Reynolds continues his summary of Nephite history under the reign of the Judges. He discusses the wickedness of the city of Ammonihah under the influence of Nehor's philosophy, as well as the short-lived career of Korihor. The long war caused by Amalickiah and his brother Ammoron is discussed, as well as the remarkable Nephites who rose up to combat their wickedness. The quick downfall in public virtue among the Nephites, leading to the rise of bands of the Gadianton Robbers, concludes the article.
