1 Nephi 9

Through the Wilderness to the Promised Land

     (1 Nephi )


1 Nephi 9:6 And Thus It Is, Amen:


     Hugh Nibley explains that Egyptian literary writings regularly close with the formula iw-f-pw "thus it is," "and so it is." Nephi ends the main sections of his book with the phrase, "And thus it is, Amen" (1 Nephi 9:6; 14:30; 22:31). [Hugh Nibley, Lehi in the Desert, F.A.R.M.S., p. 17]
