It is interesting that when Nehor was carried to the top of the hill Manti and saw that he was about to be executed, his arrogance suddenly collapsed. Confronted with the fact that he must now face his God and his hour of judgment, Nehor confessed. He confessed that everything that he had taught was a lie. The scripture says Nehor suffered an ignominious death. Deuteronomy 21:22 indicates that this would be by hanging.
