Alma 19:1 - 19:5

Alma 19:1 And it came to pass that after two days and two nights they were about to take his body and lay it in a sepulchre, which they had made for the purpose of burying their dead.

It was two days since Lamoni fell into his comatose state or trance. Since he did not awaken, people thought he was dead and were about to bury the body.

Alma 19:2 Now the queen having heard of the fame of Ammon, therefore she sent and desired that he should come in unto her.

The queen had heard about Ammon and his great powers and asked that Ammon come to see her about her hushand.

Alma 19:3 And it came to pass that Ammon did as he was commanded, and went in unto the queen, and desired to know what she would that he should do.

Ammon appeared as commanded and asked what she wanted.

Alma 19:4 And she said unto him: The servants of my husband have made it known unto me that thou art a prophet of a holy God, and that thou hast power to do many mighty works in his name;

She said to Ammon that her husband's servants had told her that he was a great prophet and had great powers given to him by God.

Alma 19:5 Therefore, if this is the case, I would that ye should go in and see my husband, for he has been laid upon his bed for the space of two days and two nights; and some say that he is not dead, but others say that he is dead and that he stinketh, and that he ought to be placed in the sepulchre; but as for myself, to me he doth not stink.

She asked Ammon to go and examine her husband as he had not moved since he was carried into their bedroom. Some people said he was dead and beginning to stink while others said he was not dead. Queen thought that he did not stink like a corpse but was not sure as to what was his condition.
