Isaiah 14: Israel will be gathered and enjoy millennial rest—Lucifer was cast out of heaven for rebellion—Israel will triumph over Babylon (the world)—Compare 2 Nephi 24.
Isaiah 24: Men will transgress the law and break the everlasting covenant—At the Second Coming, they will be burned, the earth will reel, and the sun will be ashamed—Then the Lord will reign in Zion and in Jerusalem.

Isaiah 27: The people of Israel will blossom and bud and fill the earth with fruit—They will be gathered one by one and will worship the Lord.
