135 "And it came to pass on the morrow that when the Lamanites saw that we were in the borders by the wilderness, which was near the city, That they sent out their spies round about us that they might discover the number and the strength of our army. 136 "And it came to pass that when they saw that we were not strong, according to our numbers, And fearing that we should cut them off from their support, except they should come out to battle against us and kill us, 137 And also supposing that they could easily destroy us with their numerous hosts, Therefore, they began to make preparations to come out against us to battle. 138 "And when we saw that they were making preparations to come out against us, Behold, I caused that Gid, with a small number of men, should secrete himself in the wilderness, And also that Teomner should with a small number of men secrete themselves also in the wilderness. 139 "Now Gid and his men were on the right and the others on the left; And when they had thus secreted themselves, behold, I remained with the remainder of my army in that same place where we had first pitched our tents, Against the time that the Lamanites should come out to battle. 140 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites did come out with their numerous army against us; 141 And when they had come and were about to fall upon us with the sword, I caused that my men, those which were with me, should retreat into the wilderness. 142 "And it came to pass that the Lamanites did follow after us with great speed, For they were exceedingly desirous to overtake us that they might slay us; Therefore, they did follow us into the wilderness; 143 And we did pass by in the midst of Gid and Teomner insomuch that they were not discovered by the Lamanites. 144 "And it came to pass that when the Lamanites had passed by, or when the army had passed by, Gid and Teomner did rise up from their secret places and did cut off the spies of the Lamanites, that they should not return to the city. 145 "And it came to pass that when they had cut them off, They ran to the city and fell upon the guards which were left to guard the city, insomuch that they did destroy them and did take possession of the city. 146 "Now this was done because the Lamanites did suffer their whole army, save a few guards only, to be led away into the wilderness. 147 "And it came to pass that Gid and Teomner, by this means, had obtained possession of their stronghold. 148 "And it came to pass that we took our course after having traveled much in the wilderness toward the Land of Zarahemla; 149 And when the Lamanites saw that they were marching toward the Land of Zarahemla, They were exceeding fraid, lest there was a plan laid to lead them on to destruction; Therefore, they began to retreat into the wilderness again, yea, even back by the same way which they had come. 150 "And behold, it was night and they did pitch their tents; For the chief captains of the Lamanites supposing that the Nephites were weary because of their march, And supposing that they had driven their whole army, Therefore, they took no thought concerning the City of Manti. 151 "Now it came to pass that when it was night, that I caused that my men should not sleep, But that they should march forward by another way toward the Land of Manti; 152 And because of this our march in the nighttime, behold, on the morrow, we were beyond the Lamanites, insomuch that we did arrive before them to the City of Manti. 153 "And thus it came to pass that by this stratagem, we did take possession of the City of Manti without the shedding of blood. 154 "And it came to pass that when the armies of the Lamanites did arrive near the city and saw that we were prepared to meet them, They were astonished exceedingly and struck with great fear, insomuch that they did flee into the wilderness. 155 "Yea, and it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites did flee out of all this quarter of the land;
