Passage: Alma 23:33 - Alma 24:9
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.
1 And now it came to pass in the twenty and sixth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, Behold, when the Lamanites awoke on the first morning of the first month, Behold, they found Amalickiah was dead in his own tent; And they also saw that Teancum was ready to give them battle on that day;
2 And now when the Lamanites saw this, they were affrighted, And they abandoned their design in marching into the Land Northward and retreated with all their army into the City of Mulek and sought protection in their fortifications.
3 And it came to pass that the brother of Amalickiah was appointed king over the people, And his name was Ammaron; Thus King Ammaron, the brother of King Amalickiah, was appointed to reign in his stead.
4 And it came to pass that he did command that his people should maintain those cities which they had taken by the shedding of blood; For they had not taken any cities, save they had lost much blood.
5 And now Teancum saw that the Lamanites were determined to maintain those cities which they had taken and those parts of the land which they had obtained possession of;
6 And also seeing the enormity of their number, Teancum thought it was not expedient that he should attempt to attack them in their forts; But he kept his men round about as if making preparations for war,
7 Yea, and truly he was preparing to defend himself against them by casting up walls round about and preparing places of resort.
8 And it came to pass that he kept thus preparing for war until Moroni had sent a large number of men to strengthen his army.
9 And Moroni also sent orders unto him that he should retain all the prisoners which fell into his hands- For as the Lamanites had taken many prisoners, that he should retain all the prisoners of the Lamanites as a ransom for those which the Lamanites had taken.
