The Tale of Friends

Behold, Ether saw the days of Christ, and
he spake concerning a New Jerusalem
upon this land. And he spake also concerning
the house of Israel, and the Jerusalem
from whence Lehi should come–after it should be
destroyed it should be built up again,
a holy city unto the Lord;

Wherefore, it could not be a new Jerusalem
for it had been in a time of old; but it should
be built up again, and become a holy city
of the Lord; and it should be built unto the house
of Israel. And that a new Jerusalem should be built
upon this land, unto the remnant of the seed of Joseph, for which
things there has been a type.

For as Joseph brought his father down
into the land of Egypt, even so he died there; wherefore,
the Lord brought a remnant of the seed of Joseph out
of the land of Jerusalem, that he might be
merciful unto the seed of Joseph that they should perish not,
even as he was merciful unto the father of Joseph
that he should perish not.

ETHER 13:4-7
