Passage: Alma 21:93 - Alma 21:113
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;
102 And the king came out to meet him with his guards, For he supposed that Amalickiah had fulfilled his com- mands and that Amalickiah had gathered together so great an army for to go against the Nephites to battle.
103 But behold, as the king came out to meet him, Amalickiah caused that his servants should go forth to meet the king;
104 And they went forth and bowed themselves before the king, as if to reverence him because of his greatness.
105 And it came to pass that the king put forth his hand to raise them, As was the custom with the Lamanites and a token of peace, which custom they had taken from the Nephites.
106 And it came to pass that when he had raised the first from the ground, Behold, he stabbed the king to the heart and he fell to the earth.
107 Now the servants of the king fled, And the servants of Amalickiah raised a cry, saying: "Behold, the servants of the king have stabbed him to the heart! And he has fallen and they have fled; Behold, come and see."
108 And it came to pass that Amalickiah commanded that his armies should march forth and see what had happened to the king,
109 And when they had come to the spot and found the king lying in his gore, Amalickiah pretended to be wroth and said: "Whosoever loved the king, let him go forth and pursue his servants that they may be slain."
110 And it came to pass that when all they which loved the king, when they heard these words, came forth and pursued after the servants of the king.
111 Now when the servants of the king saw an army pursuing after them, They were frightened again, and fled into the wilderness, and came over into the Land of Zarahemla, and joined the people of Ammon;
112 And the army which pursued after them returned, having pursued after them in vain, And thus Amalickiah, by his fraud, gained the hearts of the people.
113 And it came to pass on the morrow, he entered the City Nephi with his armies and took possession of the city.
