strtoupper('“W')hich Caused the Earth to Shake Upon Which They Stood”

Nothing could have been more shocking to these five notorious apostates than to have an angel of God suddenly appear in glory before them and denounce them with a voice that was so strong it knocked them to the ground. In verse 8 it even describes Alma as having being idolatrous. The angel specifically addressed Alma and told him to stand up. A portrayal of the appearance of the angel before the five young apostates may be found in volume two of Treasures from the Book of Mormon on page 139.
