Alma 30:56 - 30:60

Alma 30:56 And it came to pass that the curse was not taken off of Korihor; but he was cast out, and went about from house to house begging for his food.

The curse of dumbness was not removed from Korihor and was removed from the chambers of the judges. He now went house to house begging for food.

Alma 30:57 Now the knowledge of what had happened unto Korihor was immediately published throughout all the land; yea, the proclamation was sent forth by the chief judge to all the people in the land, declaring unto those who had believed in the words of Korihor that they must speedily repent, lest the same judgments would come unto them.

The news of what had happened to Korihor was published throughout the land. The chief judge warned the people who were followers of Korihor that they needed to repent quickly because the same thing might happen to them.

Alma 30:58 And it came to pass that they were all convinced of the wickedness of Korihor; therefore they were all converted again unto the Lord; and this put an end to the iniquity after the manner of Korihor. And Korihor did go about from house to house, begging food for his support.

The population got the message and did return to the church. Korihor’s followers now realized that they were duped and returned to worshiping the Lord. Korihor could now only rely on people giving him food for his support.

Alma 30:59 And it came to pass that as he went forth among the people, yea, among a people who had separated themselves from the Nephites and called themselves Zoramites, being led by a man whose name was Zoram—and as he went forth amongst them, behold, he was run upon and trodden down, even until he was dead.

Korihor went to a people called the Zoramites who had isolated themselves from the Nephite population. The Zoramites were led by a man named Zoram. Anyway Korihor was run over by them and killed.

Alma 30:60 And thus we see the end of him who perverteth the ways of the Lord; and thus we see that the devil will not support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to hell.

The story of Korihor is a lesson to us all. It shows that satan will not or cannot support his followers. His only desire is to destroy us and bring us under his domination and into his realm.
