Passage: Alma 16:72 - Alma 16:92

72 And it came to pass that the curse was not taken off of Korihor, But he was cast out and went about from house to house a begging for his food.
73 Now the knowledge of what had happened unto Korihor was immediately published throughout all the land, Yea, the proclamation was sent forth by the chief judge to all the people in the land, declaring unto those who had believed in the words of Korihor that they must speedily repent lest the same judgments would come unto them.
74 And it came to pass that they were all convinced of the wickedness of Korihor, therefore they were all converted again unto the Lord; And this put an end to the iniquity after the manner of Korihor;
75 And Korihor did go about from house to house a begging food for his support.
76 And it came to pass that as he went forth among the people- Yea, among a people which had separated themselves from the Nephites and called themselves Zoramites, being led by a man whose name was Zoram- And as he went forth amongst them, behold, he was run upon and trodden down, even until he was dead.
77 And thus we see the end of him who perverteth the ways of the Lord. And thus we see that the devil will not support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to hell.
78 Now it came to pass that after the end of Korihor, Alma having received tidings that the Zoramites were perverting the ways of the Lord and that Zoram, which was their leader, was leading the hearts of the people to bow down to dumb idols, etc., His heart again began to sicken because of the iniquity of the people;
79 For it was the cause of great sorrow to Alma to know of the iniquity among his people, Therefore, his heart was exceeding sorrowful because of the separation of the Zoramites from the Nephites.
80 Now the Zoramites had gathered themselves together in a land which they called Antionum, Which was east of the Land of Zarahemla, Which lay nearly bordering upon the seashore, Which was south of the Land Jershon, Which also bordered upon the Wilderness South, which wilderness was full of the Lamanites.
81 Now the Nephites greatly feared that the Zoramites would enter into a correspondence with the Lamanites and that it would be the means of great loss on the part of the Nephites.
82 And now, as the preaching of the word had had a greater tendency to lead the people to do that which was just, Yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword or anything else which had happened unto them, Therefore, Alma thought it was expedient that they should try the virtue of the word of God.
83 Therefore, he took Ammon and Aaron and Omner- and Himni he did leave in the church in Zarahemla, but the former three he took with him-and also Amulek and Zeezrom which were at Melek, And he also took two of his sons;
84 Now the eldest of his sons he took not with him-and his name was Helaman-but the names of those which he took with him were Shiblon and Coreanton; And these are the names of those which went with him among the Zoramites to preach unto them the word.
85 Now the Zoramites were dissenters from the Nephites, therefore they had had the word of God preached unto them;
86 But they had fallen into great errors, for they would not observe to keep the commandments of God and His statutes according to the law of Moses,
87 Neither would they observe the performances of the church to continue in prayer and supplication to God daily, that they might not enter into temptation, Yea, in fine, they did pervert the ways of the Lord in very many instances; Therefore, for this cause Alma and his brethren went into the land to preach the word unto them.
88 Now when they had come into the land, Behold, to their astonishment, they found that the Zoramites had built synagogues, And that they did gather themselves together on one day of the week, which day they did call the day of the Lord;
89 And they did worship after a manner which Alma and his brethren had never beheld, For they had a place built up in the center of their synagogue-a place of standing which was high above the head, And the top thereof would only admit one person;
90 Therefore, whosoever desired to worship must go forth and stand upon the top thereof, And stretch forth his hands toward the heavens and cry with a loud voice, saying: "Holy, Holy God! We believe that Thou art God, And we believe that Thou art holy, and that Thou wast a Spirit, and that Thou art a Spirit, and that Thou wilt be a Spirit forever.
91 "Holy God, we believe that Thou hast separated us from our brethren; And we do not believe in the traditions of our brethren which was handed down to them by the childishness of their fathers, But we believe that Thou hast elected us to be Thy holy children;
92 And also, Thou hast made it known unto us that there shall be no Christ, But Thou art the same yesterday, today and forever; And Thou hast elected us that we shall be saved, whilst all around us are elected to be cast by Thy wrath down to hell, For the which holiness, O God, we thank Thee.
