The Setting Sun

“I am the LORD, and there is no other;
Besides Me there is no God
I will gird you, though you have not known Me;
That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
That there is no one besides Me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other,
The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing well-being and creating calamity;
I am the LORD who does all these.” Isaiah 45:5-7
This text has been somewhat problematic due to the “creating calamity” part of it. I suppose that He is God and we are not and that’s good enough for me.
