Israel in the latter day shall the truth come unto the Gentiles the that the fulness of these things shall be made known unto them but Wo saith the Father unto the unbelieving of the Gentiles for notwithstanding that they have come forth upon the face of this land & have scattered my people which are of the house of Israel & my people which are of the house of Israel have been cast out from among them & have been trodden under feet by them & because of the mercies of the Father unto the Gentiles & also the judgments of the Father upon my people which are of the house of Israel verily verily I say unto you That after all this & I have caused my people which are of the house of Israel to be smitten & to be afflicted & to be slain & to be cast out from among them & to become hated by them & to become a hiss & a byword among them & thus commandeth the Father that I should say unto <​unto you​> at that day when the Gentiles shall sin against my Gospel & shall reject the fulness of my Gospel & shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts above all nations & above all the people of the whole earth & shall be filled with all manner of lyings & of deceits & of mischiefs & all manner of hypocracy & murders & priestcrafts <​&​> whoredoms & of secret abominations & if they shall do all these things & shall reject the fulness of my Gospel behold saith the Father I will bring the fulness of my Gospel from among them & then will I remember my covenant which I have made unto my people O House of Israel & I will bring my Gospel unto them & I will shew unto thee O house of Israel that the Gentiles shall not have power over you but I will remember my covenant unto you O house of Israel & ye shall come unto the knowledge of the fulness of my Gospel but <​but​> if the Gentiles will repent & return unto me saith the Father behold they shall be numbered among my people O house of Israel & I will not suffer my people which are of the house of Israel to go through among them & tred them down saith the Father but if they will not return unto me & hearken unto my voice I will suffer them yea I will suffer my people O house of Israel that they shall go through among them & shall tred them down & they shall be as salt that has <​hath​> lost its savor which is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out & to be trodden under food <​foot​> of my people O house of Israel verily verily I say unto you thus hath the Father commanded me that I should give unto this people this land for their inheritance & when the words of the prophet Isaiah shall be fulfilled which saith Thy watch men shall lift up the voice with the voice together shall they sing for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion brake forth into <​joy​> sing together ye waste places of Jerusalem for the Lord hath comforted his people he hath redeemed Jerusalem the Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations & all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of God.
Third Nephi, Chapter 8 [3 Nephi 17–18]
Chapter [blank]— Behold now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words he looked round about again on the multitude & he saith unto them <​Behold​> my time is at hand I perceive that ye are weak that ye cannot understand all my words which I am commanded of the Father to speak unto you [p. 389]
