1st Nephi : 21 - Isaiah
I think that most of this chapter is talking about the gathering of the tribes of Israel, although I could be completely and totally offbase. This is one of the chapters which I probably wouldn't write about had I not made a resolution to write about each and every chapter from the Book of Mormon.
Pretty difficult to understand right now.
There is one verse which I believe I understand, however. Verse 16 is simply beautiful. I love it when scripture is poetry, poetry that I understand, that is.
"Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands..."
The verse before that talks about mothers being always aware of their young, and I believe that leads to this verse meaning that our Savior cannot forget us. He loves us and will love us forever.
