Mosiah 19:6 - 19:10
Mosiah 19:6 And Gideon pursued after him and was about to get upon the tower to slay the king, and the king cast his eyes round about towards the land of Shemlon, and behold, the army of the Lamanites were within the borders of the land.
Gideon is right behind him and as king Noah is climbing, he sees, to his horror, that an army of Lamanites are launching an attach on the land of Shemlon.
Mosiah 19:7 And now the king cried out in the anguish of his soul, saying: Gideon, spare me, for the Lamanites are upon us, and they will destroy us; yea, they will destroy my people.
Noah pleads for his life saying that he wants to fight with his people to save themselves from the Lamanites.
Mosiah 19:8 And now the king was not so much concerned about his people as he was about his own life; nevertheless, Gideon did spare his life.
Now the king really didn’t care about the lives of his people as much as he did for his own life, but Gideon let his live.
Mosiah 19:9 And the king commanded the people that they should flee before the Lamanites, and he himself did go before them, and they did flee into the wilderness, with their women and their children.
Noah then commanded that all his people gather up their families and run for the hills.
Mosiah 19:10 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did pursue them, and did overtake them, and began to slay them.
However the Lamanites did catch up to them and began to slaughter them.
