Mosiah 25:6 - 25:10

Mosiah 25:6 And he also read the account of Alma and his brethren, and all their afflictions, from the time they left the land of Zarahemla until the time they returned again.

Alma’s brief history was also read.

Mosiah 25:7 And now, when Mosiah had made an end of reading the records, his people who tarried in the land were struck with wonder and amazement.

The accounts of both records struck Mosiah's people with amazement.

Mosiah 25:8 For they knew not what to think; for when they beheld those that had been delivered out of bondage they were filled with exceedingly great joy.

They were amazed at the deliverance of Limhi and Alma’s people and their trials.

Mosiah 25:9 And again, when they thought of their brethren who had been slain by the Lamanites they were filled with sorrow, and even shed many tears of sorrow.

But they were sadden at the loss of a good number of Limhi’s people in battles with the Lamanites.
[I’m sure that they were hearing about their cousins and other relatives that had gone with Zeniff. Hearing of their problems must have caused them to feel sorry for their sufferings.]

Mosiah 25:10 And again, when they thought of the immediate goodness of God, and his power in delivering Alma and his brethren out of the hands of the Lamanites and of bondage, they did raise their voices and give thanks to God.

They thank God that He directly intervened in the deliverance of Alma and his people.
