  • Job 9:7-10 ESV
    who commands the sun, and it does not rise;
        who seals up the stars;
    who alone stretched out the heavens
        and trampled the waves of the sea;

        the Pleiades and the chambers of the south;
    10 who does great things beyond searching out,
        and marvelous things beyond number.

  • Psalm 19:1-6 ESV
    The heavens declare the glory of God,
        and the sky above[proclaims his handiwork.
    Day to day pours out speech,
        and night to night reveals knowledge.
    There is no speech, nor are there words,
        whose voice is not heard.
    Their voice[b] goes out through all the earth,
        and their words to the end of the world.
    In them he has set a tent for the sun,
        which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
        and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
    Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
        and its circuit to the end of them,
        and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
  • Psalm 33:6-7 ESV
    By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
        and by the breath of his mouth all their host.

        he puts the deeps in storehouses.

        and as long as the moon, throughout all generations!

        the sun knows its time for setting.
  • Psalm 136:7-9 ESV
    to him who made the great lights,
        for his steadfast love endures forever;
    the sun to rule over the day,
        for his steadfast love endures forever;
    the moon and stars to rule over the night,
        for his steadfast love endures forever;

        calling them all by name;
    by the greatness of his might
        and because he is strong in power,
        not one is missing.
  • Jeremiah 31:35 ESV
    Thus says the Lord,
    who gives the sun for light by day
        and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
    who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—
        the Lord of hosts is his name:
  • Amos 5:8 ESV
    He who made the Pleiades and Orion,
        and turns deep darkness into the morning
        and darkens the day into night,
    who calls for the waters of the sea
        and pours them out on the surface of the earth,
    the Lord is his name;
