Thank you for the help. Now I'm stuck on why God writes something other than what he means. If God meant "fallen angels" or "dispersion of good & truth," why didn't He just write that instead of "stars?" Who are we to tell God what He means when He writes a word? The Almighty writes an Infallible Word like "stars" and we tell Him He really meant something else. I wouldn't presume to correct His writing....
