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. 3 And he caused that upon those works of timbers that there should be a frame of pickets built upon the timbers round about, And they were strong and high. And he caused towers to be erected that overlooked those works of pickets. 4 And he caused places of security to be built upon those towers, that the stones and the arrows of the Lamanites could not hurt them; 5 And they were prepared that they could cast stones from the top thereof, according to their pleasure and their strength, And slay him which should attempt to approach near the walls of the city. 6 Thus Moroni did prepare strongholds against the coming of their enemies, round about every city in all the land. 7 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that his armies should go forth into the East Wilderness; Yea, and they went forth and drove all the Lamanites which were in the East Wilderness into their own lands, which were south of the Land of Zarahemla. 8 And the Land of Nephi did run in a straight course from the East Sea to the west. 9 And it came to pass that when Moroni had driven all the Lamanites out of the East Wilderness, which was north of the lands of their own possessions, He caused that the inhabitants, which were in the Land of Zarahemla and in the land round about, should go forth into the East Wilderness, even to the borders by the seashore, and possess the land. 10 And he also placed armies on the south in the borders of their possessions, And caused them to erect fortifications, that they might secure their armies and their people from the hands of their enemies. 11 And thus he cut off all the strongholds of the Lamanites in the East Wilderness, yea, and also on the west, Fortifying the line between the Nephites and the Lamanites, between the Land of Zarahemla and the Land of Nephi, from the West Sea running by the head of the River Sidon, 12 The Nephites possessing all the Land Northward, yea, even all the land which was northward of the Land Bountiful, according to their pleasure. 13 Thus Moroni with his armies, which did increase daily because of the assurance of protection which his works did bring forth unto them, Therefore, they did seek to cut off the strength and the power of the Lamanites from off the lands of their possessions, That they should have no power upon the lands of their possessions. 14 And it came to pass that the Nephites began the foundation of a city, And they called the name of the city Moroni; And it was by the East Sea, And it was on the south by the line of the possessions of the Lamanites. 15 And they also began a foundation for a city between the City of Moroni and the City of Aaron, joining the borders of Aaron and Moroni; And they called the name of the city, or the land, Nephihah. 16 And they also began in that same year to build many cities on the north, One in a particular manner which they called Lehi, which was in the north by the borders of the seashore. And thus ended the twentieth year. 17 And in these prosperous circumstances were the people of Nephi, in the commencement of the twenty and first year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi; 18 And they did prosper exceedingly and they became exceeding rich, Yea, and they did multiply and wax strong in the land. 19 And thus we see how merciful and just are all the dealings of the Lord, to the fulfilling of all His words unto the children of men; 20 Yea, we can behold that His words are verified, even at this time, which He spake unto Lehi, saying: "Blessed art thou and thy children; And they shall be blessed, and inasmuch as they shall keep My commandments, They shall prosper in the land; 21 But remember, inasmuch as they will not keep My commandments, They shall be cut off from the presence of the Lord." 22 And we see that these promises have been verified to the people of Nephi; For it has been their quarrelings and their contentions- yea, their murderings and their plunderings, their idolatry, their whoredoms and their abominations which were among themselves-which brought upon them their wars and their destructions.

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.
