God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars.
The sun had risen on the earth when Lot came to Zoar.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
he will make your righteousness go forth as the light, and your justice as the noon day sun.
Do you indeed speak righteousness, silent ones? Do you judge blamelessly, you sons of men?
Let them be like a snail which melts and passes away, like the stillborn child, who has not seen the sun.
Yahweh will create over the whole habitation of Mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy.
For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
