“No One Hath Told Me, Save It Be God”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

Ammon, without any hesitation, answered Lamoni's question. God, alone, is He who told me, was his prompt reply. No shilly-shallying on Ammon's part; he did not occupy himself with trifles, or apologies and pretexts. To the unbeliever, or skeptic, who loves to carp and cavil, Ammon's answer would have been scorned, but to Lamoni, who was now anhungered and athirst for God's every word, it was a command, quickly to be observed. That command brooked no delay.

Lamoni at once ordered his servants to make ready his horses and chariots that he might forthwith go with Ammon and seek the release from prison of the brethren of Ammon.

His entourage now made ready, the king, himself, was anxious to be on the way. He urged Ammon that in haste they start their journey. "Come," Lamoni said, "I will go with thee."
