63 And thus ended the twenty and ninth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
Alma 26 1 And now it came to pass in the commencement of the thirtieth year of the reign of the judges, in the second day on the first month, Moroni received an epistle from Helaman stating the affairs of the people in that quarter of the land. 2 And these are the words which he wrote, saying: "My dearly beloved brother Moroni, as well in the Lord as in the tribulations of our warfare, Behold, my beloved brother, I have somewhat to tell you concerning our warfare in this part of the land. 3 "Behold, two thousand of the sons of those men which Ammon brought down out of the Land of Nephi- 4 Now ye have known that these were a descendant of Laman which was the eldest son of our father Lehi- 5 Now I need not rehearse unto you concerning their traditions or their unbelief, for thou knowest concerning all these things- Therefore, it sufficeth me that I tell you that two thousand of these young men hath taken their weapons of war and would that I should be their leader; And we have come forth to defend our country. 6 "And now ye also know concerning the covenant which their fathers made that they would not take up their weapons of war against their brethren to shed blood; 7 But in the twenty and sixth year, when they saw our afflictions and our tribulations for them, they were about to break the covenant which they had made and take up their weapons of war in our defense; 8 But I would not suffer them that they should break this covenant which they had made, Supposing that God would strengthen us insomuch that we should not suffer more because of the fulfilling the oath which they had taken. 9 "But behold, here is one thing in which we may have great joy- 10 For behold, in the twenty and sixth year, I, Helaman, did march at the head of these two thousand young men to the City of Judeah, to assist Antipus whom ye had appointed a leader over the people of that part of the land; 11 And I did join my two thousand sons-for they are worthy to be called sons-to the army of Antipus, in the which strength Antipus did rejoice exceedingly; For behold, his army had been reduced by the Lamanites because of the numerosity of their forces, having slain a vast number of our men, for which cause we have to mourn; 12 Nevertheless, we may console ourselves in this point- that they have died in the cause of their country and of their God, yea, and they are happy. 13 "And the Lamanites had also retained many prisoners, all of whom are chief captains, for none other have they spared alive; 14 And we suppose that they are now at this time in the Land of Nephi; It is so, if they are not slain. 15 "And now these are the cities which the Lamanites have obtained possession by the shedding of the blood of so many of our valiant men- The Land of Manti, or the City of Manti, and the City of Zeezrom, and the City of Cumeni, and the City of Antiparah- 16 And these are the cities which they possessed when I arrived at the City of Judeah. "And I found Antipus and his men toiling with their mights to fortify the city; 17 Yea, and they were depressed in body as well as in spirit, For they had fought valiantly by day and toiled by night to maintain their cities; And thus they had suffered great afflictions of every kind. 18 "And now they were determined to conquer in this place, or die; Therefore, you may well suppose that this little force which I brought with me, yea, those sons of mine, gave them great hopes and much joy. 19 "And now it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that Antipus had received a greater strength to his army, They were compelled, by the orders of Ammaron, to not come against the City of Judeah, or against us to battle. 20 "And thus were we favored of the Lord, For had they come upon us in this our weakness, they might have perhaps destroyed our little army; But thus were we favored-

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
