God called the canopy "sky." The twilight and the dawn were the second day.
Then God said, "Let there be lights across the sky to distinguish day from night, to act as signs for seasons, days, and years,
God placed them in space to shine on the earth,
you are wrapped in light like a garment, stretching out the sky like a curtain.
The heavens are declaring the glory of God, and their expanse shows the work of his hands.
Those who manifest wisdom will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who turn many to righteousness will shine like the stars for ever and ever.
Hallelujah! Praise God in his Holy Place. Praise him in his great expanse.
There was spread out over the heads of the living beings what looked like a canopy, in outward appearance resembling ice,
A sound came from above the canopy that was spread out over their heads. Whenever they stood still, they lowered their wings.
As I continued to watch, there on the expanse above the heads of the cherubim was a massive sapphire stone that resembled a throne in form and appearance.
