I Nephi 3:164
Previous  Next   Ref:  
164    Wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."

165    And the angel of the Lord said unto me:
"Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from
    the mouth of a Jew;
And when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew
    it contained the fullness of the gospel of the Lord,
    of whom the twelve apostles bore record,
And they bore record according to the truth
    which is in the Lamb of God;
166    Wherefore, these things go forth from the Jews
    in purity unto the Gentiles, according to
    the truth which is in God.
167    "And after that they go forth by the hand of the twelve
    apostles of the Lamb from the Jews unto the Gentiles,

    and abominable church, which is the most abominable
    of all other churches.
168    "For behold, they have taken away from the gospel of the
    Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious,
169    And also many covenants of the Lord
    have they taken away;
170    And all this have they done that they might pervert the
    right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes
    and harden the hearts of the children of men.
171    "Wherefore, thou seest that after the book hath gone forth
    through the hands of the great and abominable church
    that there are many plain and most precious things
    taken away from the book, which is the book
    of the Lamb of God;
172    And after that these plain and precious things were taken
    away, it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles;
173    And after it goeth forth unto all the nations of the
    Gentiles-yea, even across the many waters
    which thou hast seen, with the Gentiles
    which have gone forth out of captivity-
