The Heavens Glorify God
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep and God's spirit hovered over the water. God said."Let there be light", and there was light. God saw that the light was good and God divided light from darkness. God said,"Let there be a vault", in the waters to divide the waters in two." And so it was. God made the vault int he waters to divide the waters above the vault from the waters under the vault. God called the vault "heaven." Gen 1: 1-3
The heavens declare the glory of
God, the vault of heaven proclaims his handiwork; day discourses of it to day,
night to night hands on the knowledge.
No utterance at all, no speech, no sound that anyone can hear; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their message to the ends of the worrld. Ps 19: 1-2
Let heaven praise Yahweh: praise
him, heavenly heights,
praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his armies!
Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, shining stars,
praise him, highest heavens, and waters above the heavens! Ps 148:1-2
Yahweh Answers Job
.......When all the stars of the morning were singing with joy, and the Sons of God in chorus were chanting praise.... Who pent up the sea behind closed doorswhen it leapt tumultuous out of the womb, whne I wrapped it in a robe of mist and made balck clouds its swaddling bands; when I marked the bounds it was not to cross and made it fast with a bolted gate. Come thus far, I said and no farther, here your proud waves shall break. Have you ever in your life given orders to the morning or sent the dawn to its post, telling it to grasp the earth by its edges and shake the wicked out of it.
Can you fasten the harness of the Pleiades, or untie Irion's bands? Can you guide the morning start season by season and show the Bear and its cubs which way to go? Have you grasped the celestial laws?
