Passage: Alma 22:28 - Alma 23:4

28 But behold, the people which possessed the Land of Lehi fled to the camp of Moroni and appealed unto him for assistance, For behold, they were not in the wrong.
29 And it came to pass that when the people of Morionton, which were led by a man whose name was Morionton, found that the people of Lehi had fled to the camp of Moroni, They were exceeding fearful lest the army of Moroni should come upon them and destroy them;
30 Therefore, Morionton put it into their hearts that they should flee to the land which was northward, which was covered with large bodies of water, And take possession of the land which was northward.
31 And behold, they would have carried this plan into effect, which would have been a cause to have been lamented, But behold, Morionton, being a man of much passion, Therefore, he was angry with one of his maidservants and he fell upon her and beat her much.
32 And it came to pass that she fled and came over to the camp of Moroni and told Moroni all things concerning the matter; And also concerning their intentions to flee into the Land Northward.
33 Now behold, the people which were in the Land Bountiful- Or rather, Moroni feared that they would hearken to the words of Morionton and unite with his people; And thus he would obtain possession of those parts of the land, which would lay a foundation for serious consequences among the people of Nephi, Yea, which consequences would lead to the overthrow of their liberty;
34 Therefore, Moroni sent an army, with their camp, to head the people of Morionton to stop their flight into the Land Northward.
35 And it came to pass that they did not head them until they had come to the borders of the Land Desolation; And there they did head them by the Narrow Pass which led by the sea into the Land Northward, Yea, by the sea on the west and on the east.
36 And it came to pass that the army which was sent by Moroni-which was led by a man whose name was Teancum-did meet the people of Morionton;
37 And so stubborn were the people of Morionton, being inspired by his wickedness and his flattering words, That a battle commenced between them in the which Teancum did slay Morionton and defeat his army and took them prisoners and returned to the camp of Moroni.
38 And thus ended the twenty and fourth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi. And thus were the people of Morionton brought back.
39 And upon their covenanting to keep the peace, they were restored to the Land of Morionton, And a union took place between them and the people of Lehi; And they were also restored to their lands.
40 And it came to pass that in the same year that the people of Nephi had peace restored unto them, That Nephihah, the second chief judge, died, having filled the judgment seat with perfect uprightness before God;
41 Nevertheless, he had refused Alma to take possession of those records and those things which were esteemed by Alma and his fathers to be most sacred; Therefore, Alma had conferred them upon his son Helaman.
42 Behold, it came to pass that the son of Nephihah was appointed to fill the judgment seat in the stead of his father; Yea, he was appointed chief judge and governor over the people, with an oath and sacred ordinance to judge righteously, And to keep the peace and the freedom of the people, And to grant unto them their sacred privileges to worship the Lord their God,
43 Yea, to support and maintain the cause of God all his days, And to bring the wicked to justice according to their crime. Now behold, his name was Pahoron;
44 And Pahoron did fill the seat of his father and did commence his reign in the end of the twenty and fourth year over the people of Nephi.

Alma 23
1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, They having established peace between the people of Lehi and the people of Morionton concerning their lands, And having commenced the twenty and fifth year in peace;
2 Nevertheless, they did not long maintain an entire peace in the land, For there began to be a contention among the people concerning the chief judge Pahoron. For behold, there were a part of the people which desired that a few particular points of the law should be altered;
3 But behold, Pahoron would not alter, nor suffer the law to be altered; Therefore, he did not hearken to those who had sent in their voices with their petitions concerning the altering of the law;
4 Therefore, those which were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with him and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land; Therefore, there arose a warm dispute concerning the matter, But not unto bloodshed.
