1st Nephi 1 : 2
Yea, I make a record in the language of my father, which consists of the learning of the Jews and the language of the Egyptians.
I’m writing these inspirational memoirs using a type of crazy shorthand that my Dad taught me. It’s basically Egyptian hieroglyphics that we’ve tweaked to read more like our own language. And believe me it beats hammering out every little Hebrew letter on these flimsy plates. The things we do to immortalize our words.
