Man’s light will be darkened by the Lord’s presence - Isa 13:8-9; Mk 13:24-26. Joseph’s dream: Gn 37:9-11. Stars were the off-springs of the SUN and MOON.

(70) = 7 x 10: A fulfillment of God’s teaching to you. It takes 70 (spiritual) years to get you out of Babylon. So, 30 represents “what He’s telling you” and 70 represents “the time taken”. = God showing your earthliness to you (i.e. (see YOURSELF ) and it’s multiplied by His Grace (the number 5).
