These are the records of the heavens and the earth, concerning their creation at the time that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
God called the dry land "earth," and He called the gathering of the water "seas." And God saw that it was good.
For the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy.
It is a sign forever between Me and the Israelites, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, but on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed."
Then Hezekiah prayed before the LORD: "LORD God of Israel who is enthroned [above] the cherubim, You are God-- You alone-- of all the kingdoms of the earth. You made the heavens and the earth.
Hiram also said: May the LORD God of Israel, who made the heavens and the earth, be praised! He gave King David a wise son with insight and understanding, who will build a temple for the LORD and a royal palace for himself.
You alone are the LORD. You created the heavens, the highest heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them, and the heavenly host worships You.
Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours. The world and everything in it-- You founded them.
North and south-- You created them. Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Your name.
You have a mighty arm; Your hand is powerful; Your right hand is lifted high.
He wraps Himself in light as if it were a robe, spreading out the sky like a canopy,
He made the heavens skillfully. His love is eternal.
He spread the land on the waters. His love is eternal.
He made the great lights: His love is eternal.
the sun to rule by day, His love is eternal.
the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them. He remains faithful forever,
This is what God the LORD says-- who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and life to those who walk on it--
For this is what the LORD says-- God is the Creator of the heavens. He formed the earth and made it; He established it; He did not create it to be empty, [but] formed it to be inhabited-- "I am the LORD, and there is no other.
My own hand founded the earth, and My right hand spread out the heavens; when I summoned them, they stood up together.
"For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
"For I will create a new heaven and a new earth; the past events will not be remembered or come to mind.
He made the earth by His power, established the world by His wisdom, and spread out the heavens by His understanding.
Jacob's Portion is not like these because He is the One who formed all things. Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; the LORD of Hosts is His name.
An Oracle The word of the LORD concerning Israel. A declaration of the LORD, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundation of the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him.
When they heard this, they raised their voices to God unanimously and said, "Master, You are the One who made the heaven, the earth, and the sea, and everything in them.
(for we who have believed enter the rest), in keeping with what He has said: So I swore in My anger, they will not enter My rest. And yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world,
When you look to the heavens and see the sun, moon, and stars-- all the array of heaven-- do not be led astray to bow down and worship them. The LORD your God has provided them for all people everywhere under heaven.

He rebuilt the high places that his father Hezekiah had destroyed and reestablished the altars for Baal. He made an Asherah, as King Ahab of Israel had done; he also worshiped the whole heavenly host and served them.
He would build altars in the LORD's temple, where the LORD had said, "Jerusalem is where I will put My name."
He built altars to the whole heavenly host in both courtyards of the LORD's temple.
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.
All the heavenly bodies will dissolve. The skies will roll up like a scroll, and their stars will all wither as leaves wither on the vine, and foliage on the fig tree.
Look up and see: who created these? He brings out the starry host by number; He calls all of them by name. Because of His great power and strength, not one of them is missing.
Jacob, why do you say, and Israel, why do you assert: "My way is hidden from the LORD, and my claim is ignored by my God"?
Do you not know? Have you not heard? Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the whole earth. He never grows faint or weary; there is no limit to His understanding.
I made the earth, and created man on it. It was My hands that stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host.
They will be exposed to the sun, the moon, and the whole heavenly host, which they have loved, served, followed, pursued, and worshiped. [Their bones] will not be collected and buried but will become like manure on the surface of the soil.
Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
