A Marvelous Work and Wonder

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

Isaiah says that the Lord, because of the emptiness of the worship, would perform a "marvelous work and wonder," by means of which the wisdom of their wise and the understanding of their prudent would perish and be hid; and Nephi applies this language to the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, as the beginning of a marvelous work and wonder, the effects of which would be the humiliation of the wisdom and learning of the world.
