10 yea, and also their liberty, That they might worship God according to their desires; For they knew that if they should fall into the hands of the Lamanites, That whosoever should worship God in spirit and in truth, the true and the living God, the Lamanites would destroy. 11 Yea, and they also knew the extreme hatred of the Lamanites toward their brethren which were the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi, which were called the people of Ammon; 12 And they would not take up arms- Yea, they had entered into a covenant and they would not break it- Therefore, if they should fall into the hands of the Lamanites, they would be destroyed. 13 And the Nephites would not suffer that they should be destroyed, Therefore, they gave them lands for their inheritance; 14 And the people of Ammon did give unto the Nephites a large portion of their substance to support their armies; 15 And thus the Nephites were compelled, alone, to withstand against the Lamanites which were a compound of Laman and Lemuel and the sons of Ishmael, And all those which had dissented from the Nephites, which were Amalekites and Zoramites, And the descendants of the priests of Noah; 16 Now those descendants were as numerous, nearly, as were the Nephites; And thus the Nephites were obliged to contend with their brethren, even unto bloodshed. 17 And it came to pass as the armies of the Lamanites had gathered together in the Land of Antionum, Behold, the armies of the Nephites were prepared to meet them in the Land of Jershon. 18 Now the leader of the Nephites-or the man which had been appointed to be the chief captain over the Nephites- Now the chief captain took the command of all the armies of the Nephites-and his name was Moroni, 19 and Moroni took all the command- and the governments of their wars; And he was only twenty and five years old when he was appointed chief commander over the armies of the Nephites. 20 And it came to pass that he met the Lamanites in the borders of Jershon; And his people were armed with swords and with scimitars and all manner of weapons of war. 21 And it came to pass that when the armies of the Lamanites saw that the people of Nephi- Or that Moroni had prepared his people with breastplates and with armshields, yea, and also shields to defend their heads, And also they were dressed with thick clothing- 22 Now the army of Zerahemnah was not prepared with any such thing; 23 They had only their swords and their scimitars, their bows and their arrows, their stones and their slings; But they were naked, save it were a skin which was girded about their loins, Yea, all were naked, save it were the Zoramites and the Amalekites; 24 But they were not armed with breastplates nor shields, Therefore, they were exceeding fraid of the armies of the Nephites, because of their armor, Notwithstanding their number being so much greater than the Nephites. 25 Behold, now it came to pass that they durst not come against the Nephites in the borders of Jershon; Therefore, they departed out of the Land of Antionum into the wilderness and took their journey round about in the wilderness, away by the head of the River Sidon, that they might come into the Land of Manti and take possession of the land, For they did not suppose that the armies of Moroni would know whither they had gone. 26 But it came to pass as soon as they had departed into the wilderness, Moroni sent spies into the wilderness to watch their camp, And Moroni, also knowing of the prophecies of Alma, sent certain men unto him, desiring him that he should inquire of the Lord whither the armies of the Nephites should go to defend themselves against the Lamanites. 27 And it came to pass that the word of the Lord came unto Alma, And Alma informed the messengers of Moroni that the armies of the Lamanites were marching round about in the wilderness, That they might come over into the Land of Manti, That they might commence an attack upon the more weak part of the people; 28 And those messengers went and delivered the message unto Moroni. 29 Now Moroni leaving a part of his army in the Land of Jershon, lest by any means a part of the Lamanites should come into that land and take possession of the city, And Moroni took the remainder part of his army and marched over into the Land of Manti; 30 And he caused that all the people in that quarter of the land should gather themselves together to battle against the Lamanites to defend their lands and their country, their rights and their liberties; Therefore they were prepared against the time of the coming of the Lamanites.

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.
