This song is referenced by Song 101 – This New Song. The image is titled “Molitmoz” by Gonzalo Kenny and is posted in Book of Mormon Central. No copyright notices were seen, and since I’m using another source without written permission, I reference where the image comes from comes from. This painting is an interpretation of Ammon, which caught my eye during a google search. It was published June 30, 2016 as KnoWhy #133. The recording of singing these 35 verses is 25 minutes 49 seconds long, and the text is 4 pages with 2 columns per page. A lot of words, and words which amazingly summarize what was told earlier in the Book of Mosiah and in the Book of Alma, and which was told succinctly and clearly. After all of the writing I have done, in my 68 years of life, I would have a hard time writing this type of a summary, and it would have been impossible to write this and the two other chapters, with an additional 58 verses, like Joseph Smith translated in one day, on the 17th of April 1829. For example, in my Excel Spread-Sheet study of the Book of Mormon (of which various versions are available on line at, when I do get to Alma 26, I anticipate it will take me at least 18 days to go through these verses in Alma 26-28 and capture the names and attributes of God, Christ, The Holy Ghost, Angels, and Satan in the spread-sheet. And to top that off, think how poetically these words are written, so they could be copied, guitar chords put with them, and published as a song, where what I wrote took 2 days (15 January and 28 February 2015). “Thousands of them do rejoice, And have been brought, Into the fold of God. Behold, the field was write, And blessed are ye, For ye did thrust In the sickle, And did reap with your might, yea, All the day long did ye labor, And behold the number of your sheaves! And they shall be gathered into the garners, That they are not wasted.” Then there is the little side note, “When Ammon had said these words, His brother Aaron rebuked him, saying, Ammon, I fear that thy joy doth carry, Thee away unto boasting.” I continue to struggle with pride, and I’ve worked on it hard for many years. Did Joseph Smith understand the principle of pride? Yet the words are so eloquent. I testify these words are inspired words of God.
