Passage: Alma 26:113 - Alma 26:133
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.
128 "But it came to pass that we did receive food which was guarded to us by an army of two thousand men, to our assistance;
129 And this is all the assistance which we did receive, to defend ourselves and our country from falling into the hands of our enemies, yea, to contend with an enemy which was innumerable.
130 "And now the cause of these our embarrassments, or the cause why they did not send more strength unto us, we knew not; Therefore, we were grieved, and also filled with fear, lest by any means the judgments of God should come upon our land to our overthrow and utter destruction;
131 Therefore, we did pour out our souls in prayer to God that He would strengthen us and deliver us out of the hands of our enemies, Yea, and also give us strength that we might retain our cities and our lands and our possessions for the support of our people.
132 "Yea, and it came to pass that the Lord our God did visit us with assurances that He would deliver us, Yea, insomuch that He did speak peace to our souls and did grant unto us great faith and did cause us that we should hope for our deliverance in Him;
133 And we did take courage with our small force which we had received, And were fixed with a determination to conquer our enemies and to maintain our lands and our possessions and our wives and our children and the cause of our liberty.
