saw the determination of the queen- and he also, knowing the hardness of the hearts of the people, feared lest that a multitude should assemble themselves together and there should be a great contention and a disturbance among them-
62 Therefore, he put forth his hand and raised the king from the earth and said unto him, "Stand!" And he stood upon his feet, receiving his strength;
63 Now this was done in the presence of the queen and many of his servants, And when they saw it, they greatly marveled and began to fear;
64 And the king stood forth and began to minister unto them, And he did minister unto them insomuch that his whole household were converted unto the Lord.
65 Now there was a multitude gathered together because of the commandment of the queen; And there began to be great murmurings among them because of Aaron and his brethren,
66 But the king stood forth among them and administered unto them. And it came to pass that they were pacified toward Aaron and his brethren which were with him.
67 And it came to pass that when the king saw that the people were pacified, he caused that Aaron and his brethren should stand forth in the midst of the multitude and that they should preach the word unto them.
68 And it came to pass that the king sent a proclamation throughout all the land, amongst all his people which were in all his land, which were in all the regions round about, Which was bordering even to the sea on the east and on the west and which was divided from the Land of Zarahemla by a narrow strip of wilderness,
69 Which ran from the Sea East even to the Sea West and round about on the borders of the seashore and the borders of the wilderness which was on the north by the Land of Zarahemla, Through the borders of Manti, by the head of the River Sidon, running from the east toward the west; And thus were the Lamanites and the Nephites divided.
70 Now the more idle part of the Lamanites lived in the wilderness and dwelt in tents; And they were spread through the wilderness on the west in the Land of Nephi,
