“In the Days of the Gentiles”

Monte S. Nyman

After various commentary on several passages of Isaiah, Nephi equates the last days with the days of the Gentiles and also the Jews coming upon the land of America and other lands, even upon all the lands of the earth. These nations “will be drunken with iniquity and all manner of abominations.” His comments seem to be a preface to his quoting the rest of Isaiah 29.
