According to the Book of Mormon, Gideon was a faithful Nephite leader, and a strong man and an enemy to King Noah. After King Noah's expulsion and death by fire, Gideon counseled with Noah's son, King Limhi in Mosiah 20: 17-22. He proposed a plan for escaping from Lamanite bondage. Gideon grew to be an old man and was killed by Nehor. After his mortal death, a city of the Nephites was named after him.
