It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Who alone stretches out the heavens And tramples down the waves of the sea;
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
"Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding,
And He built His sanctuary like the heights, Like the earth which He has founded forever.
Praise Him, highest heavens, And the waters that are above the heavens!
The LORD by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens.
For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, but formed it to be inhabited), "I am the LORD, and there is none else.
It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom, And by His understanding He stretched out the heavens.
Then God said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."
"He stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing.
For He has founded it upon the seas And established it upon the rivers.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The LORD has clothed and girded Himself with strength; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.
Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.
To Him who made the heavens with skill, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;
How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,
Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son's name? Surely you know!
Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it,
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,
"It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it I stretched out the heavens with My hands And I ordained all their host.
"Surely My hand founded the earth, And My right hand spread out the heavens; When I call to them, they stand together.
Thus says the LORD, "In a favorable time I have answered You, And in a day of salvation I have helped You; And I will keep You and give You for a covenant of the people, To restore the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages;
When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the wind from His storehouses.
'Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You,
The burden of the word of the LORD concerning Israel. Thus declares the LORD who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him,
All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him.
