"None shall slumber nor sleep," 2 Nephi 15:27

2 Nephi 15:27

"None shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken; "

A fresh reading of this verse, simply illustrates how quickly the traveling process will become. The travel shall become quick enough to not require sleep. "The girdle of their loins," this is a belt. "Latchet of their shoes" shoe buckle or anything else used to fasten a shoe. It simply seems to me that the point that Isaiah is trying to communicate here, is that travel will allow people to gather so quickly in the last days that it can be accomplished in less than a day. Such a concept was completely unfathomable even 60 years ago. In the history of the world, 60 years is a considerably small time frame.
