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. 35 "Behold, I say unto you, Nay; Let us retain our swords, that they be not stained with the blood of our brethren, 36 For perhaps if we should stain our swords again, They can no more be washed bright through the blood of the Son of our great God which shall be shed for the atonement of our sins. 37 "And the great God has had mercy on us and made these things known unto us, that we might not perish; 38 Yea, and He hath made these things known unto us beforehand because He loveth our souls, as well as He loveth our children; Therefore, in His mercy He doth visit us by His angels, that the plan of salvation might be made known unto us, as well as unto future generations; O how merciful is our God! 39 "And now behold, since it has been as much as we could do to get our stains taken away from us and our swords are made bright, 40 Let us hide them away, that they may be kept bright as a testimony to our God at the last day-or at the day that we shall be brought to stand before Him to be judged- that we have not stained our swords in the blood of our brethren since He imparted His word unto us and has made us clean thereby. 41 "And now my brethren, if our brethren seek to destroy us, behold, we will hide away our swords, Yea, even we will bury them deep in the earth, that they may be kept bright as a testimony that we have never used them, at the last day; And if our brethren destroy us, behold, we shall go to our God and shall be saved." 42 And now it came to pass that when the king had made an end of these sayings and all the people were assembled together, They took their swords and all the weapons which were used for the shedding of man's blood and they did bury them up deep in the earth; 43 And this they did, it being in their view a testimony to God, and also to men, that they never would use weapons again for the shedding of man's blood; 44 And this they did, vouching and covenanting with God that rather than to shed the blood of their brethren, they would give up their own lives, 45 And rather than to take away from a brother, they would give unto him, And rather than to spend their days in idleness, they would labor abundantly with their hands. 46 And thus we see that when these Lamanites were brought to believe and to know the truth, that they were firm and would suffer even unto death rather than to commit sin; 47 And thus we see that they buried the weapons of peace, or they buried the weapons of war for peace. 48 And it came to pass that their brethren, the Lamanites, made preparations for war and came up to the Land of Nephi for the purpose of dethroning the king and to place another in his stead, and also of destroying the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi out of the land. 49 And it came to pass that when the people saw that they were coming against them, they went out to meet them and prostrated themselves before them to the earth and began to call on the name of the Lord; 50 And thus they were in this attitude when the Lamanites began to fall upon them and began to slay them with the sword; And thus without meeting any resistance, they did slay a thousand and five of them; And we know that they are blessed, for they have gone to dwell with their God. 51 Now when the Lamanites saw that their brethren would not flee from the sword, neither would they turn aside to the right hand or to the left, But that they would lay down and perish and praised God, even in the very act of perishing under the sword- Now when the Lamanites saw this, they did forbear from slaying them; 52 And there were many whose hearts had swollen in them for those of their brethren who had fallen under the sword, for they repented of the things which they had done.

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
