9:6 You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, 1 along with all their multitude of stars, 2 the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You impart life to them all, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.
9:32 “So now, our God – the great, powerful, and awesome God, who keeps covenant fidelity 3 – do not regard as inconsequential 4 all the hardship that has befallen us – our kings, our leaders, our priests, our prophets, our ancestors, and all your people – from the days of the kings of Assyria until this very day!
