Passage: 1 Nephi 3:4 - 1 Nephi 3:24

4 Yea, even six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem, a Prophet would the Lord God raise up among the Jews, Yea, even a Messiah, or in other words, a Savior of the world.
5 And he also spake concerning the prophets- How great a number had testified of these things concerning this Messiah of which he had spoken, or this Redeemer of the world;
6 Wherefore, all mankind was in a lost and in a fallen state and ever would be, save they should rely on this Redeemer.
7 And he spake also concerning a prophet which should come before the Messiah to prepare the way of the Lord;
8 Yea, even he should go forth and cry in the wilderness: "Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make His paths straight,
9 For there standeth One among you whom ye know not; And He is mightier than I, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose."
10 And much spake my father concerning this thing;
11 And my father saith that he should baptize in Bethabara beyond Jordan, And he also spake that he should baptize with water, yea, even that he should baptize the Messiah with water;
12 And after that he had baptized the Messiah with water, he should behold and bear record that he had baptized the Lamb of God which should take away the sin of the world.
13 And it came to pass that after my father had spoken these words, he spake unto my brethren concerning the gospel which should be preached among the Jews,
14 And also concerning the dwindling of the Jews in unbelief;
15 And after that they had slain the Messiah which should come, And after that He had been slain, He should rise from the dead and should make Himself manifest by the Holy Ghost unto the Gentiles.
16 Yea, even my father spake much concerning the Gentiles, and also concerning the house of Israel- That they should be compared like unto an olive tree whose branches should be broken off and should be scattered upon all the face of the earth;
17 Wherefore, he said it must needs be that we should be led with one accord into the Land of Promise, unto the fulfilling of the word of the Lord that we should be scattered upon all the face of the earth;
18 And after that the house of Israel should be scattered, they should be gathered together again;
19 Or, in fine, that after the Gentiles had received the fullness of the gospel, the natural branches of the olive tree-or the remnants of the house of Israel-should be grafted in, or come to the knowledge of the true Messiah, their Lord and their Redeemer.
20 And after this manner of language did my father prophesy and speak unto my brethren,
21 And also many more things which I do not write in this book, For I have written as many of them as were expedient for me in mine other book.
22 And all these things of which I have spoken were done as my father dwelt in a tent in the Valley of Lemuel.
23 And it came to pass that after I, Nephi- Having heard all the words of my father concerning the things which he saw in a vision,
24 And also the things which he spake by the power of the Holy Ghost, which power he received by faith on the Son of God,

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
