Passage: Mormon 3:9 - Mormon 3:29
9 And it came to pass that my people, with their wives and their children, did now behold the armies of the Lamanites marching toward them; And with that awful fear of death which fills the breasts of all the wicked, did they await to receive them.
10 And it came to pass that they came to battle against us, And every soul was filled with terror because of the greatness of their numbers.
11 And it came to pass that they did fall upon my people with the sword, and with the bow, and with the arrow, and with the axe, and with all manner of weapons of war.
12 And it came to pass that my men were hewn down, yea, or even my ten thousand which were with me; And I fell wounded in the midst, And they passed by me, that they did not put an end to my life;
13 And when they had gone through and hewn down all my people, save it were twenty and four of us, among whom was my son Moroni,
14 And we, having survived the dead of our people, did behold on the morrow-when the Lamanites had returned unto their camps-from the top of the Hill Cumorah the ten thousand of my people which were hewn down, being led in the front by me; And we also beheld the ten thousand of my people which were led by my son Moroni.
15 And behold, the ten thousand of Gidgiddonah had fallen, and he also in the midst; And Lamah had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Gilgal had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Limhah had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Jeneum had fallen, with his ten thousand; And Cumenihah and Moronihah and Antionum and Shiblom and Shem and Josh had fallen, with their ten thousand each.
16 And it came to pass that there were ten more which did fall by the sword, with their ten thousand each; Yea, even all my people- Save it were those twenty and four which were with me, And also a few which had escaped into the South Countries, And a few which had deserted over unto the Lamanites- Had fallen;
17 And their flesh and bones and blood lay upon the face of the earth, Being left by the hands of those who slew them, to molder upon the land, and to crumble, and to return to their mother earth.
18 And my soul was rent with anguish because of the slain of my people, And I cried: "O ye fair ones, how could ye have departed from the ways of the Lord! O ye fair ones, how could ye have rejected that Jesus who stood with open arms to receive you!
19 "Behold, if ye had not done this, ye would not have fallen; But behold, ye are fallen and I mourn your loss;
20 O ye fair sons and daughters, ye fathers and mothers, ye husbands and wives, ye fair ones, How is it that ye could have fallen!
21 "But behold, ye are gone and my sorrows cannot bring your return; And the day soon cometh that your mortal must put on immortality, And these bodies which are now moldering in corruption must soon become incorruptible bodies;
22 And then ye must stand before the judgment seat of Christ to be judged according to your works; And if it so be that ye are righteous, then are ye blessed with your fathers which have gone before you.
23 "O that ye had repented before that this great destruction had come upon you! But behold, ye are gone; And the Father, yea, the Eternal Father of heaven knoweth your state, And He doeth with you according to His justice and mercy."
24 And now behold, I would speak somewhat unto the remnant of this people which are spared, If it so be that God may give unto them my words, that they may know of the things of their fathers; Yea, I speak unto you, ye remnant of the house of Israel, And these are the words which I speak: Know ye that ye are of the house of Israel!
25 Know ye that ye must come unto repentance or ye cannot be saved!
26 Know ye that ye must lay down your weapons of war and delight no more in the shedding of blood and take them not again, save it be that God shall command you.
27 Know ye that ye must come to the knowledge of your fathers and repent of all your sins and iniquities and believe in Jesus Christ, That He is the Son of God and that He was slain by the Jews, And by the power of the Father He hath risen again, Whereby He hath gained the victory over the grave. And also in Him is the sting of death swallowed up;
28 And He bringeth to pass the resurrection of the dead, Whereby man must be raised to stand before His judgment seat.
29 And He hath brought to pass the redemption of the world, Whereby he that is found guiltless before Him at the judgment day hath it given unto them to dwell in the presence of God in His kingdom, To sing ceaseless praises with the choirs above unto the Father and unto the Son and unto the Holy Ghost, which is one God, in a state of happiness which hath no end.
