Passage: Alma 29:15 - Alma 29:35

15 And it came to pass that this was done to fortify the land against the Lamanites.
16 And it came to pass that Moroni and Pahoron, leaving a large body of men in the Land of Zarahemla, Took their march with a large body of men toward the Land of Nephihah, Being determined to overthrow the Lamanites in that city.
17 And it came to pass that as they were marching toward the land, They took a large body of men of the Lamanites and slew many of them, And took their provisions and their weapons of war.
18 And it came to pass after they had taken them, They caused them to enter into a covenant that they would no more take up their weapons of war against the Nephites;
19 And when they had entered into this covenant, they sent them to dwell with the people of Ammon; And they were in number about four thousand which had not been slain.
20 And it came to pass that when they had sent them away, they pursued their march toward the Land of Nephihah.
21 And it came to pass that when they had come to the City Nephihah, They did pitch their tents in the Plains of Nephihah, which is near the City Nephihah.
22 Now Moroni was desirous that the Lamanites should come out to battle against them upon the plains; But the Lamanites knowing of their exceeding great courage and beholding the greatness of their numbers, Therefore, they durst not come out against them; Therefore, they did not come to battle in that day.
23 And when the night came, Moroni went forth in the darkness of the night and came upon the top of the wall to spy out in what part of the city the Lamanites did camp with their army.
24 And it came to pass that they were on the east by the entrance, And they were all asleep.
25 And now Moroni returned to his army and caused that they should prepare in haste strong cords and ladders to be let down from the top of the wall into the inner part of the wall.
26 And it came to pass that Moroni caused that his men should march forth and come up upon the top of the wall, And let themselves down into that part of the city- yea, even on the west-where the Lamanites did not camp with their armies.
27 And it came to pass that they were all let down into the city by night, by the means of their strong cords and their ladders; Thus when the morning came, they were all within the walls of the city.
28 And now when the Lamanites awoke and saw that the armies of Moroni were within the walls, They were affrightened exceedingly, insomuch that they did flee out by the pass.
29 And now when Moroni saw that they were fleeing before him, He did cause that his men should march forth against them and slew many and surrounded many others and took them prisoners; And the remainder of them fled into the Land of Moroni, which was in the borders by the seashore.
30 Thus had Moroni and Pahoron obtained the possession of the City of Nephihah without the loss of one soul; And there were many of the Lamanites which were slain.
31 Now it came to pass that as many of the Lamanites that were prisoners were desirous to join the people of Ammon and become a free people.
32 And it came to pass that as many as were desirous, unto them it was granted, according to their desires; Therefore, all the prisoners of the Lamanites did join the people of Ammon, And did begin to labor exceedingly, tilling the ground, raising all manner of grain and flocks and herds of every kind;
33 And thus were the Nephites relieved from a great burden, Yea, insomuch that they were relieved from all the prisoners of the Lamanites.
34 Now it came to pass that Moroni- After he had obtained possession of the City of Nephihah, Having taken many prisoners, which did reduce the armies of the Lamanites exceedingly, And having retained many of the Nephites which had been taken prisoners, which did strengthen the army of Moroni exceedingly- Therefore, Moroni went forth from the Land of Nephihah to the Land of Lehi.
35 And it came to pass that when the Lamanites saw that Moroni was a coming against them, They were again frightened and fled before the army of Moroni.
