What’s happening? The Lamanites attack the Nephites. Some Lamanites are converted at this time. And Abinadi’s prophecies concern the wicked priests of Noah’s children come to pass.
Why does it matter? The Lamanites are covering their remorse for killing the Anti-Nephi-Lehies with more killing, this time directed at the Nephites.
Between the lines: Anger can mask deeper emotions. Remorse and regret in this case.
