Genesis 1:14-19

14 And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.' And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. 3 And God said: 'Let there be light.' And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 And God said: 'Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.' 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said: 'Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.' And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said: 'Let the earth put forth grass, herb yielding seed, and fruit-tree bearing fruit after its kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth.' And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herb yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.' And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 And God said: 'Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let fowl fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.' 21 And God created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature that creepeth, wherewith the waters swarmed, after its kind, and every winged fowl after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying: 'Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.' 23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said: 'Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind.' And it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.' 27 And God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. 28 And God blessed them; and God said unto them: 'Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that creepeth upon the earth.' 29 And God said: 'Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed - to you it shall be for food; 30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is a living soul, I have given every green herb for food.' And it was so. 31 And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Genesis 1:2-3

Psalms 19:1-6

1 (19:1) For the Leader. A Psalm of David. (19:2) The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork; 2 (19:3) Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night revealeth knowledge; 3 (19:4) There is no speech, there are no words, neither is their voice heard. 4 (19:5) Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tent for the sun, 5 (19:6) Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course. 6 (19:7) His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it; and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

4 He counteth the number of the stars; He giveth them all their names.

Psalms 104:1-35

1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, Thou art very great; Thou art clothed with glory and majesty. 2 Who coverest Thyself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain; 3 Who layest the beams of Thine upper chambers in the waters, who makest the clouds Thy chariot, who walkest upon the wings of the wind; 4 Who makest winds Thy messengers, the flaming fire Thy ministers. 5 Who didst establish the earth upon its foundations, that it should not be moved for ever and ever; 6 Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains. 7 At Thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of Thy thunder they hasted away - 8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down - unto the place which Thou hadst founded for them; 9 Thou didst set a bound which they should not pass over, that they might not return to cover the earth. 10 Who sendest forth springs into the valleys; they run between the mountains; 11 They give drink to every beast of the field, the wild asses quench their thirst. 12 Beside them dwell the fowl of the heaven, from among the branches they sing. 13 Who waterest the mountains from Thine upper chambers; the earth is full of the fruit of Thy works. 14 Who causeth the grass to spring up for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; to bring forth bread out of the earth, 15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, making the face brighter than oil, and bread that stayeth man's heart. 16 The trees of the LORD have their fill, the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted; 17 Wherein the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir-trees are her house. 18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies. 19 Who appointedst the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth his going down. 20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God. 22 The sun ariseth, they slink away, and couch in their dens. 23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. 24 How manifold are Thy works, O LORD! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; the earth is full of Thy creatures. 25 Yonder sea, great and wide, therein are creeping things innumerable, living creatures, both small and great. 26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom Thou hast formed to sport therein. 27 All of them wait for Thee, that Thou mayest give them their food in due season. 28 Thou givest it unto them, they gather it; Thou openest Thy hand, they are satisfied with good. 29 Thou hidest Thy face, they vanish; Thou withdrawest their breath, they perish, and return to their dust. 30 Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created; and Thou renewest the face of the earth. 31 May the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in His works! 32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke. 33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. 34 Let my musing be sweet unto Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD. 35 Let sinners cease out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul. Hallelujah.

Psalms 8:3-4

3 (8:4) When I behold Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast established; 4 (8:5) What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou thinkest of him?
