The heavens were made by the word of the LORD, and all the stars, by the breath of His mouth.
For He spoke, and it came into being; He commanded, and it came into existence.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded, and they were created.
Reaching out His hand He touched him, saying, "I am willing; be made clean." Immediately his disease was healed.
After He said this, He shouted with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
Look, He spreads His lightning around Him and covers the depths of the sea.
Where is the road to the home of light? [Do you know] where darkness lives,
Light dawns for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart.
He wraps Himself in light as if it were a robe, spreading out the sky like a canopy,
The LORD is God and has given us light. Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
I form light and create darkness, I make success and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.
The sun will no longer be your light by day, and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you; but the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your splendor.
That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.
The true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
"This, then, is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil.
For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness"-- He has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God's glory in the face of Jesus Christ.
For you were once darkness, but now [you are] light in the Lord. Walk as children of light--
for what makes everything clear is light. Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.
the only One who has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom none of mankind has seen or can see, to whom be honor and eternal might. Amen.
Now this is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him.
Yet I am writing you a new command, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.
