“The Leopard Shall Lie Down with the Kid”

Brant Gardner

Reference: This verse is an unchanged quotation of Isaiah 11:7. Nephi is using Isaiah’s depiction of millennial peace to establish that the redemption of Yahweh’s covenant people (including, according to Nephi, those who have entered into the covenant of righteousness) will take place in the last days.
