Excerpt from Book of Mormon Title Page

 And gave him (Joseph Smith) power from on high, by the means which were before prepared, to translate the Book of Mormon;

 Which contains a record of a fallen people, and the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles and to the Jews also;

Doctrine & Covenants 20:8-9

Behold, my soul delighteth in proving unto my people the truth of the coming of Christ; for, for this end hath the law of Moses been given; and all things which have been given of God from the beginning of the world, unto man, are the typifying of him.

2 Nephi 11:4


Wherefore, the Jews shall be scattered among all nations; yea, and also Babylon shall be destroyed; wherefore, the Jews shall be scattered by other nations.
And after they have been scattered, and the Lord God hath scourged them by other nations for the space of many generations, yea, even down from generation to generation until they shall be persuaded to believe in Christ, the Son of God, and the atonement, which is infinite for all mankind-- and when that day shall come that they shall believe in Christ, and worship the Father in his name, with pure hearts and clean hands, and look not forward any more for another Messiah, then, at that time, the day will come that it must needs be expedient that they should believe these things.
2 Nephi 25:15-16
And as I spake concerning the convincing of the Jews,
that Jesus is the very Christ . . .

2 Nephi 26:12
O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people?

2 Nephi 29:5
And it shall come to pass that the Jews shall have the words of the Nephites, and the Nephites shall have the words of the Jews; and the Nephites and the Jews shall have the words of the lost tribes of Israel; and the lost tribes of Israel shall have the words of the Nephites and the Jews.

2 Nephi 29:13
And it shall come to pass that the Jews which are scattered also shall begin to believe in Christ; and they shall begin to gather in upon the face of the land.

2 Nephi 30:7
I have charity for the Jew.

2 Nephi 33:8

And for this intent we keep the law of Moses, it pointing our souls to him.

Jacob 4:5  


Wherefore, the prophets, and the priests, and the teachers, did labor diligently, exhorting with all long-suffering the people to diligence;

 teaching the law of Moses, and the intent for which it was given; persuading them to look forward unto the Messiah, . . .

Jarom 1:11

Is it not as necessary that the plan of redemption should be made known unto this people as well as unto their children?

Alma 39:18


... yea, and also by the maintenance of the sacred word of God, to which we owe all our happiness; and by all that is most dear unto us --

Alma 44:5

... and also that the Jews, the covenant people of the Lord, shall have other witness besides him whom they saw and heard, that Jesus, whom they slew, was the very Christ and the very God.
                                                         Mormon 3:21


... all things which are hid must be revealed upon the house-tops.

Mormon 5:8


And behold, they (The Book of Mormon teachings) shall go unto the Jews; and for this intent shall they go -- that they may be persuaded that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God; that the Father may bring about, through his most Beloved, his great and eternal purpose, in restoring the Jews, or all the house of Israel, to the land of their inheritance, which the Lord their God hath given them, unto the fulfilling of his covenant;

Mormon 5:14


Know ye that ye are of the house of Israel.

Mormon 7:2


For none can have power to bring it to light save it be given of him of God;
for God wills that it shall be done with an eye single to his glory, or the welfare of the ancient and long dispersed covenant people of the Lord.

Mormon 8:15


... the stone that was cut out of the mountain without hands ...

Daniel 2:45

For the eternal purposes of the Lord shall roll on,
until all his promises shall be fulfilled.

...and none can stay it...  

Mormon 8:22,26


And if our plates had been sufficiently large
we should have written in Hebrew....

Mormon 9:33

Thus saith the Lord:

Come unto me, O ye house of Israel, and it shall be made manifest unto you how great things the Father hath laid up for you, from the foundation of the world.

Ether 4:14


The Book of Mormon is the instrument that God designed to "sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out [His] elect." (Moses 7:62)

President Ezra Taft Benson, Flooding the Earth with the Book of Mormon, Ensign, November 1988.
And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

Mark 13:10
And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

Isaiah 54:13


 And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Isaiah 29:4  

The Book of Mormon has a familiar spirit.  Ancient prophets recorded it on golden plates which were buried in the ground.


For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD,
as the waters cover the sea.

Isaiah 11:9

O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews.

1 Corinthians 9:20

And so all Israel shall be saved . . .

Romans 11:26


Wherefore, I must bring forth the fulness of my gospel from the Gentiles unto
the house of Israel.

