Nephi Plagiarizes King Solomon

29 May

2 Nephi 4:5 “But behold, my sons and my daughters, I cannot go down to my grave save I should leave a blessing upon you; for behold, I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go ye will not depart from it.” c. BC 588-570

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

It seems Joe Smith knew no bounds when it came to plagiarizing various Bible authors. This time around he went so far as to plagiarize the King of Israel, no less. Sigh…

King Solomon wrote this proverb during his reign c. BC 970 – 930 (Prov. 1:1). If these so-called Nephites were truly Israelites, they sure didn’t show it by lifting passages of the wisest man God ever created!

If you’re LDS, what do you think?

With Love in Christ;


1 Cor. 1:18
