Almost missed it

We're very grateful that the tools used by help in checking our work. It was discovered last week that some text in 2 Nephi was completely missing! We want everyone to be aware of it and to know that it was not an intentional deletion. For those with paperback copies of the scriptures, the following sentences may be missing:

2 Nephi 5:5
For shall the prey be taken from the mighty? Or the lawful captive delivered?

These should be the last sentences in paragraph 5. 

The explanation for why it was missing is unclear. Simple keystrokes during editing, for example, or during formatting could account for it. We don't know how it happened. We're just grateful that it was caught.
