Zarahemla(????? ??????? )


Recommended Posts

Stephen D. Ricks, and John A. Tvedtnes argued that Zarahemla might be zera+chemla(????? ??????? )

"seed of compassion". Chemla(???????) means "compassion, merciful, pity" and it's cognate chamal(?????) means "spared".

Mosiah 9: 2

2)Therefore, I contended with my brethren in the wilderness, for I would that our ruler should make a treaty with them; but he being an austere and a blood-thirsty man commanded that I should be slain; but I was rescued by the shedding of much blood; for father fought against father, and brother against brother, until the greater number of our army was destroyed in the wilderness; and we returned, those of us that were spared(?????), to the land of Zarahemla(????? ??????? ), to relate that tale to their wives and their children.

3 Ne. 8: 24

24)And in one place they were heard to cry, saying: O that we had repented before this great and terrible day, and then would our brethren have been spared(?????), and they would not have been burned in that great city Zarahemla(????? ??????? ).

See 1 Samuel 15:9 and 2 Samuel 21:7
