Passage: Alma 13:67 - Alma 14:5
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,
71 Yea, and also on the west of the Land of Zarahemla, in the borders by the seashore, And on the west in the Land of Nephi in the place of their fathers' first inheritance, and thus bordering along by the seashore;
72 And also there were many Lamanites on the east by the seashore whither the Nephites had driven them; And thus the Nephites were nearly surrounded by the Lamanites.
73 Nevertheless, the Nephites had taken possession of all the northern parts of the land bordering on the wilderness at the head of the River Sidon, from the east to the west, round about on the wilderness sides on the north, Even until they came to the land which they called Bountiful;
74 And it bordered upon the land which they called Desolation, It being so far northward that it came into the land which had been peopled and had been destroyed- of whose bones we have spoken-which was discovered by the people of Zarahemla, It being the place of their first landing; And they came from there up into the South Wilderness;
75 Thus the land on the northward was called Desolation, And the land on the southward was called Bountiful, It being the wilderness which was filled with all manner of wild animals of every kind, a part of which had come from the Land Northward for food.
76 And now it was only the distance of a day and a half's journey for a Nephite on the line Bountiful and the Land Desolation, from the east to the West Sea;
77 And thus the Land of Nephi and the Land of Zarahemla were nearly surrounded by water, there being a small neck of land between the Land Northward and the Land Southward.
78 And it came to pass that the Nephites had inhabited the Land Bountiful, even from the east unto the West Sea;
79 And thus the Nephites in their wisdom, with their guards and their armies, had hemmed in the Lamanites on the south, That thereby they should have no more possession on the north, that they might not overrun the Land Northward;
80 Therefore, the Lamanites could have no more possessions, only in the Land of Nephi and the wilderness round about.
81 Now this was wisdom in the Nephites; As the Lamanites were an enemy to them, they would not suffer their afflictions on every hand, And also that they might have a country whither they might flee according to their desires.
82 And now I, after having said this, return again to the account of Ammon and Aaron, Omner and Himni and their brethren.
1 Behold, now it came to pass that the king of the Lamanites sent a proclamation among all his people that they should not lay their hands on Ammon or Aaron or Omner or Himni, Nor neither of their brethren which should go forth preaching the word of God in whatsoever place they should be, in any part of their land.
2 Yea, he sent a decree among them that they should not lay their hands on them to bind them or to cast them into prison, Neither should they spit upon them, nor smite them, nor cast them out of their synagogues, nor scourge them,
3 Neither should they cast stones at them; But that they should have free access to their houses, and also their temples and their sanctuaries,
4 And thus they might go forth and preach the word according to their desires. For the king had been converted unto the Lord and all his household;
5 Therefore, he sent this proclamation throughout the land unto his people that the word of God might have no obstruction, But that it might go forth throughout all the land that his people might be convinced concerning the wicked traditions of their fathers,
