He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea.
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be.When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water;before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth.I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tentand lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
This is what God the Lord says— the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