Doctrine & Covenants 14:10
And again, (seek diligently to turn) the hearts of the Jews unto the prophets, and the prophets unto the Jews; lest I come and smite the whole earth with a curse, and all flesh be consumed before me.
Doctrine & Covenants 98:17
We therefore ask thee to have mercy upon the children of Jacob, that Jerusalem, from this hour, may begin to be redeemed;

 And the yoke of bondage may begin to be broken off from the house of David;

 And the children of Judah may begin to return to the lands which thou didst give to Abraham, their father.

  And may all the scattered remnants of Israel, who have been driven to the ends of the earth, come to a knowledge of the truth, believe in the Messiah, and be redeemed from oppression, and rejoice before thee.

Doctrine & Covenants 109: 62-64, 67

Come, ye dispersed of Judah, Join in the theme and sing With harmony unceasing The praises of our King, Whose arm is now extended, On which the world may gaze, To gather up the righteous In these the latter days.

Come, All Ye Saints of Zion, LDS Hymn no. 38

And the Holy Ghost giveth authority that I should speak these things, and deny them not.

1 Nephi 10:22

Thou hast seen and heard all this; and will ye not declare them?

1 Nephi 20:6

O then, is not this real? I say unto you, Yea, because it is light;
and whatsoever is light, is good.

Alma 32:35

Remember Nehemiah, who was charged with building a wall to protect Jerusalem. Some wanted him to come down and compromise his position, but Nehemiah refused. He was not intolerant of others; he simply explained, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease … ?

Elder Robert D. Hales, Stand Strong in Holy Places,
General Conference, April 2013

We live in times of great challenges and great opportunities. The Lord is seeking men like Nehemiah—faithful brethren who fulfill the oath and covenant of the priesthood. He seeks to enlist unfaltering souls who diligently go about the work of building the kingdom of God—those who, when faced with opposition and temptation, say in their hearts, “I am doing a great work and cannot come down.”
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, We Are Doing a Great Work and Cannot Come Down
General Conference, April 2009

 For it shall come to pass in that day, that every man shall hear the fulness of the gospel in his own tongue, and in his own language, through those who are ordained unto this power, by the administration of the Comforter, shed forth upon them for the revelation of
Jesus Christ.

Doctrine & Covenants 90:11


For behold, the time is at hand that whosoever bringeth forth not good fruit, or whosoever doeth not the works of righteousness, the same have cause to wail and mourn.

Alma 5:36


In 1832, as some early missionaries returned from their fields of labor, the Lord reproved them for treating the Book of Mormon lightly. As a result of that attitude, he said, their minds had been darkened. Not only had treating this sacred book lightly brought a loss of light to themselves, it had also brought the whole Church under condemnation, even all the children of Zion. And then the Lord said, “And they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon”
(D&C 84:54–57)

- President Ezra Taft Benson, The Book of Mormon - Keystone of Our Religion, Ensign, November 1986

We have been provided divine attributes to guide our journey. We enter mortality not to float with the moving currents of life but with the power to think, to reason, and to achieve. 

- President Thomas S. Monson, April 2012 General Conference

My dear friends, today there are more ways than ever for us to open our mouths and share with others the joyful news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is a way for everyone—even the hesitant missionary—to participate in this great work. We can each find a way to use our own particular talents and interests in support of the great work of filling the world with light and truth. As we do so, we will find the joy that comes to those who are faithful and courageous enough “to stand as witnesses of God at all times” (Mosiah 18:9).

- President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, February 2013, First Presidency Message
Our work is to prepare ourselves and the world for the coming of the Messiah in glory!

- President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, 2010, First Presidency Christmas Devotional,
December 5, 2010

With years of preparation, there has been an enormous effort to produce the scriptures in every language, with footnotes and cross-references.

We seek to make them available to all who wish to learn. They teach us where to go and what to do. They offer hope and knowledge.

Also, if someone needs a project... but is unable to help with the Hebrew translation.... we still need to translate the Book of Mormon into Latin! Let's do this for our Catholic brothers and sisters!

William Tyndale

William Tyndale (1494 - 1536) translated the Bible into English directly from Hebrew and Greek texts.

He was the first person to take advantage of Gutenberg's movable-type press for the purpose of printing the scriptures in the English language.

Tyndale declared to a clergyman who opposed his work:

"If God spare my life ere many years, I will cause the boy that drives the plow to know more of the scriptures than you!"

