Hello Bryant:

Thanks for your comments.

Please allow me to address the first verse Psalms 90:2.

1. I don't see any word in that verse that contextualizes and specifies עולם
in this instance, as eternal, (as a fact versus theology).

2. I also don't see that יהוה from עולם to עולם precludes a separate
conclusion of יהוה from everlasting to everlasting. Certainly no one
concludes in the verse that יהוה of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, excludes יהוה
of everyone else. exodus 3:15.

regards,

fred burlingame
