The Zoramites:
–live right below the Anti-Nephi-Lehies.
–are Nephites who dissent and separate themselves from the Nephites, and join the Lamanites.
–hearts are set on riches.
–despise the poor and cast them out.
–use threats to get their way.
–use violence to control/ hurt others.
–come to fight.

The Anti-Nephi-Lehies:
–live right above the Zoramites.
–are Lamanites who leave and join the Nephites.
–hearts are set on God and His work.
–welcome the poor with open arms and hearts and do all they can for them.
–don’t heed threats.
–use love to help others.
