Mormon, the historian, now injects an editorial comment into the record with the following statement:

“Now we see that Ammon could not be slain, for the Lord had said unto Mosiah, his father: I will spare him, and it shall be unto him according to thy faith -- therefore, Mosiah trusted him unto the Lord.”
