|“People of '''ANTINEPHILEHI'''”, subjects of No. 1, also called [[ANTINEPHILEHIES|A<small>NTINEPHILEHIES</small>]] (q.v.) ([http://scriptures.lds.org/en/alma/24/1#1 Alma 24:1]; [http://scriptures.lds.org/en/alma/43/11#11 43:11])
When analyzing this composite name, the first question that should be asked is whether the first element, ''anti'', is a translation or whether it is a transliteration of a [[NEPHITE(S)|N<small>EPHITE</small>]] word.
If ''anti'' is a translation, the meaning could be “facing Nephi-Lehi,” from the Hebrew word that means approximately “''anti'',” (''neged''), i.e., “facing, opposite, etc.” (HWN). It is the Hebrew Vorlage in [http://scriptures.lds.org/en/gen/2/18#18 Genesis 2:18] of “help meet.” (The Greek Vorlage of English “''anti''” can mean “opposite, against, in exchange, instead, representing, rivaling, simulating.” See OED.) Perhaps from such considerations, it has been suggested that the significance of A<small>NTINEPHILEHI</small> is “those who imitate the teachings of the descendants of [[NEPHI|N<small>EPHI</small>]] and [[LEHI|L<small>EHI</small>]]” (Ludlow, A Companion to Your Study of the Book of Mormon, 210).
It has also been suggested, *without attestation, that “Anta-Anti,” is an old Indian word, “a mountain region in the land of Nephi in the land of Lehi” (CBM, III, 366).
