Reference Search: Jacob 5:63

63 Graft in the branches; begin at the last that they may be first, and that the first may be last, and dig about the trees, both old and young, the first and the last; and the last and the first, that all may be nourished once again for the last time.

Quote for Discussion

In our day the message of the Restoration is taken first to the Gentiles (Israelites scattered among and identified with the Gentiles) and then to the house of Israel, meaning specifically the Lamanites and the Jews. Thus the first (the Jews) shall, in the last days, be last; and the last (the Gentiles), shall, in the final dispensation, be first.

Millet & McConkie, Doctrinal Commentary on the BOM, Vol. 2, p. 71
