He will bring home my exiles. I didn’t hire him to do this. I told him. I, God-of-the-Angel-Armies.”

I made (the) earth, and I made a man on it; mine hands held abroad (the) heavens, and I commanded to all the knighthood of them. (I made the earth, and I made the people on it; my hands spread abroad the heavens, and I commanded to all their host.)
