First Nephi 6 is an early Book of Mormon example of Joseph Smith, Jr. straining for ‘filler material,’ as the chapter is devoid of any useful information.

Except, perhaps, the value of stating that it contains non-useful information.

Nephi/Joseph Smith, Jr. wanted to make certain the reader knew he had nothing to write here; and that it was strangely important enough to etch in metal plates.
