Passage: Alma 27:9 - Alma 27:29
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-
18 Yea, thousands have fallen by the sword, While it might have otherwise been if ye had rendered unto our armies sufficient strength and succor for them;
19 Yea, great has been your neglect toward us. "And now behold, we desire to know the cause of this exceeding great neglect; Yea, we desire to know the cause of your thoughtless state.
20 "Can you think to sit upon your thrones in a state of thoughtless stupor, while your enemies are spreading the work of death around you?
21 Yea, while they are murdering thousands of your brethren? Yea, even they which have looked up to you for protection-yea, have placed you in a situation that ye might have succored them?
22 "Yea, ye might have sent armies unto them to have strengthened them and have saved thousands of them from falling by the sword!
23 "But behold, this is not all- Ye have withheld your provisions from them, Insomuch that many have fought and bled out their lives because of their great desires which they had for the welfare of this people;
24 Yea, and this they have done when they were about to perish with hunger because of your exceeding great neglect toward them.
25 "And now, my beloved brethren-for ye had ought to be beloved- Yea, and ye had ought to have stirred yourselves more diligently for the welfare and the freedom of this people;
26 But behold, ye have neglected them insomuch that the blood of thousands shall come upon your heads for vengeance; Yea, for known unto God were all their cries and all their sufferings.
27 "Behold, could ye suppose that ye could sit upon your thrones, And because of the exceeding goodness of God, ye could do nothing and He would deliver you? Behold, if ye have supposed this, ye have supposed in vain.
28 "Do ye suppose that, because so many of your brethren have been killed because of their wickedness? I say unto you, if ye have supposed this, ye have supposed in vain; For I say unto you, that there are many which have fallen by the sword.
29 "And behold, it is to your condemnation; For the Lord suffereth the righteous to be slain that His justice and judgment may come upon the wicked; Therefore, ye need not suppose that the righteous are lost because they are slain; But behold, they do enter into the rest of the Lord their God.
