The Lord informs Ammon that his brothers are in prison in Middoni, and are in need of deliverance. On their way to Middoni, Lamoni and Ammon unexpectdly cross paths with Lamoni’s father, with whom they have a tense encounter.
Ammon and Lamoni go to Middoni, and are successful in negotiating Ammon’s brothers’ release. Ammon meets his brothers, who are battered and beaten from abuse in prison—they had not had the good fortunes Ammon had enjoyed in his preaching.
Ammon and Lamoni leave Aaron and his brothers, and return to Ishmael.
