Reading the Isaiah chapters that Nephi recorded through the lens of “the Nephite Prophetic View” can illuminate what Nephi understood of Isaiah’s prophecies and how he likened them to his own prophetic vision.
The second stage of this prophetic worldview involves the Jews rejecting Christ the Lord and his teachings and their subsequent scattering throughout the world. This process encompasses those who were scattered both before and after the coming of Jesus Christ. The Lord communicated through the prophets the reality of the scattering of the House of Israel. At the same time, God promised that he would not forget his people and those who would have him as their God, no matter where they found themselves.
