And when Ammon did meet them he was exceedingly sorrowful, for behold
they were naked, and their skins were worn exceedingly because of being
bound with strong cords. And they also had suffered hunger, thirst, and all kinds of afflictions; nevertheless they were patientin all their sufferings.
And now behold, we have come, and been forth amongst them; and we have been patientin our sufferings, and we have suffered
every privation; yea, we have traveled from house to house, relying
upon the mercies of the world—not upon the mercies of the world alone
but upon the mercies of God.
