Passage: Mormon 1:48 - Mormon 1:68

48 And it came to pass that we were driven forth until we had come northward to the land which was called Shem.
49 And it came to pass that we did fortify the City of Shem; And we did gather in our people as much as it were possible, that perhaps we might save them from destruction.
50 And it came to pass in the three hundred and forty and sixth year they began to come upon us again.
51 And it came to pass that I did speak unto my people and did urge them with great energy that they would stand boldly before the Lamanites and fight for their wives and their children and their houses and their homes;
52 And my words did arouse them somewhat to vigor, Insomuch that they did not flee from before the Lamanites, but did stand with boldness against them.
53 And it came to pass that we did contend with an army of thirty thousand against an army of fifty thousand.
54 And it came to pass that we did stand before them with such firmness that they did flee from before us.
55 And it came to pass that when they had fled, we did pursue them with our armies and did meet them again and did beat them;
56 Nevertheless, the strength of the Lord was not with us, Yea, we were left to ourselves, that the Spirit of the Lord did not abide in us, Therefore, we had become weak like unto our brethren;
57 And my heart did sorrow because of this, the great calamity of my people, because of their wickedness and their abominations;
58 But behold, we did go forth against the Lamanites and the robbers of Gaddianton until we had again taken possession of the lands of our inheritance.
59 And the three hundred and forty and ninth year had passed away.
60 And in the three hundred and fiftieth year, we made a treaty with the Lamanites and the robbers of Gaddianton, in the which we did get the lands of our inheritance divided;
61 And the Lamanites did give unto us the Land Northward, yea, even to the Narrow Passage which led into the Land Southward;
62 And we did give unto the Lamanites all the Land Southward.
63 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did not come to battle again until ten years more had passed away.
64 And behold, I had employed my people the Nephites in preparing their lands and their arms against the time of battle.
65 And it came to pass that the Lord did say unto me: "Cry unto this people: 'Repent ye! and come unto Me! and be ye baptized! and build up again My church! And ye shall be spared.'"
66 And I did cry unto this people, but it was in vain; And they did not realize that it was the Lord that had spared them and granted unto them a chance for repentance;
67 And behold, they did harden their hearts against the Lord their God.
68 And it came to pass that after this tenth year had passed away, making in the whole three hundred and sixty years from the coming of Christ, And the king of the Lamanites sent an epistle unto me which gave unto me to know that they were preparing to come again to battle against us.

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
