Passage: Mormon 1:85 - Mormon 2:16
85 And these things does the Spirit manifest unto me; therefore I write unto you all.
86 And for this cause I write unto you, that ye may know that ye must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ; yea, every soul who belongs to the whole human family of Adam;
87 And ye must stand to be judged of your works, whether they be good or evil; and also that ye may believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, which ye shall have among you;
88 And also that the Jews, the covenant people of the Lord, shall have other witness besides him whom they saw and heard, that Jesus whom they slew, was the very Christ, and the very God;
89 And I would that I could persuade all ye ends of the earth to repent and prepare to stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
1 And now it came to pass that in the three hundred and sixty and third year, the Nephites did go up with their armies to battle against the Lamanites, out of the land of Desolation.
2 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites were driven back again to the land of Desolation.
3 And while they were yet weary, a fresh army of the Lamanites did come upon them; and they had a sore battle, insomuch that the Lamanites did take possession of the city Desolation, and did slay many of the Nephites, and did take many prisoners; and the remainder did flee and join the inhabitants of the city Teancum.
4 Now the city Teancum lay in the borders by the seashore; and it was also near the city Desolation.
5 And it was because the armies of the Nephites went up unto the Lamanites, that they began to be smitten; for were it not for that, the Lamanites could have had no power over them.
6 But behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is by the wicked, that the wicked are punished; for it is the wicked that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed.
7 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did make preparation to come against the city Teancum.
8 And it came to pass in the three hundred and sixty and fourth year, the Lamanites did come against the city Teancum, that they might take possession of the city Teancum also.
9 And it came to pass that they were repulsed and driven back by the Nephites.
10 And when the Nephites saw that they had driven the Lamanites, they did again boast of their own strength: and they went forth in their own might, and took possession again of the city Desolation.
11 And now all these things had been done, and there had been thousands slain on both sides, both the Nephites and the Lamanites.
12 And it came to pass that the three hundred and sixty and sixth year had passed away, and the Lamanites came again upon the Nephites to battle; and yet the Nephites repented not of the evil they had done, but persisted in their wickedness continually.
13 And it is impossible for the tongue to describe, or for man to write a perfect description of the horrible scene of the blood and carnage which was among the people; both of the Nephites and of the Lamanites; and every heart was hardened, so that they delighted in the shedding of blood continually.
14 And there never had been so great wickedness among all the children of Lehi, nor even among all the house of Israel, according to the words of the Lord, as was among this people.
15 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did take possession of the city Desolation, and this because their number did exceed the number of the Nephites.
16 And they did also march forward against the city Teancum, and did drive the inhabitants forth out of her, and did take many prisoners, both women and children, and did offer them up as sacrifices unto their idol gods.
