Alma 28:6 - 28:10

Alma 28:6 And now surely this was a sorrowful day; yea, a time of solemnity, and a time of much fasting and prayer.

A day of fasting and prayer was set aside to show the Lord just how sorrowful the people were over the great loss of life over the last few months.

Alma 28:7 And thus endeth the fifteenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi;

And thus ended the fifteenth year of the reign of the judges.

Alma 28:8 And this is the account of Ammon and his brethren, their journeyings in the land of Nephi, their sufferings in the land, their sorrows, and their afflictions, and their incomprehensible joy, and the reception and safety of the brethren in the land of Jershon. And now may the Lord, the Redeemer of all men, bless their souls forever.

Mormon ends his account of the ministry of Ammon and his brothers in the land of Nephi and their sufferings to bring the gospel to the Lamanites. In addition, the immeasurable joy they felt with the success of their ministries and the relief they had as the Anti-Nephi-Lehis were established in the land of Jershon as a safe refuge from the Lamanites who wanted to kill them for being traitors to their civilization.

Alma 28:9 And this is the account of the wars and contentions among the Nephites, and also the wars between the Nephites and the Lamanites; and the fifteenth year of the reign of the judges is ended.

And this was a brief recount of the fights and battles among the Nephites and Lamanites during the first fifteen years of the judges.

Alma 28:10 And from the first year to the fifteenth has brought to pass the destruction of many thousand lives; yea, it has brought to pass an awful scene of bloodshed.

These fifteen years were marked for the most part with the death and destruction of many lives which was not a pretty site to see.
