Nearest Unto the Throne of God
Abraham has a vision of stars. The lexicon of the visionary men suggests that these are angel-priests. The use of the words "governing ones" and "order" tend to confirm that view. Also, the final phrase of verse 3, "I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest," says that Abraham is standing on a star... which tells us that we're not being told facts about physical space, but about something else.
