1 Nephi 22

 After Nephi read some of Isaiah’s writings to his brethren, they came to him asking for clarification of what he had read them.  And what a blessing for us that they did!  He explained that what he read to them from Isaiah shows that the Lord’s covenant to Abraham that all the earth shall be blessed through his seed will be fulfilled through the record he is keeping (that is, the Book of Mormon).  He specifically explained it this way:  Because of the way the House of Israel would treat the Holy One of Israel, they would be scattered among all nations.  After that scattering a mighty nation of Gentiles would be raised up on the American continent, which would scatter the seed of Lehi.  Afterward the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, which is filled with teachings about Jesus Christ, is to gather the seed of Lehi, the Gentiles and all of scattered Israel together into the True Fold (see verses 7 – 9).
