Pergunta: Será que o Livro de Mórmon frase "obra curiosa" originam de ''A Última Guerra'' por Gilbert Hunt?
Question: Does the Book of Mormon phrase "curious workmanship" originate from Gilbert Hunt's The Late War?
Critics' comparison: It is claimed that both books mention weapons of war of “curious workmanship” 
- Book of Mormon, Ether 10:27: And ... weapons of war ... of exceedingly curious workmanship
- The Late War 19:13: And ... weapons of war were of curious workmanship
Full context comparison: The Book of Mormon does not talk of weapons of war of curious workmanship
27 And they did make all manner of weapons of war. And they did work all manner of work of exceedingly curious workmanship.
The Late War Chapter 19 (p. 67):
13 And their weapons of war were of curious workmanship, and they sent forth balls of lead; such as were unknown to Pharaoh when he followed the Children of Israel down into the red sea.
Note that the Book of Mormon mentions weapons, and then mentions additional objects that were of "curious workmanship." The Late War, on the other hand, is describing weapons of war (in this case guns that fire "balls of lead") as being perceived to be of "curious workmanship." The presentation of the Book of Mormon passage, however, is altered by the critics to make it appear that the Book of Mormon is talking about "weapons of war....of exceedingly curious workmanship." This is done in an attempt to enhance the perceived similarity of the passages.
