In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Jehovah says: Who created the heavens? He who is God. He fashioned and made the earth. He founded it and he did not create it to be empty but formed it to be inhabited. He says: I am Jehovah, and there is no other.
By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the Word of God. The visible has been made out of things that were not visible.
You are worthy, Jehovah our God, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and because of your will they are and were created.
God created the heavens and stretched them out. He fashioned the earth and all that lives there. He gave life and breath to all its people. And now Jehovah God says to his servant:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was like God (God-like).
The God that made the world and all things in it is the Lord of heaven and earth. He does not live in temples made with hands.
And, You, Lord, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands. (Psalm 102:25)
Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them in six days. He rested on the seventh day. Therefore Jehovah blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
But to us there is but one God, the Father. All things come from him and we live for him. And there is one Lord Jesus Christ. All things were made through him and we were made through him.
I am Jehovah, your savior. I am the one who created you. I am Jehovah, the Creator of all things. I alone stretched out the heavens! No one helped me when I made the earth (I was by myself) (Who was with me?).
They said: Sirs, why do you do these things? We are only men like you. We bring you good news. You should turn from these worthless things to the living God. He is the God who made heaven and earth, the sea and all things.
All things in the heavens and upon the earth where created through him. The things visible and invisible were created through him. Whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and for him.
You are Jehovah, even you only! You made heaven, the heaven of heavens with all their armies, the earth and all things in it, the seas and everything in them. You keep them from destruction and the armies of heaven are your worshippers.
The heavens were made by the word of Jehovah, and by the breath of his mouth their entire host.
You send out your Spirit, and they are created. You renew the face of the earth.
He made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them. He keeps truth (faith) forever!
Praise him, you highest heaven and the water above the sky.
Jehovah created me in the beginning of his way, before his works of antiquity.
Remember your Creator (Hebrew: Bara', plural, Creators denotes majesty) (Ge 1:26) in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near. You will say: I have no pleasure in them.
O Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.
Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? The being that brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name created all these! Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? JEHOVAH IS THE EVERLASTING GOD, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and no one can measure (find out) his understanding.
You forget Jehovah your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. Will you live in constant terror of the human oppressor, who is bent on your destruction? Will you fear your enemies from morning until night?
I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand (protection of my power, Holy Spirit). I set the heavens in place and laid the foundations of the earth. Yet I say to Zion: 'You are my people!'
He who made the earth by his power, and established the world by his wisdom; also stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
Ah Lord Jehovah! You have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for you.
Jehovah made the earth by his power. By his wisdom he created the world and stretched out the heavens.
The prophetic utterance of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Jehovah declared: Who stretches forth the heavens? Who lays the foundation of the earth? Who forms the spirit of man within him?
Then Jesus prayed: I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth. You have hidden these things from the wise and understanding, and have revealed them to children. (Acts 2:36)
The tribulation in these days will be greater then there has ever been from the beginning of God's creation until now, and never shall be.
When they heard they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said: Jehovah, you are God, who made heaven and earth, the sea and all in them.
That which is known about God is clear to them, for God revealed it to them.
To make all men see what is the administration of the secret which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things.
He has in these last days spoken to us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things, through whom he made the ages (Greek: aion: ages of time, perpetuity, worlds, generations, human entities).
For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water and amidst water, by the word of God,
We have heard that which was from the beginning. We have also seen it with our own eyes. We looked at it and touched it with our hands. It is the Word of life.
To the angel of the congregation in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation says this:
And he swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that are in it, and the earth, and the things that are in it, and the sea, and the things there, that there would be no more delay.
He spoke in a loud voice: Respect God, and give him glory! The hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And he said to me: It is done! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him who thirsts from the fountain of the water of life freely.
When God finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, He gave him the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.
This is because all the gods of the nations are useless idols while Jehovah created the heavens.
When I look at your heavens, the creation of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have set in place,
He spoke and it was done! He commanded and it stood fast.
The heavens and the earth are yours. You have founded the world and all it contains.
Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and its inhabitants, you are God from everlasting to everlasting.
O Jehovah, how many are your works! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your possessions.
Behold! I WILL CREATE A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.
