Passage: Alma 26:82 - Alma 26:102

82 And notwithstanding the Lamanites being cut off from their support, after this manner, they were still determined to maintain the city;
83 Therefore, it became expedient that we should take those provisions and send them to Judeah and our prisoners to the Land of Zarahemla.
84 "And it came to pass that not many days had passed away before the Lamanites began to lose all hopes of succor; Therefore, they yielded up the city into our hands. "And thus we had accomplished our designs in obtaining the City Cumeni.
85 "But it came to pass that our prisoners were so numerous that, notwithstanding the enormity of our number, We were obliged to employ all our force to keep them or put them to death.
86 "For behold, they would break out in great numbers and would fight with stones and with clubs or whatsoever thing they could get into their hands, Insomuch that we did slay upwards of two thousand of them after they had surrendered themselves prisoners of war;
87 Therefore, it became expedient for us that we should put an end to their lives, Or guard them, sword in hand, down to the Land of Zarahemla;
88 And also our provisions were not any more than sufficient for our own people, Notwithstanding that which we had taken from the Lamanites.
89 "And now in those critical circumstances, it became a very serious matter to determine concerning these prisoners of war, Nevertheless, we did resolve to send them down to the Land of Zarahemla;
90 Therefore, we selected a part of our men and gave them charge over our prisoners to go down to the Land of Zarahemla. "But it came to pass that on the morrow, they did return;
91 And now behold, we did not inquire of them concerning the prisoners, For behold, the Lamanites were upon us, And they returned in season to save us from falling into their hands;
92 For behold, Ammaron had sent to their support a new supply of provisions, and also a numerous army of men;
93 And it came to pass that those men which we sent with the prisoners did arrive in season to check them as they were about to overpower us.
94 "But behold, my little band of two thousand and sixty fought most desperately, Yea, they were firm before the Lamanites and did administer death unto all those who opposed them;
95 And as the remainder of our army were about to give way before the Lamanites, Behold, these two thousand and sixty were firm and undaunted, Yea, and they did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness,
96 Yea, and even according to their faith, it was done unto them; And I did remember the words which they said unto me that their mothers had taught them.
97 "And now behold, it was these-my sons and those men which had been selected to convey the prisoners- to whom we owe this great victory, For it was they who did beat the Lamanites; Therefore, they were driven back to the City of Manti,
98 And we retained our City Cumeni and were not all destroyed by the sword; Nevertheless, we had suffered great loss.
99 "And it came to pass that after the Lamanites had fled, I immediately gave orders that my men which had been wounded should be taken from among the dead and caused that their wounds should be dressed.
100 "And it came to pass that there were two hundred out of my two thousand and sixty which had fainted because of the loss of blood;
101 Nevertheless, according to the goodness of God-and to our great astonishment, and also the joy of our whole army-there was not one soul of them which did perish, Yea, and neither was there one soul among them which had not received many wounds;
102 And now, their preservation was astonishing to our whole army, Yea, that they should be spared while there was a thousand of our brethren which were slain.
