I Nephi 3:174
Previous  Next   Ref:  
174    And thou seest because of the many plain and precious
    things which have been taken out of the book-
    which were plain unto the understanding
    of the children of men according to the plainness
    which is in the Lamb of God-
175    And because of these things which are taken away
    out of the gospel of the Lamb,
An exceeding great many do stumble, yea, insomuch
    that Satan hath great power over them.
176    "Nevertheless, thou beholdest that the Gentiles which have
    gone forth out of captivity and have been lifted up
    above by the power of God above all other nations
    upon the face of the land-
Which is choice above all other lands,
177    Which is the land which the Lord God hath covenanted
    with thy father that his seed should have
    for the land of their inheritance-
Wherefore, thou seest that the Lord God will not suffer
    that the Gentiles will utterly destroy the mixture
    of thy seed which is among thy brethren.
178    "Neither will He suffer that the Gentiles shall destroy
    the seed of thy brethren;
179    Neither will the Lord God suffer that the Gentiles shall
    forever remain in that state of awful woundedness,
    which thou beholdest that they are in because of the
    plain and most precious parts of the gospel of the Lamb
    which hath been kept back by that abominable church,
    whose formation thou hast seen;
180    'Wherefore,' saith the Lamb of God, 'I will be merciful
    unto the Gentiles unto the visiting of the remnant
    of the house of Israel in great judgment.'"
181    And it came to pass that the angel of the Lord
    spake unto me, saying:
"'Behold,' saith the Lamb of God, 'after that I have visited
    the remnant of the house of Israel-and this remnant of
    which I speak is the seed of thy father-
182    Wherefore, after that I have visited them in judgment
    and smitten them by the hand of the Gentiles,
183    And after that the Gentiles do stumble exceedingly because
    of the most plain and most precious parts of the gospel
    of the Lamb which hath been kept back by that
    abominable church which is the mother of harlots,'
    saith the Lamb,
'Wherefore, I will be merciful unto the Gentiles
    in that day,' saith the Lamb,
'Insomuch that I will bring forth unto them in Mine own
    power much of My gospel, which shall be plain
    and most precious,' saith the Lamb.
