Some of the identical words/phrases I have noticed in reading View of the Hebrews listed below:

"curious workmanship"

1 Nephi 18:1
Alma 37:39
Ether 10:27

"hearts burn within you"

"path of their duty"
Book of Mormon Helaman 15:5

"fulfillment of his designs"

"reckoning of time"

Because I have read the Book of Mormon at least 20 times, these phrases were already familiar to me when I read through View of the Hebrews. When I recognized them I jotted them down and looked them up using the LDS scripture software. Most or all of these phrases were not in the Bible.

Either Joseph Smith was familiar with View of the Hebrews or he used phrases popular to the time during his translation process.
