Passage: 3 Nephi 2:44 - 3 Nephi 2:64

44 And the Nephites being in one body and having so great a number and having reserved for themselves provisions and horses and cattle and flocks of every kind that they might subsist for the space of seven years,
45 In the which time they did hope to destroy the robbers from off the face of the land. And thus the eighteenth year did pass away.
46 And it came to pass that in the nineteenth year, Giddianhi found that it was expedient that he should go up to battle against the Nephites, For there was no way that they could subsist, save it were to plunder and rob and murder;
47 And they durst not spread themselves upon the face of the land insomuch that they could raise grain, lest the Nephites should come upon them and slay them;
48 Therefore, Giddianhi gave commandment unto his armies that in this year they should go up to battle against the Nephites.
49 And it came to pass that they did come up to battle, And it was in the sixth month, And behold, great and terrible was the day that they did come up to battle.
50 And they were girded about after the manner of robbers; And they had a lambskin about their loins and they were dyed in blood; And their heads were shorn and they had headplates upon them;
51 And great and terrible was the appearance of the armies of Giddianhi because of their armor and because of their being dyed in blood.
52 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites- when they saw the appearance of the army of Giddianhi-hast all fallen to the earth, And did lift their cries to the Lord their God, that He would spare them and deliver them out of the hands of their enemies.
53 And it came to pass that when the armies of Giddianhi saw this, they began to shout with a loud voice because of their joy, For they had supposed that the Nephites had fallen with fear because of the terror of their armies;
54 But in this thing they were disappointed, for the Nephites did not fear them, But they did fear their God and did supplicate Him for protection;
55 Therefore, when the armies of Giddianhi did rush upon them, they were prepared to meet them- Yea, in the strength of the Lord they did receive them. And the battle commenced in this, the sixth month;
56 And great and terrible was the battle thereof- Yea, great and terrible was the slaughter thereof, insomuch that there never was known so great a slaughter among all the people of Lehi since he left Jerusalem;
57 And notwithstanding the threatenings and the oaths which Giddianhi had made, Behold, the Nephites did beat them, insomuch that they did fall back from before them.
58 And it came to pass that Gidgiddoni commanded that his armies should pursue them as far as to the borders of the wilderness, And that they should not spare any that should fall into their hands by the way;
59 And thus they did pursue them and did slay them to the borders of the wilderness, even until they had fulfilled the commandment of Gidgiddoni.
60 And it came to pass that Giddianhi, who had stood and fought with boldness, was pursued as he fled; And being weary because of his much fighting, he was overtaken and slain; And thus was the end of Giddianhi the robber.
61 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites did return again to their place of security.
62 And it came to pass that this nineteenth year did pass away and the robbers did not come again to battle, Neither did they come in the twentieth year.
63 But in the twenty and first year they did not come up to battle, But they came up on all sides to lay siege round about the people of Nephi;
64 For they did suppose that if they should cut off the people of Nephi from their lands and should hem them in on every side, And if they should cut them off from all their outward privileges, That they could cause them to yield themselves according to their wishes.
