God called the expanse "sky." There was evening and there was morning, a second day.
God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of sky to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years;
God set them in the expanse of sky to give light to the earth,
He covers himself with light as with a garment. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain.
The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork.
Those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the expanse; and those who turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.
Praise Yah! Praise God in his sanctuary! Praise him in his heavens for his acts of power!
Over the head of the living creature there was the likeness of an expanse, like the awesome crystal to look on, stretched forth over their heads above.
There was a voice above the expanse that was over their heads: when they stood, they let down their wings.
Then I looked, and see, in the expanse that was over the head of the cherubim there appeared above them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne.
