  • ... interesting comment about CYRUS in a related article ...

    This is what God is saying about Cyrus the Great in the Hebrew Bible!

    "Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut ;
