2 Nephi Chapter 6

Read it HERE

(1)The words of Jacob, the brother of Nephi, which he spake unto the people of Nephi.

Jacob is such a great leader.  He is desirous for the welfare of [their] souls (v.3). He has exhorted the people with diligence (3). Taught them the words of the prophet, and from the scriptures (4). He is teaching them that they may learn and glorify the name of [their] God (v.4)

He goes on to tell the people "the Lord has shown me that those who were at Jerusalem, from whence we came, have been slain and carried away captive (v8)."

Here, we learn that Lehi's prophecy has been fulfilled. How do you think Nephi's people, those who believed Lehi, felt in learning this? How do you think the Lamanites would feel if they had somehow received this revelation themselves? Just a thought.

Jacob quotes Isaiah when he teaches  the people about the gathering of Israel both physically and spiritually.

versus 13-18 prophecy that those who "fight against Zion and the covenant people of the Lord", will ultimately be destroyed.

I know which Side I want to be on!

Me too! Thanks for helping us all get there. I like the thoughts you had on the verse you quoted. That would be so sobering to me if I was one of the Nephites.
