Passage: Alma 14:47 - Alma 14:57

47 And thus we see, that they buried the weapons of peace, or they buried the weapons of war, for peace.
48 And it came to pass that their brethren the Lamanites made preparations for war, and came up to the land of Nephi for the purpose of destroying the king, and to place another in his stead, and also of destroying the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi out of the land.
49 Now when the people saw that they were coming against them, they went out to meet them, and prostrated themselves before them to the earth, and began to call on the name of the Lord;

55 And there was not a wicked man slain among them; but there were more than a thousand brought to the knowledge of the truth; thus we see that the Lord worketh in many ways to the salvation of his people.
56 Now the greatest number of those of the Lamanites who slew so many of their brethren, were Amalekites and Amulonites, the greatest number of whom were after the order of the Nehors.
