Passage: Alma 21:168 - Alma 22:2
168 And behold, Moroni had appointed Lehi to be chief captain over the men of that city, And it was that same Lehi which fought with the Lamanites in the valley on the east of the River Sidon.
169 And now behold, it came to pass that when the Lamanites had found that Lehi commanded the city, They were again disappointed, for they feared Lehi exceedingly; Nevertheless, their chief captains had sworn with an oath to attack the city, Therefore, they brought up their armies.
170 Now behold, the Lamanites could not get into their forts of security by any other way, save by the entrance, Because of the highness of the bank which had been thrown up and the depth of the ditch which had been dug round about, save it were by the entrance.
171 And thus were the Nephites prepared to destroy all such as should attempt to climb up to enter the fort by any other way, by casting over stones and arrows at them;
172 Thus they were prepared-yea, a body of their most strong men with their swords and their slings-to smite down all who should attempt to come into their place of security by the place of entrance; And thus were they prepared to defend themselves against the Lamanites.
173 And it came to pass that the captains of the Lamanites brought up their armies before the place of entrance, And began to contend with the Nephites, to get into their place of security;
174 But behold, they were driven back, from time to time, insomuch that they were slain with an immense slaughter.
175 Now when they found that they could not obtain power over the Nephites by the pass, They began to dig down their banks of earth that they might obtain a pass to their armies, that they might have an equal chance to fight;
176 But behold, in these attempts, they were swept off by the stones and the arrows which were thrown at them, And instead of filling up their ditches by pulling down the banks of earth, they were filled up in a measure with their dead and wounded bodies.
177 Thus the Nephites had all power over their enemies. And thus the Lamanites did attempt to destroy the Nephites, until their chief captains were all slain;
178 Yea, and more than a thousand of the Lamanites were slain, While on the other hand there was not a single soul of the Nephites which were slain-
179 There were about fifty which were wounded, which had been exposed to the arrows of the Lamanites through the pass, But they were shielded by their shields and their breast- plates and their headplates, insomuch that their wounds were upon their legs, many of which were very severe.
180 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that their chief captains were all slain, they fled into the wilderness.
181 And it came to pass that they returned to the Land of Nephi to inform their king, Amalickiah, who was a Nephite by birth, concerning their great loss.
182 And it came to pass that he was exceeding angry with his people because he had not obtained his desire over the Nephites- He had not subjected them to the yoke of bondage;
183 Yea, he was exceeding wroth, And he did curse God and also Moroni, And swearing with an oath that he would drink his blood; And this because Moroni had kept the commandments of God in preparing for the safety of his people.
184 And it came to pass that on the other hand, the people of Nephi did thank the Lord their God because of His miraculous power in delivering them from the hands of their enemies.
185 And thus ended the nineteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi; Yea, and there was continual peace among them and exceeding great prosperity in the church because of their heed and diligence which they gave unto the word of God, Which was declared unto them by Helaman and Shiblon and Coreanton and Ammon and his brethren, etc.,
186 Yea, and by all those which had been ordained by the holy order of God, Being baptized unto repentance and sent forth to preach among the people, etc.
1 And now it came to pass that Moroni did not stop making preparations for war-or to defend themselves against the Lamanites. For he caused that his armies should commence- in the commencement of the twentieth year of the reign of the judges- That they should commence in digging up heaps of earth round about all the cities throughout all the land which was possessed by the Nephites.
2 And upon the top of these ridges of earth he caused that there should be timbers, yea, works of timbers built up to the height of a man round about the cities.
