2 Nephi 6:2 Behold, my beloved brethren, that I Jacob having been called of God and ordained after the manner of his holy order and having been consecrated by my brother Nephi, unto whom ye look as a king or a protector and on whom ye depend for safety, behold, ye know that I have spoken unto you exceeding many things.
2 Nephi 6:3 Nevertheless I speak unto you again, for I am desirous for the welfare of your souls. Yea, mine anxiety is great for you.

2 Nephi 6:4 And now behold, I would speak unto you concerning things which are and which are to come. Wherefore I will read you the words of Isaiah, and they are the words which my brother hath desired me that I should speak unto you. And I speak them unto you for your sakes, that ye may learn and glorify the name of your God.
2 Nephi 6:5 And now the words which I shall read are they which Isaiah spake concerning all the house of Israel. Wherefore they may be likened unto you, for ye are of the house of Israel. And there are many things which have been spoken by Isaiah which may be likened unto you because that ye are of the house of Israel.
