I don’t know where the word ‘placed’ and the singular came from? Or leaving it implying male only, not that you can think that way reading the Bible i.e. God is He etc. (Do I have, to write these obviously-s?). Plus 'over you'. One 'over' another... oh no no.

Statements that I believe to be biblically true (with one or two, in prayerful consideration about).
