And they taught the people the ways of the Lord.
18    Wherefore, we withstood the Lamanites and swept them
    away out of our lands and began to fortify our cities,
    or whatsoever place of our inheritance;

And became exceeding rich in gold and in silver,
    and in precious things,
    and in fine workmanship of wood,
    in buildings and in machinery,
    and also in iron and copper and brass and steel,
Making all manner of tools of every kind
    to till the ground,
And weapons of war-
