A corrupt and cowardly man, King Noah ruled the land of Lehi-Nephi and caused that his people should commit all manner of sin. After he murdered the prophet Abinadi and chased the followers of Alma from the land, King Noah’s people turned against him. Pursued by Gideon to the top of a tower, the king spotted the Lamanites invading his territory. He convinced Gideon to spare his life so that he might lead the people to safety, then persuaded some of his men to leave their families behind so their escape would not be hindered. These men would eventually burn the king to death.
