Passage: Alma 14:14 - Alma 14:34
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;
16 Therefore, we have named all the cities of the Lamanites in which they did repent and come to the knowledge of the truth and were converted.
17 And now it came to pass that the king and those people which were converted were desirous that they might have a name, that thereby they might be distinguished from their brethren,
18 Therefore, the king consulted with Aaron and many of their priests concerning the name that they should take upon them, that they might be distinguished;
19 And it came to pass that they called their name Anti-Nephi-Lehis; And they were called by this name and were no more called Lamanites.
20 And they began to be a very industrious people, Yea, and they were friendly with the Nephites, Therefore, they did open a correspondence with them and the curse of God did no more follow them.
21 And it came to pass that the Amalekites and the Amulonites and the Lamanites- Which were in the Land of Amulon, and also in the Land of Helam, and which were in the Land of Jerusalem and, in fine, in all the land round about, Which had not been converted and had not taken upon them the name of Anti-Nephi-Lehi- Were stirred up by the Amalekites and by the Amulonites to anger against their brethren;
22 And their hatred became exceeding sore against them, Even insomuch that they began to rebel against their king, insomuch that they would not that he should be their king; Therefore, they took up arms against the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi.
23 Now the king conferred the kingdom upon his son and he called his name Anti-Nephi-Lehi;
24 And the king died in that selfsame year that the Lamanites began to make preparations for war against the people of God.
25 Now when Ammon and his brethren and all those which had come up with him saw the preparations of the Lamanites to destroy their brethren, they came forth to the Land of Midian, And there Ammon met all his brethren;
26 And from thence they came to the Land of Ishmael, that they might hold a council with Lamoni, and also with his brother Anti-Nephi-Lehi, what they should do to defend themselves against the Lamanites.
27 Now there was not one soul among all the people which had been converted unto the Lord that would take up arms against their brethren,
28 Nay, they would not even make any preparations for war; Yea, and also their king commanded them that they should not.
29 Now these are the words which he said unto the people concerning the matter: "I thank my God, my beloved people, that our great God has in goodness sent these our brethren, the Nephites, unto us to preach unto us and to convince us of the traditions of our wicked fathers.
30 "And behold, I thank my great God that He has given us a portion of His Spirit to soften our hearts, that we have opened a correspondence with these brethren, the Nephites.
31 "And behold, I also thank my God that by opening this correspondence, We have been convinced of our sins and of the many murders which we have committed.
32 "And I also thank my God, yea, my great God, that He hath granted unto us that we might repent of these things, And also that He hath forgiven us of these our many sins and murders which we have committed, And took away the guilt from our hearts through the merits of His Son.
33 "And now behold, my brethren, since it has been all that we could do-as we were the most lost of all mankind- to repent of all our sins and the many murders which we have committed and to get God to take them away from our hearts- For it was all we could do to repent sufficiently before God that He would take away our stain-
34 Now, my best beloved brethren, since God hath taken away our stains and our swords have become bright, then let us stain our swords no more with the blood of our brethren.
