Passage: Alma 1:116 - Alma 2:6
116 And again I say, He that departeth from thee, shall no more be called thy seed; and I will bless thee, etc., and whomsoever shall be called thy seed, henceforth and for ever: and these were the promises of the Lord unto Nephi, and to his seed.
117 Now the Amlicites knew not that they were fulfilling the words of God, when they began to mark themselves in their foreheads;
118 Nevertheless they had come out in open rebellion against God; therefore it was expedient that the curse should fall upon them.
119 Now I would that ye should see that they brought upon themselves the curse;
120 And even so doth every man that is cursed, bring upon himself his own condemnation.
121 Now it came to pass that not many days after the battle which was fought in the land of Zarahemla, by the Lamanites and the Amlicites, that there was another army of the Lamanites came in upon the people of Nephi in the same place, where the first army met the Amlicites.
122 And it came to pass that there was an army sent to drive them out of their land.
123 Now Alma himself being afflicted with a wound, did not go up to battle at this time against the Lamanites; but he sent up a numerous army against them;
124 And they went up and slew many of the Lamanites, and drove the remainder of them out of the borders of their land;
125 And then they returned again, and began to establish peace in the land, being troubled no more for a time with their enemies.
126 Now all these things were done, yea, all these wars and contentions were commenced and ended, in the fifth year of the reign of the Judges;
127 And in one year were thousands and tens of thousands of souls sent to the eternal world,
128 That they might reap their rewards according to their works, whether they were good or whether they were bad, to reap eternal happiness or eternal misery, according to the spirit which they listed to obey, whether it be a good spirit or a bad one;
129 For every man receiveth wages of him whom he listeth to obey, and this according to the words of the spirit of prophecy; therefore let it be according to the truth.
130 And thus ended the fifth year of the reign of the Judges.
1 Now it came to pass in the sixth year of the reign of the Judges over the people of Nephi, there were no contentions nor wars in the land of Zarahemla;
2 But the people were afflicted, yea, greatly afflicted for the loss of their brethren, and also for the loss of their flocks and herds, and also for the loss of their fields of grain, which were trodden under foot and destroyed by the Lamanites,
3 And so great were their afflictions, that every soul had cause to mourn; and they believed that it was the judgments of God sent upon them, because of their wickedness and their abominations; therefore they were awakened to a remembrance of their duty.
4 And they began to establish the church more fully; yea, and many were baptized in the waters of Sidon, and were joined to the church of God;
5 Yea, they were baptized by the hand of Alma, who had been consecrated the high priest over the people of the church, by the hand of his father Alma.
6 And it came to pass in the seventh year of the reign of the Judges, there were about three thousand five hundred souls that united themselves to the church of God, and were baptized.
