Passage: Alma 13:77 - Alma 14:15

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.

Alma 14
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,
6 And that they might be convinced that they were all brethren, And that they had not ought to murder, nor to plunder, nor to steal, nor to commit adultery, nor to commit any manner of wickedness.
7 And now it came to pass that when the king had sent forth this proclamation, that Aaron and his brethren went forth from city to city and from one house of worship to another,
8 Establishing churches and consecrating priests and teachers throughout the land among the Lamanites, to preach and to teach the word of God among them. And thus they began to have great success,
9 And thousands were brought to the knowledge of the Lord, Yea, thousands were brought to believe in the traditions of the Nephites; And they were taught the records and the prophecies which were handed down, even to the present time.
10 And as sure as the Lord liveth, so sure as many as believed-or as many as were brought to the knowledge of the truth through the preaching of Ammon and his brethren, according to the spirit of revelation and of prophecy and the power of God working miracles in them-
11 Yea, I say unto you, as the Lord liveth, as many of the Lamanites as believed in their preaching and were converted unto the Lord never did fall away, for they became a righteous people;
12 They did lay down the weapons of their rebellion that they did not fight against God anymore, neither against any of their brethren.
13 Now these are they which were converted unto the Lord- The people of the Lamanites which were in the Land of Ishmael, And also of the people of the Lamanites which were in the Land of Middoni, And also of the people of the Lamanites which were in the City of Nephi, And also of the people of the Lamanites which were in the Land of Shilom, And which were in the Land of Shemlon, And in the City of Lemuel, And in the City of Shimnilon-
14 And these are the names of the cities of the Lamanites which were converted unto the Lord; And these are they that laid down the weapons of their rebellion, yea, all their weapons of war; And they were all Lamanites.
15 And the Amalekites were not converted, save only one, neither were any of the Amulonites, But they did harden their hearts, and also the hearts of the Lamanites in that part of the land whithersoever they dwelt, yea, and all their villages and all their cities;
