Chiasmus is a literary form which is used extensively in the Bible. The structure of the chiasmus comprises sets of identical or related words, phrases or concepts; the second set is a repetition of the first, but it is used in inverse order, as A,B - B,A. Matthew 19:30 contains a well-known chiasmus: But many that are the first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

The Legacy of the Brass Plates of Laban is an in-depth study of the differences between the Book of Mormon and King James Bible Isaiahs.

The other three chapters were from Mormon's abridgement of the words of Abinadi (Mosiah 14) and from the words of the Savior (3 Nephi 2 and 22). Click here for more.
