Chapter Links to the Book of Isaiah

Chapters of Isaiah Quoted in the Book of Mormon

Book of Mormon prophets included about one-third of Isaiah’s 66 chapters in their engravings. That makes the Book of Mormon a special commentary on Isaiah’s works. And as Garold N. Davis explains the, “prophetic commentary” by Lehi, Nephi, Jacob, and the Lord himself helps us understand Isaiah passages in the Book of Mormon.

But according to Victor L. Ludlow, “About one-third of the verses have major differences when compared to the King James Version of the Bible—that is, wording changes or additions which significantly change or enlarge the meaning of the verse. Another one-third of the Isaiah verses in the Book of Mormon have minor wording or punctuation changes which do not alter the verse’s meaning, and one-third are exactly the same as the corresponding Biblical passages.

“Two large blocks of Isaiah chapters (2-14 and 48-54) are scattered among four books (1 Nephi, 2 Nephi, Mosiah, and 3 Nephi). In addition, Isaiah 29 is quoted in 2 Nephi.

“The following chart shows where these 21 Isaiah chapters are found in the Book of Mormon:
