Nephi explains the meaning of the two chapters he copied from Isaiah: The Catholic church will get drunk on its own blood, all other non-LDS churches
will be destroyed, and those who oppose Mormonism will be burned to death by God. (588-570 BCE)
Someday Catholics will get drunk on their own blood
1 And now it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had read these things which were
engraven upon the plates of brass, my brethren came unto me and said unto me: What meaneth these things which ye have
read? Behold, are they to be understood according to things which are spiritual, which shall come to pass according to
the spirit and not the flesh?
2 And I, Nephi, said unto them: Behold they were manifest unto the prophet by the voice of the Spirit;
for by the Spirit are all things made known unto the prophets, which shall come upon the children of men according to the
3 Wherefore, the things of which I have read are things pertaining to things both temporal and
spiritual; for it appears that the house of Israel, sooner or later, will be scattered upon all the face of the earth,
and also among all nations.
4 And behold, there are many who are already lost from the knowledge of those who are at Jerusalem.
Yea, the more part of all the tribes have been led away; and they are scattered to and fro upon the isles of the sea;
and whither they are none of us knoweth, save that we know that they have been led away.
5 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; wherefore, they shall be scattered among all nations and shall be hated of all
6 Nevertheless, after they shall be 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; and it meaneth us in the days to come, and also all our brethren who are of the house of
7 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;
and by them shall our seed be scattered.
8 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; wherefore, it is likened unto their being nourished by the Gentiles and
being carried in their arms and upon their shoulders.
9 And it shall also be of worth unto the Gentiles; and not only unto the Gentiles but unto all the
house of Israel, unto the making known of the covenants of the Father of heaven unto Abraham, saying: In thy seed shall
all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
10 And I would, my brethren, that ye should know that all the kindreds of the earth cannot be blessed
unless he shall make bare his arm in the eyes of the nations.
11 Wherefore, the Lord God will proceed to make bare his arm in the eyes of all the nations, in
bringing about his covenants and his gospel unto those who are of the house of Israel.
12 Wherefore, he will bring them again out of captivity, and they shall be gathered together to the
lands of their inheritance; and they shall be brought out of obscurity and out of darkness; and they shall know that the
Lord is their Savior and their Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel.
After I read these chapters from Isaiah, my brothers asked me to explain them. 
Here's what I told them:
13 And the blood of that great and abominable church, which is the
whore of all the earth, shall turn
upon their own heads; for they shall war among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own
heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood.
The great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, will be drunken with her own blood.
14 And every nation which shall war against thee, O house of Israel, shall be turned
one against another, and they shall fall into the pit which they digged to ensnare the people of the Lord.
And all that fight against Zion shall be destroyed, and that great whore, who hath
perverted the right ways of the Lord, yea, that great and abominable church, shall tumble to the dust
and great shall be the fall of it.
Everyone who fights against Zion will be destroyed. 
And the great and abominable church, the great whore, will tumble to the ground.
15 For behold, saith the prophet, the time cometh
speedily that Satan shall have no more power over the hearts of the children of men;
for the day soon cometh that all the proud and
they who do wickedly shall be as stubble; and the day cometh that they must be burned.
Proud people and the enemies of the righteous will be burned.
16 For the time soon comeththat the fulness of the wrath of God shall
be poured out upon all the children of men; for he will not suffer that the wicked shall destroy the righteous.
17 Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that
the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of
their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved,
even if it so be as by fire.
The wrath of God will pour out on everyone. 
18 Behold, my brethren, I say unto you, that
these things must shortly
come; yea, even blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke must come; and it must needs
be upon the face of this earth; and it
cometh unto men according to the flesh if it so be that they will harden their hearts against the Holy One of Israel.
19 For behold, the righteous shall not perish; for the time surely must come that all
they who fight against Zion shall be cut off.
These things will happen soon.
20 And the Lord will surely prepare a way for his people, unto the fulfilling of the
words of Moses, which he spake, saying: A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, like unto me;
him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
And it shall come to pass
that all those who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.
21 And now I, Nephi, declare unto you, that this prophet of whom Moses spake was the Holy One of
Israel; wherefore, he shall execute judgment in righteousness.
22 And the righteous need not fear, for they are those who shall not be confounded. But it is the
kingdom of the devil, which shall be built up among the children of men, which kingdom is established among them which
are in the flesh --
A prophet will come that's like Moses. 
Whoever refuses to listen to him will be cut off.
23 For the time speedily shall come that
all churches which are built up to get gain, and all those
who are built up to get power over the flesh, and those who are built up to become popular in the eyes of the world,
and those who seek the lusts of the flesh and the things of the world, and to do all manner of iniquity; yea, in fine,
all those who belong to the kingdom of the devil are they who need fear, and tremble, and quake; they are those who must
be brought low in the dust; they are those who must be consumed as stubble; and this is according to the words of the
24 And the time cometh speedily that the righteous must be led up as calves of the stall, and the Holy
One of Israel must reign in dominion, and might, and power, and great glory.
25 And he gathereth his children from the four quarters of the earth; and he numbereth his sheep, and
they know him; and there shall be one fold and one shepherd; and he shall feed his sheep, and in him they shall find
26 And because of the righteousness of his people, Satan has no power; wherefore, he cannot be loosed
for the space of many years; for he hath no power over the hearts of the people, for they dwell in righteousness, and the
Holy One of Israel reigneth.
27 And now behold, I, Nephi, say unto you that all these things must come according to the flesh.
28 But, behold, all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people shall dwell safely in the Holy One of
Israel if it so be that they will repent.
All churches who belong to the devil will be destroyed.
29 And now I, Nephi, make an end; for I durst not speak further as yet concerning these things.
I'm going to stop talking now.
30 Wherefore, my brethren, I would that ye should consider that
the things which have been written
upon the plates of brass are true; and they testify that a man must be obedient to the commandments of God.
Things that have been written on brass plates are true.
31 Wherefore, ye need not suppose that I and my father are the
only ones that have testified, and
also taught them. Wherefore, if ye shall be obedient to the commandments, and endure to the
end, ye shall be saved at the last day. And thus it is. Amen.
And it came to pass: 22:1, 20
Behold: 22:1, 2, 4, 6, 15,
18, 19, 27, 28, ,
Yea: 22:4, 7, 14, 18, 23,
22:14 pervert the right ways of the Lord -- Acts 13:10
22:15 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do
wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up. -- Malachi .4:1
(Nephi, supposedly writing this around 590 BCE, quoted words from the book of
Malachi, which had not yet been written.)
22:17 but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.-- 1 Corinthians 3:15
22:18 blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke -- Acts 2:19
22:20 A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all
things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that
every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. -- Acts 3:22-23
(Notice that this verse (which was supposed to have been written around 600 BCE) quotes Peter's paraphrase of
Deuteronomy 18:15, 18-19, rather than the Old Testament passage itself. )
22:25 and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. -- John 10:16
22:28 every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. -- Revelation 14:6
22:31 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. -- Matthew 24:13
