Definitions of Words in Isaiah

These are the definitions for various words in the Chapters of Isaiah. I’m working on a translation of the Book of Mormon Isaiah scriptures to help me clarify its meaning. I hope to have it finished in the next few weeks.

The purpose of this list is to help to understand the spiritual and literal meaning behind Isaiah’s writings. These definitions have come to me through study and personal revelation. Decide for yourself whether it is correct and receive your own witness.
