The Stars

 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to provide light upon the earth, to rule over the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.  Genesis 1:17-18

Can you bind the chains of the cluster of stars called Pleiades, or loose the cords of the constellation Orion?  Can you lead forth the signs of the mazzaroth in their season?  Or can you guide the stars of the Bear with her young?  Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?  Can you establish their rule upon the earth?  Job 38:31-33

When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?  Job 38:7

For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash with their light; The sun will be dark when it rises, And the moon will not shed its light.  Isaiah 13:10

All the host of heaven will be dissolved, And the skies will be rolled up like a scroll; All their hosts [the stars] will also wither away As a leaf withers from the vine, And as a fig withers from the fig tree.  Isaiah 34:4

And [in my vision] this horn grew up to the host of heaven, and caused some of the host and some of the stars to fall to the earth, and it trampled on them.  Daniel 8:10

Those who are [spiritually] wise will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead many to righteousness, [will shine] like the stars forever and ever.  Daniel 12:3

The earth quakes before them, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.  Joel 2:10

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not provide its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  Matthew 24:29

There is a glory and beauty of the sun, another glory of the moon, and yet another [distinctive] glory of the stars; and one star differs from another in glory and brilliance.  1 Corinthians 15:41
