Passage: Alma 21:81 - Alma 21:101
81 And now it came to pass that the king was wroth because of their disobedience; Therefore, he gave Amalickiah the command of that part of his army which was obedient unto his commands, And commanded him that he should go forth and compel them to arms.
82 Now behold, this was the desire of Amalickiah; For he being a very subtle man to do evil, Therefore, he laid the plan in his heart to dethrone the king of the Lamanites.
83 And now he had got the command of those parts of the Lamanites which were in favor of the king, And he sought to gain favor of those which were not obedient.
84 Therefore, he went forward to the place which was called Oneidah-for thither had all the Lamanites fled- For they discovered the army coming and they supposed that they were coming to destroy them, Therefore, they fled to Oneidah to the place of arms.
85 And they had appointed a man to be a king and a leader over them, Being fixed in their minds with a determined resolution that they would not be subjected to go against the Nephites.
86 And it came to pass that they had gathered themselves together upon the top of the mount, which was called Antipas, in preparation to battle.
87 Now it was not Amalickiah's intention to give them battle, according to the commandments of the king, But behold, it was his intention to gain favor with the armies of the Lamanites, that he might place himself at their head and dethrone the king and take possession of the kingdom.
88 And behold, it came to pass that he caused his army to pitch their tents in the valley which was near the Mount Antipas.
89 And it came to pass that when it was night, he sent a secret embassy into the Mount Antipas, Desiring that the leader of those which were upon the mount, whose name was Lehonti, that he should come down to the foot of the mount, for he desired to speak with him.
90 And it came to pass that when Lehonti received the mes- sage, he durst not go down to the foot of the mount.
91 And it came to pass that Amalickiah sent again the second time, desiring him to come down. And it came to pass that Lehonti would not; And he sent again the third time.
92 And it came to pass that when Amalickiah found that he could not get Lehonti to come down off from the mount, he went up into the mount, nearly to Lehonti's camp; And he sent again the fourth time his message unto Lehonti, desiring that he would come down and that he would bring his guards with him.
93 And it came to pass that when Lehonti had come down with his guards to Amalickiah, That Amalickiah desired him to come down with his army in the nighttime and surround those men in their camps over whom the king had given him command, And that he would deliver them up into Lehonti's hands if he would make him, Amalickiah, a second leader over the whole army.
94 And it came to pass that Lehonti came down with his men and surrounded the men of Amalickiah, So that before they awoke at the dawn of the day, they were surrounded by the armies of Lehonti.
95 And it came to pass that when they saw that they were surrounded, They pled with Amalickiah that he would suffer them to fall in with their brethren, that they might not be destroyed.
96 Now this was the very thing which Amalickiah desired. And it came to pass that he delivered his men, contrary to the commands of the king;
97 Now this was the thing that Amalickiah desired, that he might accomplish his designs in dethroning the king.
98 Now it was the custom among the Lamanites, if their chief leader was killed, to appoint the second leader to be their chief leader.
99 And it came to pass that Amalickiah caused that one of his servants should administer poison by degrees to Lehonti, that he died;
100 Now when Lehonti was dead, the Lamanites appointed Amalickiah to be their leader and their chief commander.
101 And it came to pass that Amalickiah marched with his armies-for he had gained his desires-to the Land of Nephi, to the City of Nephi, which was the chief city;
