“For the Nephites, ‘Jews’ are nationals, persons from the kingdom of Judah. (2 Nephi 30:4; 33:8). ‘Gentiles’ are persons from elsewhere. In this sense, the Latter-day Saints are called Gentiles (D&C 109:60). In this vision the ‘nations and kingdoms of the Gentiles’ are the European nations.” (R. Millet and J. F. McConkie, Doctrinal Commentary on the Book of Mormon, 1:89)
