Passage: Alma 26:47 - Alma 26:67

47 "And it came to pass that before the dawn of the morning, behold, the Lamanites were pursuing us;
48 Now we were not sufficiently strong to contend with them; Yea, I would not suffer that my little sons should fall into their hands; Therefore, we did continue our march and we took our march into the wilderness.
49 "Now they durst not turn to the right nor to the left, lest they should be surrounded; Neither would I turn to the right or to the left, lest they should overtake me and we could not stand against them, but be slain, And they would make their escape. "And thus we did flee all that day into the wilderness, even until it was dark.
50 "And it came to pass that again when the light of the morning came, we saw the Lamanites upon us, And we did flee before them;
51 But it came to pass that they did not pursue us far before they halted; And it was in the morning of the third day on the seventh month.
52 "And now whether they were overtaken by Antipus, we knew not; But I said unto my men: 'Behold, we know not but they have halted for the purpose that we should come against them, that they might catch us in their snare; Therefore, what say ye, my sons? Will ye go against them to battle?'
53 "And now I say unto you, my beloved brother Moroni, that never had I seen so great courage, nay, not amongst all the Nephites;
54 For as I had ever called them my sons-for they were all of them very young-even so they said unto me: 'Father, behold, our God is with us and He will not suffer that we shall fall, Then let us go forth;
55 We would not slay our brethren if they would let us alone; Therefore, let us go lest they should overpower the army of Antipus.'
56 "Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; And they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; Yea, they had been taught by their mothers that if they did not doubt, that God would deliver them;
57 And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: 'We do not doubt our mothers knew.'
58 "And it came to pass that I did return with my two thou- sand against these Lamanites which had pursued us.
59 "And now behold, the armies of Antipus had overtaken them and a terrible battle had commenced;
60 The army of Antipus, being weary because of their long march in so short a space of time, were about to fall into the hands of the Lamanites; And had I not returned with my two thousand, they would have obtained their purpose,
61 For Antipus had fallen by the sword, and many of his leaders because of their weariness which was occasioned by the speed of their march; Therefore, the men of Antipus, being confused because of the fall of their leaders, began to give way before the Lamanites.
62 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites took courage and began to pursue them; And thus were the Lamanites pursuing them with great vigor when Helaman came upon their rear with his two thousand and began to slay them exceedingly, Insomuch that the whole army of the Lamanites halted and turned upon Helaman.
63 "Now when the people of Antipus saw that the Lamanites had turned them about, They gathered together their men and came again upon the rear of the Lamanites.
64 "And now it came to pass that we-the people of Nephi, the people of Antipus and I with my two thousand- did surround the Lamanites and did slay them, Yea, insomuch that they were compelled to deliver up their weapons of war, and also themselves as prisoners of war.
65 "And now it came to pass that when they had surrendered themselves up unto us, Behold, I numbered those young men which had fought with me, fearing lest there were many of them slain;
66 But behold, to my great joy, there had not one soul of them fallen to the earth! Yea, and they had fought as if with the strength of God; Yea, never were men known to have fought with such miraculous strength;
67 And with such mighty power did they fall upon the Lamanites that they did frighten them; And for this cause did the Lamanites deliver themselves up as prisoners of war.
