In Alma 27:28 we learn of the people of Ammon, who were recently converted Lamanites, with a vow that “they never could be prevailed upon to take up arms.” However, we find later in the Book of Alma (53:13-14) they, in fact, do this very thing, and it is Helaman who has to insist that they keep their promise.
