“They Traveled Among All the People Who Were Under the Reign of King Mosiah”

Alan C. Miner

The sons of Mosiah2 traveled "throughout all the land of Zarahemla and among all the people who were under the reign of king Mosiah" (Mosiah 27:35, my italics). Is this verse saying that there were more people of Mosiah2 than just in the general land of Zarahemla (possibly in Bountiful, etc.?), or is it just stating the same thing in two different ways? According to Mosiah 27:6 the people had become "numerous" and had begun to "scatter abroad." [Alan C. Miner, Personal Notes]
