In the discussion following Lawrence's first post, did anyone try to answer
his question?

>destruction by the Chaldeans and Israel's enemies. I believe Genesis 1:2
describes the
>Earth after the rebellion of  Lucifer and his followers. What linguistic
analysis is
>there that would deny this interpretation?

I'll give it a try:  No linguistic analysis of the text will confirm nor
deny an interpretation concerning "Lucifer and his followers" since they
are present nowhere in the text.

Maybe I misunderstood the question?
