7 And behold there are many who are already lost from the knowledge of those who are at Jerusalem.

8 Yea, the more part of all the tribes have been led away;

9 And they are scattered to and fro upon the isles of the sea;

10 And whither they are, none of us knoweth, save that we know that they have been led away.

11 And since they have been led away, these things have been prophesied concerning them, and also concerning all those who shall hereafter be scattered and be confounded, because of the Holy One of Israel; for against him will they harden their hearts;

12 Wherefore, they shall be scattered among all nations, and shall be hated of all men.

13 Nevertheless, after they have been nursed by the Gentiles, and the Lord has lifted up his hand upon the Gentiles and set them up for a standard, and their children have been carried in their arms and their daughters have been carried upon their shoulders, behold, these things of which are spoken, are temporal: for thus are the covenants of the Lord with our fathers;

14 And it meaneth us in the days to come, and also all our brethren who are of the house of Israel.

15 And it meaneth that the time cometh that after all the house of Israel have been scattered and confounded, that the Lord God will raise up a mighty nation among the Gentiles, yea, even upon the face of this land;

16 And by them shall our seed be scattered.

17 And after our seed is scattered, the Lord God will proceed to do a marvelous work among the Gentiles, which shall be of great worth unto our seed;
