'Skies' in the Bible
There is none like God, O Jeshurun [Israel], Who rides through the heavens to your help and in His majestic glory through the skies.
He made darkness His canopy around Him, gathering of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
He it is Who spreads out the northern skies over emptiness and hangs the earth upon or over nothing.
Look to the heavens and see; and behold the skies which are higher than you.
Which the skies pour down and drop abundantly upon [the multitudes of] mankind.
And now men cannot look upon the light when it is bright in the skies, when the wind has passed and cleared them.
He made darkness His secret hiding place; as His pavilion (His canopy) round about Him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds.
Ascribe power and strength to God; His majesty is over Israel, and His strength and might are in the skies.
The clouds poured down water, the skies sent out a sound [of rumbling thunder]; Your arrows went forth [in forked lightning].
For Your mercy and loving-kindness are great and high as the heavens! Your truth and faithfulness reach to the skies!
By His knowledge the deeps were broken up, and the skies distill the dew.
When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep,
All the host of the heavens shall be dissolved and crumble away, and the skies shall be rolled together like a scroll; and all their host [the stars and the planets] shall drop like a faded leaf from the vine, and like a withered fig from the fig tree.
Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it.
We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed. Forsake her and let us each go to his own country, for her guilt and the judgment against her reach to heaven and are lifted even to the skies.
