The armies set up camp for the night, the Nephites staying in the valley of Gideon.
Alma sends four spies out to the Amlicite camp: Zeram, Amnor, Manti, and Limher.
In the morning, the spies return and report that the Amlicites have joined forces with the Lamanites, and have begun to ransack the city of Zarahemla.
The Nephite army returns toward Zarahemla and is met by the Amlicites.
The Nephites attack in the strength of the Lord, and are met with great success.
