Re: Angelic Quotes

First of all: what is DSS?  I assume you checked the Hebrew sources to 
see what was going on in the Septuagint.  The LXX is not always a 
corruption when it is in disagreement with the Hebrew.  The writer of 
Apocalypse might have been quoting from memory, also: if you'll note,
both passages are compatible: Psalms seems to imply a ruler, and
Apocalypse has breaking.  Just a casual observation without my sources
handy.  In case it might be helpful.  Also, I'm not in on your allusion 
to Joseph Smith.  Is it a quote from the LXX in the Book of Mormon?
