Sorry the dead sea scrolls are considered by most as tainted.
That's why God commands us, "You shall have no other Gods before me" (Exodus 20:3) clearly making a reference to the fact that there are other Gods to consider.
One group does stand out in my opinion and that is the JWs (Jehovah Witnesses). Why? Well because within that group they all believe that only 144,000 can go into the Kingdom of Christ.
Lord is a title with various meanings. It can denote a prince or a feudal superior (especially a feudal tenant who holds directly from the king, i.e., a baron). The title today is mostly used in connection with the peerage of the United Kingdom or its predecessor countries, although some users of the title do not themselves hold peerages, and use it 'by courtesy'. The title may also be used in conjunction with others to denote a superior holder of an otherwise generic title, in such combinations as "Lord Mayor" or "Lord Chief Justice". The title is primarily taken by men, while women will usually take the title 'lady'. However, this is not universal, as the Lord of Mann and female Lord Mayors are examples of women who are styled 'lord'.
In religious contexts Lord can also refer to various different gods or deities. The earliest uses of Lord in the English language in a religious context were by English Bible translators such as Bede. This reflected the Jewish practice of substituting the spoken Hebrew word 'Adonai' (which means 'My Lord') for YHWH when read aloud.

And lastly, The Creator does not get involved in the affairs of mankind, and what you think of as God is one or more ET Beings.

those plagues,but they were supernaturally protected.
Yes, I have considered Hebrew, but the Torah is written in Hebrew, the Bible was first written in Greek. The origin of "Lord" is Old English hlaford, from hlafweard, it means, "bread-keeper," from a Germanic base word.
