Genesis 1:14-19

14 And God said, "Let there be lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to separate day from night,* and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, 15 and they shall be as lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 And God made two lights,* the greater light* to rule* the day and the smaller light* to rule* the night, and the stars. 17 And God placed them in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate light from 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 heavens and the earth— 2 Now* the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface 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 caused there to be a separation between the light and between the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a vaulted dome* in the midst of the waters, and let it cause a separation between the waters."* 7 So* God made the vaulted dome,* and he caused a separation between the waters which were under the vaulted dome* and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome.* And it was so. 8 And God called the vaulted dome* "heaven."* And there was evening, and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters under heaven* be gathered to one place, and let the dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 And God called the dry ground "earth," and he called the collection of the waters "seas." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce green plants that will bear seed—fruit trees bearing fruit in which there is seed*—according to its* kind, on the earth." And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth green plants bearing seed according to its* kind, and trees bearing fruit in which there was seed* according to 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 vaulted dome* of heaven* to separate day from night,* and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, 15 and they shall be as lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 And God made two lights,* the greater light* to rule* the day and the smaller light* to rule* the night, and the stars. 17 And God placed them in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate light from 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 birds fly over the earth across the face of the vaulted dome* of heaven.* 21 So* God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kind, and every bird with wings according to 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 the birds multiply on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind: cattle and moving things, and wild animals* according to their kind." And it was so. 25 So* God made wild animals* according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make humankind in* our image and according to* our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven,* and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth." 27 So* God created humankind in* his image, in* the likeness of God he created him,* male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of heaven,* and over every animal that moves upon the earth." 29 And God said, "Look—I am giving to you every plant that bears seed which is on the face of the whole earth, and every kind of tree that bears fruit.* They shall be yours as food." 30 And to every kind of animal of the earth and to every bird of heaven,* and to everything that moves upon the earth in which there is life I am giving every green plant as food." And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning, a sixth day.

Genesis 1:2-3

2 Now* the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light!" And there was light.

Job 26:7

7 He stretches out the north over emptiness; he hangs the earth over nothing.*

Isaiah 40:22

22 He is the one who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; the one who stretches out the heavens like a veil and spreads them out like a tent to live in,

2 Corinthians 12:2

2 I know a man in Christ fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or outside the body I do not know, God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven,

Psalms 8:3

3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you set in place—

Psalms 19:1-6

1 For the music director. A psalm of David.*
The heavens are telling the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims the work of his hands. 2 Every day* they pour forth speech, and every night* they tell knowledge. 3 There is no speech and there are no words; their sound is inaudible. 4 Yet in all the world their line* goes out, and their words to the end of the world. In them* he has pitched a tent for the sun, 5 and it is like a bridegroom who comes out of his bridal chamber. It is glad like a strong man to run its course. 6 Its rising is from one* end of the heavens and its circuit to the other end* of them; and nothing is hidden from its heat.

Psalms 147:4

4 He counts the number of the stars; he gives names to all of them.

Psalms 104:1-35

1 Bless Yahweh, O my soul. O Yahweh my God, you are very great. You clothe yourself with splendor and majesty, 2 you who cover yourself with light as with a garment, who stretch out the heavens like a tent curtain, 3 the one who sets beams in the waters for his upper chambers, who makes clouds his chariot, who rides* on the wings of the wind, 4 who makes his messengers the winds, his attendants a flame of fire. 5 He established the earth on her foundations, so that it will not be moved forever and ever. 6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment. The waters stood above the mountains. 7 At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they ran off. 8 They ascended the mountains and drained though the valleys to the place that you established* for them. 9 You set a boundary that they may not cross over, so that they would not return to cover the earth. 10 You are the one who sends forth springs into the valleys; they flow between the mountains. 11 They give drink for every beast of the field. The wild donkeys quench* their thirst. 12 Along them the birds of the heavens abide. From among the branches they sing.* 13 You are the one who waters* the mountains from his upper chambers. The earth is full* with the fruit of your labors: 14 who causes grass to grow for the cattle and herbs for the service of humankind, to bring forth food from the earth, 15 and wine that makes glad the heart of man, so that their faces shine from oil, and bread that strengthens the heart of man. 16 The trees of Yahweh drink their fill, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted, 17 where birds make their nest. The stork has its home in the fir trees. 18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers. 19 He made the moon for appointed times; the sun knows its time for setting. 20 You make darkness, and it is night, when* all the animals of the forest creep about. 21 The young lions are roaring for the prey and seeking their food from God. 22 When the sun rises, they gather together and lie down in their dens. 23 Humankind goes out to its work, and to its labor until evening. 24 How many are your works, O Yahweh; all of them you have done in wisdom. The earth is full of your creatures. 25 This is the great and wide* sea, in which are moving animals without number, living things small and great. 26 There the ships sail. Leviathan is there that you formed to play with.* 27 They all wait for you to give them their food at the proper time.* 28 You give to them; they gather it. You open your hand, they are filled with what is good. 29 You hide your face, they are terrified. You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 30 You send forth your Spirit,* they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. 31 May the glory of Yahweh endure forever. May Yahweh be glad in his works, 32 the one who looks at the earth and it quakes, and touches the mountains and they smoke. 33 I will sing to Yahweh throughout my life; I will sing praise to my God while I remain alive.* 34 May my meditation be pleasing to him. I will be glad in Yahweh. 35 Let sinners perish completely from the earth, and the wicked not remain alive.* Bless Yahweh, O my soul. Praise Yah.*

Psalms 19:1

1 For the music director. A psalm of David.*
The heavens are telling the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims the work of his hands.

Genesis 1:1

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth—

26 Lift your eyes up on high, and see! Who created these? The one who brings out their host by number. He calls all them by name. Because he is great of power and mighty of power, no man is missing.

Psalms 8:3-4

3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you set in place— 4 what is a human being that you think of him? and a child of humankind that you care for him?
