Mother Earth in 2nd Nephi – Mormon Quotes

2 Nephi 9:7; Wherefore, it must needs be an infinite atonement—save it should be an infinite atonement this corruption could not put on incorruption. Wherefore, the first judgment which came upon man must needs have remained to an endless duration. And if so, this flesh must have laid down to rot and to crumble to its mother earth, to rise no more.

Jeremiah 7:18-20The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.  19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?  20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

The Lord described the Mormon people when He said they have a look of confusion on their faces.

Ironically enough the book of 2nd Nephi supposedly took place at the same time of Jeremiah. He destroyed Jerusalem for worshipping the earth – the Nephites left and here they are using the same terminology the Israelites were at the time of the destruction.
