5 God blessed Alma the Younger and the sons of Mosiah as they taught the gospel. Many people listened to them and believed.
6 Before King Mosiah died, the Nephites chose judges to lead them. Alma the Younger became the first chief judge.He was also the leader of the Church.
7 The Church members shared everything they had with the poor, and they cared for the sick. They obeyed the commandments, and God blessed them.
8 Not all of the Nephites were righteous. These people loved riches and would not obey God’s commandments.
9 The wicked Nephites listened to men who did not believe the gospel. They made fun of the Church members and argued and fought with them.
10 Alma worried about the Nephites’ wickedness, so he decided to spend all of his time preaching the gospel.He chose Nephihah to replace him as chief judge.
11 Alma taught the gospel throughout the land. When he tried to preach in Ammonihah, the people would not listen.They threw him out of the city.
12 Alma was sad that the people of Ammonihah were so wicked. He left to go to another city.An angel appeared and comforted Alma.
13 The angel told him to go back to Ammonihah and preach again. Alma hurried back.
14 Alma was hungry.As he entered the city, he asked a man for some food.An angel had told the man that Alma would come and that Alma was a prophet of God.

21 Some of the people became angry, especially one wicked man named Zeezrom. They tried to trick Amulek with questions, but he told them he knew about their plan.
22 Zeezrom wanted to destroy everything that was good. He would cause problems, and then people would pay him money to solve the problems he had created.
23 Zeezrom could not trick Amulek, so he offered him money to say there is no God. Amulek knew God lives and said Zeezrom knew it too but loved money more than God.
24 Then Amulek taught Zeezrom about Jesus and about the Resurrection and eternal life. The people were amazed.Zeezrom began to shake with fear.
