For behold, he truly prophesied concerning all his seed. And the prophecies which he wrote, there are not many greater. And he prophesied concerning us, and our future generations; and they are written upon the plates of brass. 2 Nephi 4.2

This is another powerful reminder of things lost from the Bible, similar to 1 Nephi 20 - Baptism in the Old Testament. As we look at 2 Nephi 3:5, we see a link to the Joseph Smith Translation of Genesis.

24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die, and go unto my fathers; and I go down to my grave with joy. The God of my father Jacob be with you, to deliver you out of affliction in the days of your bondage; for the Lord hath visited me, and I have obtained a promise of the Lord, that out of the fruit of my loins, the Lord God will raise up a righteous branch out of my loins; and unto thee, whom my father Jacob hath named Israel, a prophet; (not the Messiah who is called Shilo;) and this prophet shall deliver my people out of Egypt in the days of thy bondage. JST, Genesis 50.24

Imagine if for 2000 years the entire world knew about this prophecy and the other things in 50:24-38 # Meaning
