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?
