Passage: Alma 8:20 - Alma 8:30

20 That they might be judged according to the law, and that they might be slain or cast into prison, according to the crime which they could make appear, or witness against them.
21 Now it was those men who sought to destroy them, who were lawyers, who were hired or appointed by the people to administer the law at their times of trials, or at the trials of the crimes of the people, before the Judges.
22 Now these lawyers were learned in all the arts and cunning of the people; and this was to enable them that they might be skillful in their profession.
23 And it came to pass that they began to question Amulek, that thereby they might make him cross his words, or contradict the words which he should speak.
24 Now they knew not that Amulek could know of their designs.
25 But it came to pass as they began to question him, he perceived their thoughts, and he said unto them, O ye wicked and perverse generation; ye lawyers and hypocrites; for ye are laying the foundations of the devil;
26 For ye are laying traps and snares to catch the holy ones of God; ye are laying plans to pervert the ways of the righteous, and to bring down the wrath of God upon your heads, even to the utter destruction of this people;
27 Yea, well did Mosiah say, who was our last king, when he was about to deliver up the kingdom, having no one to confer it upon, causing that this people should be governed by their own voices;
28 Yea, well did he say, that if the time should come that the voice of this people should choose iniquity; that is, if the time should come that this people should fall into transgression, they would be ripe for destruction.
29 And now I say unto you, that well doth the Lord judge of your iniquities; well doth he cry unto this people, by the voice of his angels, Repent ye, repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
30 Yea, well doth he cry, by the voice of his angels, that I will come down among my people, with equity and justice in my hands.
