Mosiah 22:5–8

From Section: The Great Escape

From Page: Recolonization of the Land of Nephi

And Gideon said unto him:

“Behold the back pass, through the back wall, on the back side of the city. The Lamanites, or the guards of the Lamanites, by night are drunken; therefore let us send a proclamation among all this people that they gather together their flocks and herds, that they may drive them into the wilderness by night.

“And I will go according to thy command and pay the last tribute of wine to the Lamanites, and they will be drunken; and we will pass through the secret pass on the left of their camp when they are drunken and asleep.

“Thus we will depart with our women and our children, our flocks, and our herds into the wilderness; and we will travel around the land of Shilom.”
