Passage: Alma 23:24 - Alma 23:44

24 And the remainder of those dissenters, rather than to be smote down to the earth by the sword, Yielded to the standard of liberty and were compelled to hoist the title of liberty upon their towers and in their cities and to take up arms in defense of their country.
25 And thus Moroni put an end to those Kingmen, that there were not any known by the appellation of Kingmen; And thus he put an end to the stubbornness and the pride of those people which professed the blood of nobility;
26 But they were brought down to humble themselves, like unto their brethren, and to fight valiantly for their freedom from bondage.
27 Behold, it came to pass that while Moroni was thus breaking down the wars and contentions among his own people, And subjecting them to peace and civilization, And making regulations to prepare for war against the Lamanites, Behold, the Lamanites had come into the Land of Moroni, which was in the borders by the seashore.
28 And it came to pass that the Nephites were not sufficiently strong in the City of Moroni; Therefore, Amalickiah did drive them, slaying many.
29 And it came to pass that Amalickiah took possession of the city, yea, possession of all their fortifications.
30 And those which fled out of the City of Moroni came to the City of Nephihah; And also the people of the City of Lehi gathered themselves together and made preparations and were ready to receive the Lamanites to battle.
31 But it came to pass that Amalickiah would not suffer the Lamanites to go against the City of Nephihah to battle, but kept them down by the seashore, leaving men in every city to maintain and defend it.
32 And thus he went on, Taking possession of many cities- the City of Nephihah, and the City of Lehi, and the City of Morionton, and the City of Omner, and the City of Gid, and the City of Mulek- All of which were on the east borders by the seashore.
33 And thus had the Lamanites obtained, by the cunning of Amalickiah, so many cities by their numberless hosts, All of which were strongly fortified after the manner of the fortifications of Moroni, All of which afforded strongholds for the Lamanites.
34 And it came to pass that they marched to the borders of the Land Bountiful, driving the Nephites before them and slaying many.
35 But it came to pass that they were met by Teancum, who had slain Morionton and had headed his people in his flight.
36 And it came to pass that he headed Amalickiah also, as he was marching forth with his numerous army that he might take possession of the Land Bountiful, and also the Land Northward;
37 But behold, he met with a disappointment by being repulsed by Teancum and his men, for they were great warriors; For every man of Teancum did exceed the Lamanites in their strength and in their skill of war, Insomuch that they did gain advantage over the Lamanites.
38 And it came to pass that they did harass them, Insomuch that they did slay them, even until it was dark.
39 And it came to pass that Teancum and his men did pitch their tents in the borders of the Land Bountiful; And Amalickiah did pitch his tents in the borders on the beach by the seashore. And after this manner were they driven.
40 And it came to pass that when the night had come, Teancum and his servant stole forth and went out by night and went into the camp of Amalickiah; And behold, sleep had overpowered them because of their much fatigue which was caused by the labors and heat of the day.
41 And it came to pass that Teancum stole privily into the tent of the king and put a javelin to his heart; And he did cause the death of the king immediately, that he did not awake his servants.
42 And he returned again privily to his own camp, And behold, his men were asleep; And he awoke them and told them all the things that he had done.
43 And he caused that his armies should stand in readiness, lest the Lamanites had awoke and should come upon them.
44 And thus ended the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi. And thus ended the days of Amalickiah.
