Passage: Alma 27:55 - Alma 28:16
55 "And now behold, I, Moroni, am constrained, according to the covenant which I have made, to keep the commandments of my God; Therefore, I would that ye should adhere to the word of God and send speedily unto me of your provisions and of your men, and also to Helaman;
56 And behold, if ye will not do this, I come unto you speedily; For behold, God will not suffer that we should perish with hunger; Therefore, He will give unto us of your food, even if it must be by the sword;
57 Now see that ye fulfill the word of God.
58 "Behold, I am Moroni, your chief captain; I seek not for power, but to pull it down;
59 I seek not for honor of the world, but for the glory of my God and the freedom and welfare of my country; And thus I close mine epistle."
1 Behold, now it came to pass that soon after Moroni had sent his epistle unto the chief governor, He received an epistle from Pahoron, the chief governor.
2 And these are the words which he received: "I, Pahoron, which art the chief governor of this land, do send these words unto Moroni, the chief captain over the army. "Behold I say unto you, Moroni, that I do not joy in your great afflictions, yea, it grieves my soul.
3 "But behold, there are those who do joy in your afflictions, Yea, insomuch that they have risen up in rebellion against me, and also those of my people which are Freemen. "Yea, and those which have risen up are exceeding numerous;
4 And it is those who have sought to take away the judgment seat from me that have been the cause of this great iniquity;
5 For they have used great flattery, And they have led away the hearts of many people, which will be the cause of sore affliction among us; They have withheld our provisions and have daunted our Freemen, that they have not come unto you.
6 "And behold, they have driven me out before them, And I have fled to the Land of Gideon with as many men as it were possible that I could get.
7 "And behold, I have sent a proclamation throughout this part of the land; And behold, they are flocking to us daily, to their arms, in the defense of their country and their freedom and to avenge our wrongs.
8 "And they have come unto us, insomuch that those which have risen up in rebellion against us are set at defiance, Yea, insomuch that they do fear us and durst not come out against us to battle.
9 "They have got possession of the Land- or the City of Zarahemla; They have appointed a king over them and he hath written unto the king of the Lamanites- In the which he hath joined an alliance with him,
10 In the which alliance, he hath agreed to maintain the City of Zarahemla, In the which maintenance, he supposeth will enable the Lamanites to conquer the remainder of the land; And he shall be placed king over this people when they shall be conquered under the Lamanites.
11 "And now, in your epistle ye hath censured me, but it mattereth not- I am not angry, but do rejoice in the greatness of your heart.
12 "I, Pahoron, do not seek for power, save only to retain my judgment seat, that I may preserve the rights and the liberty of my people;
13 My soul standeth fast in that liberty in the which God hath made us free!
14 "And now behold, we will resist wickedness, even unto bloodshed;
15 We would not shed the blood of the Lamanites, if they would stay in their own land;
16 We would not shed the blood of our brethren, if they would not rise up in rebellion and take the sword against us;
