Nephi’s Quotations of Isaiah

The Gathering of Israel

2 Nephi 21:11

The Lord will begin to gather Israel.

And it shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people which shall be left,
from Assyria,
and from Egypt,
and from Pathros,
and from Cush,
and from Elam,
and from Shinar,
and from Hamath,
and from the islands of the sea.

2 Nephi 21:12–16

An ensign will be raised to lead the way to Zion.

And he shall set up an ensign for the nations,
and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.

The envy of Ephraim also shall depart,
and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines
towards the west;
they shall spoil them of the east together;
they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab;
and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue
of the Egyptian sea;
and with his mighty wind
he shall shake his hand over the river,
and shall smite it in the seven streams,
and make men go over dry shod.

And there shall be a highway
for the remnant of his people
which shall be left, from Assyria,
like as it was to Israel in the day
that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
