God called the expanse “sky.” Evening came and then morning: the second day.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night. They will serve as signs for festivals and for days and years.
God placed them in the expanse of the sky to provide light on the earth,
He wraps Himself in light as if it were a robe,
spreading out the sky like a canopy,
For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky proclaims the work of His hands.
Those who are wise will shine
like the bright expanse of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness,
like the stars forever and ever.
Praise God in His sanctuary.
Praise Him in His mighty heavens.
The shape of an expanse, with a gleam like awe-inspiring crystal, was spread out over the heads of the living creatures.
A voice came from above the expanse over their heads; when they stood still, they lowered their wings.
Then I looked, and there above the expanse over the heads of the cherubim was something like sapphire stone resembling the shape of a throne that appeared above them.
