Passage: Alma 14:27 - Alma 14:37

27 Now there was not one soul among all the people who had been converted unto the Lord, that would take up arms against their brethren;
28 Nay, they would not even make any preparations for war, yea, and also their king commanded them that they should not.
29 Now these are the words which he said unto the people concerning the matter: I thank my God, my beloved people, that our great God has in goodness sent these our brethren, the Nephites, unto us to preach unto us, and to convince us of the traditions of our wicked fathers.

34 Now my best beloved brethren, since God hath taken away our stains, and our swords have become bright, then let us stain our swords no more with the blood of our brethren:
35 Behold, I say unto you, Nay, let us retain our swords, that they be not stained with the blood of our brethren:
36 For perhaps if we should stain our swords again, they can no more be washed bright through the blood of the Son of our great God, which shall be shed for the atonement of our sins.
37 And the great God has had mercy on us, and made these things known unto us, that we might not perish:
