Bible verses about "outer space" | ISV

Genesis 1:14-19

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.

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.

Genesis 1:2-3

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.

Psalms 19:1-6

1 To the Director: A Davidic Psalm. The heavens are declaring the glory of God, and their expanse shows the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech, night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor are there words {— } their voice is not heard {— } 4 yet their message goes out into all the world, and their words to the ends of the earth. He has set up a tent for the sun in the heavens, 5 which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, or like a champion who rejoices at the beginning of a race. 6 Its circuit is from one end of the sky to the other, and nothing is hidden from its heat.

Psalms 147:4

4 He keeps track of the number of stars, assigning names to all of them.

Psalms 104:1-35

1 Davidic. Bless the LORD, My soul; LORD, my God, you are very great. You are clothed in splendor and majesty; 2 you are wrapped in light like a garment, stretching out the sky like a curtain. 3 He lays the beams of his roof loft on the water above, making clouds his chariot, walking on the wings of the wind. 4 He makes the winds his messengers, blazing fires his servants. 5 He established the earth on its foundations, so that it never falters. 6 You covered the primeval ocean like a garment; the water stood above the mountains. 7 They flee at your rebuke; they rush away at the sound of your thunders. 8 Mountains rise up and valleys sink to the place you have ordained for them. 9 You have set a boundary they cannot cross; they will never again cover the earth. 10 He causes springs to gush forth into rivers that flow between the mountains. 11 They give water for animals of the field to drink; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. 12 Birds of the sky live beside them and chirp a song among the foliage. 13 He waters the mountains from his heavenly rooms; the earth is satisfied from the fruit of your work. 14 He causes grass to sprout for the cattle and plants for people to cultivate, to produce food from the land, 15 like wine that makes the heart of people happy, oil that makes the face glow, and food that sustains people. 16 The loftiest trees are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted, 17 the birds build their nests there, and the heron builds its nest among the evergreen. 18 The high mountains are for wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the rock badger. 19 He made the moon to mark time; the sun knows its setting time. 20 You bring darkness and it becomes night; when every beast of the forest prowls. 21 Young lions roar for prey, seeking their food from God. 22 When the sun rises, they gather and lie down in their dens. 23 People go out to their work and labor until evening. 24 How numerous are your works, LORD! You have made them all wisely; the earth is filled with your creations. 25 There is the deep and wide sea, teeming with numberless creatures, living things small and great. 26 There, the ships pass through; Leviathan, which you created, frolics in it. 27 All of them look to you to provide them their food at the proper time. 28 They receive what you give them; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. 29 When you withdraw your favor, they are disappointed; Take away their breath, and they die and return to dust. 30 When you send your spirit, they are created, and you replenish the surface of the earth. 31 May the glory of the LORD last forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works! 32 He looks at the earth and it shakes; he touches the mountains and they smoke. 33 I will sing to the LORD with my whole being; I will sing to my God continuously! 34 May my thoughts be pleasing to him; indeed, I will rejoice in the LORD! 35 May sinners disappear from the land and the wicked live no longer. Bless the LORD, My soul! Hallelujah!
