Zoram²

Following the ministry of Alma and Amulek in the wicked city of Ammonihah, the Lamanites attacked and destroyed the city in the year 81 BC in fulfillment of prophecy. Some citizens were taken captive by the Lamanites and led into the wilderness. The chief captain over the Nephite armies at the time was a man named Zoram, who had two sons, Aha and Lehi. Zoram inquired of Alma the high priest where he should take his forces to recover the captives. After receiving directions from the Lord, he told Zoram where to go. Zoram then took his two sons and marched forth to engage the Lamanites. The Lamanites were scattered and driven into the wilderness and the Nephite prisoners were returned to their homes unhurt.
