Jerusalem in the BoM



Funny, for a so-called Jewish/Israelish people that the BoM people were supposed to be, how they forgot Jerusalem, Zion, the priesthood, God. Is there any evidence that they kept the Sabbath? Kept kosher? Are any Levites or cohens (priests) ever mentioned?

Did any BoMer ever make mention of his longing or sadness over the fate of Jerusalem? Here’s a small sample from the Bible, of what I mean;

In the OT:
Psa 137:1By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
Psa 137:2We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
Psa 137:3For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] mirth, [saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion.
Psa 137:4How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?
Psa 137:5If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget [her cunning].
Psa 137:6If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

In the NT:
Luk 19:41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
Luk 19:42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things [which belong] unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Luk 19:43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
Luk 19:44And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Can any mormon show us, where in the BoM it says to keep kosher? To follow Sabbath laws? That a Levite or cohen presided over religious observances? That they practiced & had typical Hebrew holy days; like Passover, Tabernacles, Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah? Did they ever mention the Ten Commandments? Or that they were slaves in Egypt? Just wondering if you can show us some chapter & verses here from the BoM to prove your point?
