Passage: Alma 20:42 - Alma 20:62

42 And it came to pass that the Lamanites became frightened because of the great destruction among them, even until they began to flee toward the River Sidon;
43 And they were pursued by Lehi and his men, And they were driven by Lehi into the waters of Sidon, And they crossed the waters of Sidon;
44 And Lehi retained his armies upon the bank of the River Sidon, that they should not cross.
45 And it came to pass that Moroni and his army met the army of the Lamanites in the valley on the other side of the River Sidon. And it came to pass that Moroni and his army began to fall upon them and to slay them.
46 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did flee again before them, toward the Land of Manti, And they were met again by the armies of Moroni.
47 Now in this case the Lamanites did fight exceedingly, Yea, never had the Lamanites been known to have fought with such exceeding great strength and courage- No, not even from the beginning;
48 And they were inspired by the Zoramites and the Amalekites, which were their chief captains and leaders, And by Zerahemnah who was their chief captain, or their chief leader and commander;
49 Yea, they did fight like dragons and many of the Nephites were slain by their hands- Yea, for they did smite in two many of their headplates, And they did pierce many of their breastplates, And they did smite off many of their arms; And thus the Lamanites did smite in their fierce anger.
50 Nevertheless, the Nephites were inspired by a better cause, For they were not fighting for monarchy nor power, But they were fighting for their homes and their liberties, their wives and their children and their all, yea, for their rights of worship and their church;
51 And they were doing that which they felt it was the duty which they owed to their God, For the Lord had said unto them, and also unto their fathers that, "Inasmuch as ye are not guilty of the first offense, neither the second, Ye shall not suffer yourselves to be slain by the hands of your enemies."
52 And again, the Lord hath said that, "Ye shall defend your families even unto bloodshed," Therefore, for this cause were the Nephites contending with the Lamanites- To defend themselves and their families and their lands, their country and their rights and their religion.
53 And it came to pass that when the men of Moroni saw the fierceness and the anger of the Lamanites, they were about to shrink and flee from them;
54 And Moroni, perceiving their intent, sent forth and inspired their hearts with these thoughts- yea, the thoughts of their lands, their liberty, yea, their freedom from bondage.
55 And it came to pass that they turned upon the Lamanites, And they cried with one voice unto the Lord their God for their liberty and their freedom from bondage;
56 And they began to stand against the Lamanites with power; And in the selfsame hour that they cried unto the Lord for their freedom, the Lamanites began to flee before them, And they fled even to the waters of Sidon.
57 Now the Lamanites were more numerous, yea, by more than double the number of the Nephites; Nevertheless, they were driven insomuch that they were gathered together in one body in the valley upon the bank by the River Sidon;
58 Therefore, the armies of Moroni encircled them about, yea, even on both sides of the river, For behold, on the east were the men of Lehi;
59 Therefore, when Zerahemnah saw the men of Lehi on the east of the River Sidon and the armies of Moroni on the west of the River Sidon, that they were encircled about by the Nephites, They were struck with terror.
60 Now Moroni, when he saw their terror, he commanded his men that they should stop shedding their blood.
61 And it came to pass that they did stop and withdrew a pace from them;
62 And Moroni said unto Zerahemnah: "Behold, Zerahemnah, that we do not desire to be men of blood;
