The Book of Mormon and the Epistles of Peter


I Peter 1:8 ...ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Helaman 5:44 ...and they were filled with that joy which is unspeakable and full of glory.
I Peter 1:11 ...for so an entrance...into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I Nephi 13:37 ...and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb...
I Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins...being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit... II Nephi 2:8 ...and grace of the Holy Messiah, who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit...
II Peter 1:13 ...to stir you up by putting you in remembrance... I Nephi 2:24 ..to stir them up in the ways of remembrance.
II Nephi 5:25 ...to stir them up in remembrance of me...
Mosiah 1:17 ...to stir them up in remembrance of their duty.
Mosiah 6:3 ...and to stir them up in remembrance of the oath which they had made...
Alma 4:19 ...to stir them up in remembrance of their duty...
Alma 25:6 ...to be stirred up in remembrance of the words which Aaron and his brethren had preached to them...
Helaman 11:4 ...to stir them up in remembrance of the Lord their God...
Helaman 11:34 ...did stir them up again in remembrance of the Lord their God.
II Peter 2:22 ...The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. III Nephi 7:8 ...like the dog to his vomit, or like the sow to her wallowing in the mire.
II Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. III Nephi 26:3 ...even until the elements should melt with fervent heat, and the earth should be wrapt together as a scroll, and the heavens and the earth should pass away...
Mormon 9:2 Behold, will ye believe in the day of your visitation--behold, when the Lord shall come, yea, even that great day when the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat...
II Peter 3:16 ...which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Alma 13:20 ...Behold, the scriptures are before you; if ye will wrest them it shall be to your own destruction.

The words 'dog', 'vomit', 'sow' (female pig) and 'wallowing' (II Peter 2:22) all appear only once in the Book of Mormon. The word 'mire' is used twice, once in a quotation from the Old Testament (II Nephi 20:6).

The words 'fervent' and 'elements' (II Peter 3:10) are each used only twice in the Book of Mormon, both times together in the same phrase.

The word 'wrest' (II Peter 3:16) is found only once in the Book of Mormon. (The word was mispelled 'arrest' in the 1830 version.)