(Elder D. Todd Christofferson spoke of William Tyndale in his April 2010 conference talk).

My simple goal is to translate the Book of Mormon from English to Hebrew so that the Jewish boy or girl on a kibbutz may know as much of this book as any teacher or leader in the LDS faith.


Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.
Barukh sheim k'vod malkhuto l'olam va'ed.
Blessed be the Name of His glorious kingdom for ever and ever.

The high priests recited the shema in Solomon's Temple.  See also Deuteronomy 6:4 and Mark 12:29.  The restoration of the fullness of the gospel is a work in progress.  The day will come when the Sons of Levi do again offer an offering unto the Lord in righteousness within a temple at Jerusalem.

Lesson Learned from Translating the Book of Mormon into Hebrew

1.  HaMashiach, the Messiah, is used instead of Christ.  Both titles refer to the "anointed one."  But the name Christ is Greek.  The authors of the Book of Mormon would have been unfamiliar with Greek.  Furthermore the Jews are well acquainted with the concept of a Messiah.

2.  The Hebrew name for Jesus is: Yeshua, which means "He who saves." (See Matthew 1:19-21)

3.  The subtitle is changed to: Another Testament of Jesus the Messiah, Son of David, Son of God, or Yeshua HaMashiach, Ben David, Ben Elohim.  The purpose is to emphasize that Jesus was Jewish and was of the lineage of David, following the example of Matthew 1.

4. Jesus the Messiah is the Torah made flesh and dwelt among us. Synthesis of 3 Nephi 15:9 & John 1:14.

5. YHWH is used for Lord. YHWH is a form of the Hebrew Hayah (I AM) and is pronounced as Yahweh. The equivalent name in English is Jehovah.  See Exodus 3:14.

6. Elohim is plural, meaning Gods.

7. The condescension of God is explained using a Hebrew phrase for God will lower himself to mortal life.  This may be the single most important concept for the Jews to understand. (1 Nephi 11:16)

8. Jacob bids farewell using the term adieu (Jacob 7:27).  Shalom, or peace, is used for adieu.

9. Hosanna (Hoshea na) - Hebrew for Please save or save now.  See 3 Nephi 11:17.

10. Yam Suph, the Sea of Reeds, is substituted for the Red Sea, per Jewish tradition. 

11. The law of Moses is translated as the Torah of Moses. (1 Nephi 4:15 & elsewhere)

12. The verb shema means listen and obey.  This verb is used throughout the translation.

13. The most common commandment in the Book of Mormon is to Behold, given 1651 times.

14. The Lord commands us to be baptized "that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of Israel."  See 3 Nephi 30:2.

15.  Lashuv meets to return and repent. See Jacob 3:8 & elsewhere.

16. Teshuvah is the noun for return and repentance.

17. Adam also means man.  The children of men is translated as the children of Adam. The name Adam comes from the Hebrew adamah, meaning earth. 

Recall Genesis 2:7,  Then the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

18. Mary is Miriam in Hebrew.  See Mosiah 3:8.

19.  The phrase I would that ye should remember appears 15 times in the Book of Mormon. See 2 Nephi 31:4 and elsewhere.

20.  Some of the Isaiah verses are quoted multiple times in the Book of Mormon.  For example, Isaiah 52:9 is quoted four times:

Break forth into joy; sing together ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem;

Mosiah 12:23, Mosiah 15:30, 3 Nephi 16:19, 3 Nephi 20:34.

21. The phrase how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet is used five times in the Book of Mormon, starting with Mosiah 12:21.

22.  The imperative lift up your heads is given five times in the Book of Mormon beginning with 2 Nephi 9:3.  It is followed by phrases such as rejoice and be comforted.

23.  Tzedakah means charity, and the religious obligation to perform charity.  It is based on the root tzedek which is justice.  Tzedek also means righteous. 

24.  The phrase as the Lord liveth is given 17 times, starting with 1 Nephi 3:15.

25.  The phrase keep the commandments is given 39 times.

26.  The Lord declares "I am Alpha and Omega" in 3 Nephi 9:18.  The Hebrew is "Ani aleph v'tav."  Aleph and Tav are the first and last letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet, respectively.

27.  The phrases out of bondage and from bondage are used a total of 33 times.

28.  The phrase bands of death is given 12 times.  Christ will break of loosen the bands of death.  See Alma 7:12 and elsewhere.

