Passage: Helaman 3:130 - Helaman 4:18

130 And it came to pass that thus he did go forth in the Spirit from multitude to multitude, declaring the word of God, Even until he had declared it unto them all, or sent it forth among all the people.
131 And it came to pass that they would not hearken unto his words; And there began to be contentions, insomuch that they were divided against themselves and began to slay one another with the sword.
132 And thus ended the seventy and first year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.

Helaman 4
1 And now it came to pass in the seventy and second year of the reign of the judges that the contentions did increase, Insomuch that there were wars throughout all the land, among all the people of Nephi;
2 And it was this secret band of robbers which did carry on this work of destruction and wickedness;
3 And this war did last all that year; And in the seventy and third year it did also last.
4 And it came to pass that in this year, Nephi did cry unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, do not suffer that this people shall be destroyed by the sword; But O Lord, rather let there be a famine in the land to stir them up in remembrance of the Lord their God, And perhaps they will repent and turn unto Thee."
5 And so it was done according to the words of Nephi; And there was a great famine upon the land among all the people of Nephi.
6 And thus, in the seventy and fourth year the famine did continue, And the work of destruction did cease by the sword, but became sore by famine.
7 And this work of destruction did also continue in the seventy and fifth year;
8 For the earth was smitten that it was dry and did not yield forth grain in the season of grain; And the whole earth was smitten, even among the Lamanites, as well as among the Nephites, So that they were smitten that they did perish by thousands in the more wicked parts of the land.
9 And it came to pass that the people saw that they were about to perish by famine, And they began to remember the Lord their God; And they began to remember the words of Nephi.
10 And the people began to plead with their chief judges and their leaders, that they would say unto Nephi: "Behold, we know that thou art a man of God; And therefore, cry unto the Lord our God that He turn away from us this famine, lest all the words which thou hast spoken concerning our destruction be fulfilled."
11 And it came to pass that the judges did say unto Nephi according to the words which had been desired.
12 And it came to pass that when Nephi saw that the people had repented and did humble themselves in sackcloth, He cried again unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, behold, this people repenteth;
13 And they have swept away the band of Gaddianton from amongst them, Insomuch that they have become extinct and they have concealed their secret plans in the earth.
14 "Now, O Lord, because of this, their humility, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger, And let Thine anger be appeased in the destruction of those wicked men whom Thou hast already destroyed?
15 "O Lord, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger- yea, Thy fierce anger- And cause that this famine may cease in this land?
16 "O Lord, wilt Thou hearken unto me and cause that it may be done according to my words, And send forth rain upon the face of the earth, that she may bring forth her fruit and her grain in the season of grain?
17 "O Lord, Thou didst hearken unto my words when I said, 'Let there be a famine that the pestilence of the sword might cease'; And I know that Thou wilt, even at this time, hearken unto my words, For Thou saidst that if this people repent, 'I will spare them.'
18 "Yea, O Lord, And Thou seest that they have repented because of the famine and the pestilence and destruction which have come unto them.
