Passage: Alma 26:107 - Alma 26:127

107 "And now, these are the words which Gid said unto me: 'Behold, we did start to go down to the Land of Zarahemla with our prisoners;
108 And it came to pass that we did meet the spies of our armies which had been sent out to watch the camp of the Lamanites,
109 And they cried unto us, saying: "Behold, the armies of the Lamanites are a marching toward the City of Cumeni; And behold, they will fall upon them and will destroy our people!"
110 'And it came to pass that our prisoners did hear their cries, which caused them to take courage; And they did raise up in rebellion against us.
111 'And it came to pass because of their rebellion, we did cause that our swords should come upon them.
112 'And it came to pass that they did, in a body, run upon our swords, in the which the greater number of them were slain, And the remainder of them broke through and fled from us.
113 'And behold, when they had fled and we could not overtake them, we took our march with speed toward the City Cumeni; And behold, we did arrive in time that we might assist our brethren in preserving the city.
114 'And behold, we are again delivered out of the hands of our enemies;
115 And blessed is the name of our God! For behold, it is He that hath delivered us, yea, that hath done this great thing for us.'
116 "Now it came to pass that when I, Helaman, had heard these words of Gid, I was filled with exceeding joy, Because of the goodness of God in preserving us that we might not all perish;
117 Yea, and I trust that the souls of them which have been slain have entered into the rest of their God.
118 "And behold, now it came to pass that our next object was to obtain the City of Manti; But behold, there was no way that we could lead them out of the city by our small bands,
119 For behold, they remembered that which we had hitherto done; Therefore, we could not decoy them away from their strongholds;
120 And they were so exceeding more numerous than was our army that we durst not go forth and attack them in their strongholds.
121 "Yea, and it became expedient that we should employ our men to the maintaining those parts of the land of the which we had retained of our possessions;
122 Therefore, it became expedient that we should wait, that we might receive more strength from the Land of Zarahemla, and also a new supply of provisions.
123 "And it came to pass that I thus did send an embassy to the great governor of our land, to acquaint him concerning the affairs of our people.
124 "And it came to pass that we did wait to receive provisions and strength from the Land of Zarahemla;
125 But behold, this did not profit us but little, For the Lamanites were also receiving great strength from day to day, and also many provisions. "And thus were our circumstances at this period of time.
126 "And the Lamanites were sallying forth against us from time to time, resolving by stratagem to destroy us; Nevertheless, we could not come to battle with them, because of their retreats and their strongholds.
127 "And it came to pass that we did wait in these difficult circumstances for the space of many months, even until we were about to perish for the want of food.