29.  The phrase come unto me is given 37 times.  In most of these cases, the Lord is inviting us to come unto him.  See Ether 4:13-18 and elsewhere.

30.  The phrase plan of redemption is given 17 times.  See Alma 29:2 for example.

31.  The phrase to the knowledge of the truth is given 14 times.  See Jacob 7:24 for example.

32.  The phrase stand before God is given 8 times, each in reference to judgment.  See Alma 5:15 and elsewhere.

33.  The phrase from the foundation of the world is given 22 times, starting with 2 Nephi 9:18.

The following is from the Midrash, a collection of Jewish stories and teachings which expand upon the Torah.

When the Jews arrived at the Red Sea, with the Egyptian Army in hot pursuit from behind and the sea in front, there was an argument in the Heavenly Court if the Jews were worthy of being saved or not.

While Moses was praying to God for help, Nahshon ben Aminadav decided to take matters into his own hands and leaped into the sea.  Nahshon’s action tipped the scales in the Jews’ favor.

Then God said to Moses, “Stop praying already! Turn around and look at what your friend Nahshon has done. While you stand here praying he is taking some action!” Only then does God part the sea so that the Israelites can cross.

This is what Rebbe Nachman of Breslev calls azut d’kedusha, or boldness for holiness.

The popular Yiddish saying to be a Nahshon means to be an initiator.

* * *

Nahshon was appointed by Moses, upon God’s command, as prince of the Tribe of Judah.  He was, through Boaz, the ancestor of David.

Nahshon is mentioned several times in the Bible.

He brought forth an offering at the dedication of the Tabernacle.

And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah. (Number 7:12)

Nahshon’s name is also given in the New Testament in the genealogy of Jesus of Nazareth. (Matthew 1:4 and Luke 3:32).

Maimonides lists his Eight Levels of Giving, as written in the Mishneh Torah, Hilkhot Matanot Aniyim (Laws about Giving to Poor People), Chapter 10:7-14:

1. Giving an interest-free loan to a person in need; forming a partnership with a person in need; giving a grant to a person in need; finding a job for a person in need; so long as that loan, grant, partnership, or job results in the person no longer living by relying upon others. The Paamonim organization in Israel is based on this principle and provides financial mentoring to families in need.

2. Giving tzedakah anonymously to an unknown recipient via a person (or public fund) which is trustworthy, wise, and can perform acts of tzedakah with your money in a most impeccable fashion.

3. Giving tzedakah anonymously to a known recipient.

4. Giving tzedakah publicly to an unknown recipient.

5. Giving tzedakah before being asked.

6. Giving adequately after being asked.

7. Giving willingly, but inadequately.

8. Giving "in sadness" - it is thought that Maimonides was referring to giving because of the sad feelings one might have in seeing people in need (as opposed to giving because it is a religious obligation; giving out of pity).

"Chessed" - (pl. Chasadim) - an act of kindness. It was said by Shimon HaTzaddik (Simon the Righteous) that the world continues to exist because of three things: Torah Study, the worship of Hashem, and the performance of "gemilut chasadim," "acts of kindness."
Ma'os Chittim
In Orech Chayim 429:7, the Aruch HaShulchan writes: "All of the nation of Israel has the custom (in the month of Nissan) to collect 'Ma'os Chittim' - to purchase flour for the poor for Pesach, or to give them money so they can purchase it for themselves."
The custom of contributing "Ma'os Chittim," literally "money for wheat," is widespread. Not only do we contribute money to provide for the flour (and therefore Matzos) of the poor, but to provide as well for all the needed Pesach provisions.
Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of the Trumpets
Rosh Hashanah began on the evening of September 21, 1827. This is the Jewish New Year.
That evening, prayers were said pleading that God would remember his Covenant People in exile.
The Shofar, which is a trumpet, was blown the following morning in Jewish communites throughout the world. The shofar heralded the period of repentance and preparation for The Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur.
Joseph Smith received the golden plates on this same day that the shofar was sounded, September 22, 1827. The Book of Mormon was taken from these plates.
Prophet Joseph Smith
Joseph Smith wrote, "Those engaged in seeking the outcasts of Israel, and the dispersed of Judah, cannot fail to enjoy the Spirit of the Lord and have the choicest blessings of Heaven rest upon them in copious effusions . . . He [the Lord] will endow you with power, wisdom, might, and intelligence, and every qualification necessary; while your minds will expand wider and wider, until you can circumscribe the earth and the heavens, reach forth into eternity, and contemplate the mighty acts of Jehovah in all their variety and glory" (History of the Church, 4:128-129).
This quote is from a letter to Orson Hyde and John E. Page, dated 14 May 1840.
Prophet Joseph Smith

"A man filled with the love of God, is not content with blessing his family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race." 

