Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 When the earth was unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters, 3 God said, "Let there be light!" So there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness, 5 calling the light "day," and the darkness "night." The twilight and dawn were day one. 6 Then God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water!" 7 So God made the expanse, separating the water beneath the expanse from the water above it. And so it was. 8 God called the expanse "sky." The twilight and the dawn were the second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water beneath the sky come together into one area, and let dry ground appear!" And so it was. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and he called the water that had come together "oceans." And God saw how good it was. 11 Then God said, "Let vegetation sprout all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed!" And so it was: 12 Vegetation sprouted all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed. And God saw that it was good. 13 The twilight and the dawn were the third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish day from night, to act as signs for seasons, days, and years, 15 to serve as lights in the expanse of the sky, and to shine on the earth!" And so it was. 16 God fashioned two great lights {— } the larger light to illumine the day and the smaller light to illumine the night {— } as well as the stars. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to illumine both day and night, and to distinguish light from darkness. And God saw how good it was. 19 The twilight and the dawn were the fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the oceans swarm with myriads of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth throughout the sky!" 21 So God created every kind of magnificent sea creature, every kind of living sea crawler with which the waters swarmed, and every kind of flying bird. And God saw how good it was. 22 God blessed them by saying, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the oceans. Let the birds multiply throughout the earth!" 23 The twilight and the dawn were the fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth each kind of living creature, each kind of livestock and crawling thing, and each kind of wild animal!" And so it was. 25 God made each kind of wild animal, along with every kind of livestock and crawling thing. And God saw how good it was. 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!" 27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created him; he created them male and female. 28 God blessed these humans by saying to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and be master over it! Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!" 29 God also told them, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows throughout the earth, along with every tree that grows seed-bearing fruit. They shall produce your food. 30 I have given all green plants as food for every wild animal of the earth, every bird that flies, and to every living thing that crawls on the earth." And so it was. 31 Now God saw all that he had made, and, indeed, it was very good! The twilight and the dawn were the sixth day.

Job 26:7-14

7 he spreads out the north over empty space, suspending the earth over nothing. 8 "He restricts the waters within clouds and the clouds don't burst open under them. 9 He has enclosed the face of the full moon and spread his clouds over it. 10 He has delimited a boundary over the surface of the oceans as a limit between light and darkness. 11 The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astounded at his rebuke. 12 By his power he disturbs the sea; and with his skill he shatters the sea monster. 13 he clears the skies with his wind; his hands have pierced the fleeing serpent. 14 Indeed, these are the fringes of his ways, and how faint is the whisper we've heard of it! But who can comprehend the thunder of his might?"

Proverbs 8:27

27 when he crafted the heavens, I was there {— } when he marked out a circle on the face of the deep,

Genesis 1:27

27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created him; he created them male and female.

1 Timothy 6:20

20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the pointless discussions and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge.

Ecclesiastes 1:13-17

13 I dedicated myself to using wisdom for study and discovery of everything that is done under heaven. God uses terrible things so human beings will struggle with life. 14 I observed every activity done on earth. My conclusion: all of it is pointless {— } like chasing after the wind. 15 What is crooked cannot be made straight; what is not there cannot be counted. 16 I told myself, "I have become greater and wiser than anyone who ruled before me in Jerusalem {— } yes, I have acquired a great deal of wisdom and knowledge." 17 So I dedicated myself to learn about wisdom and knowledge, and about insanity and foolishness. And I discovered that this is also like chasing after the wind.

Ecclesiastes 1:6-7

6 The wind continuously blows southward, then northward, constantly circulating; and the wind comes back again in its courses. 7 All the rivers flow toward the sea, but the sea is never full; then rivers return to the headwaters where they began.

Isaiah 40:12

Job 38:4-30

4 "Where were you when I laid the foundation of my earth? Tell me, since you're so informed! 5 Who set its measurement? Shall I assume you know? Who stretched a boundary line over it? 6 On what were its bases set? Who laid its corner stone 7 while the morning stars sang together and all the divine beings shouted joyfully? 8 "Who enclosed the sea with limits when it gushed out of the womb, 9 when I made clouds to be its clothes and thick darkness its swaddling blanket, 10 when I proscribed a boundary for it, set in place bars and doors for it; 11 and said, 'You may come only this far and no more. Your majestic waves will stop here.'? 12 "Have you ever commanded the morning at any time during your life? Do you know where the dawn lives, 13 where it seizes the edge of the earth and shakes the wicked out of it? 14 Like clay is molded by a signet ring, the earth's hills and valleys then stand out like the colors of a garment. 15 Then from the wicked their light is withheld and their upraised arm is broken. 16 "Have you been to to the source of the sea and walked about in the recesses of the deepest ocean? 17 Have you the gates of death been revealed to you? Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness? 18 Do you understand the breadth of the earth? Tell me, since you know it all! 19 "Where is the road to where the light lives? Or where does the darkness live? 20 Can you take it to its homeland, since you know the path to his house? 21 You should know! After all, you had been born back then, so the number of your days is great! 22 "Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen where the hail is stored, 23 which I've reserved for the tribulation to come, for the day of battle and war? 24 Where is the lightning diffused or the east wind scattered around the earth? 25 "Who cuts canals for storm floods, and paths for the lightning and thunder, 26 to bring rain upon a land without inhabitants, a desert in which no human beings live, 27 to satisfy a desolate and devastated desert, causing it to sprout vegetation? 28 "Does the rain have a father? Who fathered the dew? 29 Whose womb brings forth the ice? Who gives birth to frost out of an empty sky, 30 when water solidifies like stone and the surface of the deepest sea freezes?

Psalms 111:2

2 ({ β} - [Gimmel.]) Great are the acts of the LORD;
({ γ} - [Daleth.]) they are within reach of all who desire them.
