Passage: Alma 24:12 - Alma 24:32
12 That perhaps he might take again, by stratagem or some other way, those cities which had been taken out of their hands, And that he also would fortify and strengthen the cities round about which had not fallen into the hands of the Lamanites.
13 And he also said unto him: "I would come unto you, But behold, the Lamanites are upon us in the borders of the land by the West Sea, And behold, I go against them; Therefore, I cannot come unto you."
14 Now the king, Ammaron, had departed out of the Land of Zarahemla, And had made known unto the queen concerning the death of his brother, And had gathered together a large number of men, And had marched forth against the Nephites on the borders by the West Sea;
15 And thus he was endeavoring to harass the Nephites and to draw away a part of their forces to that part of the land, While he had commanded those which he had left to possess the cities which he had taken, that they should also harass the Nephites on the borders by the East Sea, And should take possession of their lands as much as it were in their power, according to the power of their armies.
16 And thus were the Nephites in those dangerous circumstances in the ending of the twentieth and sixth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
17 But behold, it came to pass in the twentieth and seventh year of the reign of the judges that Teancum- By the command of Moroni who had established armies to protect the south and the west borders of the land, had begun his march toward the Land of Bountiful, that he might assist Teancum with his men in retaking the cities which they had lost-
18 And it came to pass that Teancum had received orders to make an attack upon the City of Mulek and retake it if it were possible.
19 And it came to pass that Teancum made preparations to make an attack upon the City of Mulek and march forth with his army against the Lamanites; But he saw that it was impossible that he could overpower them while they were in their fortifications;
20 Therefore, he abandoned his designs and returned again to the City Bountiful to wait for the coming of Moroni, that he might receive strength to his army.
21 And it came to pass that Moroni did arrive with his army to the Land of Bountiful in the latter end of the twenty and seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
22 And in the commencement of the twenty and eighth year, Moroni and Teancum and many of the chief captains held a council of war what they should do to cause the Lamanites to come out against them to battle,
23 Or that they might by some means flatter them out of their strongholds, that they might gain advantage over them and take again the City of Mulek.
24 And it came to pass that they sent embassies to the armies of the Lamanites, which protected the City of Mulek, to their leader whose name was Jacob, desiring him that he would come out with his armies to meet them upon the plains between the two cities.
25 But behold, Jacob, which was a Zoramite, would not come out with his army to meet them upon the plains.
26 And it came to pass that Moroni having no hopes of meeting them upon fair grounds, Therefore, he resolved upon a plan that he might decoy the Lamanites out of their strongholds;
27 Therefore, he caused that Teancum should take a small number of men and march down near the seashore, And Moroni and his army, by night, marched into the wilderness on the west of the City Mulek;
28 And thus on the morrow, when the guards of the Lamanites had discovered Teancum, they ran and told it unto Jacob their leader.
29 And it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites did march forth against Teancum, supposing by their numbers to overpower Teancum because of the smallness of his numbers;
30 And as Teancum saw the armies of the Lamanites coming out against him, he began to retreat down by the seashore, northward.
31 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that he began to flee, they took courage and pursued them with vigor;
32 And while Teancum was thus leading away the Lamanites which were pursuing them in vain, Behold, Moroni commanded that a part of his army which were with him should march forth into the city and take possession of it.
