Abish and the Onlookers
Mosiah’s Sons’ Mission to the Lamanites
With the entire royal household prostrate on the ground, Abish runs out and tells everyone around.
A crowd gathers in the king’s house and the sees everyone lying on the ground.
Some onlookers speculate that some evil had possessed everyone because Ammon had been permitted to stay while others say it is punishment for the execution orders previously issued by the king.
The brother of the man killed by Ammon was among them. He sees Ammon, and seeking revenge, draws his sword, and suddenly, to the fear of all the onlookers, he drops dead before he is able to strike.
The people agree that Ammon was sent by the Great Spirit.
Others disagree, claiming that Ammon is a Nephite monster, sent to torment the Lamanites because of their evils.
