Passage: Alma 26:167 - Alma 27:17

167 And they are strict to remember the Lord their God from day to day; Yea, they do observe to keep His statutes and His judgments and His commandments continually; And their faith is strong in the prophecies concerning that which is to come.
168 "And now my beloved brother Moroni, that the Lord our God who hath redeemed us and made us free may keep you continually in His presence,
169 Yea, and that He may favor this people, Even that ye may have success in obtaining the possession of all that which the Lamanites hath taken from us, which was for our support.
170 "And now behold, I close mine epistle; I am Helaman, the son of Alma."

Alma 27
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, after Moroni had received and had read Helaman's epistle, He was exceedingly rejoiced because of the welfare, yea, the exceeding success which Helaman had had in obtaining those lands which were lost;
2 Yea, and he did make it known unto all his people in all the land round about in that part where he was, that they might rejoice also.
3 And it came to pass that he immediately sent an epistle to Pahoron, Desiring that he should cause men to be gathered together to strengthen Helaman, or the armies of Helaman, Insomuch that he might with ease maintain that part of the land which he had been so miraculously prospered in retaining.
4 And it came to pass when Moroni had sent this epistle to the Land of Zarahemla, He began again to lay a plan that he might obtain the remainder of those possessions and cities which the Lamanites had taken from them.
5 And it came to pass that while Moroni was thus making preparations to go against the Lamanites to battle, Behold, the people of Nephihah which were gathered together from the City of Moroni and the City of Lehi and the City of Morionton were attacked by the Lamanites.
6 Yea, even those which had been compelled to flee from the Land of Manti and from the land round about had come over and joined the Lamanites in this part of the land;
7 And thus being exceeding numerous, yea, and receiving strength from day to day, By the command of Ammaron they came forth against the people of Nephihah, And they did begin to slay them with an exceeding great slaughter.
8 And their armies were so numerous that the remainder of the people of Nephihah were obliged to flee before them; And they came even and joined the army of Moroni.
9 And now as Moroni had supposed that there should be men sent to the City of Nephihah to the assistance of the people to maintain that city, And knowing that it was easier to keep the city from falling into the hands of the Lamanites than to retake it from them, He supposed that they would easily maintain that city;
10 Therefore, he retained all his force to maintain those places which he had recovered.
11 And now when Moroni saw that the City of Nephihah was lost, He was exceeding sorrowful and began to doubt, because of the wickedness of the people, whether they should not fall into the hands of their brethren;
12 Now this was the case with all his chief captains that doubted and marveled also because of the wickedness of the people, And this because of the success of the Lamanites over them.
13 And it came to pass that Moroni was angry with the government because of their indifference concerning the freedom of their country.
14 And it came to pass that he wrote again to the governor of the land, which was Pahoron, And these are the words which he wrote, saying: "Behold, I direct mine epistle to Pahoron, in the City of Zarahemla, which is the chief judge and the governor over the land, And also to all those who hath been chosen by this people to govern and manage the affairs of this war;
15 For behold, I have somewhat to say unto them by the way of condemnation. "For behold, ye yourselves know that ye have been appointed to gather together men, And arm them with swords and with scimitars and all manner of weapons of war of every kind, And send forth against the Lamanites in whatsoever parts they should come into our land.
16 "And now behold, I say unto you that myself and also my men and also Helaman and his men have suffered exceeding great sufferings- Yea, even hunger, thirst and fatigue and all manner of afflictions of every kind.
17 "But behold, were this all we had suffered, we would not murmur nor complain; But behold, great has been the slaughter among our people-
