14 Then God said, “Let there be [a]lights in the [b]expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and they shall [c]serve as signs and for seasons, and for days and years;15 and they [d]shall serve as lights in the [e]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.16 God made the two great lights, the greater light [f]to govern the day, and the lesser light [g]to govern the night; He madethe stars also.17 God placed them in the [h]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,18 and [i]to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.

Deuteronomy 4:19New American Standard Bible (NASB)
19 And be careful not to raise your eyes to heaven and look at the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the heavenly [a]lights, and allow yourself to be drawn away and worship them and serve them, things which the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.
19 The heavens tell of the glory of God; And their expanse declares the work of His hands. 2 Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. 4 Their [a]line has gone out into all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, 5 Which is like a groom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices like a strong person to run his course. 6 Its rising is from [b]one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the [c]other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7 To Him who made the great lights, For His faithfulness is everlasting: 8 The sun to rule [a]by day, For His faithfulness is everlasting, 9 The moon and stars to rule [b]by night, For His faithfulness is everlasting.
