Passage: Alma 24:21 - Alma 24:41
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.
33 And thus they did and slew all those who had been left to protect the city, yea, all those who would not yield up their weapons of war.
34 And thus Moroni had obtained a possession of the City Mulek with a part of his army, while he marched with the remainder to meet the Lamanites when they should return from the pursuit of Teancum.
35 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did pursue Teancum until they came near the City Bountiful; And then they were met by Lehi and a small army which had been left to protect the City Bountiful.
36 And now behold, when the chief captains of the Lamanites had beheld Lehi with his army coming against them, they fled in much confusion, Lest perhaps they should not obtain the City Mulek before Lehi should overtake them, For they were wearied because of their march and the men of Lehi were fresh.
37 Now the Lamanites did not know that Moroni had been in their rear with his army, And all they feared was Lehi and his men.
38 Now Lehi was not desirous to overtake them till they should meet Moroni and his army.
39 And it came to pass that before the Lamanites had retreated far, they were surrounded by the Nephites-by the men of Moroni on one hand and the men of Lehi on the other, all of whom were fresh and full of strength; But the Lamanites were wearied because of their long march,
40 And Moroni commanded his men that they should fall upon them until they had given up their weapons of war.
41 And it came to pass that Jacob being their leader, being also a Zoramite and having an unconquerable spirit, He led the Lamanites forth to battle with exceeding fury against Moroni-
