“I Will Proceed to Do A Marvelous Work Among This People”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

In verses 24-35 Nephi appears to be quoting from the brass plates, the passage we know as Isaiah 29:13-24. These words evidence that Isaiah saw our day, witnessed the erection of the glorious gospel standard—the ensign to the nations—among the Latter-day Saints, and acknowledged that such a restoration was indeed “a marvelous work and a wonder.”