Elder Russell M. Nelson

You can invite a friend to read the Book of Mormon. Explain that it is not a novel or a history book. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. Its very purpose is “to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations.”

Each exemplary follower of Jesus Christ can become an effective member missionary. Members and full-time missionaries may walk arm in arm in bringing the blessings of the gospel to cherished friends and neighbors. Many of them are of Israel, now being gathered as promised. This is all part of the preparation for the Second Coming of the Lord.

The Prophet Joseph Smith said "that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." The Book of Mormon teaches of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and is the instrument by which God will fulfill His ancient promise to gather scattered Israel in these latter days.

(Be Thou an Example of the Believers, October 2010 General Conference)

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland  
"In so many ways, Jerusalem ... constitutes the scene, the setting and the circumference of our religious heritage," Holland recently told a new group of 44 students at the church's Jerusalem center. "The origins of our sacred texts all focus us here."

I admonish you, O Israel, search the scriptures; read them in your homes; teach your families what the Lord has said, and let us spend less of our time reading the unimportant and often harmful literature of the day, and go to the fountain of truth and read the word of the Lord.

An American Girl, The Problems of Prejudice

If a Jew has no one to quarrel with, he quarrels with God, and we call it theology; or he quarrels with himself, and we call it psychology. Or he quarrels with the psychoanalyst, and we call it literature.

Two Jews and three opinions are better that three Jews with no opinions. Passionate arguments are better than passionless acceptance.

- Elie Wiesel

Note that the name Israel literaly means struggled with God.

Abraham debated the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah with God.

Jacob wrestled with an angel.

When the Lord threatened to consume the children of Israel after the golden calf incident, Moses countered, then "blot me out of thy book which thou hast written."

Even Tevye the milkman in Fiddler on the Roof declared to God: "Sometimes I think, when it gets too quiet up there, You say to Yourself, 'What kind of mischief can I play on My friend Tevye?' " Tevye remained a friend to God even as he and his family and neighbors were driven out of their shtetl Anatevka.

Jews come to know God through their struggles and quarrels with God.

Judaism is a robust religion that encourages and thrives on spirited debate.

Judaism has a continuous 3000 year history.

Even during the so-called Dark Ages, Judaism had great rabbi-philosophers such as Rashi, Maimonides and Nachmanides.

Living a Life that Matters by Harold S. Kushner
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." -- Let's do this...

by William Hutchinson Murray and inspired by the writings of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.

- Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

The collective consciousness of society moves and evolves through time, perhaps blinded with this idea that now we have it all figured out. 

And then there are the people who see things a little differently. The people who can see what other people do not see. And these are the heretics, the brave souls who drive the collective consciousness forward.

The world needs free thinkers to help it to evolve, no matter how hard it pushes back. In speaking your truth, you will likely meet resistance.

There will be people who will feel threatened by what you have to say. Keep on saying it. In being true to who you are, there will be people who will be threatened by your courage…be who you are anyway.

Have faith in who you are. Have faith in what you have to say. You are the salt of the earth, the breath of fresh air, and the balancing force of the world.

As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked
why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively:
“We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.”

- Barbara Ordman

Integrity is the courage to do right regardless
of the consequences and the inconvenience.

Gamaliel on the trial of Peter and the Apostles before a council, from Acts 5….

38) And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
39) But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

Moroni 7:16


And again, I exhort you, my brethren, that ye deny not the gifts of God, for they are many; and they come from the same God. And there are different ways that these gifts are administered; but it is the same God who worketh all in all; and they are given by the manifestations of the Spirit of God unto men, to profit them.

Moroni 10:8

Thus we see that the Lord worketh in many ways to the salvation of his people.

Alma 24:27

For it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of inspiration. 

Moses 6:5

[14] Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
[15] And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
[16] And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
[17] And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

2 Kings 6

And now, if I have no authority for these things, judge ye; for ye shall know that I have authority when ye shall see me, and we shall stand before God at the last day.

Ether 5:6
