Genesis 1:14-19

14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament

Genesis 1:8-31

8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.

Psalms 8:3

3 When I behold the heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and stars which thou hast established,

Psalms 19:1-6

1 For the conclusion. A Psalm by David. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaimeth the work of his hands. 2 Day to day pronounceth a decree; and night to night proclaimeth knowledge. 3 Are they not speeches and are they not words, of which is not their utterance heard? 4 To every land their sound is gone forth: and their doctrines to the limits of the World. 5 In the sun he placed his tabernacle. And he is like a bridegroom coming forth from his chamber. He will rejoice as a giant to run his course. 6 His going forth is from the summit of heaven; and his course is to the summit thereof, and from his heat none can be hid.

Psalms 104:1-35

1 By David. Bless the Lord O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great. Thou hast robed thyself with honour and majesty; 2 clothing thyself with light as with a mantle; stretching out the heaven as a tent. 3 Thou art he who covereth his chambers with waters who maketh clouds his chariot; who walketh on the wings of winds; 4 Who maketh winds his messengers, and flaming fire his ministers; 5 Who founded the earth on its firm basis, that it may not be moved forever. 6 Is the abyss like a garment to be its covering; are waters to stand above the mountains? 7 At thy rebuke they shall flee; at the peal of thy thunder they will tremble. 8 They ascend mountains, they go down vallies; to the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou has set a bound which they shall not pass; nor shall they return to cover the earth.

Psalms 147:4

4 he numbereth the multitudes of stars, and calleth them all by their names.

Psalms 104:10-35

10 Thou art he who sendeth forth springs in vallies. Waters shall flow down between the mountains; 11 and give drink to all the beasts of the field. Wild asses will expect them to quench their thirst. 12 By them the birds of the air will abide: from among the rocks they will utter a sound. 13 Thou art he who watereth mountains from his chambers. With the fruit of thy works the earth will be satisfied. 14 Thou art he who causeth grass to grow for cattle; even verdant grass for the service of man. That he may bring food out of the earth: 15 wine cheereth the heart of man: that he might exhilarate his countenance with oil; the heart of man is strengthened with bread. 16 The trees of the plain shall be fully satisfied; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted. 17 There the birds will build their nests. The family of the stork account them their own. 18 The lofty mountains are for the hinds; a rock is the refuge of the choirogryllus. 19 He hath appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his time for going down. 20 Thou hast stationed darkness and there was night: in it all the beasts of the forest will come forth; 21 Lions roaring for prey, seeking their food from God. 22 When the sun is risen, they will assemble and lay themselves down in their dens; 23 Man will go forth to his labour and continue at it till evening. 24 How manifold are thy works, Lord, with wisdom thou hast done them all. The earth is filled with thy creatures; 25 So is the great and spacious sea: in this are moving things innumerable; living creatures small and great. 26 There ships sail: there is that dragon, which thou hast formed to sport therein. 27 All wait on thee to give them food in due season. 28 When thou givest them, they gather; by opening thy hand all are bountifully supplied. 29 But when thou deniest, they are troubled. Withdraw their breath, they die and return to their dust: 30 send forth thy breath and they are created: thou indeed canst renew the face of the earth. 31 Let the glory of the Lord endure forever; let the Lord rejoice over his works. 32 When he looketh at the earth, he causeth it to tremble; when he toucheth the mountains, they smoke. 33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live, I will praise my God while I have a being. 34 Let my meditation be acceptable to him, and I will rejoice in the Lord. 35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and the wicked so as to be no more; my soul, bless thou the Lord.

Psalms 19:1

1 For the conclusion. A Psalm by David. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaimeth the work of his hands.

Psalms 8:3-4

3 When I behold the heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and stars which thou hast established, 4 what is man that thou shouldst be mindful of him, or a son of man that thou shouldst visit him!
