La colline Onidah

Onidah is a geographical location mentioned within the sacred text as a hill in the land of Antionum. This region was inhabited by a group known as the Zoramites, who had deviated from the beliefs and practices of the Nephite nation. The hill became notable for its role as a place of preaching by the prophet Alma2, who used it as a platform to reach out to the humbler class of the Zoramites, around 74 B.C. These individuals were described as being “poor in heart” due to their poverty in worldly possessions (Alma 32:4). The account places particular emphasis on the circumstances that led this group to seek guidance from Alma2; they were notably suffering from societal exclusion and spiritual neglect. The interactions on the hill Onidah contributed significantly to the Book of Mormon’s exposition on faith and the nurturing of the word of God likened unto a seed, as Alma2 took the opportunity to deliver one of the most poignant sermons on these subjects. The hill itself, beyond this incident, is not described in further detail, marking its primary significance in the text as the setting for Alma2’s instruction on faith, humility, and the trials of the Zoramites.
